Rustic Furniture Limited

Willow Creek, MT 59760
Diane Ross has been designing custom western furniture for nearly 30 years. Her work has been featured in numerous magazines and books and represented by galleries from Wyoming to Italy. Every year since 1993 she has been juried into the Western Design Conference, in Cody, Wyoming, one of furniture making's most prestigious shows. Today, she lives and works on a beautiful ranch that borders the Jefferson River, right outside Willow Creek, Montana.
Diane grew up in the West, spending her time climbing trees and catching snakes. Early on she found she had a knack for digging deep into willow patches. When she began gathering wood for her furniture, her natural love of those hidden wild places both inspired her art and provided the raw material for it.
From the faded red of old barns to the dusty ochre of coyote willows, Diane's close attention to the details of the western landscape give a sense of breathing room to her pieces. Many of her intricate willow patterns have been inspired by northern plains Native American bead work designs and built with wood reclaimed from old cabins or hand cut from mountain forests.
