Refined Elements LLC

As a thought leader in urban tree re-use / salvaging of historical trees which we turn these trees into some of the finer tables and counter-tops you will find across the US, I have a 26th idea for folks! Normally our quality of dining table can cost an upward of $6K and far beyond that, while our coffee, sofa, console, etc tables can cost $1.5K+. These are some of the finest live edge and natural edge style of furniture that is typically reserved for those with large budgets versus the lower quality $2000-3500 tables at retail stores. I have alternatives to offer. Have the top custom made and buy the base component directly off the web. Most folks don't realize that some companies like Refined Elements LLC will offer pre-finished (ready for top coat finish) or completely finished tops (we use more commercial grade finishes) directly to homeowners. This can save quite a LOT of money on the base and labor side. Plus, the real uniqueness and appeal is the wood itself as bases are typically hidden and details are hard to see (unless you crawl around near the floor). There are literally dozens & dozens of very good quality, economical bases offered on Etsy and the likes for only $500 or so (we help our clients with recommendations here). Heck, pin hair legs for coffee and console tables can be found for $50 and stainless versions for just under $100. So theoretically, a homeowner could spend less than 1/2 the money and end up with a very rare, heirloom furniture top at a great price. And bases are easy to replace & update over time. We of course are happy to help our clients if they want to go this route. But if you know of a furniture maker locally that you prefer, if you ask them about this, I am willing to bet that the great majority would love to support their potential clients this way. As an example, the <102" long walnut tops on our $5500-7500 tables can be shipped directly to most folks for an all-in cost of $2500-3000. See an example below.


Oh, if you care about our forests, environment, & happens to all our dead or fallen trees, please check outthis video about urban re-use lumber & furniture products. We are trying to save America, one tree at a time & need help socializing our mission to benefit our local communities. Few folks are even aware that we have better options to re-purpose trees & turn them into amazing pieces of urban furniture.
