  • Rustic Barn Wood Beds

    Barnwood Bed with Metal Horse Art

    Bold design for your bedroom

    This one goes out to all the equestrian fanatics. We see you and appreciate you! We also know that a lot of you would love to be able to treat yourselves to a solid wood horse bed and now, you can.

    We know that a rustic horse bed might sound a little odd to some of you out there but bear with us and you’ll soon be wondering if you have space for one too! The problem with themed beds is that if you go too over the top, the underlying message and beauty will be lost, but go too subtle and it won’t please the true devotees. We languished over our barnwood bed with metal horse art and we think we have struck the ideal balance.

    Barnwood Bed with Metal Horse Art

    The frame has been constructed from genuine reclaimed barnwood. Adding an extra level of significance to the design, this antique timber most likely came from outbuildings used to keep horses. It also brings a little of that frontier charm into play as well, don’t you think? We couldn’t build a wild horse bed and make it out of new, smooth timber, could we? What an odd match that would have been. The side rails have been constructed from newer material though, expertly aged and stained to blend in with the rest of your wood seamlessly. We needed to be sure that we were giving you the maximum bed strength possible — for many years of happy use — and think this was a compromise worth making.

    We knew that stallion bedroom furniture needed a touch of the wild west about it, which is why we also included hitching rings on the outer corners of the frame. Everything ties in, but nothing takes the theme too far.  But can we take a minute over the phenomenal headboard?

    A beautifully romantic depiction of a stallion and mare proudly standing side by side, the image has been crafted from hand-hammered copper. Skill of this level is not easy to find, but we have been blessed with a number of talented artisans that call Woodland Creek Furniture their home. When we started thinking about creating custom horse furniture, we knew we hand everybody we needed to bring our vision to life and they did not disappoint!

    The design has a flow and movement about it, with the rich color of the copper blending with the reclaimed barn wood beautifully. It’s not easy to overshadow aged timber from heritage American buildings, but the headboard manages it.

    Available in full, queen or eastern king size, there are plenty of options here, but we are always happy to discuss custom projects too. Get in touch if you have different dimensions to work with or a specific request for the horse design, as we always relish the chance to build on one of our existing designs, to create something unique and utterly personal for our clients. We’ll still ship for free*, even if we are making something out of the ordinary and you’ll get a year’s warranty too.

  • Contemporary Live Edge Wood Bed

    Modern Natural Bedroom Set

    Simplicity but make it special

    How do you bring together the idea of a truly understated and simple design, without letting it stray into the realms of basic, or even worse: unimaginative? By focusing on using exquisite materials and showcasing the talents of a carefully selected team of wood masters.

    Our modern natural bed is everything we hoped it would be an so much more. Of course, it’s an eminently comfortable and strong natural wood bed, but it also exudes a special kind of calm and serenity that we didn’t know a bed frame could. We can only assume that it’s the blend of materials that we have brought together, working some kind of magic.

    Modern Natural Bed

    Made for each other

    White oak and black walnut might sound like polar opposites, but wow do they work well together. Riffing off each other’s color palettes, they create a contrasting harmony that you just can’t force. The result is a natural modern bed that is also a rustic masterpiece, with the ebb and flow of the head and foot boards almost tipping the balance into live edge bed category.

    The walnut has been utilized for the frame, giving you strength and a definitive darker carcass where you want it the most and then in comes the oak, creating a focal point by simply existing in its unadulterated form. Marrying up to the walnut, thanks to the naturally darker outer edge, the oak merely seeks to tie the design together cohesively and brings the overall hue up to a lighter and more neutral shade. It’s an incredible symbiosis.

    Modern Natural Bed

    Made to order

    Unlike many of our competitors, we don’t claim to be a made-to-order workshop and then have hundreds of batch-built beds — freshly shipped in from overseas — ready to box and send. We genuinely make every bed for you. We are proud to be a domestic success story and as such, we ask that you spare us a little patience. We like to have around 12 weeks to complete your bed, especially if you choose a large size, just so that we don’t have to rush the process. You, in turn, get the bedroom furniture of your dreams, perfectly executed and with no corners cut or quality lost.

    You’ll be pleased to know that we offer this particular contemporary natural bed in three sizes: queen, king and Cali king. The design holds fast, regardless of the size selected, as it is so neutral. If, however, you have fallen desperately in love with this piece and need very specific, bespoke dimensions catered for, don’t think that your journey has to end here. Remember that we build to order, which means there is infinite scope for making you something one-off. You might actually be surprised how often we do exactly that.

    Shipped for free and with a full year’s warranty, the only thing you’ll need to think about — once you’ve placed your order — is treating yourself to some luxurious new bed linens. Lucky you!

