Designing with a purpose has taken on a whole new meaning with projects like Reclaimed Cleveland. Turned into a thriving furniture brand, Reclaimed Cleveland repurposes local materials headed to the landfill. Like many once booming industrial American cities, Cleveland lost a significant chunk of its population during the late 21st century, resulting in countless of abandoned homes. Reclaimed Cleveland takes these materials to create heirloom quality furniture that many covet.

Founded by Cleveland native Deej Lincoln, Reclaimed Cleveland predominantly revolves around the use of wood. From clocks to tables and mirrors, each product is crafted by a team of skilled carpenters. Reclaimed Cleveland specifically creates unique pieces chock full of history. In fact, their origins are made traceable by the company.
