Ryan Williams was born and raised here in Indianapolis. His professional background is in retail and sales but he always had a knack for creativity as a screen printer and sign maker for local companies early in his career. He is married to Shauna, who assists him with the behind the scenes work so he can focus on building. They have 2 sons, Coleton and Shaun.
Indiana Farm Table was born accidentally a few years back when the Williams family moved into a new home and needed a dining room table. Shauna had found her dream table on Pinterest and Ryan built it. Long story short... they ended up selling that table (and 2 more just like it) and realized they were on to something! So Ryan posted on Facebook to see if there was interest. While sitting on the couch that night watching TV, he sold 3 tables to perfect strangers. IFT was born!
Within 6 weeks, Ryan had to quit his full time job as a retail manager to keep up with the demand. They figured when it slowed down he could go work part time somewhere, but almost 5 years later, that day has yet to come.
