What is Boat Wood Furniture and why buy it

Reclaimed wood is all the rage these days, but one aspect of this is more in fashion than ever before – Boat Wood Furniture! By the time you’ve finished reading this, you’ll have a better understanding and a new-found love for a unique and sustainable style of furniture. 

Old Boats

As the name suggests, boat wood furniture is quite literally made of wood from old boats.

The wood is reclaimed from boats that have become too damaged and expensive to repair, so the owner of the boat will make money by selling the materials to local carpenters who in turn can take the worn and reclaimed wood and turn it into a masterpiece.

Experienced carpenters can produce amazing rustic looking pieces which are all completely individual as they’re made from different woods, with different patterns, and, as they’re hand-crafted this means that they will all be slightly different meaning that no two pieces are alike.

Unique Style

If you’re wanting to add a new style to your home, then this is the perfect way to go. Amazing pieces of furniture can be produced this way, with reclaimed wood brought back to life in an array of different styles, colours and finishes. Whatever item of furniture you’re looking for, whether a bed, dining table, coffee table, chairs, book stand, shelves, drawers, amazing reclaimed wood sideboards and even TV stands – they’re sure to make a perfect feature that will look great in any room.

Great Ideas

When it comes to making a feature out of your boat wood furniture, why not try pairing the rustic vibes of the furniture with bare red brick wall? Or, leave the walls plain in a white or cream colour and let the furniture do all the design work for you? A simple backdrop will really make a feature of boat wood furniture, allowing the patterns and colours of the wood to be the sole focal point in the room.

Alternatively, you could use light to highlight the beauty of your new boat wood table or sideboard -you might like to brighten up the room with spotlights or maybe cosy fairy lights would take your fancy.
