We are wood hunters. We search the whole of Europe for old wood. We end up with abandoned barns in the Austrian mountains, old freight wagons in France and written-off mooring posts in all kinds of European ports. We bring this wood to the Netherlands and process it into usable planks for our furniture makers, individuals and business customers. Furniture from old wood gives your home character. Take a quick look at all our wood species and their story.
Old wood tells you a story....
Whether it comes from freight cars, from an old farm or has served in the harbor for many years: through all circumstances, wood acquires character. And that history, combined with its robust quality, is precisely what makes old wood so interesting.
Why buy old wood?
Antique wood is sustainable and a robust, high-quality product. The boards you buy will be given a second life and will last for years to come. The fact that the wood has had a different function for years shows how strong it is. The aged look is unique, no two boards or beams are alike. With old wood you create beautiful furniture with character.
