"Every child should have mud pies, grasshoppers, waterbugs, tadpoles, frogs & turtles, elderberries, wild strawberries, acorns, hickory nuts, trees to climb, animals to pet, hayfields, pine cones, rocks to roll, sand, snakes, huckleberries and hornets – and any child who has been deprived of these has been deprived of the best part of his education." -Luther Burbank 1849 - 1926

Eco-friendly Furniture Delivers the Three Rs - Rustic, Recycled, and Resort Quality

It's a real pleasure to add distinctive furnishings to your home, patio or deck. When these chairs, beds and lounges are a crossover between rustic and luxurious, they simultaneously make a house a home, and makes that home’s space a showpiece. Because of the furniture’s versatility and authenticity, well designed furniture pieces are certain to become the treasured antiques of tomorrow. What's more, in this time of global deforestation and depletion of natural resources, some furniture builders and designers harvest either dead standing trees, use recycled barn wood, or replenish cut plantation wood. Their environmental awareness has translated into customer comfort and consideration for the environment.

One such company is Red Ridge Fine Furniture.

Rustic, Recycled and Resort quality allow the consumer to enjoy the comfort and familiarity of handmade log home type décor, in an upscale style. An added bonus is that a majority of Mike Brill's furniture uses only recycled barn wood or dead standing trees from the forest floor.

His distinctive offerings are a crossover breed between rustic and luxurious, which simultaneously makes a house a home, and makes that home’s interior a showpiece. From dining room tables to massive log beds – every item is handmade with an individual customer’s needs in mind. With an impeccable eye for the details, Brill incorporates leather accents and wooden carvings to add personality and rich texture.

Whether you reside in an apartment in Manhattan or a sprawling resort in the Rockies, smart furniture will welcome you home each day. Durability and timelessness boasts a versatility and authenticity that makes these pieces certain to become the treasured antiques of tomorrow.

In this time of global deforestation and depletion of natural resources, Brill has continued to seek out vendors who harvest either dead standing trees, use recycled barn wood, or replenish cut plantation wood. His environmental awareness has translated into customer awareness, which has, in turn, helped to generate a rapidly expanding presence within the rustic furniture market.
