Our furniture is made from a variety of materials, including wood, steel, glass, and upholstery. For every project, we use East Coast hardwoods, reclaimed or salvaged wood, and/or recyclable steel. We are always working with our partners in the industry to push the boundaries on best sourcing practices.
