Barclay: A luxurious new collection to grace your home

Barclay reclaimed wood collection of living room furniture

Most of us aspire to a little bit of luxury in our homes. The newest collection available at Modish Living provides just that. These stunning pieces of wooden furniture certainly aren't lacking in sophisticated, glamorous style, yet the classic designs create for timeless pieces you'll cherish for many years to come. 

What is so special about the Barclay collection is the use of reclaimed wood. So often nowadays, luxurious furniture is ultra contemporary, and lacks a certain warmth. The reclaimed wood of these pieces creates character in any room, yet is blended with contemporary touches to allow you to seamlessly blend the collection into an otherwise modern space. 

The Barclay Reclaimed Wood Coffee Table is the perfect statement centrepiece for your living room. As well as looking truly magnificent at the centre of your seating arrangement, the reclaimed wood coffee table provides a practical storage solution with the three drawers, making it easier to keep your living room clutter free and creating a true sense of luxurious living. Who doesn't love a coffee table with storage?!

Finding a reclaimed wood desk that will add something to your space can be tricky, but the dreamy Barclay Reclaimed Wood Desk does just that. Stunning in design and oozing elegance, this is a classic example of how office furniture needn't be purely practical. If you have more space, make your desk the centre of attention and place it as a floating desk away from the wall, or behind your sofa. 

The dining table in the collection is also exquisite. The Barclay Reclaimed Wood Dining Table is beautifully and skilfully designed to last a lifetime. With hidden drawers under the table, you even have a space to keep your fancy cutlery you only use on special occasions or even placemats and napkins you may want to hand when entertaining. The perfect reclaimed wood dining table with a personality of its own. 

The Barclay Reclaimed Wood Side Table would perfectly compliment the exquisite Barclay furniture collection or would add a touch of luxury into any living room. If your current wooden side table just sits around as a spot for the occasional coffee cup but lacking the style and sophistication it could offer, it may be time for a new addition.
