  • It’s Hip to be Square

    link to the square coffee table Contemporary Square Wood Coffee Table
    ling to contemporary square coffee table Contemporary Square Wood Coffee Table

    A contemporary square wood coffee table might not be the newest concept in the world, but ours has a secret. Are you ready to hear what it is? It’s amazing storage capacity that opens in a unique and beautiful way. Come with us as we show you more.

    Room for Contemporary Square Coffee Table

    There is always room for a modern square coffee table, even in traditionally rustic homes. However, we wanted to alter the landscape a little and add plenty of storage, a delicate base and fabulous functionality as well. After all, it doesn’t take inordinate amounts of skill to simply place a square top on a solid base. On the other hand, making something that has flow, character and hidden potential is a whole other ballgame. We tagged ourselves in as the QB here!

    We started by thinking about the best wood to use. It did not take long before we knew that an Asian walnut coffee table is hard to beat. Then we paired it with the deepest ebony, for a geometric design that alludes to the hidden surprise; four drawers that open out to reveal individual storage segments! From the top, you’d never guess that all of these drawers were in place. However, they are so perfectly proportioned and handy. Depending on the size of your family, it would be excellent to give everybody their own drawer, to prevent clutter in the living room, or simply use them for space-appropriate items that are easily lost, such as remote controls, listing magazines and coasters.

    An Surprising Look

    You would be absolutely forgiven for looking at this urban contemporary coffee table and just assuming that it is pretty but not much else. However, how little would you actually know! There’s such a zen ambience about the design itself. So much so, that the smooth drawer glides act as an extension of that languid functionality and amplify how chic and understated this piece of furniture is. We can clearly picture it sitting in the middle of a relaxing space, maybe with a lucky bamboo plant on top, just stealing the show. We are particularly proud of the slim linear base as well, as it requires less floor space than a solid design, making it suitable for even a small living room.

    Available in two standard sizes, our modern rustic coffee table can be personalized and customized at your request. Perhaps you’d like to choose a different wood or an alternative finish? Or maybe you love everything about the table already, but the size needs to be slightly different for your home? We would love to see how we can accommodate your needs. 

    We ask for between 14-16 weeks to complete the build of your new coffee table. As it is a relatively complex and involved design that we prefer not to try and rush. Perfection is the name of the game here, but we thank you for your patience by offering free shipping within the contiguous 48 states. 

    Designed, made and shipped from the United States, we think this is the final word in domestic pride and hope you agree.

  • Turning Table Design On Its Head

    When is a coffee table not a coffee table? When it’s made of stunning reclaimed roof beams and is a testament to rustic character!

    Wood Beam Coffee Table

    Our wood beam coffee table is a little out of the ordinary, but we like to think that we’ve tempered our creativity just enough to make it a universally appealing design that would work in any home. And we do mean any home. The only snag is that you’ll all want one, but we only make a few every year. Let us tell you why!

    Wood Beam Coffee Table

    Yes, this is a solid barn wood coffee table and we are fortunate enough to have secured a steady supply of genuine reclaimed timber, but locating authentic beams, in good enough condition to repurpose? That’s a whole other issue. Essentially, these tables are all absolutely one of a kind, cannot be replicated exactly and are dependent on suitable materials. Didn't this gorgeous design just get all the more covetable? 

    A reclaimed barn wood beam coffee table. You don’t see them often, but when you do; WOW. The beams themselves are so thick that the table top is incredibly sturdy and heavy, weighing in the region of 500lbs. These tables are not going to break or crumble, so we highly recommend buying one that you can pass down to future generations, but be aware that the timber itself is full of character.

    Genuine barn wood, the kind that we source for our furniture designs, come with at least 100 years of history carved, etched and gnarled into its surface. You’ll find insect marks, knots and patina and while we finish everything by hand to ensure perfect touchability, the look remains decidedly rustic and old. What else would you expect from a barn wood coffee table that will still be standing in decades to come? You will be able to leave your own mark too, through loving use and natural wear.

    We ask that you are flexible in regards to your size choices. Though we do offer five dimensions, the beams are not cut to width, owing to their antique status, so there will be some fluctuations. We will always let you know the exact size that we can offer, but the height will be set in stone. However tall you want your barn beam coffee table, that’s what we will supply.

