A Tour On the Art of Reclaimed Wood & Upcycled Pieces

We have been quite pleased and excited about some of the new Reclaimed Wood pieces we've been getting in the store. The movement of using reclaimed wood, which is wood that was previously used in the building of another structure, has been growing by leaps and bounds over the past few years.
 For obvious reasons, reclaimed wood is a "green" alternative to furniture that uses new woods.  But from a design aesthetic, reclaimed wood furniture offers a rustic and blemished appeal that gives each piece a bit of charm and character.  Your imagination can run wild thinking of all the possible exciting origins your reclaimed piece may have been born from.

The pieces we are featuring in our store are from Indonesia and are hardwood, with a waxed finish.  The finish means each piece's unique coloring will be protected, and the ease of care is superb.
Take a look below at some of the newest Reclaimed Wood pieces we are featuring in our showroom.  We have a bit of everything, including coffee tables, interesting benches and dining room tables. 

In addition to unique Reclaimed Wood pieces, we have some other interesting up-cycled pieces including this amazing one-of-a-kind antique art storage box.  The signs of distress add an instant vintage flea market appeal.
Last on our up-cycled tour are these amazing hypo-allergenic decorative pillows fashioned from vintage feed sacks.  The artwork is pure French chic and adds a bit of old-world feel to any room. 
We hope you've enjoyed this tour of the latest pieces we are loving in our store.  Please contact us with any questions, or stop on by and have a look for yourself.
