Made of New York is a very interesting furniture line conceived by John-Michael Ekeblad with the help of furniture designer Jonathan Locke and timber-sourcing expert Brian Kane. Most of the wood comes from torn down 19th century buildings. The discarded Manhatten lumber is then converted into furniture using as few machines as possible. They make use of water-based stains and sealers and wood plugs where necessary, though the mantra is to go for minimal treatment of wood, so as to keep its worn out beauty and charm intact. Each piece can take five to ten days to finish, and prices vary from $220 to $1100.
