ABOUT NORMANDIE WOODWORKS
Normandie Woodworks is located halfway between Seattle and Portland in Rainier, WA. We are dedicated to the creation of exquisite, heirloom quality woodwork, designed, executed, and delivered to our customers with exceptional service. Our projects include custom and customizable furniture, cabinetry, built-ins, and architectural woodwork. We specialize in traditional techniques such as marquetry of wood and straw, and the use of rare and unusual materials including parchment, raw hide, shagreen, palmwood, horn, recycled brass and mother of pearl. We are proud to be the only custom furniture shop in the Northwest to offer some of these often forgotten materials and techniques.
Here at Normandie Woodworks, we offer our services to a wide variety of clients. The style, size, scope and budget of our projects may vary, yet we approach every one with the same meticulous attention to detail. We pride ourselves on providing an unparalleled quality of craftsmanship and superior service to every one of our customers.
WHO WE ARE
Bruno Hervieux is the master woodworker behind Normandie Woodworks. A native of France, Bruno learned his trade in the Compagnons du Devoir, a French guild of craftsmen and artisans dating from the Middle Ages. After completing three years of technical schooling, Bruno spent seven years in an apprenticeship program traveling the country to study with the masters of his trade. Upon finishing his tour with the Compagnon, Bruno moved to New York City, where he spent the next ten years working in different shops for some of the most prestigious designers and architects in the world. He then moved to the Northwest where he spent another ten years working in the Yacht industry, captivated by the design challenges it has to offer. A lifetime of experience has provided Bruno with an incomparable level of expertise. This, coupled with his passion and dedication to his trade, has made him a true master of his craft.
Normandie Woodworks also includes Bruno’s wife and partner Shannon Hervieux. Shannon studied art at the School of Visual Arts in NYC and now works alongside Bruno to create furniture in straw marquetry.
