You know that old saying, "find something you love and the money will come?" Well, this guy is the exact example of that.
Andrew Coslow is a wood-working, steel-welding, creative craftsman who can literally bring any one of his crazy cool designs to life. His company, By Andrew Coslow, is a labor of love, with a local workshop and a long list of high-profile clientele.
Andrew grew up down the shore, and spent his spare time surfing and fixing surfboards. He became so sought after by other local surfers, that they would leave their boards on his front lawn for him to work on before and after school. At some points in the summer, Andrew was so in demand that he would go home during lunch to work on surfboards. He became intrigued by design and materials, and ultimately received a degree in architecture from NJIT.
(Fun Fact: Andrew has the very first surfboard he ever fixed hanging in his shop)
During his first few years out of school, Andrew realized that he possessed a unique combination of skills in his ability to both plan and fabricate his designs. He began to construct furniture and home accents in his Hoboken apartment (much to the dismay of his roommate!). Now over four years later, Andrew has a impressive shop in Union City overlooking Hoboken and NYC where he works on projects commissioned by some major brands for their store fronts and displays, restaurants, and even fashion week sets. (Check out his Instagram account for his bragging rights!) His work can be seen in some of our local favorite spots too: City of Saints, Cork, Starbucks and the new Fit Foundry.
While he still takes on custom furniture orders, he has put some of his favorite pieces into production, which are available on his website. From large furniture pieces like beds, tables and desks, to skateboards and dog beds, and even coasters, there is something for everyone and in every budget.

Andrew's philosophy is simple- he is guy who builds things. He has cultivated an impressive and talented team, including his adorable shop-dog Winston, around him and so they can quite literally design, create and construct anything. Andrew's work is unique, modern, and impressive.
