The Benefits Of Reclaimed Wood Furniture
Toxin Free + Low to Zero VOC

Making a difference in the environment

Reclaimed wood has many advantages. The grain of the timber has tight growth rings that show the superior density of the wood. The natural patina and color of the old-growth timber are preserved in the manufacturing process. A look and feel that cannot be replicated in new wood. 

Scientists estimate that we are losing more than 137 species of plants and animals every single day because of rainforest deforestation. Logging tropical hardwoods like teak, mahogany, rosewood, and other timber for furniture and other wood products is clearly unsustainable for any length of time.