    The final finishing touch is the use of aesthetically appropriate metal trims. It would have been easy to slip into the realms of novelty adornments, but instead, we let the wood guide us, adding only straps where needed and keeping them simple, functional and understated. The result is a coffee table that we know you can house in any style of home, with rustic cabins welcoming it into the fold like an old friend and contemporary dwellings enjoying the dose of nostalgia and  contrast.

    As this is a heavy piece of furniture, please ensure that you have adequate support in place on the day of your free delivery.

Well, we have designed a spectacular table that frankly, will have you questioning how you’ve gone so long without it. What’s more, it’s like nothing you’ve ever seen before!

    Modern Dining Tables with Style

    We weren’t playing around when we sat down to design The Mountain Modern collection Tree of Life base dining table.

  • A Table for Making Memories

    link to the Hardwood Dining Table XX Hardwood Modern Dining Table

    It’s said that the right dining table not only makes your space come together. On the other hand, it is a haven for shared memories and connection. We took both of these elements into account when designing our xx hardwood modern dining table and the results really speak for themselves.

    When trying to balance the individual components for our modern rustic dining table, we knew we had to tread a careful line. Though the rustic ethos needed to be clear, it couldn't be so overbearing that it made harmony impossible. That’s why we decided to separate the two elements entirely, giving them their own breathing space.  Before, coming together as an overall whole. The Result is a contemporary xx base with a timeless rustic top. The perfect partnership!

    So many options

    link to the XX Hardwood Modern Dining Table XX Hardwood Modern Dining Table

    Choice is essential, especially when trying to appeal to plenty of people. Which is why we included plenty of customizable elements with this seemingly simple contemporary rustic dining table. 

    First, the length and width is up for discussion. We offer six standard sizes, but you are more than welcome to get in touch to discuss something more unusual. A dining table is not a throw away item, so it needs to be right. With size determined, we can move onto the wood type. Here, there are five choices for your top, each of which is gorgeous in its own right and will work with any of the base finishes. The style you choose will simply be a reflection of your wider decorating choices.

    Do you like the look of a chamfered edge? Maybe you’re more of a flat edge fan or even a live edge fanatic? Whatever your preference, we can make it a reality, regardless of the type of wood you choose. Then the fun really begins! We have a range of nine gorgeous finishes, ranging from cool weathered grey through to rick, deep Jacobean! So, how do you want your tabletop to look? Of course, you are most welcome to keep it natural, as we can apply a clear protection. However, we wanted to make sure you have ample opportunity to design your picture perfect dining table. 

    Finally, we ask you to choose your base. The classic xx design works well in any format. So, will you opt for deep ebony steel, polished stainless steel or brushed stainless finished in gold? The answer is entirely in your hands, as only you know how you want to translate the idea of an urban modern dining table into a reality that has a rustic undercurrent. There are no wrong answers or configurations that won't work together, so go wild!

    Shipping made Easy!

    A solid wood contemporary dining table is a big investment, we understand that, which is why we offer free shipping, a full year’s warranty and an easy to understand financing option through Bread. We think that you shouldn't be bogged down with logistics or unnecessary financial burdens. So we have simply negated them for you!

  • A Splash of Modernity for the Bathroom

    Modern Rustic Vanity

    A little bit of old world charm goes a long way. However, what if you love rustic design but have a fairly modern home? You can bring the two together, if you choose a handsome hybrid such as our modern rustic vanity.

    Modern Organic Looks

    We could talk all day long about the organic beauty and inherent charm of rustic furniture. However, the simple fact is that not everybody wants a raw tree root in their contemporary homes. We get that, but we also know that when tempered with some up to date aesthetics, a rustic vibe can add so much to even a super pared back room, such as a bathroom. That’s why this grey wash vanity is such a firm favorite of ours.

    Picture if you will, a modern bathroom. White metro tiles on the walls, a sleek shower enclosure and suite pieces that look almost space age in their styling. Now imagine adding in a contrasting vanity unit that balances the space and prevents it from feeling too sterile. It’s perfect isn’t it? What a way to harmonize without compromise! We happen to think that this refined rustic vanity would be the perfect addition to even the more stark and contemporary of rooms.

