SOUTH TAMPA — Inside the recently opened Nadeau — Furniture With a Soul store, everything is done by hand.

The solid wood furniture, imported from local artisans in India and Indonesia, is handmade, there is no point-of-sale system and invoices are handwritten.

"We are kind of like an old-school mom-and-pop type shop," said president Brian Pickler. "It's a very hands-on atmosphere."

Customers at Nadeau won't walk in to setup showrooms.

Instead, they can work with staff and choose pieces for the look they want to create.

"The layout has a treasure hunt feel," Pickler said. "The unique, eclectic inventory is ever-changing, so we are always getting new products."

The official opening of Nadeau Tampa on Oct. 13 marked the furniture store's 32nd location.

"We've had a store in Miami for many years and this year, so far, it is number one," Pickler said. "Continuing growth in Central Florida was ideal, so we opened one in Orlando in June, then the one here in Tampa."

Customers can decorate their new homes or switch up their current residences with bookcases, buffets, desks, dining tables, chairs and more.

"Our price point is much more affordable," Pickler said. "Handmade, hand-painted furniture usually starts at $1,000, but our mantra is we don't have anything over $1,000 in our entire inventory."

The store, located at 3120 W Kennedy Blvd. is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mondays through Fridays and 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. Sundays.
