HOW It ALL StartED
Boxwood started when two strangers, Joanna Szczerban and Leah Donahue, met by chance. Joanna was looking for a new business partner and Leah was just looking for a desk. After a whirlwind two months, the pair opened Boxwood on April 13, 2019. Their goal is to provide fun, eclectic decor and gifts because homes should be as vibrant and colorful as the people who live in them.
Since the days of George and Martha, Boxwood has been a centerpiece of Virginia homes. The American Boxwood Society is headquartered in Virginia and a New York Times article back in 1970 declared the state the land of Boxwood. But today, the word means so much more than tradition. It’s clean, green and fresh — it reflects our home away from home perfectly.
