Hudson Furniture Inc - Part 1

I started getting free issues of Metropolitan Home magazine home today, and found an ad for this furniture company. Hudson Furniture Inc, is a NYC based company specializing in furniture made from salved & wind/storm damaged trees (none of the trees are harvested from old growth forests). This basically means that their furniture is made from trees that need to be removed in order to save surrounding trees, homes, etc.

Hudson Furniture works with the tree's natural forms and grains by utilizing traditional joinery techniques and hand rubbed oil finishes.

Here are a few of my favorites.
















Hudson is also "New York's only repository for legally harvested petrified wood". I'm obsessed with these end tables/stools.
