We had a busy 2018, and worked on some incredible projects using locally salvaged, recycled timbers. We’re passionate about sustainability and handcrafted custom furniture and have worked on a mix of commercial and residential projects.
Here are some of our highlights:
We launched our Wally Mini, a smaller cousin of our popular entertainment console, the Walking Wally. It’s ideal for compact spaces and a great way to bring a statement piece into a small space.
In April we custom made a reception desk and staff lunch tables for ANZUK Education, based in Collingwood. The desk is made from locally salvaged, recycled Silvertop Ash and is an impressive eight metres. The feature of recycled timber contrasts with the industrial nature polished concrete and exposed beams and brings warmth to the space.
In May we undertook a special project, a bar table for the Koori Court in Broadmeadows. A Koori Court is a program that provides a culturally responsive court experience for Aboriginal and Torres Straight Islander families involved in child protection cases. The table was constructed from recycled Yellow Stringybark, with a boomerang feature shaped in its centre. We were honoured to be chosen to complete this project, and is one of our most rewarding commercial projects.
In August we introduced Bathroom Vanities into our range. Vanity 1 & 2 pictured are made from recycled Southern Mahogany and feature grade Wormy Chestnut timber with cupboards and soft close draws to bring a minimalist, natural feel to bathrooms. Timber selection, dimensions and configurations of our vanities are entirely customisable to suit different spaces.
And lots of bespoke custom furniture!
We undertook a ton of exciting custom projects in 2018! From DJ tables and custom kitchen cabinetry, to day beds and bookcases, it was rewarding to see our clients visions come to life! And all using locally salvaged, completely recycled timbers including Messmate, Stringybark, Southern Mahogany and Redgum. We think Australian timber is wonderful, and look forward to bringing it into more homes in 2019.
Stay tuned for exciting projects in 2019! We’re in the midst of working on an exciting new hospitality space, and almost ready to unveil the renovation of YARD owner Peter McManus has been undertaking renovations on his 1870’s Castlemaine home, incorporating YARD pieces, and of course, lots of recycled timber!
Happy Summer Break!
