Ruth Conklin Gallery offers the Midwest’s largest selection of Sticks® design furniture and art objects
Sarah Grant, founder of Sticks, is a dear friend of the Ruth Conklin Gallery and calls the Glen Arbor area her "favorite place on earth." It was her summer visits to Glen Lake and the Sleeping Bear Dunes that had originally influenced the beautiful, nationally acclaimed folk-art furniture and art object selections that have become Sticks.

Sticks was started by Sarah Grant in 1992. Since then, Sticks has received national acclaim for their distinctive line of furniture, accessories and object art. The company began by designing smaller items such as ornaments and candlesticks, and has evolved to feature larger items such as dining sets, beds and armoires. Each piece is handcrafted within Sticks' award winning studio in Des Moines, Iowa.
All pieces are finely crafted from birch, poplar and driftwood. The pieces are further designed with hand drawn imagery, etched contouring and vibrantly blended paint. Pieces can be embellished with 3-D wood components, metal, leather and fabric.
The entire Sticks line is constantly evolving due to the imagination of their design team and the many talented craft artisans that they employ. Every piece they produce can be personalized to feature themes, imagery or colors that reflect your own unique vision and style. Please visit the design it yourself studio page to place a custom order for any of the pieces available on this site.
