Wabu Puts Old Wood to New Use
The clever acronym WABU ("wood after being used") refers to a cool collection of furniture made of post-consumer material.
It's a simple concept: collect discarded or derelict wood-in the case of this first collection, 100-year-old doors from South Asia-and saw, plane, miter, and generally beautify them into the easy-to-assemble elements of rustic chic furniture.
The unique nature of the doors makes for one-of-a-kind pieces that make a stunning statement-in hospitality as well as residential venues.
The beautiful thing, besides the very beautiful thing that is the final product, is that nary a single tree was felled in the making of this collection.
Wabu's premier line consists of stools, stands, tables, benches, and lamps. All pieces ship in reusable boxes and can be assembled in less than two minutes with no tools.
