Bruns

Born from our partnership with the USDA Forest Service and the city of Baltimore, our Bruns decorative ladder is a beautiful example of sustainability in action. We’ve reclaimed wood that would have otherwise been taken to a landfill to create truly unique pieces of sustainable furniture for your home. The pine for this ladder is salvaged from wall studs of row houses in Baltimore, with some of the wood panels dating back to the 1800s. Powder-coated steel rungs complement the beauty of the reclaimed wood and hold towels or throw blankets.

Reclaimed Materials From Urban Wood Project: Baltimore

The material used in these pieces comes from vacant rowhomes, barns and other sites on the East Coast, which are meticulously deconstructed through a Baltimore program that hires people with barriers to employment. Much of the reclaimed wood is originally from eastern old-growth forests; it was harvested and used for building projects more than a century ago.
