about us

Steen Lundberg & Jody Strauch Lundberg, have spent 20 plus years in the historic restoration and remodel business in Colorado and Nebraska.

Welcome to Out of the Box – the Tiffany’s® of Recycled Goods!

Founded in 2011 by Jody Strauch-Lundberg and Steen Lundberg, Out of the Box offers the finest designer names in gently used Recycled and Reclaimed Home Improvement products at affordable prices. Every piece in the 20,000 square foot showroom has been personally selected, chosen for its exceptional quality.

Dear Friends,
We have always loved the “hunt” for high quality recycled building products and furniture.

Our passion for discovering lightly used discarded gems began over 20 years ago. We were building and renovating historic and luxury homes in the Colorado Rockies and looking for superlative furnishings. When seeking that special high-end item in the reclaimed product world, we found it frustrating that world-class architectural pieces were often scattered randomly across dusty, cluttered rooms.

We believe beautiful pieces deserve to be treated to the utmost in care: cleaned, tested, and displayed properly in a vignette setting in a well-lighted showroom floor. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to be able to find that that fabulous one-of-a-kind piece and clearly imagine how it would look in your home?

We feature the best in custom doors, lighting, furniture, entire kitchens and baths, originally curated by top interior designers. Since these items are reclaimed or recycled, we are able to offer them at highly reduced prices!

Out of the Box is an environmentally green company and we believe strongly this is the way of the future – reusing remarkable products for a major renovation or simply selecting that special character piece for your home or office.

We invite you to visit us in our new 20,000 square foot showroom in Ralston, NE or give us a call about your design needs.

Thank you for your interest!

Jody Strauch-Lundberg & Steen Lundberg
