We came across this fabulous Etsy shop thanks to their featured shops section & we soo had to share! We’re loving how although super rustic, the pieces have a sleek mid-century, modern look, great for someone looking to add a touch of trendy to their home but without going overboard! Jeff Libby of Birdloft doesn’t just use any slab of wood, however. Located in Tacoma, Washington, he specifically searches out tired out wood, pieces that have survived the elements for sometimes over hundreds of years. Doing this sometimes means having “weird conversations with secretive old men” around town but finding unique pieces is an “important part of [his] process”.
While you can most likely find similar pieces via other commercial outlets, sometimes purchasing something handcrafted by a small business, knowing the craftsmanship that goes into each creation, can add sentimental value & one of kind appreciativeness.
