‘Wood’ You Like to Sit Down?
LAS VEGAS – A custom tailgating package built into the Chevrolet Suburban Premium Outdoors concept features a handcrafted table and benches made of recycled wood salvaged from purposefully deconstructed Detroit homes.
The table and benches were designed and built by Workshop Detroit, a furniture company whose products are made almost entirely of salvaged wood and materials. It includes material from three deconstructed homes – and each section is stamped with the donor home’s address.
“Using salvaged materials like this is more than simply recycling and keeping valuable materials out of a landfill – it’s about preserving something tangible from Detroit’s history,” said James Willer of Workshop Detroit. “That house may no longer exist, but a piece of its legacy lives on.”
Workshop Detroit started a year ago as a pop-up shop during the holiday season and is now in a permanent location in Detroit’s Fischer building – in the heart of the city’s resurgent Midtown district.
Suburban is a piece of Detroit’s history, too. It is the industry’s original SUV and celebrated its 80th anniversary with the 2015 model year. It is the longest-running, continually produced nameplate in the automotive industry and the redesigned 2015 model represents its 12th generation.
The Suburban Premium Outdoors is one of a trio of outdoors-themed concept trucks and full-size SUVs introduced by Chevy at the SEMA Show – the world’s largest automotive personalization trade show. In addition to the salvaged-wood table and benches, the concept tailgating package also includes a big-screen, smart HDTV mounting in the cargo area.
The concept Suburban also features a custom Pepperdust exterior color with Warm Tarnished accents, as well as additional concept styling parts and Chevrolet Accessories 22-inch wheels with body-color accents. Inside, it’s leather-trimmed, Saddle and Cocoa-colored cabin gives the Suburban’s interior a unique ambience that’s complemented with Mustard piping, Warm Tarnished trim accents and a suede-trimmed headliner.
