Urban Timber | The Most Sustainable Option for Sourcing Wood?

We’ve had a good bit of inquiries asking where we source our wood material.  Sustainability is of the utmost importance to SOU, and our first go to option for reclaimed material nowadays is urban timber.  This product is typically trees that have come down for one reason or another w/in 50 miles radius of a Atlanta (or most any city center).

You’ll find some examples of this product below, and how we use it throughout the furniture design and fabrication process.  It allows us to experiment with the grain and orientation in so many different ways.  The best part is that since we’re rescuing this product from a landfill, its probably the most sustainable option out there for our designs.
