Modern Urban Woods was started after discovering that very few venders actually know the background of their reclaimed wood. Sure, we were told the wood was reclaimed and that comes with a certain good feeling, but from where, and who did the wood originate? As consumers we can go to a farmers market and meet the farmer who plants the seed, tends to the crop, and sells it at market so why shouldn't we have this connection to these types of products?
This is the fundamental question that brought about Modern Urban Woods. We dismantle the barns with care, transport it back to our warehouse, process the wood for production, and create long lasting, unique pieces. At the same time, we gather the history of the farm and the barn. There is, in most cases, a rich history inside the grain of the wood. So here we go, writing a new chapter for a product that already holds a great story.
