Reclamation Art + Furniture is led by artisan furniture maker-designer Steve Tiller. We are a California-based boutique makers studio dedicated to working with a unique combination of reclaimed, urban harvest and new materials.
Our belief is that simple clean design can produce beautiful, lasting, handmade objects for your environment. Our hope is that these pieces remain in your care for generations to come.
We favor locally harvested woods, along with salvaged lumber, brass, blackened industrial steel and glass as our chosen mediums. Working to create simple modern lines in harmony with the existing organic character of the components, old paint, holes, flaws, and markings tell the story of the past and find new purpose in original one-of-a-kind objects. This utilization of time tempered stock produces elegant, natural, richly textured finishes that draw you into these pieces. Our work brings together the old and new, the raw and refined, to provide a unique experience for the user.
The modern pieces created here, are not only beautiful functional works of art, but also embody responsible design through salvage and reuse. In this way, every piece can connect us to the past... and the future.

As the client, when requesting a new untested design, please understand that the process is an artistic one. It is possible that certain details may arise which have not been accounted for in the concept phase. Slight design and engineering adjustments may need to be made throughout the process. Our mission is to properly accomplish a piece that is artistically beautiful and structurally sound. Your understanding of our need for an artist's liberty is necessary in the shaping of natural materials and the making of one-of-a-kind original work.
