What a great idea, instead of turning trees into sawdust.  The tree will live on in the form of gorgeous object, I really think it is wonderful that they are willing to come and remove the tree.  Wow. A

Hi Alexandra~ I really appreciate the items made from these old growth trees. The way you put it says it all!

Hi Judy~ The objects that come out of Urban House are rare and beautiful. In my opinion, any of their creations would be  a great investment and conversation piece!

A wonderful way to remember well loved trees.  Even without the memories, the objects look very interesting.

 Life is good!

Thanks John~ Between their location, the concept of the furniture and the influx of new residents in Seattle, I dare sale sales are brisk at Urban House! And rightly so!

Best regards,
