• LIGNUM owner and restorer of works of art creates ecological awareness throughout the US
MIAMI – In the midst of the strong pandemic plaguing the world, Cuban businessman Nelson Paredes continues to work for the health of the environment and promotes sustainable awareness and ecologically friendly production throughout the country thanks to his LIGNUM Custom Woodwork shop (www.lignumcd.com), the brand with which he has made history in the United States and the rest of the world thanks to his work with hotel chains such as Hilton, The Ritz-Carlton, EPIC, The Breakers, Marriott, to name a few; and iconic theaters like the Fillmore at Jackie Gleason, in Miami Beach.
Hand in hand with the best architects and designers in the country, the restorer of works of art with a specialty in stained glass offers personalized products to his clients and although he does not design spaces, through his unmatched talent he manufactures everything necessary, and to the taste of the consumer to decorate home interiors, hotels, restaurants, etc.
The Lignum brand recently renewed it’s professional portfolio by incorporating flowerpots made from reclaimed wood. In multiple shapes, sizes, and techniques, these “Cube-style” pieces have become an example of creativity and ecological awareness for the entire world.
“It all started because after finishing my projects I realized that I had a lot of waste left. So I took on the task of making furniture with what we had left over and little by little I learned about recycling,“ said Paredes, who built a true work of art at Bodega Sobe – a nightclub located in Miami Beach – built with reclaimed wood and famous for its unique style and antiquity.
Thanks to projects like these, LIGNUM (www.lignumcd.com) has been able to give a second life to wood, always respecting the essence of this material and its own style, since, for Paredes, this becomes a metaphor because wood is reborn, since the Plant pots hold live plants and, moreover, are made by reusing a material that had been discarded and brought back to life.
Bringing in wood from all over the United States, LIGNUM’s production is 100% made in Miami. The company works with all kinds of materials and stands out for projecting each of its works in an artistic way.
