Rick, owner of a nine acre farm in Wooster Ohio, began collecting fallen Willow twig sapling branches, and as inspiration took over, he started fashioning furniture, shelving, and chairs from the Willows. He mixed in other found objects like metal, wood, stones, copper, and old barnboard, and his wife Denise added whimsy with bold color, and before they knew it, Around the Bend Willow Furniture became their life and their love. “A traditional and contemporary blend of furnishings for the home and garden,” is their trademark.
Today’s Grommet, a one-of-a-kind mirror, is hand-built and of a unique design. Rick’s finds have turned into a housewarming gift, wedding present, or Father’s Day gift that will be treasured forever.
