Brandi Dunkel & Andy Gooding
What happens when a carpenter and a designer get married and start their own company? Pure home decor genius. In their Chicago studio, Andrew Gooding and Brandi Dunkel craft unique designs like their triple bottle centerpiece, which blends reclaimed wood and sleek glass vials. Most of their items showcase this juxtaposition: Andrew’s rustic woodworking, and Brandi’s eye for elegant design. The couple met when Andrew came home after a year of working on wind turbines in North Dakota. It was almost immediately clear that they made a good team with Brandi's interior design degree and Andrew's experience with construction and welding. They decided they should merge their talents and start their own business. Now, they sell everything from interior decor to furniture, and are thrilled to open a storefront in Chicago within the next few years.
