Our Ethos

In today’s climate there are many reasons to buy recycled or reclaimed timber furniture. Australian hardwoods are some of the most stunning in the world.
Pieces made using these recycled timbers allow you to bring a natural element into your space, compliment a wide range of interior styles, are durable, and designed to last a lifetime.

All of our timber is salvaged locally from commercial and residential sites around Melbourne. Some of these timbers date back to the early 1900s. 
Using reclaimed timber saves landfill, new logging and the use of cheap, chemical laden materials.

It sits in direct contrast to the fast furniture industry as eco friendly furniture is built to last, reduces the need of cheap replacements and the creation of more waste in the future. The environmental benefits of working with recycled timber are as important to us as creating  beautiful pieces of furniture. 

When designing made to order furniture, dimensions and configurations are adjustable to suit the requirements of the space and how the pieces will be used. This allows you to own your perfect furniture piece, design for longevity and break away from the fast furniture trend.

The YARD Process

The journey begins with a conversation with our team. Here, we build an understanding of your needs and which of our designs and sizes work best. 

Tables can be made in the size that best suits your space. Our beds can be made with a variety of reclaimed timbers. Coffee tables tables can be made in different sizes and timbers. Our entertainment units and sideboards can be made in a range of lengths, with their storage customisable to work for you.
Thoughts are gathered, put to paper and with customer confirmation the order kicks off.

From here, the magic begins! In the workshop, your ideas and drawings are handcrafted into beautiful pieces of furniture using recycled Victorian hardwoods.
