Armored Frog: Old Wood, New Designs

64416_145909192273865_261947860_nWhen does furniture go beyond form and function to become a piece of history? When the material used in its construction is part of history itself.

At the Armored Frog, each one-of-kind piece is steeped in history, crafted exclusively from old growth woods recovered from rivers and historical structures throughout the southeast United States. Wood for an Armored Frog original may come from a deadhead cypress log discovered in a local river, planks pulled from an old sawmill or beams salvaged from a turn-of-the-century home; and this makes their furniture the perfect fit for the Village Park Eco Home!

We’re so excited to be working with them to design furniture for the Eco Home. The company’s reverence for the environment and passion for superior craftsmanship couldn’t be more fitting with the project’s goal of constructing a high-performance home with minimal impact on the environment.

Progress on the home is going well and framing of the structure has begun! Once completed, the home will feature renewable energy sources, the latest technology and eco-friendly materials. And now the Armored Frog will be designing a dining table and a few other key pieces to outfit the home.

We’ll keep you posted on the design process and other contributors as we continue to source exceptional furniture for the house. But in the meantime, take a look at a few of Armored Frog’s beautiful creations!
