As a company with reclamation at our heart, we place much emphasis on the importance of reclaiming, refurbishing and reusing. Along with all the environmental implications which come along with this ethos, we feel it’s also important to give antique and reclaimed items a second life so they can be appreciated by further generations. With this in mind, we have been keen to find out the innovative and fascinating ways in which our wood has been put to use.
