Mark Nicholson developed a passion for rustic furniture and decor at a young age, while spending summers at his family's camp in Maine. The home was built in the early 1900's and featured Hickory stick furnishings as well as stick knobs and latches on the doors. After college, Mark moved to Colorado where he became an apprentice for a rustic furniture builder. He has been building and designing rustic furniture for over 20 years now. His retail/woodworking business is in its 18th year, located in Dublin, New Hampshire.
