Mark Macek: Enviro-responsible Furniture

Being green isn't just about alternative fuels, or alternative transportation, or how much you can recycle. Breaking the cycle of rampant consumption by purchasing high quality designs that use sustainable materials to make beautiful, lasting objects is another crucial piece. Mark Macek knows something about this, and his furniture speaks for itself...Mark uses sustainably forested maple and hardwood veneers, bamboo plywood, and Paralam composite board made from waste pine scraps to create his studio's custom furniture. He and his team hand-build all sorts of custom pieces, from desks and storage systems to tables and entertainment centers.
