Reclaimed wood can be sourced from a variety of locations around the world, most often being pulled from old homes, shipping pallets and crates, and abandoned barns and warehouses. But that’s just the beginning! Once the wood is salvaged, the reclaiming process begins. The process involves de-nailing the wood, cleaning it, kiln drying and milling.
In doing our part to help protect the environment and offer more sustainable furniture styles, we’re proud to upcycle one of the world’s most naturally renewable resources. Crafting beautiful furniture with reclaimed wood helps keep our carbon footprint low while also reducing the need to cut down more trees.
Reusing salvaged wood also offers the benefit of built-in beauty. Reclaimed wood furniture like coffee tables, dining tables and dressers feature natural imperfections such as wood grains, nail holes, knots, pitting, patches and occasionally, mineral deposits. These organic characteristics only made possible by years of natural wear and are what makes each piece of reclaimed furniture so special.
Curious if the rustic nature of reclaimed wood is a match for your modern home? Focus on using your reclaimed wood pieces to bring warmth and texture to your living space, and pair with décor made from natural materials like stone, burlap and canvas to tie the look together.
Sustainability starts at home. Choosing reclaimed wood furniture is a stylish way to add a rustic contemporary flair to your living room or dining room, not to mention an eco-conscious conversation starter with your favourite house guests!
