Salvaged Wood Furniture

Furniture like tables, desks, beds, and chairs made from salvaged or reclaimed wood. Salvaged wood can come from old buildings, urban tree removal, submerged logs, and other sources.

Source the wood as locally as possible, so you know the story of the wood and to reduce the energy required to transport it to the building site. As well, look for wood with little or no previous finish on it, especially avoiding paints that may be lead-based.

Reusing wood reduces our impact on forest ecosystems and makes use of a waste product.

There are an estimated 30 million tons of recoverable wood waste generated by demolition and construction activities each year in North America.
