Woodmark, a family owned company, was founded by Arne Christiansen in 1986 as an importer of upholstered furniture. In 1990 this strategic platform was changed from importing to manufacturing.
This enabled Woodmark to offer reductions in price and delivery leadtime as well promote local Australian production.
In 1994 Woodmark collaborated with furniture designer Charles Wilson to develop, prototype ready for market a new chair design called the CW1 Swivel Chair. This started what has now become Woodmark’s established reputation of taking new designs and developing them, ready for market.
Woodmark has built-up an enviable reputation as an innovative and reliable manufacturer in a discerning market and manufactures to the highest quality and design standards.
We pride ourselves on our expertise in resolving complicated detail. Our employees are trained in difficult and unique cabinet and upholstery techniques creating invaluable expertise in these areas. Woodmark Australia has employees who have been with the company since day one. Their loyalty and contribution over the years have only strengthened Woodmark’s current position.
Woodmark prides itself as being recognised for quality and innovation.
Woodmark values beautifully designed furniture and is committed to producing quality pieces for many more years to come, staying abreast of future trends in design and manufacturing techniques.
In 2008 Woodmark established alliances in China to manufacture 90% of Woodmark’s current range of products to supply to the world market through approved distributors.
This opportunity has enabled Woodmark to promote designed products, especially the Australian designed products to the world market.
