URBAN WOODS  ECO РFRIENDLY furniture MADE IN THE USA Urban Woods makes 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 modern handmade furniture that is made in Los Angeles, California. Our exclusive use of vintage reclaimed wood has many advantages; the grain of the timber with its tight growth rings shows the superior density of the wood from ancient trees, and the natural, aged patina and color of the old-growth timber is preserved in the manufacturing process, giving the furniture a look and feel that can not be replicated in new wood. 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. At Urban Woods we strive to make beautiful, eco-friendly furniture in the most sustainable way. We do not use tropical hardwoods which harm the rain forest to harvest, MDF, particle board nor toxic glues.

We are becoming a dealer of Urban Woods sustainable furniture, and are developing this site for our business in North Carolina.

This area is going to be a company news section, where we hope to share industry information regularly about not only our own business, but many different sustainable resources.
