Since 1995, Phoenix-area businessman Jason Scott has been creating furniture using only recycled teak wood salvaged from abandoned buildings in Java. Handcrafted by local Javanese woodcarvers and carpenters, the pieces have become well-known as the Jason Scott Collection.

Exclusive to Robb & Stucky is Scott’s Urban Village Collection, whose design incorporates many small pieces of rugged-looking scrap teak. This new line includes the Cladico bed and nightstands, pictured here. The bed is available in queen as well as king sizes.
