Turning House Furniture debuts furnishings from reclaimed wood at High Point market

Turning House Furniture, based in Virginia, will debut its line of furniture made from old-growth lumber reclaimed from abandoned factories and structures at the High Point Market this weekend.
The furniture company will feature some pieces at the furniture market from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday.
Sister company Turning House Millworks, based in Landis, provides the wood by deconstructing old, abandoned buildings destined for landfills.
Each structure is “unbuilt” in reverse order in a painstaking process that can take up to five years, recycling 98 percent of the structure, the company said in a press release.
One building, for example, can save 19,000 trees, the company says. Old-growth hardwoods harvested from old factories, mills and tobacco warehouses are given new life as furniture, flooring, cabinets and other building products.
Pieces for every room in the home are presented in three “artistically inspired portfolios” rather than in conventional collections, the company says. The portfolios are groupings of unique pieces with a common creative aesthetic. The portfolios are Summer House, Fresh Heritage and Belgian Modern.
“They are not matched suits confined by a singular wood, finish, hardware or design detail,” says Dixon Bartlett, chief creative officer for HB2 Resources, which conceived and created the collection. “Rather the Turning House portfolios are unified under a common sensibility or mood.”
The Turning House Furniture preview exhibit will be in the International Home Furnishings Center, Interhall 101.
On Tuesday, Amy Miller, an environmental deconstructionist and wood expert with Turning House Millworks, will present, “Reclaiming Wood for Furniture: The Ultimate Recycling Story,” at 1 p.m. at the Retailer Resource Center in the Plaza Suites on the first floor.
The event, slated as an Appalachian Celebration, will also feature bluegrass music and Appalachian high country cuisine in the showroom in the furnishings center.
