Our Story

One-of-a-Kind Chairs

We take beautiful wooden chairs and re-purpose them into works of art that inspire, encourage and celebrate something or someone perfectly.   Each chair is uniquely designed and completed according to your request.  Take a look at our gallery and tell us how we can make your own chair uniquely yours!

Our Background

Meet Andy!!!! 

Andy was born with Down Syndrome and other health issues that kept him in and out of hospitals for many years.  However, his parents strongly believe that Jesus still heals today, so they chose to raise Andy without limits, believing that his life has purpose and trusting that he would fulfill everything God had for his life.

 

Raised with three other siblings in a family that treats him like an equal in all ways, Andy's unique characteristics and talents have flourished.    He has been continually challenged to discover and fulfill the God-given desires of his heart.  His charisma, unfailing joy and unbiased friendliness makes him a favorite wherever he goes.  By the time he graduated from High School in 2016, Andy had made friends with the entire school - students, faculty and service staff alike.


When anyone asked Andy what he was going to do after High School, he would immediately respond "Own my own business!"   He underlined that desire by always wearing a dress shirt and tie, even to school, because he KNEW one day God would give him his own business.

  

Andy has been surrounded with creativity his whole life - his father does home construction and wood-working and his mother is an artist   On a quiet day soon after high school graduation, his mom handed him a paintbrush and a pint-sized rocking chair -  and the seed was planted.   


With training and guidance from his parents and the encouragement of many friends and community members, Andy is learning refinishing skills as well as  developing a passion for each chair,  naming them as he is inspired, and praying that the message behind each chair encourages and inspires each owner.  


Browse through our gallery and see some of the chairs highlighted:


"No Limits" Chair - Andy believes everyone has God-given talents and purpose, and words should not limit us, but free us to discover them.


"Dream" Chair - Andy knows the power of big dreams in the hands of a big God.  


"Joy" Chair - Andy has practiced joy in hard places - he truly believes that ”the joy of the Lord is your strength!”


Andy sells his work, but part of his dream is to donate many chairs to bring joy, comfort, and inspiration into places where hope is needed - like Cook Children's hospital where he began his journey, and where he recently returned with a JOY chair donated so others can be inspired by his message.


Andy is already changing his world ......one chair at a time!!!
