New from Old does not use new tropical hardwoods, instead we buy temperate zone hardwoods from local sustainable sources, including Oak, Beech, Elm, Ash, Maple, Sweet Chestnut and Walnut, and fruitwood such as Cherry, Apple and Pear that carry the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certification of sustainability and when possible, areĀ  locally sourced, to reduce the carbon footprint. The option of freestanding or semi-freestanding, solid, durable furniture allows it to move when you do, reducing the pressure on natural resources for new units. New from Old regularly uses reclaimed wood, particularly pine, often antique and generally sourced from colder climates, from slower-growing trees, resultingh in close-grained, resinous timber that is immensely durable, displaying all the charm of antiquity, yet made to measure to your specific requirements.
