Holizaar Vendor Spotlight: Functionhouse Urban Lumber and Furnishings

Would you could you love some wood?  You will fall in love with these gorgeous creations from Funktionhouse Urban Lumber and Furnishings!    Each piece is one of a kind, made from urban trees cut down in our own neighborhood. Owners Robert & Zoë Bocik salvage these beautiful trees by working with local arborists, home-owners, and municipalities—having trees that otherwise would have been firewood or landfill delivered to their on-site milling yard. Together, they mill and then render this gorgeous wood for use after drying it in their on-site dehumidifying kiln. Because Rob & Zoë are involved ‘hands-on’ with every step of the process from tree selection and milling to completed object, their love for wood and passion for the environment is translated into their beautiful and elegant furnishing designs; showcasing the incredible figure and colors of urban lumber, utilizing simple builds and completing each project with natural finishes; letting the wood “speak for itself”.

Come see these fine items and more at the 6th annual Holizaar event on Saturday Dec. 7, 2013.
