Sustainable Materials

We believe that the best way to protect natural resources and reduce carbon emissions is to use what we have right here in the Chicago area—not to ship wood from around the world, no matter how responsibly harvested. Our sustainable practices include using locally milled wood by Horigan Urban Forest Products salvaged from beautiful Chicago old-growth trees that would otherwise be lost. Our wood is certified by the Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC); our plywoods, glues and finishes are formaldehyde-free and water-based with no VOCs. Our metal is fabricated for us in Chicago.

For Fallen Branch Studio, green is a way of life, not a trend.
