When we decided to take the leap and open a retail shop on historic Route 66 our search for decor items to fill the new storefront began. We knew we wanted to find unique items that were local and handmade to perfectly compliment what we do with Reclaimed Wood. There is so much artistic talent right here in Tulsa and our vision is for our store to reflect that. I wanted to dedicate a blog post to the amazing local makers that we feature in our shop in the hopes that you can get to know them and appreciate their hard work and amazing creative products like we all do here at Timber & Beam!
Drew and Mel were the very first local brave souls to meet with us about stocking product in our Showroom. They are a husband and wife creative duo who were kind enough to listen to our ideas and then make it happen! We now stock custom colors you can only find at Timber & Beam of their modern concrete planters, skulls, lazy susans, and now concrete shelving!
House Sparrow Nesting
Natasha is so sweet and is the Queen of macrame! I personally have a few of her pieces in my home and I love the natural and unique vibe it lends to my space, which was just what we needed in the Showroom! Bonus: The Makerage's planters are the PERFECT fit in Natasha's hanging macrame!
Foxy Pots Pottery
Kris created her first ever full hand thrown dish set just for us! We debuted the set at the Tulsa Home & Garden Show where several customers admired her beautifully crafted pottery. Each piece is a little bit unique and compliments the look of our reclaimed farm tables perfectly.
Ashley Lauren Design Studio
Ashley is a local artist + designer + blogger and has a seriously cool and unique style. We have collaborated with her on several art pieces that are displayed in our Showroom, like the reclaimed wood "Gather" sign pictured above!
Gilbert Artisan Wood Works
Joe is a local artisan and carpenter who crafts unique furniture and works of art. We collaborated on a dining table set and console table using Reclaimed Live Edge White Oak material and Joe then gave it a modern vibe with a steel frame fit into the original mortise holes of the wood.
Greg is a local concrete artist specializing in custom furniture and art pieces. We had a vision of mixing our reclaimed materials with his modern concrete and we couldn't be happier with the end results!
