Megan Griffith represents Urban Woods, a furniture maker I’ve been wanting to list here, but they don’t sell direct to customers. But Megan is happy to be your connection! Urban Woods “…is a leading designer of sustainable furniture from reclaimed wood, eco-friendly materials and environmentally conscious manufacturing processes. The distinct beauty of reclaimed wood, finished with rich water-based, non-toxic stains, is preserved in handmade furniture and made in Los Angeles, California…Much of the reclaimed wood was originally harvested and milled 50 to 100 years ago, and has been seasoned in sunny Southern California for decades, giving the wood unparalleled stability and resistance to future distortion or structural movement. Urban Woods strives to make beautiful, eco-friendly furniture in the most sustainable way. They do not use tropical hardwoods which harm the rain forest to harvest, MDF, nor toxic glues.” They will also make custom pieces to your specifications using your preference of glues and finishes.
