The Chicago-based Reclaimed Table is small business armed with a passion for high-quality, green design. All of the materials used to create their tables, paneling, and slabs are eco-friendly, from the reclaimed and FSC certified wood, to the low-VOC finishes and formaldehyde-free Baltic birch plywood. Even some of the production equipment they use has been resurrected from a past life, including a wood planer from the Smithsonian.

With hickory tables made from the subfloor of a former school gymnasium, paneling from a Kentucky farm that trained prize racehorses, and beech tables made from the barn where barbed wire was patented, their pieces have the ability to tell a truly unique story while promoting the ideals of sustainability. Learn more about them and their work on their website, and on their blog.
