Alpine Cabin

Alpine Cabin

The Alpine Cabin was a fun project for us because of the variety of custom furniture we got to build for it. The kitchen’s shaker style cabinets and island were fully designed and built by Union Wood Co. Natural Oak warms up the kitchen on floating shelves above the stove, island panels that hide a hidden bar, and a Parson style extension table off the island. To highlight the cabin’s heritage styling, a reclaimed wood barn door tucks always the cabin’s laundry room. In the powder room, a live edge vanity gives the space an organic focal point. To maximize the number of beds, the two guest rooms are outfitted with built-in Natural Oak bunk beds (one with a trundle bed and the other with additional storage).

North Shore Kitchen

North Shore Kitchen

For a couple on the North Shore, we built a modern kitchen with flat panel doors. The space is monochromatic and clean-lined, so we wanted to add some character by installing Whitewashed Oak panels on the front of the island. As always, the kitchen drawers are constructed with dovetail joints and premium domestic birch plywood interiors. Since the dining area is adjacent to the kitchen, the clients wanted a matching built-in sideboard for serving and display.

We’re a full-service custom furniture workshop located in Vancouver, BC. Contact us to get started on your drawings and building your dream project.

Brewery Creek Heritage Loft

Brewery Creek Heritage Loft

It's amazing to see the progression of a project from pencil sketch to lived-in.  Caroline approached us with a handful of drawings, and more importantly, an idea for what she wanted. We collaborated closely with her on her plans to help give a new look to her space by refitting it with lots of custom woodwork.  Originally renovated in the early 90's, the beautiful space needed a facelift while staying true to its industrial roots (as a candy factory!). Check out the beautiful entryway storage unit, custom-paint barn doors, bathroom vanity, 11' kitchen island, and barnwood bedroom feature wall which includes a matching sideboard for storage. That's not all, keep your eyes peeled for other custom-built pieces.

Chinatown Bachelor Pad

Chinatown Bachelor Pad

There's a certain romance around being involved on a customer's dream home.  With this full-scale remodel, the designers at Port & Quarter tasked us with building some great furniture, all the while maximizing the client's space. The custom walnut bed is fitted atop giant solid wood dovetail drawers. The bedside tables built just-so to allow the bed drawers to open without having to tear the room apart. In the rest of the house you'll notice our All-Black Cabinet and our Le Desk in oxidized oak.  [Room Design - Port & Quarter, Image: Working Title, Concept Design: Kyla Ray]

What's not to love about wood mantles? A little bit of natural warmth was what this space needed. While working on a project recently with designer Erin Chow (she's awesome!), we were ecstatic to be asked to build this custom mantle from Whitewashed Oak. Mantles can be built in any kind of shape or size—we won't judge!

When the Dynamic Duo behind Oliver Simon Design put their hearts and minds into something, the result is perfection. They take an unique approach to each space while relying on their philosophy, "...the belief that every space should be an extension of the owners personality and style." When we teamed up with Jamie and Greer we knew it was going to be great. For this project we crafted solid walnut shelves, floating shelves and a custom ultra-black version of our Sawyer Table.  Doesn't it look so great with those chairs?

Southlands Home

Southlands Home

When we had to opportunity to work with Kenny and Michelle on their modern farmhouse home in Vancouver's Southlands neighbourhood, we jumped at it!  With design touches from Jillian Harris, this house was already starting to take on a beautiful shape. We put our spin on their floating media unit and shelving, kitchen shelving and floating master bath vanity. We hand-built each item using whitewashed oak, darkened steel and white lacquer.

MATERIALITY 101: RECLAIMED WOOD

Our shop started out by making furniture with reclaimed wood, architectural salvage and other materials destined for the landfill. Sourcing the finest lumber based on both aesthetics and strength is one of the best parts about creating custom furniture.

The hunt for the best wood is always a top priority, so we also work closely with suppliers who provide domestically sourced wood from sustainably harvested forests. This is furniture-grade lumber which is specifically kiln-dried to eliminate shrinking and warping. Far from being run-of-the mill, this wood is one-of-a kind. Working through piles of timber, our partners handpick boards with a high level of character and specifically set aside any unique grain patterns for Union Wood Co.

When employed in the right design, the well-chosen material becomes even more meaningful. This is part of a shift to valuing objects that are high quality, local and sustainable. The wood - and other natural materials - helps us connect to physical things on a deeper level, and we recognize that less is more.