    Reclaimed Sturdy Creation

    So how have we created this blended beauty? First, when building a reclaimed contemporary vanity unit, you need to actually use authentic barn wood, which we have. The doors are made from beautiful reclaimed timber. Which we have lovingly and delicately finished in a soft grey, for that neutral and modern feel. Next, we kept the frame simple. No unnecessary trump or additions here, we just let the materials do all of the talking. Finally, finished everything off with smooth handles that will mirror any fresh metal trims in your bathroom. Clever, right? So understated, our modern reclaimed wood vanity is the ideal addition to literally any home, in any location, because it is so balanced.

    Put this unit in a lodge or cabin and the rustic wood will step forward and integrate. Place it in a chic New York apartment and the linear lines and clean finish will resonate. Drawers plus a sizable cupboard mean that you will be able to enjoy a clutter-free space and we give you the option of readying your unit for your sink on either side. Because why would we know where your sink would look best? 

    Easily Shipped for FREE!

    Naturally, we ship your vanity for free, within the contiguous 48 states, as is the Woodland Creek way and we are always easy to get in touch with, should you want us to design any other complementary pieces, or build to custom dimensions. If you need any further convincing, we invite you to take a look at our reviews. A verified buyer of this exact vanity commented that: “I'm so thankful I found Woodland Creek Furniture. The sales person was exemplary, such a pleasure to work with. I ordered two handcrafted barn wood vanities with mirrors to match. The craftsmanship was incredible, way beyond any expectation I had.”

    We think reviews like this say so much more than we ever could and would love for you to have a reason to leave one too.

  • Rustic Styling for Refined Tastes

    Say the word rustic and some people might mistake it for old or tatty. In reality, when rustic styling is used well and by the appropriate artisans, it creates a unique version of antique furniture that looks at place in any setting and adds a quiet organic charm that nothing else can compete with. Come and take a look at our refined rustic vanity cabinetry and you’ll see what we mean.

    Refined Rustic Vanity Cabinetry

    The first thing you’ll notice here is that this is a solid wood open vanity design. What that means is that there’s nowhere to hide. Poor workmanship or sloppy finishes will be instantly apparent, but we never let anything sub-par leave our workshop, so were not afraid to tackle this kind of bold style. All eyes are going to be on a rustic elegant vanity such as this one, so we have spared no time or effort when considering every last detail. From the rough sawn wood of the carcass to the use of sophisticated corbels and even the metal work; no stone has been left unturned in the creation of this piece. 

    Naturally, we could have used perfectly attractive metal pulls that were readily available, but that wouldn’t befit an elegant open wood vanity like this one, so we invested in hand forged metal accents. It’s just one of the ways that we seek to support other domestic interests, by keeping demanded for traditional skills and artistry alive. When you buy from us, you are doing the same, by supporting our team of handpicked master craftspeople that make creating with wood their entire lives.

    We decided to choose a three drawer design for this refined wood vanity, in a bid to maximize practicality but also symmetry. The middle drawer has been cleverly adapted to make way for your plumbing and we’ve even thought about your linens. In any bathroom, you simply cannot have enough useful storage, especially for all the bulky linens or gorgeous decorative items that you amass. Here, we included a low shelf for just these items, keeping everything tucked out of the way but still perfectly to hand, whenever you need them. 

    If you’re looking at our vanity unit and thinking that it’s exactly what you’ve been looking for but not the right size, don’t count us out. We offer four standard size options, but are always ready to discuss a totally bespoke build. We will even help you decide what size would work best in your space, if you send us some dimensions and/or pictures.

    We might try to take all of the heavy lifting off your shoulders, in terms of designing timeless furniture pieces that you’ll love in your home, but that doesn’t mean that anything we offer is ‘ordinary’ and that goes double for our customer service. We want you to be delighted and looking forward to visiting us again for your next revamp, so while free shipping and generous warranties are usually offered as standard, why not give us a chance to turn our breathtaking designs into a one-off, just for you?

  • 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.

  • Modern Natural Bed

    Link to the Modern natural 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. However, 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.

    Link to modern natural wood bed 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. 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. As such, we ask that you spare us a little patience. Generally, 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

    link to a rustic real wood sofa Rustic Real Wood Cushioned Sofa - Reclaimed Wood

    Simple but so stylish

    We know that the idea of an urban rustic real wood sofas might be a little hard to imagine in reality. However, 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.

    link to rustic real wood sofas 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 rustic real wood sofas 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.
