Traditionally, to celebrate the unique character of reclaimed wood, all of Urban Tree’s furniture and designed objects have been custom. These one-of-a-kind pieces have a special place within the studio’s production and design process. Prompted by a strikingly distinctive tree specimen or inspiration from a client, Urban Tree values collaboration in the production of singular pieces. This is where Urban Tree explores new territories.
Following a customized process of milling and kiln-drying, Urban Tree’s design process brings new life to a variety of urban hardwoods. Salvaging wood that might otherwise be reduced to mulch or landfill, this studio is continually exploring fresh applications, finishes, and details to best enhance the inherent beauty of reclaimed trees.
All one-of-a-kind furniture is designed on speculation or upon special order. Pieces show here include:
- Carved Black Walnut Doors. Composed of a variety of small block pieces with organic pattern carved throughout. 7’Hx 5’W. Inspired by seeing another set of Urban Tree’s custom doors, this client allowed Urban Tree free range – resulting in an artistic entryway
- Miter folded sugar maple with wild cherry root base. Approximately 64″Lx 24″Wx25”H. Reclaimed sugar maple from South Point Breeze paired with a found cherry root base
