When you go to buy a piece of reclaimed wood furniture it’s more than a simple transaction. You have to respect the character and characteristics of natural woods and pick a piece that speaks to you.
Each of these pieces is unique and individual and should showcase something about you by having them in your home. Here is our guide to buying reclaimed wood furniture.
Every piece of reclaimed wood furniture is entirely unique unto itself. Why? Because no two pieces of reclaimed wood are alike. Every piece has its own story and history which is what makes these furniture pieces so wonderful.
Before you begin your purchasing journey you should understand some of the things that set these pieces apart. Having an understanding of things like wood grains, knots, mineral deposits, holes, pitting, and nail holes help you understand the variances that make up the beauty of these pieces.
Old wood tells a story. Old wood reflects it’s life journey. It holds onto every ray of sunlight, the nutrients it was exposed to, and the aging that occurred in its time in use.
This means that reclaimed wood is some of the strongest wood out there. It’s already withstood the test of time. It will have a sense of age and character that cannot be duplicated through a commercial process.
The furniture itself becomes a conversation piece. Place it in a shared guest space to talk about history. Putting a piece like this into a bedroom can center the space and help you remain grounded with the earth and natural environment.
A unique, but gorgeous, the design aesthetic is combining rich historic reclaimed wood furniture with the sharp and stark lines of a modern aesthetic. The wood piece becomes the life and warmth of the room and allows it to be the highlight of the space.
Instead of having many of these pieces consider one large focal piece of reclaimed wood furniture so that it stands out and remains special.
Age brings out the beauty of the wood. It brings out the variety of colors inherent in each piece. You’ll notice hints of red, brown, cream, yellow, black and more in a piece of wood that has a rich history.
Do some research on your piece to figure out where the wood came from and figure out what job it had before. You’ll be able to bring some fun to your next dinner party as you discuss the rich history of the table you’re guests are seated around.
The richness and gorgeous qualities of reclaimed wood furniture are second-to-none and we here at Tampa Bay Salvage love it so much.
