Our Inspiration IS Our City.
Through a utilitarian approach to design, Yorkwood Co. has managed to establish a furniture line featuring wood strictly salvaged from the New York City community. Why seek out reclaimed wood from distant locations when the local businesses in New York City have excess pallet wood which is often hauled to dumps and wasted?
In order to sustain this furniture line Yorkwood Co. reaches out to businesses in the community, collects their excess pallet wood, and re-purposes it into Yorkwood. We are making furniture that not only improves the community it’s made in, but is also a direct reflection of the spirit of the community helping us to salvage their material. Unlike other furniture that may have a positive influence on the space in which it resides, Yorkwood furniture also has a positive impact on the community it was created from.
Socially Conscious Design.
Yorkwood Co. is not just a furniture design build firm, Yorkwood Co. is a design build firm with a focus on providing sustainable products to its customers and bettering the communities that help support its process.
