Furniture by Bien Hecho

I asked John Randall how his company, Bien Hecho, sources its wood. “We do a lot of dumpster diving,” he answered, and I knew I was talking to the right person. They also work with resellers of reclaimed materials. One of the tables on display, a beautiful slice of natural wool, was salvage tree stump that was salvaged before it became wood chips.

The furniture is treated with water-based finishes and have contributed to LEED-certified projects.
