Long Wool Sofa
Oh no, this furry creation is not made from Chewbacca or a wooly mammoth, it's actually wool from the Icelandic sheep—brought to Iceland by the Vikings, Icelandic sheep have been bred for a thousand years in a very harsh environment making the wool extremely long and thick, but also soft and supple. The back and sides of this iconic sofa are made from reclaimed oak barnwood—If they could speak, what stories would these boards tell?

Reclaimed Oak Boards
Reclaimed oak is prized for its strong, prominent grain and rich array of colors ranging from blonde to nutty brown tones. It has a unique variety of character including worm holes, checks, cracks, knots and nail holes created in its previous life. This combination creates a stunning and distinguished Old World look. 100% of reclaimed lumber is sawn from salved timbers or 150–200 years old planks.
The Icelandic sheep is a breed of domestic sheep. The Icelandic is a mid-sized breed, generally short and stocky, with face and legs free of wool. The fleece of the Icelandic sheep is dual-coated and comes in white as well as a variety of other colors, including a range of browns, grays and blacks.
Icelandic sheepskins come in many colors and are not dyed. The hide is quite soft and is generally 6–8 square feet in size. The wool can be up to 8 inches in length. The variety of colors inherent within the sheep often makes articles made from Icelandic sheepskin quite striking.
