Nothing great in the world has ever been accomplished without passion. – HEGEL

OUR PHILOSOPHY

WOODSWAN supports eco-friendly sustainable living by creating modern, minimalistic, organic furnishings and architectural elements derived from rescued fallen trees, tree stumps, and reclaimed wood. Whether downed by fire, flood, lightening or just the natural course of age, each finished piece has a story.

Designed, built and sourced in New Mexico, each piece is handmade with great attention and care. All our rescued wood has been kiln-dried, each cut is level and everything applied to the wood releases zero to low VOC, thus stable in any interior. Our lean method of production insures surface treatments, realized through multiple stages, are smooth but tactile. Each bespoke piece is handcrafted to our standard of quality. Special attention is given to naturally occurring flaws or cracks making each and every creation genuinely unique.

At WOODSWAN we believe everything from the natural world should be celebrated. Every tree naturally displays beauty and character born from adversity thus we celebrate all their cracks and wrinkles. We humbly offer this metaphor to embrace and honor these old sentrys.

from tree stump to beautiful modern furniture

“It doesn’t matter if you’re born in a duck yard, so long as you are hatched from a swan’s egg!”
– Hans Christian Andersen

We rescue and carefully recover dead and downed tree sections all over New Mexico. We often receive calls from people who have seen trees being chipped, ground up, or piled for burning, a common solution to the debris after a fire event or flood in the southwest. We attempt to "rescue" these trees before this occurs.

1 RESCUE

2 HAUL

All recovered tree sections are carefully transported to our staging area in Glencoe, New Mexico. We recover most of the trees locally and from other areas of New Mexico.

3 KILN

The natural air-drying of any species of wood can be a long process, so oftentimes wood is kiln-dried to speed the process along. Kiln-drying is a process of placing any wood into a kiln where heated air is circulated. The temperature and RH of the kiln is controlled for the purpose of reaching the wood’s Equilibrium Moisture Content (EMC). Kiln-drying minimizes cracking and assists in the mitigation of fungus, mold and insects.

4 BESPOKE
DESIGN

At this stage these raw shapes are beginning to be transformed. Most manufactured goods have a standard customization at their factory with certain measurements and details. Bespoke is made from scratch to your specifications. In our case bespoke is also unique due to the organic material used. Each piece is inherently unique, no two are identical.

Even tree sections within the same species vary in fibre density, texture and grain pattern. Our team recognizes these unique features and works to highlight. We celebrate all fissures, occlusions, spalting and cracks. We simply celebrate nature in all its forms.
