Our Story

Focusing on the details is what makes our furniture exectional.

Humboldt Hardwoods was born in early 2014 as a way to promote sustainable wood furniture.  We are a small company specializing in turning locally harvested trees into furniture that will last generations. All our furniture is made from North American woods like Ash, Maple, Oak, or Walnut. These trees are salvage around Chicago using sustainable forestry practices.


Our furniture is handmade, in the truest sense of the word. We control the entire build process, from full tree to functional art, maintaining the highest quality standards along the way. When you browse our furniture and home decor collections you’ll notice that the wood is not perfect. They’re dotted with knots, twists, natural fractures and curved edges. But like so many other things in life, those imperfections lead to a piece so unique its provenance makes a great story you can tell. Bring our work into your home and you’ll immediately notice that it attracts attention.
