LIGNO AND LUX means “WOOD AND LIGHT” – the two “raw” materials from which things are made here. Creating pieces with locally salvaged hardwood trees is a consuming passion. The idea of taking something that was destined for the landfill and up-cycling it to become beautiful pieces of functional furniture is very gratifying. It’s a practice in patience – as the process goes, after milling the logs into slabs or lumber, each piece is “stickered” and stacked to begin the air drying stage for a minimum of two years. They are then kiln dried before being made use in making furniture and accessories. Proudly handcrafted in Canada.
