  • Design That Deserves To Be Up On A Pedestal

    Normally, it pays to be a little modest about designs that have been born out of a moment of wild creativity and then manifested into being, especially when they are bold and unusual, but we are going to make an exception for our incredible Teak Stump Pedestal.

    Let’s not beat around the bush here: this teak pedestal vanity unit is exceptionally different. We doubt you’ll have seen anything quite like this before, especially not in terms of construction expertise and care, but more on that shortly.

    When it comes to teak bathroom furniture, we are all more used to sleek, polished surfaces and elegant uniformity, which we still have a lot of love for, but it never hurts to sidestep the comfort zone and embrace something new. That’s what we’ve done with our ultimate take on a natural teak vanity.

    What You Need To Know

    No two units can possibly be the same – Of course they can’t, the central stumps are organic items, chosen for their size and likelihood of suitability for hollowing out in the back.

    Every vanity comes complete with a sink – If you’ve long lusted after hand carved sinks, now is the time to claim one for yourself. Sturdy and safe, though delicately affixed to not overshadow the overall beauty, the sink itself is the perfect finishing touch to what will definitely be the focal point in your bathroom.

    Each vanity is ready to plumb – We don’t think there could be anything worse than investing in a stylish and unique vanity, only to find that you are expected to cut into the back in order to fix your plumbing system in place. That’s why we supply your solid teak vanity with a plug hole already in place, as well as hollow sections in the rear of the stump, for all of your pipework.

    The finish is up to you – There is so much variation in terms of how people like their bathroom furniture to be finished that we decided to supply these one-off vanity units in their natural state. This leaves you to decide if you want to stain, wax, paint, oil or lacquer and give you the freedom to do so, once it is in place, so you can coordinate with other bathroom pieces.

    Imbued With Pride

    While the stumps themselves dictate the finished shape and look of each reclaimed teak vanity, our artisans use their judgement and experience to hand select the best raw stumps to work with. You might also be surprised to learn that we include a full year’s warranty with each unit, even though they are going to be placed in a moist environment. Why? Because we know our quality can withstand a little water!

    Shipped free of charge within the contiguous 48 states and taking between 1-2 weeks to be dispatched, you can enjoy a slice of designer style and chic in the most private room on your home and get the satisfaction of almost instant gratification as well. How many pieces of solid wood bathroom furniture can offer that? Not many outside of Woodland Creek’s portfolio, we’d wager!

  • Mountain Styling You’ve Always Dreamt Of

    Not all beds have mastered the art of being both gorgeous to look at as well as sturdy, characterful and a true representation of rustic design that cuts through gimmicks and fashions. One that does, however, is our Mountain Log Bed.

    What makes our take on a hickory bed so different? The fact that we have a deep and meaningful connection to the wood that we use. Because of this, we not only take our time to select only the finest and most suitable logs, we then create designs that will support, not outshine the organic and inherent divinity. Sounds too good to be true? Let us tell you about a few of the details, so you can see just how much we respect the process of creating a stunning solid wood bed.

    Everything You Need and Want

    The first thing to know is that each of our beds are designed, crafted and shipped from right here in the USA. The second thing to take note of is that for this particular hickory bedroom furniture piece, we have chosen to make great use of reclaimed wood. You might be wondering where, as the design has such a ‘cut straight from the forest’ look about it, but we’ve built strength and heritage into this design through subtle inclusion.

    Chunky barnwood boards have been hand selected and used to cap off the head and footboard. It’s gentle touches such as this that take a rustic design to a more refined and luxurious level. Mountain man chic might be all the rage, but when it comes to a beautiful room to rest your head, you need some elegant touches to really lift your entire aesthetic. By finishing the steamed and shaped logs with such a neat accessory, we have created a harmony to our design that allows for either flannel or floral bed linen to be the perfect finishing touch.

    So Adaptable

    You’d be absolutely forgiven for assuming that any bed which makes good use of organically shaped logs would only truly work in a through-and-through rustic home, but we think there is scope for so much more. Imagine a family home, where each guest bedroom has a different theme…couldn’t you just picture this taking center stage in the ‘mountain’ room? Then again, let’s not discount lodges, cabins and ranches that would make a hickory log bed such as this one just fit straight in.

    Available in twin, queen, king or even California king size, there’s a perfect log bed waiting to be built for you and your home, because we craft to order. Your bed will be made just for you, by one of our master craftsmen, before being carefully packaged and shipped, at our cost, to your home within the 48 contiguous states.

    If you’ve been considering moving away from disposable furniture and investing in pieces that will give you comfort and joy for many years, now is the time and we want to help, so get in touch and let’s see what we can do for you!

