Nature has done her part, now it's Urban-Diversions turn. There is a universal affection toward solid wood furniture and using reclaimed wood makes sense for today's ecologically minded consumers, says Bill Milne of Milne Studios and Dale Campbell, President of Urban-Diversions

Marsh Grass Chair

Rather than continuing the depletion of our natural resources, Urban-Diversions has made a conscious decision to utilize reclaimed and sustainable materials in our VinModern Collection as demonstrated in the first of many introductions.

The first chair is a transitional design built from yellow pine barn beams, evident in the robust frame. The cypress forming the hand mortised lattice back and side panels originated from a raised green house, once located in Grand Rapids Michigan.

The second chair is a soft contemporary design constructed of sustainable walnut planks and cypress spindles (from the same green house) reminiscent of viewing natural marsh grass from a window pane.

The cushioning for the chairs are made from soy foam and hypo-allergenic down, affording both luxury and sustainability. Urban-Diversions believes there is an inherent value in reclaimed furniture built in the United States, demonstrating the importance of investing in the United States and a sustained commitment in saving our environment.

Further reinforcing the commitment to good enviromental stewardship, Urban-Diversions also offers the "Ultimate Green Choice" Antique Furnishings, where there is no carbon foot print left behind, just warmth and history. Urban-Diversions only sources rare and unusual antiques or unique pieces that have a great story behind them.

The commitment goes beyond manufacturing efforts, Urban-Diversions is located in a turn of the century Railroad Station, saving a historical land mark that is both charming and efficient. The station is largely powered by solar panels, further demonstrating a commitment to the eco-system.
