History: Woodard furniture was founded during the late 19th century by Lyman E. Woodward. He and his three brothers create Woodard Brothers, a company that specialised in the manufacture of wood furniture, window and door sashes, blinds and pine-box caskets. Over the years, the manner of Woodard furniture evolved, but it wasn't until the mid-early 20th century when Woodard and Sons was established that the brand became nationally and then internationally recognised.
Russell Woodard was part of the third-generation member of the Woodard furniture brand along with his brothers; Joseph and Lyman II. Russell Woodward was an American designer closely associated with the Mid-Century Modern movement. During the 1930s Russell Woodard and his brothers began to develop the first line of hand-crafted wrought iron furniture and evolved over the years.
