West Elm is getting in on the reclaimed lumber game with their new Stria storage collection, manufactured in India. The face of each unit incorporates a type of wood called saal, taken from dismantled Indian railway trestles, that lends each piece a handmade look.
It being West Elm, it doesn't come cheap, of course: The nightstand alone comes in at $300. But we like the idea of mass-market companies playing around with this sort of differentiated mass production.
