An estimated 25% of municipal waste consists of wood from both construction and demolition. Hardwoods that could be used to make furniture are being disposed of in landfills in the US, while deforestation happens in other parts of the world in order to make furniture to export to the US. This American-made vintage Douglas fir piece not only uses reclaimed wood it's US-origin means fewer resources are used in it's transportation. Only water-based stains and formaldehyde free glues are used in it's manufacture.
