In 1986, Accent Equipment (as they were then known) was established in Manitoba as a small family business.
Accent Environments has served the northwestern section of Ontario, Manitoba, North Dakota and South Dakota for these 30+ years. Committed to quality, they have partnered with some of the top school Furniture Manufacturers to ensure they deliver this. Replacement furniture orders, small projects, and entire school fit outs are the regular fare of Accent Environments.
Accent is looked to as a thought leader and innovator in educational strategies. Their passion for every student to find their ‘Just Right Zone for learning’ has created a strong desire among educators and administrators to partner with Accent. They are so much more than just good furniture. They fully believe and endorse what Paul Stevens (Owner and Principal Architect, ZAS Architects + Interiors Inc., Toronto) says: “It’s about creating a hands-on, experiential learning condition that allows students to absorb and apply the content. This work is happening in active classrooms, with all the technology and flexible multifunctional furniture.”
