Thank you for visiting our new site! We're so excited to share our story with you. It starts out a little dark, but please stick with us to find out how you can help turn a big problem into a stylish solution.
The historic California drought and a tiny bark beetle have killed more than 102 million of California's iconic Sierra Nevada pines. The dry trees are a major wildfire risk to local communities and a serious safety hazard to people who live, work and play in Sierra forests. Left to rot in the forest, the dead pines threaten to emit tons of carbon dioxide our climate just can't afford.
When we learned about these risks, we wanted to take action to protect the California communities and landscapes we love.
And when we saw that a natural process imbues the wood with strikingly unique blue, green, and orange hues, we knew we had to introduce it to Californians who love high-quality, contemporary furniture, and want to make a difference.
We named the stunning wood SapphirePine. We can't wait to share it with you in our upcoming premium SapphirePine furniture line.
We hope you'll stay tuned as we provide updates about how you can bring SapphirePine into your life to transform your home while you help transform California's landscape.
We see this as an adventure, and we look forward to sharing it with you!