  • Rustic Real Wood Sofas

    Rustic Real Wood Cushioned Sofa - Reclaimed Wood

    Simple but so stylish

    We know that the idea of an urban rustic sofa might be a little hard to imagine in reality but come with us now as we show you exactly how we made the design dream a solid wood reality!

    Our rustic real wood cushioned sofa isn’t the norm. We know that and are proud of it, because we happen to think that we have captured the very essence of what a rustic modern sofa should look like. With all the character of genuine reclaimed timber in place, the rustic side of things wasn’t the challenge, but balancing modern aesthetics? Now that took some time.

    Bringing two ideas together

     We don’t like to make things too easy for ourselves here at Woodland creek Furniture, so as well as combining seemingly at odds design aesthetics together, we also wanted to make this reclaimed wood sofa a truly transitional piece. Something that would work in a myriad of rooms, in any home. That’s why we gave specific and equal focus to the two contrasting elements.

    Rustic Real Wood Cushioned Sofa - Asian Walnut

    Creating a modern wood sofa is fairly simple. Linear frame lines, unfussy cushions and muted tones take care of almost everything and we’ve used these ideas here, but with rustic nuance. It’s shocking just how much character reclaimed timber can add to a design, but it is transformative, don’t you agree? Don’t get hung up on that rustic charm though we know you all like options to choose from!

    Building the sofa of your dreams

    We want to give you access to the absolutely perfect seat, so encourage you to choose from the following:

    Frame style – Select either rustic charm and character by choosing to have your frame built from reclaimed timber or go for something sleeker. We keep the shape and design the same, but build with Asian walnut, for an unmistakably contemporary finish.

    Cushion style – Gray or cream fabric cushions come with your new sofa as standard, but for a luxe option, you can upgrade to buttery soft brown leather. A deep cognac color, these really do add extra depth to the finished piece, especially if you are looking to furnish an upmarket cabin or similar. The cushions themselves are made from high-density memory foam and down feathers, to create the perfect blend of comfort, support and longevity.

    Regardless of your selection, we ask for around 16 weeks to complete your build. This is so that our master craftspeople can take their time and build your new favorite piece of furniture to unbelievable standards.

    When completed, we will ship your new modern rustic sofa to you, free of charge within the contiguous 48 states and with a full year’s warranty. As always, we are here to discuss any and all aspects of the ordering and building processes. Also, if you think you might like to use this design as the basis for a custom order, don’t hesitate to get in touch. We adore a challenge and the opportunity to exceed your expectations.

  • Entertain Rustic Style

    Cottage Entertainment Center
    Cottage Entertainment Center

    Let us entertain you

    If you’ve never given too much thought to your TV stand, that will all change after today. We can’t wait to introduce you to our cottage style sideboard that offers plenty of storage, stability and most importantly — style.

    A cottage style tv stand isn’t limited to being placed in an actual cottage, so let’s get that out of the way right now. We simply wanted to draw attention to the more traditional design elements that we’ve included here. A little rustic styling and some shabby chic paint have come together beautifully to create a new piece of furniture with that heritage look that works so well in older properties. That’s not to say that solid wood cottage furniture doesn’t work in modern homes too though. We actually love the contrast!

    The all-important details

     So, what makes our cottage entertainment center so special? To start with, there are no veneers. You’re looking at a totally solid wood unit, crafted from gorgeous mahogany. We know that you want longevity, strength and beautiful design and you don’t get that by cutting corners or skimping on the quality of materials being used.

    Cottage Entertainment Center wood top

    Breaking up the mahogany carcass, we have included glass-panel doors to the front, glass sides and two adjustable shelves. The shelves have been designed to account for your technology items, though what you actually house here is up to you.

    Make it your own

    Now, let’s talk about the finish! The cottage chic entertainment center shown was actually a custom design, built specifically to exacting client specifications. We thought it was a fantastic example of what we can do, so have used it as our product image, but you can customize your own however you like.

    Do you need a certain size? That’s no problem — we understand that every home has different nooks and crannies to account for. Think you might prefer a different color? That’s entirely your choice and we are happy to oblige. We can even negate the cottage style paint and finish your center with a solid coat of paint, free from distressing. We want this to be the last tv stand that you ever buy, so it needs to be perfect.

    However you choose to style your entertainment center, you will be getting the same level of craftsmanship, attention to detail and commitment to quality that we at Woodland Creek Furniture are known for. What’s more, because we build everything to order, you can be more involved with the furniture design process than ever before. It is worth noting that with custom designs, we ask you to indulge us with a little more time for completion.

