Our commitment to the environment: Domestic hardwoods have been endorsed by the USDA as a preferred green building material, due to responsible harvesting methods practiced by the American hardwood industry, as well as minimal transportation requirements (compared to imported woods). Our furniture is made to last for generations from sustainably harvested, local wood. In every stage of our business, we strive to minimize our impact upon the environment.
