Who Is LeStick?
LeStick Furniture Designs for Kids is run by a husband-and-wife team, Theresa and Dwayne LeGros. Dwayne grew up in rural Ohio, where his father taught him much about the woodworking trade. After running a white-collar business for five years, he decided it was time to return to something a bit closer to his heart, and his hands. Theresa, on the other hand, grew up with training in the arts, including design and painting, which she is happy to apply to functional art.
We decided to concentrate on making toddler and twin beds after our own difficult searches for fun, quality, and affordable beds for our sons. The name LeStick was born out of my older son's fear of riding a ski lift alone, and so I fashioned him a little man called "LeStick" out of twigs and pine cones at the top of the mountain. I told him that LeStick needed someone to ride with because he was scared, and my son boldly volunteered, riding down the mountain while loudly comforting LeStick.
Ever since, every wood design we've created in our home has been dubbed LeStick. Now the little French conifer is venturing out into the world in the form of beds. We hope our designs bring as much delight to your children as they have to ours!
