Born from our partnership with the USDA Forest Service and the city of Baltimore, the Hanneman stool is a beautiful example of sustainability in action. The yellow pine is carefully salvaged from Baltimore row houses by an organization that supports individuals with barriers to employment. Rather than go to a landfill, this reclaimed wood finds new life in your home as sustainable furniture.
The pine and Douglas fir lumber 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.
