With tonnes of character, warmth and not forgetting the eco-friendly benefits, reclaimed wood furniture is the gift that keeps on giving. It's not just used to make the classic farmhouse dining table anymore. FSC certified salvaged wood is used to make the most gorgeous and striking pieces of furniture that will blend into any style of home be it modern, minimalist or retro. Being solid wood and hand-finished these are investment pieces that you will want to keep in your home for many years to come.
Most of our best-selling pieces are those crafted from reclaimed and repurposed wood. Here, we've pulled together our top 5 favourite collections to tempt you....
1. The Standford Collection
This top pick of our customers combines reclaimed wood with industrial style for a timeless collection of classic industrial furniture. You can transform any room in a home and give it a modern industrial or rustic look with this best-selling range. Whether you're looking to introduce a few industrial elements or to turn and entire room over to this loft-living style, the Stanford collection has something for the bedroom, living room, dining room and hallway.
What we love most: the nail holes and marks of its previous use clearly visible in the wood, along with the distressed finish to the black steel legs.
2. The Farringdon Collection
Forever popular, this really is one for the modern country home. The Farringdon collection has everything a space desires, from a sturdy extendable table to a rustic TV stand. Crafted from wood salvaged from old factories which is then crafted into glorious everyday pieces of furniture, the variations in wood colour, the natural undulations give a glimpse into the history of the wood, ensuring each and every item is genuinely unique and one-of-a-kind.
What we love most: the light lacquer finish that adds a contemporary grey hue to the wood.
3. The Dorset Collection
Reclaimed wood furniture doesn't have to be all about dark wood as the Dorset shows us. Still crafted out of 100% solid reclaimed wood, this collection is part finished in distressed white paint to bring a light and airy feel to each piece. For the dining space there is a range of dining tables, including the popular trestle style table, solid wood sideboards as well as a complete range of living room furniture, helping you to bring in reclaimed furniture without it dominating the whole room.
What we love most: the distressed white finish and natural imperfections ensure the wood gets better with age.
4. The Luxe Kensington collection
This exquisite furniture collection combines rustic reclaimed wood with industrial, but this time the industrial features are in polished stainless steel that elevates the collection to something far more glamorous. The Kensington sideboard, for example, would catch the eye of anyone who walks into your dining room or living room, whilst the best-selling reclaimed wood dining table with protective glass top makes this diva of a dining table suitable in a family home as well as a minimalist contemporary space.
What we love the most: the rustic finish of the wood is achieved by first sandblasting then cleaning old reclaimed railway sleepers - how cool is that?
5. The Beam collection
When it comes to beautiful bedroom furniture then the Beam collection definitely deserves a mention. A solid wood bed is a firm favourite in the bedroom, and if you're choosing a forever bed, the Beam collection is handcrafted to last for years and years. Expertly made from solid reclaimed beams, Beam is made to order guaranteeing you are buying an authentically unique piece of furniture and not an off-the-peg item. With bedside tables and a wooden chest of drawers you can furnish your bedroom using sustainable furniture and in the knowledge that it will last a lifetime. The collection also includes a range of industrial dining tables and wooden benches, along with a collection of solid wood living furniture, such as wooden sideboard and rustic TV stand.
What we love the most: it's made right here in the UK and is made to order.
