Salvage Works, the premier reclaimed wood retailer in Portland, is hosting an evening focusing on keeping the use of reclaimed wood “fresh”. As design trends change, and “rustic” falls out of favor, what do we do with reclaimed wood? At Salvage Works, we have reimagined reclaimed wood many times over in the almost ten years we’ve been in business. Because using reclaimed wood is so much more than appealing to an aesthetic, designing with it must be a commitment to its use while finding new ways to keep the look current and contemporary. Last year during design week, we focused on the story of reclaimed wood. This year, we’ll focus on the story of its use, through the environmental commitment and design inspirations that excite us to bring new uses of reclaimed wood to the market.
