Made. Right. Here.

For over 150 years, Woodard products have been handcrafted and assembled right here in the USA. The pride, the labor and number of hands that touch each piece are rarely seen by the outside. From forming, welding, sanding, painting, finishing, sewing, quality control, careful packing and shipping, the men and women of Woodard’s factory floor handcraft each piece of iron and aluminum furniture. And they do it with the attention to detail and the rugged durability that our customers have come to expect. We did it that way then, and we do it that way now.

Timeless. Classic. Iconic.

Our products have been seen everywhere from The White House to The Smithsonian. And we focus on classic American style - from turn of the century to turn of the century.

Mastery

We’re experts in iron, aluminum, woven, and nexteak. And we know a thing or two about fabric as well.

Iron

Keen design and skilled hands are involved in crafting our products to the highest quality and comfort possible. From our intricate aluminum castings or extrusions to the multi-stage finishing, our goal is to deliver luxury outdoor furniture. From design to fabrication to finishing to shipping, it all contributes to the artistry and luxury that is Woodard.

And if you have your own fabric that you want to use, Woodard also accepts COM or “customer’s own material” to provide infinite personal choices.

Original, Timeless Design

All original Woodard designs are based on classic American style. Whether it’s traditional, contemporary or transitional designs, we start with a sketch then we design it in CAD. Once the CAD is approved, we print a 3D scale version and after we painstakingly evaluate the print, we proceed with a full-scale wood model. Only then do we proceed with castings, molds or weaves.

Represented Everywhere

Headquartered in Dallas, Texas, we currently have over 35 trained and highly experienced sales reps both for residential and hospitality sales. Woodard is specified by designers and sold by fine dealers and showrooms nationwide. We have a permanent 14,000 sq. ft. showroom at the America’s Mart in Atlanta, Georgia.

Made Right. Here For Over 150 Years.

For over 150 years, Woodard iron and aluminum products have been handcrafted and assembled right here in the USA. The pride, the labor and the number of hands that touch each piece are rarely ever seen by the outside. From raw steel shipments to forming, welding, sanding, painting, fabrics, finishing, quality control and shipping, the men and women of Woodard’s factory floor handcraft each piece of iron and aluminum furniture. And they do it with the attention to detail and the rugged durability that our customers have come to expect. We did it that way then, and we do it that way now. Woven and Nexteak frames are hand constructed at partner factories using our design and supervision with all the cushions being available in all Woodard fabrics and manufactured in the U.S. And we do it so the piece you purchase tomorrow will be there well into the future.
