We are excited to be working with the Illinois Environmental Council (IEC) to furnish its new downtown office building in Springfield, Illinois.
We look forward to seeing IEC executive director, Jen Walling, and her team transform the IEC’s new home at 520 E. Capitol Ave. into space that will become an environmental community center for Springfield.
Our tables will serve as collaboration tables and are handcrafted by our team using 2×12 antique heart pine floor joists salvaged from the Colfax Hardware Store circa 1893 (Colfax, IL). IEC will also display information about this structure to help us pass on the history of these pieces to future generations.
The IEC, a coalition of 80 organizations, was founded in 1975 and serves as the environmental community’s eyes, ears, and voice in Springfield.
Protecting Illinois schoolchildren from exposure to lead in drinking water, reducing health risks and environmental impacts of pesticides and funding open space acquisition are just some of the accomplishments of the IEC to date.
