Some of our most interesting and fun projects involve lumber to which the owner has a personal connection. Maybe it was on their property for years and fell in a windstorm, but the owners don't want to let the tree go completely.

The owner of the Wing House had collected urban salvage from garden tours. She called on us to transform it into unique furniture for her iconic home. The results were beautiful, rustic pieces made of carob, red alder, redwood and oak, many with the salvaged logs largely left in tact.

The family of a client in Malibu had lovingly planted olive trees in their yard in 1942. The trees were unfortunately killed by fire years later and the younger generation had been saving the wood for 15 years. We were able to use the wood to create a wonderful kitchen countertop that carried a lot of family sentiment and an earthy South of France vibe they loved.

It takes a specific license to fell a tree, equipment to properly mill it, and time and space to dry it. We work with the most experienced professionals in Los Angeles to salvage your urban lumber. As your tree concierge, we handle the process from start to finish, including your one-of-a-kind piece of furniture. If you want to manage it yourself, call us when the wood is dry and ready for us to build.
