This post is the latest in my on-going series on handmade furniture, designed and created from reclaimed wood. Today’s featured company – California-based, Teak Me Home, which specializes in creating sustainably built, handmade furniture from 100% reclaimed teak.
Teak Me Home, whose furniture evokes comparisons to mid-century Heywood Wakefield designs, works directly with the artisans and craftsmen that build their furniture, which enables the company to offer their unique pieces at wholesale prices.
All of the furniture in the company’s collection is made from solid teak salvaged from old homes and buildings, most of which were over 100 years old.
In addition to creating eco-friendly furniture, Teak Me Home donates 1% of their sale proceeds to Conservation International to help protect forests and reduce global carbon emissions.
