The essence of the Square Roots’ philosophy lies in its commitment to sustainably sourced natural materials. The primary resource used in the production of Square Roots’ furniture is French white oak. The cool climate of northern Burgundy produces the ideal conditions for a harder heavier wood, which in turn makes for a timber rich in tannins. It is the nature of the tannins that creates a colorful and varied finish in our table tops and wood products. Tannins, when chemically treated, react and bring out the fullness of the grain and the diversity in colors that are unique to the Square Roots’ collection. We aim to embrace the natural characteristics of each piece of lumber; hairline fractures and open splits are double dovetailed together and incorporated into the art of our expression. It is our belief that the natural properties of the raw lumber is what makes each and every piece of furniture we create timeless and one of a kind. What defines Square Roots is smart, contemporary, classic design dedicated to harnessing the unique nature of all the resources we use. Hand crafted stainless steel, cast iron and brass detailing bring added texture and dimension to the enduring quality of Square Roots’ designs. Nuevo is the proud exclusive distributor of the Square Roots’ line of furniture for all of North and South America.
