Finding interiors which are environmentally friendly isn’t always easy.


However, more and more companies are recognising that customers want pieces which are both stylish and sustainable and one great way of ensuring your home is made to last is by searching out companies using reclaimed wood.


From fallen trees to industrial off-cuts and even redundant boats, what would once have ended up on a dump pile is being refashioned into beautiful craft interiors.
