Yorkwood Furniture Co.

INSPIRATION

Yorkwood Co. was founded by Adam Finkelman in 2012. Adam received his Masters and Bachelors in Building Construction from the University of Florida in 2010. Through his studies Adam also obtained a Concentration in Sustainability and became a LEED Accredited Professional. After moving to New York he has used the city as his inspiration for his work. The Yorkwood Line was furniture made by bringing local New York City businesses together to produce something sustainable and beautiful. Adam would now like to bring these same concepts and ideas together in the implementation of sustainable creative spaces. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

SPACES

Adam recently worked with local business Hecho Inc. in a Project Management role and helped them construct Bella Gioia a Park Slope restaurant made with many salvaged materials. Always seeking out new inspiration and new work Yorkwood is always on the look out for the next project. 
Yorkwood Co. has done interior design and construction for multiple residences, furnished office spaces, and managed the construction of retail spaces all within NYC.

FURNITURE LINE

Yorkwood Co. has done interior design and construction for multiple residences, furnished office spaces, 
and managed theconstruction of retail spaces all within NYC.
Yorkwood was previously used for shipping everything from coffee beans to cocoa beans, gardening tools to kitchenware, cases of beer to boxes of books, and more all over New York City. As demand grows for the furniture so too will the sustainable impacts of the line, along with local jobs (since all of the materials we are working with are harvested and assembled locally).

CUSTOM FURNITURE.

Yorkwood Co. is not only developing a furniture line that tells the story of the city it is created in, but we are also developing a one of a kind upcycling program that fuels the whole line. As a result, Yorkwood Co. has developed the first ever community supported reclaimed wood furniture line. Unlike other furniture that may have a positive influence on the space in which it resides, Yorkwood furniture also has a positive impact on the community it was created from.

NEW YORK Style. 

The Yorkwood Furniture Line features a variety of handmade stools, benches, and tables, designed to compliment areas where space is limited. 
Since our Yorkwood is “born” on the streets of New York each piece has style, attitude, and character. These attributes are usually reflected through knots, cracks, and nail holes which we highlight through natural wood finishes and a simple steel frame. Because Yorkwood is created from an assortment of reclaimed wood from all over New York City our furniture is known to feature an assortment of wood types such as pine, walnut, poplar, mahogany, among others. Each piece is unique and has its own story to tell.
 
Our Ideology
Yorkwood Co. is redefining eco-design, by designing with both the end user and communities in mind. Through our approach we make communities more sustainable, and develop beautiful and lasting pieces of handmade furniture that have the voice and attitude of our city.
The Yorkwood line provides a means for communities to come together to better themselves. We provide an opportunity for the collective heart and spirit of the city to be reflected through our furniture making it truly unique and truly New York.

Our Inspiration IS Our City.
Yorkwood Co. is making its initiative to develop a furniture line that represents New York City in the most sustainable way possible. With this in mind our team of local craftsmen and designers have been going to local New York businesses like Brooklyn Brewery, The Strand Bookstore, Brooklyn Industries, Mast Brothers Chocolate, etc. and reclaiming wood directly from them. Not only are we preventing this material from being wasted, we are upcycling it into stylish handmade furniture that is a representation of an effort made by NYC as a community towards sustainability. Since all of our wood is reclaimed from the New York City community it is called Yorkwood.