  • Dealer’s Choice!

    The saying goes that you have to play the hand you’re dealt but if that hand were presented to you on our showstopping Rustic Game Table, we don’t think you’d mind one bit!

    Let’s get the elephant out of the room before we begin: we know that not everybody has a specific game room to house a beautiful table such as this. We also know that is an investment item and does not come with a throw away furniture price tag. These things having been said though, we know that more of you could welcome our redwood game table into your homes than you might think. Let us explain.

    Carving Out A Niche

    There’s something wonderfully appropriate about a wood furniture company ‘carving out a solid reputation’, don’t you think? When it comes to producing eye-catching designs that blur the line between function and beauty, we are happy to claim the niche as our own and think that this rustic card table is a truly representative example of why.

    You don’t need a game room, man cave or home bar space to justify a solid wood game table, as we think we’ve designed something special enough to be positioned in your main rooms. What’s more, you can customize the finished piece to make sure that it fits in with your existing décor perfectly.

    Let’s get back to carving for a moment. Take a look at the highly intricate juniper log base here. A masterclass in organic design, it is only possible to create something of this nature if you have the right people in your team and here at Woodland Creek, we have the best. Artists with wood, every person in our workshop brings years of experience and vision to the table, if you’ll excuse the pun, and have a natural talent for letting the majesty of the wood speak for itself. And only one thing is good enough to top a carved log base: a live edge top.

    Attention to detail is the name of the game with our rustic game table in redwood and juniper, so as well as marrying striking base formations with an organic slab on top, we knew that you’d want to choose the color of felt that you have applied. After all, the deep red in our pictures might be incredible, but it won’t blend with everybody’s interior design scheme, which is why we give you the choice of 30 exquisite shades.  We’re not suggesting that a bolder hue might distract your opponents, but we certainly don’t think it will hurt your chances of success!

    Given the intricate and specialist nature of our organic wood card table, we ask for at least 12-14 weeks to complete your build. This gives us time to source the perfect wood and allows the base to come into being naturally. We think you’ll agree that it’s worth the wait though and we offer free shipping within the USA, as a thank you for your patience.

    Beautiful, built for purpose and with no two ever being identical, why take a chance on a lesser game table when you could invest in the best and spread the cost with an easy financing package from Bread?

  • The Devil’s In The Details

    You might think that once you’ve seen one rustic entertainment center you’ve seen them all, but that could not be further from the truth. In fact, unless you’ve been enjoying our own portfolio of designs, we are willing to bet that you haven’t seen true artistry or craftsmanship yet. But that’s all about to change!

    A Legacy That Will Live On

    There’s a reason why we’ve bestowed part of our portfolio with the name Heritage Collection’. It goes deeper than the fact that genuine reclaimed barnwood has been used throughout, creating unique and seemingly antique pieces of furniture. It also relates to the fact that we know these items will be handed down through families, creating something of a legacy of their own. And why? Because they’ve been created to last a lifetime and nod to classic American carpentry and iconic rustic design tropes.

    Our Barnwood Entertainment Center is a stunning example of how impactful a solid wood TV stand can be. You might have previously thought of the furniture that you place your technology on top of as relatively unimportant but think again. Where do your eyes get drawn to when you sit on your sofa? Towards your television! By proxy, that means you are staring at its support more than you realize, or perhaps you COULD be aware of it, if you invested in a piece of genuine American heritage furniture.

    An American Icon

    We know that it sounds indulgent to buy an antique wood entertainment center, but you’ve taken time and money to create your perfect home. It’s your sanctuary and a haven for good furniture choices, so why not add in some true craftsmanship and domestic pride as well? Let us talk you through a few of the finer details.

    Built from solid wood, our reclaimed barnwood entertainment center has it all, including hand carved wooden hinges. We see this as attention to detail, as the main body has been beautifully crafted from antique material, so it’s only right that we use construction methods that suit the age. Plus, you know that these hinges are built to last! This is not flat pack furniture!

    Another thing to note is that although we have used a picture of a two-cabinet, one-drawer heritage collection entertainment center, we would be delighted to design and build a bespoke version, just for you. Whatever size, layout or functionality that you need, our master carpenters are ready and happy to accommodate.

    We know you’ll love the combination of a thick top, built to support even the largest of home cinema systems, as well as the useful storage underneath. We could have kept the front open, but in a busy home, we know that you’ll need somewhere to stow away all your remotes, magazines and other accessories that you might not want on display 24/7. Those all-important wooden hinges, forged metal latches and free shipping complete what’s on offer and if you need just one more thing to tip you over into making an investment into your living room, take a look at the reviews for this item. They come from verified buyers and say more than we ever could!

