reclaimed lumber from Greenwich St. NYCA large project on Greenwich St. is drawing to a close, with over 500,000 bf of grade A Longleaf Pine lumber reclaimed from the gutted warehouse which is being developed into one of the highest valued properties in Manhattan. The building, constructed in 1895, was home to the American Steel Wood Co. and a range of smaller companies, including the Novelty Toy Co., with claims to releasing the first ‘Teddy Bear’. In the late 20th c., 443 Greenwich serviced a long list of film companies, small manufacturers and artists that worked and lived out of an edgier Tribeca neighborhood.

Our inventory of slabs are locally sourced and salvaged from American Black Walnut trees that are sustainably harvested. Each live edge piece offers the unique beauty of raw nature. And the design statement can serve a range of applications – table tops, bar counters, benches, conference tables and dining tables.

We curate a rare selection in Black Walnut trees of remarkable old growth scale, form and figure. Representing wood in its raw form, and combined with a strong base, slabs have the potential for a life time of use, and the character to be carried into future generations,

Black walnut, the darkest of domestic trees, is most distinguished by its warm deep color tones – from dark tan to chocolate brown, with undertones at times of purple and green. The grain is straight and often irregular. And this overall look has come to represent something warm, modern and iconic – from George Nakashima’s mid-century works to today.

Our slabs are custom ordered and selected from our Connecticut mill, offering a truly personal experience at the source; with our staff helping you to choose the best slab for its use and environment.

What do diamonds and reclaimed lumber have in common?

When less is more, one finishing choice for salvaged wood is to just brush the surface – retaining saw marks,  weathered texture and natural brown hues – like an old farmer in his sunday best. Here, reclaimed softwoods absorb the natural light and turn the underlying character up.
