Function Meets Form.
We dig making beautiful things for you to eat on, sit on, sleep on, and to keep for life. We create furniture to admire, respect and value.
The custom furniture process begins with a need. At Union Wood Co, each piece is crafted to your specific order allowing us to personalize it for you or your space. Whether it’s a small residential project, retail store, office fit-out or custom built-in furniture, our team of skilled craftspeople can accommodate. Keeping the process quick and stress free, we work through all the details of design, materials and delivery to get you what you really want.
As builders and lovers of the craft, we live for creating these personalized pieces. It allows us to apply our skills and aesthetic in various forms. We appreciate both simple and complicated projects, with the belief that collaborations are the foundation of growth. So send us your Pinterest board, napkin sketch or AutoCAD drawing, and let’s get to work!
Tell us what you need. We can also walk through the custom process by phone. To really get inspired, drop into our Vancouver studio & workshop or poke through our Instagram feed.

MATERIALITY 101: RECLAIMED WOOD
Our shop started out by making furniture with reclaimed wood, architectural salvage and other materials destined for the landfill. Sourcing the finest lumber based on both aesthetics and strength is one of the best parts about creating custom furniture.
The hunt for the best wood is always a top priority, so we also work closely with suppliers who provide domestically sourced wood from sustainably harvested forests. This is furniture-grade lumber which is specifically kiln-dried to eliminate shrinking and warping. Far from being run-of-the mill, this wood is one-of-a kind. Working through piles of timber, our partners handpick boards with a high level of character and specifically set aside any unique grain patterns for Union Wood Co.
When employed in the right design, the well-chosen material becomes even more meaningful. This is part of a shift to valuing objects that are high quality, local and sustainable. The wood - and other natural materials - helps us connect to physical things on a deeper level, and we recognize that less is more.