  • A Desk Fit For a CEO

    Never let it be said that we don’t thrive on a challenge, here at Woodland Creek Furniture! When we decided to see if we could transform the notion of office furniture from perfunctory and, often, a little dull, into explosively beautiful yet still functional, we knew we had our work cut out for us but our Hacienda Copper Desk is proof irrefutable that we managed to fulfill our mission!

    Overcoming Preconceptions

    The trouble with office furniture is that it has such a predestined purpose that practicality is usually allowed to overshadow any nuance of stunning design. We know what you might be thinking; that as long as a desk lets you be productive, why bother with fancy finishing touches and world-class design? Well, we happen to think that a space that you love being in, filled with gorgeous furniture and positive energy, will make you more productive than ever before and a striking desk is the perfect way to get started.

    A solid wood desk offers you timeless style and a sturdy base on which to build your empire but think about adding in some extra design nuances that will take your office from work-worthy to wow. Copper office furniture is enjoying a serious surge in popularity right now, but most people are stopping short of investing in something truly incredible, opting for accessories only, such as lamps and stationery storage. A copper and reclaimed wood desk? Now that’s something to really enjoy working on.

    One Of A Kind

    We know that if you are planning to invest in an extra special desk, you want to be assured that you’ll never walk into another office and see the exact same one, which is why we have taken steps to guarantee your individuality.

    We designed our Hacienda desk to be made from reclaimed wood. Not faux aged timber, but genuine reclaimed wood that features notches and marks from centuries of USA history in every plank. Finished by hand to create a tactile surface, you can run your hand across any part of this desk and feel that heritage within. With such an enigmatic material being used for the main constriction here, we knew that the only accent able to stand up to the pressure would be reclaimed copper and with nothing but repurposed antique materials in place, no two pieces can ever be the same.

    Designed by our team of visionaries and brought to life by masters of their craft, our Hacienda Copper Desk is just one example of how your office, whether at home or work, can be a thing of beauty as well as practicality. Handy cupboards and drawers have been included as a matter of course and we are also delighted to be able to offer this desk in any size and configuration that you want.

    One size doesn’t fit all in the business world and nor should it be expected to in your office either, so get in touch to start a conversation about bespoke designs.

  • Copper and Coffee Together At Last!

    The right coffee table can finish a room with an extra dose of elegance and practicality like no other item of furniture, which must be why it’s so hard to find the right one, especially when your taste runs a little more exotic and eye-catching. Here at Woodland Creek Furniture, we love creating designs that delight and surprise and when we conceptualized our Copperhead Coffee table with Copper Top, we knew we had struck gold. Well, copper actually, but you get the idea!

    It’s all in the details

    An antique wood coffee table is an incredible centrepiece in any cozy space, but the details have to be just right, otherwise it will look out of place. From the right level of aging to solid construction and maybe some piquant accents, you want your table to both stand alone as a piece of art and meld with the rest of your interior design scheme. We took all of these elements into consideration and created the ultimate copper inlaid coffee table that brightens any space.

    It all starts with our master craftsmen individually selecting the best barnwood timber, ensuring that each one has the most weathered texture and character. We only use genuine reclaimed wood with at least a century of history coursing through its grain and this design calls for heritage patina. With the solid and sturdy body of the barnwood coffee table completed, the artistry can really take hold.

    Our team of artisans take pride in doing things the proper way. Some might call this old fashioned, but we prefer to think of it as a nod to the skills and attention to detail that can so often be lacking in modern furniture. Of course, we could apply the copper sheet accents here by machine, but you would miss out on the joy of a finished article that has been brought to life by unimitable hands. Plus, only a hand hammered copper inlay can truly capture the texture of the timber that it adorns. Sometimes, you just have to take the more time-consuming route, for the perfect end result.

    Keeping things simple

    If you love the size and style of our copper canyon coffee table but inlaid metal isn’t quite your scene, we offer an option with a solid wood top instead and ordering this configuration couldn’t be simpler. We have included a dropdown menu on the product page, allowing you to choose between a wood or copper inlay finish, so simply click your choice, add to cart and check out as normal. This is a great option for any of you looking for a reclaimed wood coffee table, without any extra detailing.

    Designed, crafted and shipped for free within the USA, we firmly believe that our antique coffee table will be passed down through multiple generations of your family, becoming interwoven with your history, as well as the many years of heritage that the wood itself has already seen. What a beautiful way to honor the material!

     

  • Leave Preconceptions At the Dining Room Door!

