Local businesses Created Hardwood and T.Y. Fine Furniture showcase rustic home furnishings.

Rustic furnishings—whether they’re made from maple, oak, cherry, ash or other woods—provide a unique character that can steal the spotlight in any room. Central Ohio is blessed with some new and emerging companies creating textured and organic furnishings from trees that have grown within the state. The latest showroom to open is Created Hardwood Ltd., 16 W. Poplar Ave. in the Short North, where tables, chairs, desks and other items can be customized in sizes, woods and other special treatments. T.Y. Fine Furniture, 4555 N. High St., is another store featuring custom products.
