Furniture from reclaimed wood

TerraSur uses reclaimed railroad ties (called sleepers) from Argentina to craft its furniture. The Durmiente Console (detail at left and below) is offered in two lengths, 80 inches and 68 inches. It is 10 inches deep and 32 inches high.
TerraSur’s factory in Argentina is Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) chain-of-custody certified by the SmartWood program of the Rainforest Alliance (COC # 001206). TerraSur is also a member of the Sustainable Furnishings Council.
The Atame hand-woven leather bed (below) blends two design trends-- Rustic and Old World -- and can fit comfortably in either one. The solid wood frame is sleek and sophisticated, but the heart of the bed is the headboard. Leather straps are hand woven into a tapestry of symmetrical lines to create a headboard that is as contemporary as it is Rustic and Old World.
