Eric Freed is the Owner of E&K Vintage Wood, which specializes in reclaimed
wood preserved from the deconstruction of historic buildings throughout the
United States and abroad.
Over the past few years, a rapidly growing number of designers, architects,
installers and general contractors have begun to recognize the value of
reclaimed wood. The aesthetics are far superior to new growth wood, and it
offers character and a unique history. In addition, using reclaimed wood
helps to preserve the world's forests, and provide a product that has higher
quality and is often more durable.
We carry a wide selection of locally sourced, old-growth Douglas fir, as well
as many hardwood species from barns and other historical structures. We also
carry barn siding and walnut, oak, pine, maple, beech, hickory, redwood and
Our inventory includes many other unique sources. We recently acquired rare
azobe wood from the 1908 African railway, and beautiful redwood from enormous
cabernet Sauvignon wine tanks used in the 1930's.
In addition to reclaimed barn siding, lumber and flooring, we offer hand-hewn
beams and custom milled furniture. We also provide design and architectural
services, installation and finishing to ensure that you get the best material
for your project.
A few of the clients we have recently supplied are: The W Hotel Eco
Residences Hollywood, Casa Del Mar Hotel and Spa, Red Medicine Restaurant,
Starbucks, Urth Café, South Beverly Grill, Juicy Couture New York,
Zero+Cornejo Showroom, and Junk Food Enterprises. In addition to our
commercial clients, we have an extensive residential client base.
