Stil Novo Design's recycled oak wine barrels creations, unique eco-friendly custom furniture, elegant home & wedding decor & 'green' gift ideas are made with recycled French oak wine barrels. We are a family business located in California where we design and manufacture all of our creations. Every piece is completely hand crafted.
Why wine barrels? The chemical properties of oak itself play a significant role in winemaking, affecting the color, flavor, and texture of the wine; over time many of the oak properties get "leached" out of the barrel though and after 3 to 5 vintages the barrel is ready to be discarded.
That's when we rescue, recycle and transform them into unique beauty to be given a new life in our customers' hands.
Our European heritage brings an innovative, highly sophisticated sense of style and superior manufacture standards to this century’s ‘green revolution’.
Our concern for the environment doesn't affect, nor compromise, the quality and sense of esthetic conveyed in our creations; we proudly strive to exceed our customers' expectations.
We want the eco-friendly to be elegant, refined, chic and stylish and we don't believe in shabbiness!!
The upcycled shouldn’t be inferior to the high-end market’s standards and moreover should maintain the same sense of exclusivity and distinctiveness.
We hope you'll enjoy our products as much as we've enjoyed creating them for you and that the thought of furnishing your home without cutting any living tree will only add to the pleasure of your purchase :)
