The Girl and The Fig And Ecowood Displays: Will work for food?

The Girl and The Fig and Ecowood Displays:  Will work for food?

You may remember a while back we were very excited to do a little custom project for, hands down, our favorite restaurant in Sonoma (the world?).  When the owner, Sondra Bernstein, called us to see how we might help with a new project, we were ready to lend a hand.  The Kickstarter project, Suite d, was to be "an unlikely place for uniquely fun times and culinary inspiration". 


        

We started with four massive barn doors made with our reclaimed Douglas fir beams (Tracy) 

during Phase One.  They cover up the industrial roll up door from the inside and when the outdoor patio was in use, they would open to provide passage between in the indoor and outdoor spaces.



Then we finished Phase Two with what would be termed the "movable feast bars".  These were designed and constructed to be rustic and versatile.  One side would be a serving buffet.  Turn it around and it can be used as a service bar.  Put them back to back and they are a two sided buffet.  Or you could create an "L" or a "U"....you get the idea!

btw....we bought the cooking class and will be sharing with our friends from Conscious Corners.  Looking forward to cooking up some farm fresh veggies and maybe a local fish or two.

A New Look with Ecowood "Do Over" During Trouble Economic Times

Colette George - Tuesday, October 11, 2011

One of our long standing customers came to us with the desire to create of fresh and uniform look among their chain of stores to redefine their brand.  With the economy being what it was, there was not enough budget to start from scratch.  In addition, a make over, using what you already have, is a very green and eco friendly choice.  From the very beginning, we have built Ecowood Displays to have a long life of useful purpose.  Some of the Ecowood Displays that we would be making over were ten years old and still going strong.


  

The Old Bellevue Store

To create the new look, we worked with their designers to implement the plan to change out some of the parts on the existing Ecowood Displays with galvanized steel.  We also used some of our post-industrial waste from our cash wrap production line to create a new "skin" that was applied to existing cash wraps, for a fresh and current look.   The result was remarkable.  See for yourself!

So take a look around your store(s).  Do you need a makeover?  Give us a call.  We'd love to explore the possibilities with you! 800-452-1679    Ask for the Head Ecowoodie, Don.  He is our idea guy!

Cheers!

Staying Green, the easy way...

Don George - Friday, September 16, 2011

  Going green doesn't always mean choosing great new sustainable products. Sometimes it's as simple as recognizing that what you have already is functional, beautiful and can easily be given new life.  Such is the case with The Girl and The Fig restaurant here in Sonoma. When making the decision to buy new bar stools, I know, not what you were thinking, they have chosen to reuse great old classically styled stools. Even though they have quite a few stories to tell, including a few of my own, they have many years left of good service. We are removing the old finishes without any chemicals and refinishing using a naturally derived finish that can easily be maintained.  The result will be furniture that will get better with age, something I wish for all of us as well...
