We strive to present functional pieces of interest that are handcrafted from wood that has already survived a lifetime of use. By utilizing building materials that otherwise end up in a landfill, we offer a viable alternative to the demolition of abandoned homes through Deconstruction. Our dedicated skill set, combined with this rare medium, has provided us an opportunity to create sustainable products that have a story behind them. While there are many challenges in working with reclaimed materials, we find it to be very rewarding. We hope that you enjoy our products as much as we do making them!

  • “With a new Torch Lake cottage and a design look identified as rustic contemporary, we were excited to work with Chris and Sam on end tables, and a coffee table, to complete the look. My wife and I were both born in Detroit and being able to support a company that is re-purposing the wood from different structures in Detroit was quite fun. I highly recommend supporting this great company for a unique piece of Detroit furniture art!”

  • The day they delivered my bed was so exciting.  It was the first time I was seeing the finished product. I could not have been happier.  Chris and Sam made me the bed I had been dreaming of.  The quality and workmanship is nothing I could have found in a store. I loved that they used wood from a car factory in Detroit giving my bed history.  I would not hesitate to recommend Chris and Sam, they definitely take pride in their work.

History’s what we’re made of…

Since 2011, we’ve been creating one-of-a-kind products using wood from properly deconstructed homes and buildings in Detroit. The materials were once part of the city’s built environment and have a story all their own. Each piece we offer comes with the address where the wood used was sourced from and some background about the property itself. Please check back with us often, as the housing stock continues to grow and research becomes available.
