Our Story

Boxwood was born out of the idea that our homes should be as vibrant and colorful as the people who live in them. We offer a range of unique home decor and gifts from picture frames and candles to upcycled furniture and pillows. We also carry Annie Sloan(R) Chalk Paint(R) and conduct a number of creative workshops.
