Cross-laminated timber furniture collection

Furniture design firm Douglas & Company used leftover cross-laminated timber from a construction project to create a small furniture collection.

The Pipe Dreams collection features a daybed, bench, and two stools - all built using spruce CLT.

Cross-laminated timber is a solid, large-scale, prefabricated, engineered wood panel typically made of multiple layers glued to form structural panels with enhanced strength, rigidity, and dimensional stability.

It's typically used in construction - not furniture. Over the past few years, it's been used to construct residential and commercial buildings around the world.
