Community Story of the Week: 7/17/2013

Sebastian Cox, Founder of Sebastian Cox Furniture uses sustainable practices to create genuine works of art. He uses Coppiced Hazel trees, a rather under-utilized tree, as his primary resource to build his furniture pieces. These trees can be managed quite easily and can grow up to five feet in their first season of growth.

Sebastian’s passion began by growing up in the country-side and being surrounded by the woods. The locally-sourced timber is lightweight and strong so it is a perfect fit for the high quality furniture that he produces.
