The Wooden Swing, Co. is a second generation family owned business that was started in 1978 by Jim and Royce Piper. When they first started Jim and Royce juggled running the new business and raising their growing family. Jim handled sales and installations while Royce took care of the kids. On days that Jim installed play sets, Royce would cart her two small children down to the store and let them play while she worked.
In 1982 The Wooden Swing, Co. moved to their Inwood Rd. location in Dallas, which is where the store remains to this day. Over the years the company grew and they picked up several lines of furniture to sell, along with other items like trampolines and basketball goals.
After running the store for over 35 years Jim & Royce decided to retire in 2015. They sold the store to their daughter, Rebecca (my wife) and I (Dustin). Soon after moving to Dallas, we had our first child and history seems to be repeating itself. Now I handle the day-to-day operations of the store while Rebecca handles all of the buying for the store and designs all the displays. We both juggle working at the store and raising our son, Holden.
Having a small child of our own, we noticed a lack of quality baby furniture in the DFW area, so we decided to expand our business to carry baby furniture. The Wooden Swing, Co. is now the exclusive dealer for Baby’s Dream and Romina furniture in Dallas. We also carry a wide variety baby bedding, accessories and nursing chairs.
For the past 39 years The Wooden Swing, Co. has been a proud family business with an emphasis on quality products and top notch customer service. My wife and I plan on upholding this reputation for many years to come.
