When So­ma­sun­daram Pad­man­ab­han, 39, and his wife moved into their new home, they de­cided to do it up slowly, by pick­ing ev­ery piece care­fully. “We were look­ing for a cen­tre ta­ble but found one that was a few inches longer.

The store re­fused to cut it down to our mea­sure­ments so we ended up cre­at­ing our own,” says Pad­man­ab­han.

The cre­ativ­ity bug had bit­ten the then com­puter en­gi­neer who started tak­ing an avid in­ter­est in DIY and car­pen­try projects. He was par­tic­u­larly in love with lamp­shades and even­tu­ally quit his job in 2015 to make and sell his prod­ucts un­der the brand Woodooz. The prod­uct range at the store in­cludes cush­ion cov­ers and cur­tains too. “All our prod­ucts are made lo­cally and hand­crafted,” says Pad­man­ab­han.

This June, Woodooz has opened its own show­room in Tho­raipakkam, where the duo plans to show­case new in­no­va­tive de­signs such as book­shelf lamp­shades to keep your read­ing corner lit up, floor and desk lamps and other decor items that will cater to the city’s IT cor­ri­dor.
