Home & Willow is the proud exclusive Indiana dealer of Norwalk Furniture, a one-hundred-year-plus manufacturer of high quality custom upholstery in Norwalk, Ohio. Founded in 1902 and located in Norwalk, Ohio, they manufacture custom, made-to-order, upholstered furniture.
Their tradition of handcrafting fine custom upholstery began when the founders, the Gerken family, newly arrived from Germany, began to upholster buggy seats for carriages 117 years ago. In 2008, the fourth generation of the family decided to close the company. But, twelve community-minded families banded together to buy the facility in order to keep jobs in their town.
They proudly manufacture American made high quality custom upholstery furniture in Norwalk, Ohio. Located halfway between Detroit and Cleveland on Lake Erie. They’re people who like to “make things” and are especially proud to be a part of the current “maker movement” in America.
So you can rest assured that you are getting a good, safe, quality handcrafted product. We feel products made in the USA are far superior than imported goods.
LOCALLY BUILT & SOURCED
These products are handcrafted in the USA with a focus on using American suppliers and local artisans so consumers can be confident about their Norwalk purchase.
These materials come from responsible suppliers here in the U.S. who are concerned about consumers health and safety.
Today, Norwalk operates in a “mid-century” modern 440,000 square foot factory that employees 225 craftspeople, many of whom are second and third generation artisans. This team creates over 40,000 pieces each year, one at a time, by hand, with each piece built to the specifications of our dealer partners for their customers.
What differentiates the quality of one sofa or chair from another is hidden beneath the fabric. It begins with the frame. The materials and methods used in construction are what will ultimately determine how long-lasting your furniture will be.
At Home & Willow, we offer an endless selection of products by building relationships with the industry’s best. Our team is here to help you turn your vision into reality by offering exquisite designs, with top tier products, at a quality price.
