The term “environmentally friendly” has been used more in the past decade than perhaps ever before in history. As the issues related to the depletion of our natural resources, global warming, and pollution come to the forefront in the new millennium there are those in every industry that find a way to do their part to preserve this planet. Woodland Creek Furniture chooses to make eco furniture, our small contribution to the solution for problems that have in many areas reached epic proportions.
Eco furniture is environmentally friendly furniture that is made from reclaimed wood. Reclaimed wood is wood that is gathered, not cut down. Most often it is taken from the piles made by the demolition of barns and farm houses, preserving the natural resources of our woodlands and forests. With it, we create all natural wood furniture that is taken to the next level, giving you the beauty that you’re looking for in your home without the negative consequences to the environment.
Each piece of reclaimed wood that we collect and bring back to our furniture gallery has a unique look and feel to it that can be used to create something significantly different from any other piece of furniture you may have purchased before. Combining different types of wood and then preserving them with a finish to enhance their natural beauty turns these already rare pieces into timeless classics. Our craftsmen are the very best wood working artists in the business and we do custom orders if you’d like to share some ideas of your own.
Eco furniture is also sometimes called organic furniture. Since it’s created from all natural wood, when the time comes for it to be discarded it can easily be reabsorbed into the eco system it was taken from. Unlike plastics and synthetic materials, wood is biodegradable. It will last for many generations inside or even outside of your home, and there is nothing to worry about when it finally does see the end of its usefulness to you. If you throw it away its safe for the environment and perhaps someone at that point will reclaim it like we did and create something new.
