They Make Custom Cowboy Decor
Rick has been involved with rodeo and leather most of his life. He and his wife, Rhonda, opened their first business in 1973. A friend created a website and posts photos on Facebook, Rhonda notes, which is a good place to get ideas about the variety of items they offer. But if you don’t live nearby, she suggests calling her at the store to find exactly what you need.
It may be on hand, but if not, Rick can customize everything from briefcases and lampshades to scabbards and saddles to sofas.
An old wingback chair purchased from an antique store started their venture into furniture. Rick reupholstered it in leather and cowhide and soon got requests for more.
He won the Switchback Award at the Cody Western Design Conference with a fainting couch that features leather, cowhide with hair, and a longhorn horn. The combination of materials sets their work apart according to one judge. They’ve shipped furniture from coast to coast.
Rick is also known for making trophy saddles. Besides cowhide leather, he uses exotic leathers such as ostrich, elephant and alligator. From bible covers to diaper bags and gunstocks, he can add a cowboy look to anything with leather tooling and studs.
