Our New Willow Furniture
The following pages are devoted to a few superb
Willo-Weave designs and for excellence of materials and
workmanship, symmetry and l.eauly of outline, these
pieces are in a class with our justly famous Mission and
Bungalow furniture, and discriminating taste could not
select two types of furniture, so radically different in
materials and construction, thai would harmonize more
perfectly in the same rooms.
In response to this insistent demand for some lighter, daintier design in furniture that can be used in the
same rooms with Ihe Mission and Hung:.low furniture, and
still keep the harmony of style and proportions as well as
the soft lustrous finish has resulted in 1.ringing out a line
of hand woven willow furniture that has the supple sturdy
strength of the Mission style but incomparable with in it
These pieces are all made of selected imported
French stock and arc entirely hand made by workmen who
learned the art of weaving it in their native land. Nowhere else except in the genuine willow can you find the
style, durability, quality and that indefinable something
that makes it so different from the reed, fibre or rattan
furniture that has flooded the stores of our cities.
Willo-Weave is not intended as an appeal to
cheapness—the cost of the imported stock and the whole
hand-work process makes it impossible for these pieces
to compete in price with the machine made reed, fibre
or rattan furniture.

Finish—The WILLO-WEAVE may be stained
with the same soft colors as the Mission furniture and in
finish harmonize perfectly with it. A rich toned brown
will harmonize with our Dark Weathered, Nut Brown,
Fumed, Flemish or C.olden Oak, a greenish color that will
harmonize with the Early English or Green Weathered,
and a reddish color that will harmonize with our Old
English, English Oak or it may be used in the same room
with mahogany fnrnilure wilhout seeming out of place.
Cushions—Each piece (except where specified
otherwise), is listed without a cushion. Many will prefer
to make their own cushions or pads out of some of the
light colored and dainty patterns in Chintz, Chambray,
Cretonne, or in the figured or plain denims or tapestry
fabrics. However, at the extra prices specified below, we
will furnish cushions to fit the different pieces: Figured
denim, $1.00 each; Imperial leather, $1.2.5; genuine cow
hide, $1.75, and genuine imported roan skin, $2.00.
Prices—For the prices shown under each piece
we will completely finish the fnrnilure in any color specified above, or we will ship the piece "in the white." Many-
will prefer the piece unfinished in the natural color of the
willow itself and where the willow is to be used in a room
with white or cream enameled fnrnilure, the natural color
would be preferable. Cushions furnished at the extra
prices shown above. Samples of the figured denims will
be sent on request.
All prices are f.o.b. Ann Arbor, Mich., or Toledo, O.,
and include packing. All willow pieces will be shipped
completely "set-up" and will take a higher freight rate
than the sectional Mission furniture, but as the willow
pieces are so extremely light, the total freight on a single
piece will hardly equal the freight on a similar piece in
oak. The weights shown are the shipping weights and
include weight of cushion.
Specify the color of stain desired or all WILLO-
WEAVE will be shipped in the white, unstained.
