METAL & WOOD Furniture Design
Clemenceau, 105 America Street +961 01 367 480 email@example.com
Metal & Wood is a furniture and design goods store founded in 2011. We opened our doors selling vintage and reclaimed wood furniture, and have now evolved into a well-curated shop stocking thoughtfully designed, high quality,contemporary and functional furniture and home goods Some of our furniture is built locally, while the rest is produced from a collaboration with talented designers who design and produce these pieces exclusively for us. Our goal is to find clever solutions and new materials and imbue our work with clever and functional details. We also work locally and regionally on producing custom pieces for commercial and residential projects. Our small goods are sourced from around the globe, with a focus on contemporary, graphic and clean aesthetic.
