Willie Atwell's Profile
To enter my shop click here:
My parents were antique dealers in the Midwest specializing in American furniture, particularly in the primitive/ country vein. I grew up around items like dough boxes, carpenter's chests, jelly cupboards, dry sinks, immigrant's trunks, harvest tables, pie safes and bucket benches.
I'm drawn to old, simply-designed, utilitarian furniture: items made by individuals of little means because they were needed around the house or farm.
It is in this spirit I make my pieces.
