Heirloom quality furniture using materials sustainably harvested on the east coast
It’s not often a furniture maker also produces the lumber that he or she uses, but that’s exactly what we do. From fallen tree to finished heirloom furniture - we are RE-CO BKLYN.
It started with a desire to create heirloom-quality furniture using beautiful, reclaimed material from the east coast. We tried to find a supplier who held the ethics and practices of producing lumber to the same standard of sustainability as the material they were selling, but we never found said supplier. We wanted the material to be minimally traveled and to be sure of no worker exploitation. One path from standing tree to our stock room.
If we wanted sustainable lumber, we were just going to have to make it ourselves. And that’s just what we did. A handful of years, several sawmills and a collection of chainsaws later, we are RE-CO BKLYN.
