Green line

In an effort to bring a truly green product to the market place we have teamed with a local log scout and salvager, Jeff from TreeCycle Northwest.

The yield of lumber from these urban trees is unique, wonderful, inspiring and absolutely one-of-a-kind. Who knows the log or fallen tree that you see in your neighborhood could be a celebrated piece in you’re home one day. It does not get anymore local than that.

Below are some projects that we have already completed and a list of local lumber that is ready to be put to good use. We have various quantities of local lumber for projects big and small contact us for more questions.

Akemi Kaede Project

(bright beauty-maple)

This avant-garde bedroom set is not only uniquely designed but also built locally using sustainable and durable lumber. The set includes a headboard and bed frame complete with full extension pull out drawers underneath for storage. Also included are two matching nightstands and a full sized dresser.

The wood used in this furniture design consists of two western big leaf maple timbers. Both pieces were salvaged here in the Pacific Northwest. Specifically, they came from a wood burning pile in Corbett, Oregon, and from a lot clearing in Camas, Washington. These timbers like so many others were destined to the fire or the wood chipper, but we were able to take them and create something beautiful.

The veneers are quartered eastern Maple and have been revamped and uniquely suited for this one of a kind project. Every piece of wood provided by Treecycle Northwest was hand selected and machined for this Japanese theme collection. This project, which from the ground up has been over a half a century in the making, cannot be duplicated do to the one-of-a-kind characteristics belonging to those trees.

Owning this furniture puts you in the cycle of preventing the useless waste of one of our most beloved resources and celebrates the life and rebirth of these Pacific Northwest trees.
