Home & Willow is the proud exclusive Indiana dealer of Norwalk Furniture. Norwalk Furniture Company manufactures high quality custom upholstery in Norwalk, Ohio. Located halfway between Detroit and Cleveland on Lake Erie, they benefit from a tradition of family farming and manufacturing that has long supported the automobile and related industries. They’re people who like to “make things” and we are especially proud to be a part of the current “maker movement” in America.
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.
Today, Norwalk Furniture operates in a “mid-century” modern 440,000 square foot factory that employs 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.
Made in America. Hand-Crafted with Pride. For some, “Made in America” is a thing of the past — yet at Vanguard Furniture, the term resonates with over 600 associates. They proudly continue to craft upholstery and hand-finish casegoods in America using techniques that may seem old-fashioned, but set their products apart in quality. Craftsmanship by skilled artisans every step of the way elevates their furniture to works of fine art.
Hardwood frames and a multi-step hand-finishing process create a solid and enduring piece that can be passed down for generations.
Vanguard’s skilled artisans hand-apply all finishes, taking careful steps to make sure that each piece has the care and attention that is required to enhance the natural character of the furniture. Using a tried and true 8-way hand-tied spring system that creates a flexible yet supportive base for maximum comfort. Each piece is then upholstered by hand — every cut, stitch, quilt, button, nail trim, and more; brought to life by skilled and practiced hands to bring your vision to life. No two pieces are the same — every piece of furniture is truly unique.
It might seem outdated in today’s world of automation, but this hand-crafted quality and craftsmanship simply can’t be matched.
