REvision Division - New Furniture From Reclaimed Materials

REvision Division

The RE Store is building unique, quality furniture from reclaimed materials.

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?

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.

David Spangler – Designer/Builder

David grew up in Port Townsend, WA, where he was surrounded by local history, Queen Anne buildings, and antiques. He was also exposed to the wood shop early on by his wood working father, who made furniture and toys. In his early twenties, David started creating miniature architectural buildings from found objects, branching out later to build several larger wall hanging architectural art pieces from salvaged building materials. A Bellingham resident since 1988, David found his way to The RE Store in 1995 and has been working for us, off and on, ever since. In 1998, he fabricated re-purposed bookshelves from salvaged materials,and then started an earth friendly debris hauling business that ran for over seven years. Returning to work for The RE Store in 2006, David implemented The RE Store’s successful furniture repair program in December of 2013 that continues today. Ever excited about up-cycling, and the creation, design, and building of products based off of unwanted materials, he joined the Revision Division team in February, 2015.

And a big thank you to Eberhard Eichner, who was our original Lead Designer/Builder. We couldn’t have gotten this program going without his creative force, infectious passion for and innovation with salvage materials, and we appreciate his 4 years with us!

Since 2011, our team has crafted over 500 individually-designed pieces of functional furnishings each year. These have all been built from re-purposed 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

Your feedback is important to us, whether it is an idea for a piece or constructive criticism of items in use. Please contact us with your inquiries.
