From Alex Geriner of Doorman Designs:
The materials we use are sourced from around the Gulf South with an emphasis on sustainability and an understanding of our environment. Much of our eco friendly furniture is built with reclaimed wood from historic New Orleans homes destroyed or damaged by Katrina. Growing up on the Gulf Coast, I know how much history is to be found in New Orleans’ architectural details. After Katrina, my heart broke seeing the city’s soul, flooded and ruined, and being torn down. I believe that each door, each window frame, and each piece of wood is a piece of the South that should never be lost, but saved. I like to think that I’m keeping their stories alive through my designs and furniture.
