Made of is used when the material the subject consists of doesn't change during the process of making the subject: Chairs are made of wood.
Here, wood is still wood. It doesn't transform into something else. On the other hand, made from is used when the material changed its nature: Paper is made from wood.
Now, wood disappeared — it was transformed into paper. Some more examples:
The house is made of bricks. [They are still bricks.]
Wine is made from grapes. [Grapes turn into wine.]
