Designing with Reclaimed Wood Furniture

Reclaimed Wood Cabinet

Most interior design trends have short lives (some don’t even last one season!) but eco-friendly values are definitely here to stay. Sustainable materials offer countless benefits. Using repurposed furniture pieces in a design helps shrink the budget, reduce strain on the environment, and best of all, they add unique character to a space that exists nowhere else.

Reclaimed Wood Table

One particularly exciting possibility within the world of reclaimed furniture is boatwood. As the name suggests, these pieces are constructed with planks from boats that no longer float. Usually, the soon-to-be-ex boat owner will donate or sell their failing craft to carpenters or another tradesman. Boards that have retained their structural integrity are spruced up and set aside for projects. Their distinct finishes are kept in tact while the cleaning, sealing and straightening jobs are completed. Sometimes shops will augment the prominent boatwood with traditional hardwood frames, legs or accents. More complex pieces like dressers, chests and TV stands benefit most from this partnership. We also offer boatwood pieces with metal frames– these have an industrial vibe, so they should be utilized in contemporary, industrial or eclectic spaces.

Reclaimed Wood Drawers

The complexion of boatwood is often colorful, roughly textured and always unique. This characteristic paves an easy path for boatwood pieces to serve as focal points in their appointed spaces. A boatwood coffee table could accompany any style sofa, but it will always be the star. Accent pillows that complement the tones in the wood will bring the space together. Another time-honored setup involves smaller boatwood side tables flanking a sofa or pair of accent chairs. Boatwood shelving can be installed above a fireplace, or even used as a frame for wall-hung artwork.

All this hype about boatwood is not meant to shadow the astounding possibilities of other reclaimed woods. These boards come from torn-down barns, homes, factories, wine casks, shipping crates and plentiful other sources. As a bonus, all of these interesting sources include fascinating conversation starters. If you own an older home, you may already have some beautiful wood in your garage rafters or on the attic floor. As if the gorgeous charm of it wasn’t enough, reclaimed wood is also stronger than modern wood. Because it was usually harvested decades ago, reclaimed wood is from a generation of stronger trees than the modified forests we have today. This means reclaimed wood is harder and more durable than modern furniture woods. The classic warm tones of these pieces lend themselves to incorporation in any style of home. Live-edge side tables will sit beautifully next to both an Eames chair or a large cushioned sectional. Reclaimed dining tables feature unique knots, grains and amber tones that no other table can possess, plus you get to admire them up-close every day! Consider pairing a colorful bedspread with a pair of stunning side tables. You could also select a beautiful bench to place along the foot of your bed, whether it happens to be modern, bohemian or arts and crafts style.

However you use reclaimed wood furniture, ensure that proper lighting and complementary surroundings do its gorgeous appearance justice, and don’t forget to stand back and enjoy the unique beauty of it!
