East London Furniture takes the concept of reclaimed wood to a new level, producing pieces made from 100 percent salvaged materials destined for landfill, found on the streets surrounding its central London workshop.

Founded by Christian Dillon, Ben Green, and Reuben Le Prevost in 2011, East London Furniture operates out of a storefront on Hoxton Street (Time Out recently named it one of London's best furniture stores). To see more, go to East London Furniture.