    If you’re tired of standing your television on the nearest surface and are desperate to organize all of your accompanying technology, such as home cinema systems and DVD players, this is the entertainment center for you. Stylish, easy to personalize and as sturdy as you’d hope, this is a piece that will transform your living room and up your design credentials all in one.

  • Rooting out your new design aesthetic

    Modern Root Console Table

    You might think that you’ve seen some pretty bold furniture designs in your time, but today, we are going to introduce you to something wild. You probably never knew that you needed a truly show-stopping console table, but you’re about to realize that they are your new obsession!

    A modern root console table. How little these words actually convey about the sheer masterclass in elegant contemporary design that our creation embodies. As you can probably tell, we are exceptionally proud of this design and why wouldn’t we be? We wanted to come up with something new and original in terms of a metal and wood console table and with our expert team always on the lookout for unusually striking pieces of timber, an idea was born.

    A contemporary wood console table might sound like a simple concept and in theory it is, but as soon as we had the beginnings of an idea forming, we knew we needed to tread carefully. Maintaining a balance between unusual and chic, not to mention modern and organic, wouldn’t be easy, but it was doable, especially when we started with the most understated frame possible.

    You’ll see here a linear metal frame. Crafted from hand forged thick, sturdy metal, it is anything but basic. Built for purpose and to last, it resonates strength and a definitively masculine vibe, which we have countered with the very symbol of life itself – a gorgeous organic root section. Using a teak root allows for the most beautiful undulations on color and markings, while also guaranteeing that every table be unique. After all, if you are buying a solid teak console table, the last thing you want is to see another exactly the same!

    Available in five sizes as standard, we are more than happy to discuss personal preferences in terms of dimensions, finishing touches and even overall design.  For example, if you are craving a rustic modern console table and this one is almost ideal, but you’d love a live edge table top added, we can do that! Similarly, if you want to retain the most natural theme possible, how does a wooden frame sound, in place of the metal? Nothing is too much trouble for our customers, so please don’t assume that you are limited to requesting a custom size! You can also ask to see a selection of root sections, if you’d like to be more involved in the design process. This is your table and it is destined to live in your home forever, so it has to be exactly as you want it!

    Due to the unusual nature of this design, we ask your indulgence of a generous production time. This will allow us to source the most beautiful root section possible and in return, we ship your new favorite piece of furniture for free (within the contiguous 48 states) and also supply it with a full year’s warranty in place.

    So what are you waiting for?  Your amazing new console table awaits!

  • Rustic & Modern Coffee Tables

    Metal Block Cocktail Table
    Metal Block Cocktail Table

     

    Have you ever seen a piece of furniture that made you feel instantly calmer and more at one within the wider space? Well you’re about to, because our Metal Block Coffee Table has been designed with simplicity and style intertwined and the result is spectacular.

    Urban rustic coffee table designs might sound at odds with themselves, with apparently contradictory styles being meshed together, but when done well, the resulting furniture can be a masterpiece. We like to think that you’ll see exactly what we mean here, with sleek, tactile hammered metal meeting robust reclaimed wood and simply coexisting on a whole other level. As coffee tables go, we think this is one that manages to create a definite aesthetic, while never losing sight of the individual influences or, ultimately, the necessary functionality being catered for. We don’t use the word perfect lightly, but you can’t deny that this is a flawless concept!

    When creating this wood block coffee table, we started with an idea of bringing together reclaimed wood and bronze-copper metal, but not in a way seen before. We didn’t want to simply give in to lavish effects and instead, relished the challenge of marrying the two in an understated way. That’s why you won’t see a glitzy polished top here, or fancy turned legs. Instead, we’ve chosen a modern rustic coffee table interpretation that has definite zen influence, and which could integrate into any home with ease, thanks to the transitional nature of the overall effect.

    Just take a look at the legs here. Offset to create visual interest, while also offering maximum support to the thick and stoic top. Crafted from reclaimed timber, each pillar carries not only the weight of the table, but also decades of American history, thanks to the antique wood. Don’t overlook that incredible top though, with a hand hammered finished that takes our master craftspeople hours to perfect. Interesting enough to be the centerpiece in any room, but still smooth and functional, the copper intersects with our specifically selected reclaimed timber with ease, to create a shockingly cohesive aesthetic that would look equally as stunning in a modern urban home as a rural cabin.

    Offered in two stock sizes, with lengths of either 48 or 60 inches, our block coffee table is, like all of our pieces, built to order and, just like most of our larger items, is also shipped for free within the contiguous 48 states. We are also delighted to be able to offer a custom service.

