Francisco Andreu was classically trained as a cabinetmaker at a very young age, working for his father in the family wood factory in Spain. By seventeen, the factory in which he grew up was in peril, Fransisco saw this downfall as an opportunity to start all over. At first, the woodworking was done in the workshops of local artisans who lent Fransisco their spaces after regular business hours. Originally, the pieces were completed without the use of electricity and transported to nearby furniture shops via handcarts. The beginning demanded much work and energy but the company was showing growth and promise.
