The distinct beauty of reclaimed wood, finished with rich water based, non-toxic stains, is preserved in our handmade furniture that is made in Los Angeles, California. In addition to our furniture collections we have custom design capacity to make specific pieces to fit right in any habitat.
Our exclusive use of vintage reclaimed wood has many advantages. The grain of the timber with its tight growth rings shows the superior density of the wood from ancient trees, and the natural, aged patina and color of the old-growth timber is preserved in the manufacturing process. The results provide a look and feel that can not be replicated in new wood.
Much of the reclaimed wood was originally harvested and milled 50 to 100 years ago, and has been seasoned in sunny Southern California for decades The wood unparalleled stability and resistance to future distortion or structural movement.
At Urban Woods we strive to make beautiful, eco-friendly furniture in the most sustainable way. We do not use imported tropical hardwoods which harm the rain forest to harvest, MDF, nor toxic glues. The use of locally sourced, reclaimed wood allows our production facility to minimize damage to the worlds forests, recycle waste wood, and provide local jobs in our community.
