Our Story Book Furnishings? are created out of the branches of the iconic California Manzanita tree, along with other local reclaimed wooden pieces. Manzanita is a protected tree in California, therefor all of the pieces used to make our furniture and accessories come from fallen trees. This whimsical product line inspires the imagination and brings a bit of the wild home. The Story Book Furnishings? line was inspired by our historic (and beloved) Hugh Comstock Fairytale Cottages in Carmel-by-the Sea.
Manzanita is a dense and slow growing arid climate tree. It wonderfully gnarled branches and varied color tones come as result of the harsh weather conditions the tree endures. It is a very hard wood and difficult to work with. Sophisticated woodworking techniques are necessary in the production of these pieces.? Deceptively rustic, our Story Book Furnishings? are masterfully crafted without the use of any hardware.
