Our Story

We founded Willow & Grace Designs to prove that stylish and premium quality does not have to cost an arm and a leg.


A FATHER’S INSIGHT 


Our journey began decades ago, before we realized exactly what our journey was. As a growing family with two young children, I wanted to create a home that was as equally full of beauty as it was love, but felt that I would have to sacrifice quality for what I could afford. By sheer luck, I met a man that would give me the tools and skills that would change our lives. Rea Anderson, a master craftsman, gave me an offer that set the direction of my journey, “Come help me in my shop, and it will only cost you the price of the wood.” 



THE GREATEST BLESSING


At this time, I was fortunate enough to bring my 5-year-old daughter, Suzanne, and 4-year-old son, Sean to our shop, (I actually had no choice…I was the babysitter). These two stayed busy exploring our warehouse on their bicycles, and tinkering around trying to build their own creations, which normally ended up being a piece of wood with nails sticking out of it. 

Little did any of us know that this warehouse would build a passion and keen eye for style in all three of us.  Together we decided to create and build one more beautiful piece of our story, Willow and Grace Designs. This company is truly a labor of love and family. All the way down to the name, which was born from my two beautiful granddaughters. 


LESSONS LEARNED


After building hundreds of pieces of furniture and home decor together, I learned from Rea that a beautiful handmade piece of furniture created from the best materials and from a place of love and passion does not need to come with a ridiculous price tag. They say the home is where the heart is, and we stand by this motto. A home is a place for family, friends, and love and we wanted our products to help bring that to life for you, regardless of what is in your wallet.
