The Reclaimed Oak Furniture Story
Reclaimed oak furniture is furniture created from sustainably-sourced wood. Reclaimed oak can come from a range of sources, but is typically wood that was previously used for another purpose (for example, building another structure) and has now been disassembled and used to create a new piece of furniture.
Using reclaimed wood is one of the purest forms of recycling in the construction industry. Each piece of reclaimed oak furniture has its own story and background. Wood sources include homes, buildings, railways and boats amongst others.
Reclaiming wood really took off in the 1980s on the west coast of America when re-using woods began. An increase in environmentally-conscious consumers twinned with decreasing natural resources has seen reclaimed wood furniture go from strength to strength.
