Since 2017, custom furniture maker D’Andre Woodard has been helping his clients bring their visions to life through his brand, D’Andre Furniture.
In today’s fast-moving world, when people can get almost anything shipped to their door in a matter of days, it can be difficult to get people to commit to custom. But, as a one-man shop, D’Andre Furniture is uniquely positioned to turn a client’s abstract ideas into tangible dreams, offering a level of individualisation that larger shops and stores are unable to.
His passion for creating furniture runs in his genes. He recalls that his grandfather was the reliable handyman for his town – a trait that was passed on to D’Andre’s father, who imparted on D’Andre the importance of custom building.