    If you love the style and vibe of our modern rustic table here, but you need a very specific set of dimensions to be accounted for, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. Our stock sizes should be seen as a simple jumping off point only, as we can and regularly do cater for bespoke proportions. Everything can be adapted, including the height of this design, so don’t be afraid to start a conversation about how we can take our perfectly beautiful table and ensure that it is made to measure your home.

    What modern storage dreams are made of

    Live Edge Dresser

    If we asked you to picture a modern dresser or contemporary sideboard that featured organic wood in a prominent position, what would come to mind? Something with sleek, integrated drawer pulls, smooth lines and a barely-there metal base frame? Well that’s what we imagined and after some intense design meetings, brought into being!

    We wanted to make a modern rustic dresser that would combine our two main loves – natural wood and innovation. We chose to focus our energies here on using hardwood drawer fronts that allowed for seamless grain flow to balance out the overarching contemporary themes with some natural warmth and we think you’ll agree that the effect is incredible. We didn’t skimp on the functionality either though! Let’s not forget that this is rustic contemporary storage, not just an aesthetic addition.

    Modern storage drawers are what make this sideboard so incredible and we give you 9 to play with. Because let’s face it, more is always better when talking about storage for busy homes. Every drawer is supported by a heavy-duty full extension set of glides, to make operating easy, seamless and most importantly, reliable.

    Your storage, your way

     Let’s say that you love the design aesthetic of this dresser, but you need something that isn’t just shy of 71” wide. Or maybe the size is perfect, but you really want to add some decorative drawer front inlays. Is it possible? Of course it is! We may offer click-to-order pieces of furniture, but you are most welcome to simply see them as a helpful jumping off point! Essentially, if you can picture it, we can make it a reality and we always relish a custom challenge. This design would lend itself perfectly to less drawers of a larger size, bigger or smaller overall dimensions and a plethora of extra detailing. The only way to find out what we can do for you is to get in touch and start a conversation. From there, we can advise about cost and expected delivery times.

    Added benefits

    When you buy a stunning dresser from us, you will get free shipping, within the 48 contiguous states, as a thank you for your custom. You’ll also get to enjoy the feeling of having supported a domestic family business. All of our designs are imagined and realized right here in the USA, with none of our production being outsourced. We employ artisans that are at the top of their game and deeply committed to sustainable practices, traditional carpentry and drawing out the best from every piece of material they work with. The results speak for themselves, with customers raving about the craftsmanship of our items and visitors to our showroom always being blown away by what we can make.

    Black Granite 9 Drawer Dresser

  • Rustic Wood Bunk Beds

    Bunk beds, but with a difference

    Live Edge Walnut Bunk Bed

    You probably don’t think of live edge designed wood furniture and bunk beds as being in the same spheres, but once you see our take on the classic double sleeping solution, we don’t think you’ll ever look back. Gone are the days of cheap pine, basic construction and laughably flimsy ladders, as now, you can extend your phenomenal taste and desire for high quality furniture to your choice of bunk beds. Just come and take a look at our live edge walnut design if you don’t believe us!

    Firstly, can anyone say wow? Not only are our solid wood bunk bed designs built to last, being supplied with a full year’s warranty, our live edge walnut bunk bed is also staggeringly beautiful because we don’t think that a child’s or spare room needs to be given less consideration than a master suite!

    We know that a black walnut bunk bed sounds like a luxury and you know what? It is! It’s also a practical choice, if you want your investment to stand the test of time and never date. By opting for a seemingly understated and simple design, we have been able to allow the unique nature of every black walnut slab employed to take charge. The headers and footers, each boasting a spectacular live edge, ensure that no two bunk beds will ever be identical, while also appealing to sleepers of all ages. That’s why they are just as well suited to a guest suite as a child’s room. That’s also why we over this beautiful design as a twin over twin or a full over full.

    In terms of unforgettable bedroom furniture, rustic wood bunk bed designs are up there with the most sought-after pieces, especially for lodge or cabin settings, but can’t you picture this lovely solution in a modern home just as well? We see so much potential, from a pared back bright bedroom through to a woodland themed nursery, we don’t think there is any space that wouldn’t gladly accept such a timeless and organic design.

    We didn’t want to detract from the wood being used here, so opted for a subtle integrated ladder and unfussy side rail style for the top bunk. We were also cognizant of the fact that you might need to access some extra bedroom storage space, so kept the bottom bunk suitably high off the ground to allow you to slide storage boxes underneath.

