revision collage of pices A tour through the gallery reveals a wide variety of highly functional, stylish items. Shelving, cabinets, benches and chests are built from interior and cabinet doors. Outdoor accouterments like planters and arbors are made from reclaimed lumber, doors, stair railing parts, salvaged hardware and more. Items are built to meet the needs of small spaces and priced to be competitive and affordable.

 

Who is coming up with all these great ideas?

Eberhard Eichner – Lead Designer/Builder

With an extensive 35 year background in all aspects of custom woodworking, design and manufacturing procedures, Eberhard has been the creative force and artistic originator of repurposed furniture at The REvision Division since 2011. He has been transforming marginal, “orphaned” and discarded materials into functional and beautiful pieces. His work furthers the re-purpose process and empowers the community through education, design consultation and shared experimentations. Eberhard was born, raised and received his journeyman’s certificate in Berlin, Germany. He has been residing in the Northwest since 1978, in Whatcom County since 2001. He gives the credit to the foundation of his re-purpose skills to his family’s imaginative resourcefulness through necessity and fun.

Matt Vaughn – Designer/Builder

Matt has over 20 years of experience in building and fabrication with a variety of materials before joining the REvision Division team. Knowledge in a wide range of manufacturing techniques was gained at The University of Washington where he earned a BFA in Industrial Design and a second BFA in painting. At the same time he began working in the building salvage industry in Seattle and developed a love for working with reused materials.  Matt has lived in the Pacific Northwest for almost 20 years with the last 7 of those in Bellingham.

Goals

Since 2011, our team has crafted over 500 individually-designed pieces of functional furnishings each year. These have all been built from repurposed building materials in our own two stores.

  • Building techniques are being developed that increase the speed and efficiency of creating furniture from reclaimed materials.
  • We consider it REvision Division a “laboratory” and testing facility for materials and ideas.
  • Custom designs meet the needs of individual home owners and businesses.

Our designers explore, develop and determine techniques and procedures to craft highly functional, durable and pleasing furniture from these materials:

    • Hollow-core, louver and other random doors
    • “Orphaned “ cabinet doors
    • Salvaged lumber and molding
    • Flooring remnants
    • Ceramic and Glass
    • Mismatched furniture components
    • Miscellaneous hardware and metal
    • Woodcraft production overruns
    • Incomplete stair parts
    • Showroom samples
    • Whatever else strikes our fancy
