Happy Anniversary Ecowood Displays

Don George - Tuesday, January 06, 2015

In the words of the Beatles, "It was twenty years ago today..." Well, maybe not today, but this year marks the twentieth year since the Ecowood line of store fixtures was pushed out the door. The original line of about 5 pieces was developed to make better use of the waste material that came from timber frame components. Being outdoor junkies, Richard and Erika started showing their products at the original Outdoor Retailer trade show in Reno, Nevada. We've been a fixture, (pardon the pun), at the show for the better part of the last two decades, often exhibiting twice a year.  

Colette and I took over September 1, 2001, just in time to see the economy grind to a halt after 9/11. We hung in there and have been growing ever since. The original line of fixtures has grown quite a bit since then and we have shipped pieces and complete store interiors all around the world. Keep an eye on us this year as we launch new and innovative products that will help your business grow.

And about that store in the photo, that's Stone Canyon Outfitters. Owner Don Morrison stuck with us through the difficult period after 9/11 and helped us to weather that storm. Always grateful to him for that…

Don and Colette, Head Ecowoodies

Spring in the Wine Country

Don George - Tuesday, April 16, 2013

Eco News

It's definitely spring here in the Sonoma Valley. The first new buds have appeared on the vines and we're ramping up for some exciting spring projects, but as always have plenty of other irons in the fire. Last year we rolled out a new line of retail furniture that has a new look and feel for us. We call it Industrial Chic. Combining elements of Reclaimed Wood, Recycled Barn Roofing and Galvanized Pipe, this line gives you that look and feel of the past with the functionality that you need today to display your products in their best light. Our great friends over at the Girl and The Fig use 3 very large versions of the Movable Feast bar in one of their venues. Shown here is a 120" version greeting guests for an event. The Moveable Feast can be used as a bar, buffet and even as a desk for cooking classes! I know, because I attended one.

Longboards??

Yes, longboards. We've been using waste materials from our Cash Wrap projects to make awesome veneers that we press into pro grade Ecowoodie© Longboards. Using top of the line trucks and wheels, some consider our boards too beautiful to ride, but they are designed and built to be ridden. You could hang one on the wall and just admire it's awesomeness, or shred down the nearest hill. Your choice...

 

We have many more new things coming down the pipeline so stay tuned...



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

Colette George - Tuesday, August 28, 2012

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.
