  • It’s Hip to be Square

    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! A reclaimed wood coffee table will be a glorious addition to your home! 

    Rustic Wood Coffee Table for an Extraordinary Home

    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!

    link to the wood beam coffee table 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! However, 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! However, be aware that the timber itself is full of character.

    Genuine Reclaimed Wood!

    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! Although, 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. 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.

  • A Modern Dining Table Like No Other

    To some extent, modern dining tables are all at least similar. They have bases and tops, so what could really separate one from the next, right? 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. We wanted to come up with something so unique that it would be impossible to stop staring at it. While, also wondering about the construction and finally, where it could be bought from. We think we managed beautifully!

    The Tree of Life dining table is unlike anything else we’ve ever created. So organic, tactile and stunning from the top, then enigmatic and bold underneath. It opens up a dialogue in any room and we love being part of the conversation. It might actually be the boldest contemporary dining table that we currently offer; just because, at no point does it seek to pull back from the brink of unusual. Instead, it rides that line and dares you to get closer.

    We wanted to maximize the impact this table could make. Which is why we offer it in sizes ranging from 66-120 inches long. It’s a design that can take you from family home to conference room and back again; and, you can add extra oomph through your choice of width as well.

We can make this to your bespoke dimensions easily; and, we still offer you the choice of planked, book-matched or separated book-matched glass inlay black walnut. Of course, that won’t help you with your choice of base.

    Materials that Exude Greatness!

    Black walnut is a wood that exudes a natural richness and warmth, meaning that it can be paired with any base and it will look amazing. With that in mind you can select your modern Tree of Life dining table base in either polished stainless steel, matte black steel or polished gold stainless steel.

  • A Table for Making Memories

    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

    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.

    An edge for what you need

    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

    a Modern Rustic Vanity 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 Rustic Vanity for 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 Design for your Bathroom!

    The first thing you’ll notice here is that this is a natural wood open vanity design. What that means is that there’s nowhere to hide. Poor workmanship or sloppy finishes will be instantly apparent! However, 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! However, 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! You will be 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. 

    Sizes for what You Need!

    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! However, we are always ready to discuss a totally bespoke build. Our reps can 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! However, 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?
