Fallen Tree collection by Fallen Industry

October 3rd, 2013 by retail design blog

Our wood materials are all from fallen trees. Trees that were cut down to make room for industrial growth. Trees that have lived their lives and have fallen naturally. Or trees that were about to fall and cause damage to homes. They trees come from all over the country, and as new and unique projects arise, we must search deeper to find the exact right shapes and species. After all, trees don’t always grow the precise way you want them to.

It’s amazing to think that these truly massive and ancient beings once started as a tiny seed you could fit in your hands. We attempt to give homage to the trees by preserving their natural beauty and organic symmetry that only Mother Nature can create. We cherish the knots, holes, and burl that lumber companies consider undesirable. And we give new life to one of nature’s enigmas, that does nothing but good for all who breathe its air and inhabit this Earth.​​


​The wood is milled, kiln-dried, planed, cut, joined, butterflied, sanded, finished with a hand-rubbed oil, sanded, oiled, sanded, oiled, sanded, oiled… Then we use several coats of a secret company glaze to protect the wood from any future damage.
