A few years ago I decided that I had had enough of the corporate world and decided to strike out on my own. There seemed to be a lack of great contemporary home items that weren't too slick or too expensive. I figured if I couldn't find them, maybe they weren't there. So, with all of my savings, a few sketches and a desk in my guest bedroom, I started Wingard. A rather daunting task, but well worth the risk I thought.
A little blood, a lot of sweat and even a few tears later I had a company. On these pages you'll find the results of the effort. It's a clean, contemporary collection of home accent pieces at reasonable prices.
Each is lovingly designed and made with close attention to material and details. They work in the most modern setting or can add a contemporary air to more traditional settings (my mom even has a few of the vases next to the Lazy-boy).
I hope you like what you see.
