Reclaimed wood is a popular choice of material for rustic furniture, but one particular type of wood you may not be so familiar with is Boat Wood Furniture. Let’s look into more detail about this unique and sustainable style of furniture – we think by the time you’ve finished reading, you’ll have a new-found love for your home.

Old Reclaimed 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 damaged and can no longer be used out at sea. The wood is solid, so the owner will sell the materials to local carpenters who will take the reclaimed wood and turn it into a beautiful piece of reclaimed furniture.

Experienced carpenters can work magic and produce amazing handcrafted rustic-looking pieces, which are all completely individual as they’re made from different types of woods with unique patterns.

Great Ideas

When it comes to making a feature out of your boat wood furniture, why not try pairing the rustic vibes of the piece with a bare red brick wall? Or, paint the walls 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 recycled boat 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 by brightening the room with spotlights or maybe twinkling fairy lights for more magical boat table ideas.
