While there are plenty of new green furniture resources popping up now, The Wooden Duck is still one of our favorites. The store has been outfitting homes with recycled wood furniture since 1995. Initially, The Wooden Duck specialized in teak from Indonesia, but they've since expanded to include pieces made locally in their Berkeley factory as well as furniture imported from other countries.
According to The Wooden Duck website, their mission is to "offer our customers high quality, simply styled furniture at the lowest prices possible while maintaining our commitment to the environment by using recycled materials as we are dedicated to preserving the world's forest through the exclusive use of reclaimed timber. ... Our styles are inspired by classic American styles like Shaker, Craftsman and Modern as well as Asian designs. All pieces are designed with functionality in mind." The Wooden Duck has two locations: 2919 Seventh Street in Berkeley and 1848 Fourth street in San Rafael.
