Discovered via the always compelling Hoping for Happy Accidents: Michigan-based Tenebras Design. According to the owners, "tenebras is Latin for darkness and refers to the unveiling of the natural beauty of wood. All our pieces are made from wood that is locally harvested in the midwest from primarily salvaged or naturally felled trees. The pieces are presented simply and finished with natural oils, minerals, and waxes."
