United By Blue

For their flagship store in Old City, Philadelphia, the good folks from United By Blue wanted material that was authentic, beautiful, and in line with their mission of environmental stewardship. We were happy to tick those boxes with material sourced from 19th century Pennsylvania barns, 1oo year old Baltimore rowhouses, and an 18th century farmhouse in New Jersey. Our mixed species softwood paneling was used to clad the store’s changing cabins,¬†and our rough sawn blanks were used to lend texture and warmth to the store’s ceiling. The coffee shack is framed with 200 year old chestnut beams, and clad with more of our softwood paneling. Our material¬†complements the store’s wares: rugged, genuine, and ready for a hundred years of use.
