So riding the NW Made train we started up, NWL would like to present elpis&wood. A handcrafted furniture shop based out of Everett, WA; elpis&wood specializes in live edge reclaimed wood. When I heard about their shop, I thought ok I can go check these guys out. But after seeing what these two guys, Matt and Blake, produce, I needed to go see how they do it. If you are anything like us and you like the idea of home grown and produced in the Northwest, these guys are it. NW Made.
“Two guys crafting original furniture and trying to do some good in the world.
elpis&wood creates beautifully crafted furniture and décor made purely from salvaged wood. Most of the wood originates from our corner of America — the backroads and mills of the Pacific Northwest.
When you browse our online catalog or visit our wood shop/studio (which we encourage), you’ll notice that the tables aren’t perfect. They’re dotted with knots, twists, and curved edges. But like so many other things in life, those imperfections lead to a perfect story: A story of reclamation and redemption.
Being active in the our own community, we pass on that good fortune and spirit to others. We donate a percentage of our sales to those who we feel align themselves with our story of reclamation, like Cocoon House, who helps at-risk youth. And we created Desk4Desk.com, a program in process whose goal is to provide desks forschoolchildren in Malawi for each desk we sell.
Philanthropy is an important part of elpis&wood, but the furniture is our top focus. And whichever piece you choose, you also get something free — a conversation starter.
Bring our work into your home and you’ll immediately notice that it attracts attention from guests. In a great way. Because each piece is so unique, and its provenance makes a great story you can tell. The history and character of reclaimed wood furniture, and your choice to embrace it, speaks volumes about what you truly appreciate both in your home and in our world.” -elpis&wood
