Vancouver-based Union Wood Co utilizes real birch bark to complete their series of lacquered storage cabinets. Birch bark is an adaptable material often used in Northern indigenous handicrafts as its durability and strength, along with its organic surface pattern, create beautiful results. The Birch Bark Series of cabinets feature door panels clad in birch bark that’s harvested in northeastern Alaska, which are paired with black or white lacquered cabinets for a modern look.

As each tree’s bark is completely unique, the bark doors will be as well, guaranteeing one-of-a-kind pieces. The cabinets come in various sizes, ranging from bedside pieces to credenzas, making sure there’s one to fit your needs.