    If we asked you to picture a rustic solid wood dining table, what image would come to mind? Something a little fussy maybe? Or with amplified patina, unnecessary metal braces and hard-to-match dining chairs?

    Well, first things first, that’s not how rustic furniture has to look, when it is designed well and made by artisans that understand their craft. Secondly, you can have a contemporary take on rustic designs, however unlikely that might sound, when you shop with us.

    A marriage of styles

    Hybrid designs are fantastic. They let you get the best of a few different influences, meaning that you can bring together a host of things that you enjoy, all in one piece of striking furniture, but it has to be done well. We know that not every new-meets-old design is a winner, which is why we took more time, extra care and a lot of consideration when we created our X Base Dining Table.

    We started with an idea centered around an x base dining table. The simple and striking nature of the look, coupled with the middle stretcher bar, creates an updated version of the traditional and much-loved trestle base dining table that features in so many rustic homes. From here, we knew that a solid wood top was the only option, which is offered in either alder or red oak, for that perfect farm style. The main design feature that we wanted to include, was adaptability though, which is why there are plenty of options for customizing your build.

    Made to measure

    When you want a suit that fits you perfectly, you go to a world-class tailor and when it comes to buying a piece of furniture that will last a lifetime, amplify its surroundings and fit a space without compromise, you come to us at Woodland Creek Furniture.

    Our contemporary rustic design gives you a host of options. The first thing we ask you to decide on is whether you want yours to be an expandable dining table. From there we offer a choice of six standard sizes for non-extenders and 18 for those that do increase by a leaf, or two. Next, you’ll select your preferred finish and finally, you’ll tell us which width will work best for you. By building in this much choice, we make it as simple as possible to select not only the most beautiful table that you’ve ever seen, but one that fits like it was individually commissioned. Of course, that’s also a possibility and you are very welcome to contact us and start a conversation about a truly bespoke build.

    We’ve taken the time to include all the features that you’d expect to see in a rustic table, from a trestle base to a solid wood top and the result is a breadboard end dining table that maintains sleek lines and simple character to keep it contemporary. Built to order, usually within 6-8 weeks, your dining room could be transformed in little more than two months if this is the right table for you!

  • A Santa Fe State Of Mind

    What do you get when you combine a striking walnut live edge top with artisanal metalwork? The answer is a rustic dining table that you’ll be proud to place at the center of your home and an investment piece of furniture that will turn friends and family positively green with envy!

    Solid wood dining tables, by their very nature, all have a lot of traits in common, meaning that the real trick is to find new and exciting designs that not only showcase the wood to its fullest, but also draw attention to unique nuances that make a table stand out from the crowd. Here at Woodland Creek Furniture, we specialize in the innovative and our Santa Fe Walnut Dining Table is a perfect demonstration of that ethos and driving force.

    A design that evolved intuitively

    Part of our wider Santa Fe collection, when we sat down to dream up our walnut dining room centrepiece, we knew one thing: we wanted it to be a live edge dining table. Enjoying a serious surge in popularity, natural finishes such as live edges can turn what would be a beautiful item into something other-worldly and timeless. We weren’t finished there, however.

    With a live edge already decided on, we knew it would be a challenge to come up with a leg or support style that would complement the walnut, without overshadowing it or simply being drowned out by its beauty. There was only one thing for it, we had to choose a handcrafted artisanal metal base, with an eye-catching walnut stretcher as part of the design. The finished look is a fetching and slightly contemporary take on rustic chic that would be perfectly at home in any setting. Let’s be honest, you can’t say that you’ve seen too many hand-forged base dining table designs that straddle the line between modern and rustic, can you?

    Craftsmanship you can depend on

    Offered in six standard sizes, ranging from 60-120” in length, there will be a pre-designed model that will work in your home, but should you want to customize and commission a bespoke size, that’s no problem.

    Every table, whether bespoke or a freely offered size, is built to order and with the same amount of care, attention and craftsmanship. For example, it doesn’t make a difference if you choose the smallest stock size or ask for a Santa Fe table to be made to very bespoke dimensions, you will still get a stunning natural wood dining table, complete with thick hand-hammered base and a live edge top.

    Delivered free of charge within the contiguous 48 states, the Santa Fe Walnut Dining Table comes with a full year of warranty and our hope that your purchase will be the first of many that cement a long-lasting relationship with us as your solid wood furniture provider of choice. If you need any more convincing, take a look at the review section, where you’ll find a five-star recommendation from a very discerning client!

