2014 - Present
At Willow and Stump we design wood-based furniture for clients who are looking to incorporate unique, quality furniture pieces into their homes. We specialize in products that function in a variety of living spaces, including condominiums and other multi-unit housing.
Willow and Stump is comprised of design partners Kalyca Ryan and Bram Sawatzky. We met in the University of Alberta's Industrial Design program in 2008, and came together out of a shared passion for woodwork and innovative furniture design. We moved to Vancouver, BC after graduating in order to take advantage of the unique opportunities offered by the city lifestyle and the diverse coastal landscape.
Urban density makes Vancouver one of the most livable cities in North America (we love it here). But density means that living space is at a premium. We realize the need to maximize the use of smaller living areas through highly functional and multipurpose furniture. Inspired by the natural BC landscape and the unique living requirements of the Lower Mainland, we work with a combination of wood technology and new materials to create designs that are fresh, graceful, and functional.
