Colorado company I've Got Wood is using trees killed by the mountain pine beetle to create some very nicely-designed furniture and fixtures. Wood known as beetle kill pine is left with a distinctive blue ribbon of stain that becomes a perfect blank canvas for creating modern objects that serve as a tribute to Colorado's beautiful forests.
Each of their lamps is one-of-a-kind with a unique petal pattern as well as varied sizes, depending on the size of the board used. I've Got Wood also creates custom furniture and lighting for commercial and residential applications using beetle kill pine as well as a wide range of other materials.
