Mike Landquist helped start Rustic Wood Furnishings in 2000, with the idea to create one-of-a-kind rustic furniture pieces from local wood, and sell them on the wholesale market. As these designs grew in popularity, Mike was bothered by the fact that, by the time they arrived on showroom floor, the markup on their work made it nearly unaffordable. The furniture designed and built to be enjoyed by everyday people was priced out of reach for most of them.
Eventually, once retail space became available, Mike and company jumped at the chance to open a storefront in Park Rapids, MN, essentially cutting out the middle man and putting unique, handmade products back into the hands of the people they had originally intended should enjoy them.
At Landquist Rustic Wood Furnishings, we are proud to employ some of the most talented rustic furniture crafters in the nation. None of the wood in any of our creations is ever milled, and there are no restrictions on what our craftsmen can build. Because our work is meant to last a lifetime, it comes with a 100% customer satisfaction guarantee. We are excited to be one of the few furniture builders with an on-site showroom where customers can browse our existing inventory for immediate purchase, or gain inspiration for custom-built pieces.
Nothing beats the warm, organic feel of wood, and our artisans will help you design and create rustic furniture that fits well with any décor, from contemporary to old west and from farmhouse to up-north cabin inspired.
We also have chainsaw carvings available for purchase in our showroom, or our carvers can help you custom design something that will fit your style. Because, like so many others, we find chainsaw art fascinating, we occasionally host live carving demonstrations. Contact the store for more information on dates and times.