    Live Edge Walnut Bunk Bed

    Designed and made in our USA workshop, we ask for up to 12 weeks from the point of ordering to complete, as we build specifically for you. This gives you an opportunity to get in touch and make any specific requests and don’t be shy! You might not see any dropdown menus for custom choices here, but we are ALWAYS happy to discuss specific needs and its very rare that we can’t devise a wonderful solution. Seriously, if you’re loving this design but, for example, want something carved into the headboards, just ask. Nothing is too much trouble.

  • Solid Wood Platform Beds

    Live Edge Slab King Platform Bed
    Live Edge Slab King Platform Bed

    Don’t sleep on the details!

    Focal point beds are a risky business. So many companies seem to think that designs need to be bigger, brasher and just more dazzling than ever before in order to be a worthy centerpiece, but here at Woodland Creek Furniture, we take a different tack. We believe that something as seemingly simple as a live edge platform bed can be an absolute show stopper, if made from the right materials and crafted perfectly, which is exactly why we made our live edge slab king platform design.

    A rustic modern platform bed. That sounds like something of an anomaly but trust us when we say that it can be done! When we decided to create this stunning bedroom masterpiece, we started with the idea of a solid wood platform bed. From there we started to tweak the design, in order to add in a more rustic vibe, while not losing the overarching simplicity and chic style. The result is an offering that guarantees you, the customer, a totally unique bed, regardless of how many we ever sell, all thanks to the inclusion of a live edge slab headboard.

    Our artisans take asymmetrical slabs of beautiful black walnut and painstakingly join them together, to make a one-off headboard. At the same time, a coordinating walnut platform is also constructed, to guarantee color synchronicity. While the size of this bed and the main material used is already decided, we do offer some additional choices that will let you make this bed your own.

    Burl wood – If you prefer, you can select the lighter in tone burl wood for your headboard. Made in the same way, with a live edge finish, it simply adds in a bright contrast for the walnut platform to work against, creating an eye-catching palette. As a leader in solid wood furniture creation, we have an enviable stock of exquisite burl wood slabs, each one having been selected for its unique tones and beauty. It would be our pleasure to use them for your next purchase.

    Integrated side drawers - With a bed as stunning as this one, finding the right nightstands could be tricky, which is why we eliminate the issue altogether. Instead of freestanding mismatched tables, why not let us build integrated drawers into your headboard for you? You’ll love the symmetry, which will amplify the organic flow of your headboard more prominently, and the practicality is undeniable.

  • Rustic Live Edge Bedroom Furniture

    Live Edge Black Walnut Canopy Bed

    Bedroom furniture with an edge

    Live edge furniture has been at the forefront of popular design for some time now, but rather than letting it come and go, as most trends do, we want to preserve its place in home decorating. With this in mind, we have put our thinking caps on and set out to design a striking solid wood canopy bed that not only enjoys a live edge feature, but also looks chic, contemporary and romantic and by George. We think we’ve done it!

    Our live edge black walnut canopy bed is a masterclass in understated yet impactful elegance. It has all the hallmarks of an unforgettable master suite focal point, with a bold solid wood frame, canopy structure and simple lines, but add in the dramatic live edge slab header and footer and suddenly, you have something that belongs on a museum, as well as your bedroom!

    We have long been fans of the notion that art can be functional as well as aesthetically pleasing and that’s exactly what this bed is. Yes, we could have added more details, extra trim options or even glitzy embellishments, but why bother, when black walnut is such an organically beautiful timber that can stand alone?

    What we really love about this walnut canopy bed is the versatility that it offers. If you want to add under-bed storage drawers, you can. There is plenty of space. If you want to change your bedroom color scheme, all you need to do is swap out your canopy fabric for something complementary and if you want to go all-out minimalist, simply negate the canopy drape altogether.

    Because our live edge canopy bed is so timeless, we felt there was only one element to offer as a customization option and that’s the size. From twin to California king, there is a proportionally ideal selection for everyone and we keep the rest as natural as possible.

    A hand-applied clear finish is the only thing we add, in order to let Mother Nature’s work speak for itself. Our master craftspeople let the timber lead the design, with the natural ebb and flow of the live edge taking the spotlight. Though the frame has been to exacting standards, with stability and longevity in mind, there is nothing to detract from the focal point, which is, of course, those live edge slabs.

    Designed, made and shipped in the USA, we couldn’t be prouder of this testament to all things organic and romantic. Indeed, we firmly believe that our modern rustic canopy bed is indicative of our innate respect for the natural world and sustainable practices. We cherish the stunning materials that nature provides and seek only to use them in ways befitting their majesty.

    Shipped for free within the appropriate 48 states and supplied with a full year’s warranty, we know that you’ll be blown away by the quality and beauty of this canopy bed, but don’t just take our word for it. Place your order today and see for yourself!
