Kelly Maxwell grew up in Kuna, ID on his grandparent’s farm where he learned the value of hard work. From an early age, he enjoyed nature and exploring all it has to offer, always anticipating the wonder around each corner in epic playgrounds such as Owyhee and Sawtooth mountain ranges. Along with the vast Snake River plains, his explorations deepened his love for nature.
In late 2000, while working as a paramedic in Georgia. Cathy, Kelly’s wife asked if he could build rustic furniture for his stepdaughter’s wedding. Over the next few months, he built several pieces, from simple log tables to log benches. Although he had no formal woodworking training he jumped into furniture-building.
Kelly Maxwell Furniture maker
Encouraged by friends and family, he began selling his rustic furniture at craft fairs. While working under the name Littlebranch Farm, he designed a line of natural wood furniture such as dining tables, beds, and vanities, all made from live edge wood, along with other discarded natural materials found in nature. While Kelly Maxwell is not against controlled selective harvesting, he does believe in being responsible when it comes to the environment by choosing to use natural materials discarded in nature along with salvaged and dead standing trees. After many years of honing his skills as a furniture maker, he still learns something new each day as he looks for the perfect rustic artisan furniture design!
Moreover, he lives for the adventure. What if the only limit is the imagination.
