Testimonials

This chandelier is so beautiful.  The craftsmanship is beyond anything in the pictures shown.  It appears as though the branches were harvested just as they were budding out.  Absolutely breathtaking and for sure a statement piece!  S. Anthony

So happy with my branch chandelier.  We decided to hang it 42" off the table surface to fill the cathedral ceiling space better and so as not to obstruct the lake view.  I can't thank you enough for all your help and advice.  I think I have the perfect style and size chandelier for my place.  L. Meakin

I received my branchelier yesterday!  OMG I LOVE IT.  It is beautiful!!!  You guys have an amazing product.  Thank you so very much.  When I complete my dining room in a few months I will definitely send you a picture.  Thanks again!  T. Beck

We installed the branch chandelier you recently made for me - it looks awesome!!!!  Thanks so much for all the effort in "tweaking" it and making it look great...  R. Liotta


History

Wish Designs USA was founded by entrepreneur and designer Deanna Wish in 1978. The company was started with one bentwood hickory rocker sold mail order. Deanna Wish spearheaded the Amish Country movement, designing an array of bent wood style furnishings including dining, bedroom and occasional pieces.

As the furniture became more mainstream Wish stylized her designs to appeal to the designer trade. Lighting was introduced and is the main focus to date.

The rug division Tigerrags began in the early days as well. It spawned from an Amish rug making technique where scraps and worn clothing were recycled into scatter rugs known a “dust catchers”. Today product is fashioned from ultra-suede and leather cuttings. The durability of these fabrics and modern on trend colors make for lasting, eye catching, texture whether used inside or out. Tigerrags rugs and pillows are made in the USA custom creations that cannot only include your choice of colors but incorporate borders, designs and logos all while being machine washable regardless of size.

Wish Designs USA is a second-generation company. Owner and designer Merit Wish and husband Ron Phillips operate the Pennsylvania based company.

Founder, Deanna Wish, (1941-2010) was the embodiment of the term entrepreneur. She was a graduate of Youngstown State University. She majored in English and through a graduate assistant program funded the startup of Wish Designs USA.
Deanna was an early proponent of the Amish country movement. In its onset the business also offered Amish
made quilts. The rug division Tigerrags is another product line that Deanna lifted from humble country settings and reconstructed to fit our modern, contemporary world. She was a driving force that brought the bentwood style rocker from country porches to the international
market. Deanna Wish was responsible for the creation of many of the bentwood designs of dining, living and occasional furniture seen in the market today.
