Urban Hardwoods

I was referred to the Seattle-based company Urban Hardwoods from a friend and really love their furniture. They reclaim urban trees and make rustic, well-designed furniture. Founder, Jim Newsom, began salvaging beached logs with his tugboat from the shores of Elliott Bay in Washington in the late 1990's. What he discovered in the process of acquiring and using urban wood is the incredible beauty of local trees. I really love their coffee tables and dining tables like the below Chestnut Dining Table ($3100) complete with ferrous stains and blackened steel legs.
