Seth Meyer+ John Wells=Meyer Wells.
Fallen tree's in urban areas of Seattle are salvaged and used as materials. Together, Meyer Wells and their sister company, City Tree Salvage, reclaims hundreds of logs from the Seattle area-transforming them into furniture.
Using locally salvaged hardwoods keeps useful materials out of landfills+fewer trees will be removed from nature.
They recycle any wood waste/sawdust.
The furniture is finished with low-VOC, zero-VOC, or 100% botanical finishes. Items are shipped in blankets, so no plastic packaging is used/wasted.
They take back any products that are no longer used/ needed, at no cost, to be recycled or reused.
