Though this furniture maker is surrounded by millions of acres of standing woodland in Denver, Colorado, they decided to start building furniture using the abundance of dead pine trees in their local area.
Corbin Clay is a skilled furniture craftsman on a simple mission—create modern furniture using natural, local resources that might otherwise be considered waste. In the Denver area there are over four million acres of dead trees—so why cut down living trees when there are so many standing dead?
With Azure furniture, he creates handmade modern furniture with woods made of 100% beetle kill pine. Each made-to-order piece is finished with formaldehyde-free, low-voc coatings and can will be available to ship within two weeks.
- Founded by: Corbin Clay
- Headquarters: Denver, CO
Azure furniture, inc was created to introduce beetle kill pine into the modern furniture market. When making the decision to incorporate this material into our line, we simply asked, “Why cut down living trees when there are so many standing dead?”. The answer to this question was obvious, and so began the development of the products you see on this site. Creativity, cooperation and experience combine to deliver local, hand-made products to enhance your living and commercial spaces.
