North American Virgin Forest

History’s handsome gift creates stylish furniture that will last forever.

Hundreds of years ago, lumberjacks from France and England were dispatched to the forests of North America's Great Lakes. Their mission: to supply logs for shipbuilding and the homes of Europe's nobility.

After cutting the trees, the logs were shipped eastward on log rafts, many of which broke up on the journey losing up to one-third to the water's bottom. Perfectly preserved under the floor of these waters, the centuries old virgin timbers possess unique figure and graining qualities impossible to duplicate with today's common woods.

Current salvage and recovery techniques make it possible to retrieve this virtually extinct wood and create beautiful furniture with finishes not seen for centuries.
