Wood without the trees

TablechairsLooking for an alternative to IKEA's lightweight, light-coloured wood furniture? Check out The Goodwood Cellars. Its craftsmen scour demolition sites and salvage yards for reclaimed wood to make into fresh furniture - handily saving new trees from being hewn down in the process. In addition to tables and chairs like the ones pictured, you can get dressers, beds, desks, mirrors, clocks and - for a bit extra - bespoke designs. Most of the wood is pine and hardwoods such as elm, oak, ash and beech. If you live in Devon, you can pop in and see for yourself - the company's based on The Quay in Exeter. [found via Treehugger]
