Building modern furniture from reclaimed urban trees, Meyer Wells brings together the talents and skills of designers, craftsman and business people with a focus on sustainability.

Using the grand reclaimed trees of Seattle's urban areas as the source materials for their line of modern furnishings, Meyer Well's has created a hands-on production process that makes use out of materials that would normally be considered part of the waste stream.

Working in partnership with sister company, City Tree Salvage, master craftsman Seth Meyer and designer John Wells combine their contemporary tastes with ecological ethics to bring forth a line of beds, mirror frames, dining/occasional tables and more. Designing for both local and international markets, each piece delivered is unique, given that they are handcrafted from salvaged materials collected from some of the 4 billion usable board feet that would otherwise be sent to a landfill, burned as firewood or turned into mulch.

Featured above:
1. King sized fir frame with bleached sycamore headboard
2. Alder pedestal table with clear finish and steel base
3. Carver dining table
4. Brower dining table
5. Axis coffee table
