Comrade of promotion at the School of Decorative Arts of Pierre Guariche, Alain Richard and André Monpoix, André Simard benefits from the teachings of Jacques Dumont and René Gabriel, with whom he will do an internship after obtaining his diploma in 1949. Working successively for Jacques Hauville and Jacques Dumont, he was approached during exhibitions in his own name at the Salon des Arts Ménagers and at the Paris Fair, by his first publishers: Airborne, Meubles TV, Disderot and Bobois.

The latter will place Simard at the head of its planning department, entrusting it with the installations and organization of its points of sale, a line of furniture, a few special series, as well as the production of its catalog. He will be one of the first to offer his services in graphic design, in particular for the specialized magazine Meubles et Décors. Interested very early in the question of form and materials, Simard quickly made special orders for interior fittings. In 1959, he received the prestigious René Gabriel prize. Free electron of his time, André Simard places his modernity in a family tradition: woodworking. From 1953, a factory belonging to its cousins, Etablissements Simard, produced some of these most beautiful models.
