Nashville native Aram Terry was assigned to Nicaragua as a Peace Corps volunteer in 2002. There, he developed an interest in sustainable forestry and later began to plant and manage tree farms on land ravaged by cattle farming. The company was founded in 2007 to plant trees and to develop and market wood products. Co-founder Abril Zepeda, Aram’s wife, provides innovative design, including the colorful patterns woven into the seats and backs of the Hammock Lounger - a colorful interpretation of the classic Hans Wegner design. Born and raised in Masaya, a city in Nicaragua known for its artisan crafts and market, Abril envisioned elaborating local designs and bringing the crafts of her home to the rest of the world.
Their company is truly a family affair, with Aram’s brother, artist Justin Terry, and their father,
Nashville attorney Michael Terry, also joining forces to develop Masaya.
“Coming down to Nashville from New York and encountering Aram & Abril’s line and its story, we were immediately entranced. Their conscientious practices, combined with their gorgeous product captures
much of the merging of outside/inside worlds that Wilder is all about” says Ivy of Wilder. Josh furthers: “We are excited to share these beautiful pieces with our customers, and pass on the opportunity to own some quality, sustainable designs at a terrific price.”