  • Wash Away Memories Of Bad Bathroom Furniture

    If you’ve been thinking about revamping your bathroom, don’t go anywhere, as we have the PERFECT copper vanity unit to introduce you to today. Antique in style, built from the very best materials and creating a gorgeous focal point for the smallest room in the house, we know you’re going to fall in love with our Copper Vanity with Hand Hammered Copper Sink.

    A Match Made In Bathroom Heaven

    As far as we’re concerned, there’s only one way to make a solid wood vanity or a reclaimed wood vanity better and that’s by adding some recycled copper elements, to lift the whole design into a new sphere of bathroom furniture and that’s exactly what we have done here.

    Starting with the main carcass, we decided that genuinely reclaimed barn wood, with at least 100 years of character and strength, was the only material that would suffice. Injecting the piece with instant heritage and ensuring uniqueness, the reclaimed timber is also able to withstand the moisture in bathroom air, making it a steadfast choice, but let’s be honest and admit that the copper is really stealing the show here.

    A Design Masterclass

    Adding warm, gleaming panels to the cabinet and drawer fronts created an exciting and playful piece in itself, but with the addition of a hand hammered sink, the finished design is out of this world. If you invested in no other eye-catching pieces for your bathroom, the finished look wouldn’t suffer at all, as this recycled copper vanity can carry an interior design scheme all on its own.

    Creating a delightfully vintage ambiance, we think that traditional bathroom suites would pair exquisitely with our old world copper vanity, while giving you the chance to neatly store any modern appliances out of sight too. Though having said that, in an otherwise contemporary space, a surprising antique addition can make a big impact too. We can’t think of a home where this piece wouldn’t immediately ingratiate itself and look the part. In rustic homes, such as cabins and lodges, we can see it fitting in beautifully with a large collection of solid wood furniture, but equally, in a modern home, it would be a gorgeous focal point that could easily be expanded on.

    Ample storage has been factored in, as you would expect with a useful vanity unit. A full height cabinet allows you to hide way bulky items that disrupt the clean lines of your bathroom, while smaller drawers offer you convenient spaces for small, easily lost items.

    Given the special nature of this design and the fact that we make to order, we ask for a little more time than usual. We aim to complete production within 12-14 weeks, but we would prefer not to rush either our artisans or the perfection that they are crafting, just for you.

    For more information or to discuss other vanity options, please get in touch. We will be happy to devise a plan for your next purchase.

  • Don’t Sleep On A Stylish Opportunity!

    Technically we DO want you to sleep, because today, we are taking a closer look at one of our most beautiful, well considered and popular reclaimed wood bed designs.

    The Barn Wood Bed with Forged Branches is a prime example of the way that we are always looking to innovate and bring the most unique, yet timeless and functional designs possible to our customers, both old and new. Rustic beds can be a little too ‘earthy’, if the nuances aren’t brought together in the exact right way, but we know that, which is why we’re the experts at creating balanced aesthetics that work in any home. Let’s take a closer look at some of the details here, to prove the point.

    Understated Yet Eye-Catching

    A difficult harmony to capture, marrying an unassuming yet beautiful set of features together doesn’t always work, but with our barnwood bed, we know we’ve got it right. Starting with a sturdy frame, constructed entirely from genuinely aged barn wood, there is an elegant and stoic presence to this bed, with the solid lines being broken up by striking metalcraft.

    Our in-house metal artisan hammers each pine cone branch design personally, before it is expertly added to the headboard to create something that looks incredible in any style of home. We’re not just paying lip service to the universal appeal of this bed, as we have seen it taking center stage in rustic bedrooms as well as more contemporary spaces, because the styling makes it adaptable. Add in the fact that you can choose from a queen, king or Californian king and it is easy to see why this is such a sought-after design.

    Making It Just For You

    We are craftspeople first and a business second, which is why our pieces are made to order, not simple art of a production line operation and that gives you, the customer, an opportunity to get involved with the design process. We think that offering you the chance to make a bed that you’ve fallen in love with 100% perfect for you and your home is something rather special and we never shy away from the potential for custom work. With that in mind, if you love this rustic elegant wood bed but have a couple of ideas for the metalwork, get in touch and we can see if our metal guru can turn your vision into reality.

    A Worthy Investment

    Your bed is one of the most important pieces of furniture that you’ll ever buy. Not only is it a focal point in your bedroom, it is something that you’ll depend on for many years, which is why we want to reassure you that we only use genuine reclaimed barn wood in this beautiful design. Strength and character are interwoven into every piece that we make and then, we inject something extra; a solid dose of American pride.

    Free shipping and a generous warranty come as standard, so why not take a closer look and see if this could be your forever bed?
