Truly Organic

In a world where we are obsessed with having the next biggest thing, the newest innovation, constantly throwing away the old to make room for the new, we tend to forget that all we throw away doesn't just go away. It creates waste. So when I found Urban Hardwoods, a company that diverts old and torn down trees from the landfill and instead makes them into new furniture, I was ecstatic. Their mission is to cherish the trees and give them new life as a table top, a head board, a side table, you name it. The company is absolutely sustainable by nature and every product is stunningly gorgeous. Based in Seattle you can find a piece in any shade you can find a tree in.
