History of willow

Stick furniture has been around since man has wanted to sit down. China paintings from 1000 years ago show rustic stick chairs being used as furniture. There are many types of pieces, including stick, log, and bentwood. The bentwood chair can be traced back primarily to Europe. Settlers brought this design with them when they immigrated to North America.

This type of rustic furniture was very popular in the late 1800's and up to the early 1930's. Willow furniture has made a very strong comeback in the past 15 year period. Hand-crafted rustic willow furniture adds beauty to your landscaping, home, garden, or cottage.

There are approximately 170 different kinds of willow in this continent and many species have become hybrid over the years.

Bent willow furniture and rustic willow furniture pieces can also be crafted from hardwood trees. If you live in an area that has an abundance of this type of tree, do not hesitate to use hardwood material for your framing and support pieces for wood furniture.


Traditionally for the office people use antique furniture and antique effect furniture. Office furniture online has changed from modern back to old and I am sure it is only a matter of time before we see willow furniture used in an increasingly diverse application.
