Reclaimed Wood in Contemporary Furniture
You might remember our recent blog on mountain rustic bathroom design, http://blog.homeontherangeinteriors.com/featured/mountain-rustic-bathroom-design-inspiration/ illustrating the use of natural materials and reclaimed wood in rustic bathrooms . We have been using reclaimed wood in our designs for the past 15 years, from Old Homestead Ranch style homes to Rustic Contemporary homes. We are now having fun watching its popularity expand to include contemporary homes all over the country and even all over the world. From city lofts to Malibu beach front houses to Swiss ski chalets, reclaimed wood is being used for interior finishes, furniture and bathroom vanities. Part of its current popularity stems from the interest in green design. Re-purposing is a great way to go green, and mixing steel with reclaimed wood gives the furniture a more industrial look that works well in contemporary design. In this blog we are focusing on the use of reclaimed wood in contemporary furniture design and we hope you enjoy looking at some of our favorite pieces!
The reclaimed wood that’s part of this contemporary bath furniture style vanity we spotted on Houzz is a perfect example of mixing steel and reclaimed wood.
The following three pieces are all from Four Hands:
And the next two are from Classic Home:
This coffee table is from a Breckinridge, CO company that makes contemporary pieces from Beetlekill pine. We love that they’re creating something wonderful out of the devastation the beetles caused to Colorado Lodgepole pines.
If you’re drawn to any of these pieces, Home on the Range can help you order them for your space.
