Details

The solid elm used to craft this bookshelf was salvaged from the doors of 150-year-old traditional Chinese siheyuan homes and traditional Chinese farmhouses. Each piece is unique because of the nature of the reclaimed wood. Caster style wheels provide easy mobility, and metal accents add to the rich character of the shelf. Made by Chinese woodworkers in inland China.

More information about our new Reclaimed Elm Collection:

  • Comes from repurposed solid Chinese elm wood that is reclaimed from abandoned Chinese buildings - often traditional Chinese homes and farm houses where elm was chosen to provide a sturdy, long-lasting home for many generations of a family.
  • Water-based stains or a natural clear coating is used to feature the beautiful grain and color of each piece and to preserve the history of the wood.
  • Chinese elm is know for being a resistant wood and has a unique zigzag pattern that is characteristic of it's wood grain.
  • Because it's reclaimed from old Chinese buildings, it has a deeper and denser grain that is more stable and less likely to warp in different climates.
  • And because each piece is reclaimed, the furniture pieces have mortise-and-tenon joint cutouts from a prior life. But we believe this only adds to the charm and character of the piece - each is truly unique.
  • At VivaTerra, we see these furniture pieces as passing on a legacy, story & decades of deeply rooted history.

Eco Info According to an EPA annual report released in 2012, wood accounted for 8% of our landfill content even after recyclable woods had been recovered from the fills. This waste is among some of the most preventable if initiative is taken to dispose of wood properly and efforts are made to salvage it. Salvaged or reclaimed wood protects our environment, because when it is recovered from its original use and repurposed it not only saves trees, but also uses only a fraction of the energy and natural resources during production as its first growth counterpart.
Please Note As our reclaimed wood products are in their second lives, you can expect to see blemishes, holes or other scars in the wood. But every scar has a story, and we believe these imperfections give reclaimed lumber its rich character and singular beauty.
Product Care Because our wood pieces are finished with natural products, color variations may occur. Additionally, a naturally finished wood will age differently than treated lumber. Due to dryness, small cracks and other imperfections can occur. To care for wood and maintain its natural luster, it’s recommended you treat with mineral oil or apply a natural wax, such as bees wax polish or carnauba wax.

  1. very beautiful primitive piece review by frequentflyer on 11/25/2016
    Your Product Rating

    really sturdy, thick shelves. They are pieced patchwork style on the underneath of the shelves but the effect is of a solid thick piece of wood. The distressing is not the fake random hit it with nail heads but the pitted cracks along the grain from really aged wood.

    The wheels may scratch the floor. They sort of turn but are metal as primitive as the wood.

  2. What a deal! review by Kim on 10/16/2016
    Your Product Rating

    I love my bookcase. The wood is distressed and beautiful. I also really like the metal accents. The wheels make it a little easier to move, but don't expect it to be easily moved around. Not sure what it was...maybe the casters didn't turn; it also seemed to be possibly scratching my floor, so I don't recommend rolling it across hardwood floors. But you'll love the bookcase if you like original pieces, and distressed wood!

    It did take a long time to get some stickers off the piece....wish companies always used easily-removed stickers.
