  • It's an exciting time for modern rustic design!

    It's an exciting time for modern rustic design!

    From organic rustic console tables to live edge tables -- these are the trends driving modern rustic design forward.

    While rustic design is engineered to stay true to its minimalist natural filled roots, many have explored new ways to bring fresh life to the aesthetic.

  • Soft Modern Furniture

    What an unusual term to describe a style of furniture “soft modern furniture” - it is almost an oxymoron. The term never entered my vocabulary until one Saturday afternoon when a customer walked into our retail store and engaged one of the sales staff. This customer stated she had found us online, and after perusing our web site was excited to see we had a nice selection of soft modern furniture.

    I immediately looked up and starting asking the customer questions as to which designs she liked. I wanted which designs she felt fell into the “soft modern furniture” category. After she had left, I took pause and reflected on her thoughts. I agreed. Indeed some of our designs were modern, but the use of reclaimed woods and natural woods did give them a “softer” more “earthy” feel. Just five years ago no one would have thought of combining linear furniture designs containing polished or brushed stainless steel with textured, distressed salvaged woods. Well, now this décor and style of furniture is popular, and this style of decorating does not appear to be a fad. I personally think soft modern furniture is a category here to stay.

    Why do I feel soft modern furniture is here to stay? Well, the world continues to become fast paced; all cities have major traffic issues; the news both domestic and international is a constant stream of negativity and most products are mass produced and made with mostly synthetic materials (i.e., plastics, resins, etc.). Or society is basically on steroids and growing at a rapid pace. Everybody is working longer hours in order to get ahead or just stay above water. When our clients come home, they want their homes to be a refuge from this synthetic, fast paced, tumultuous society. The use of reclaimed woods with history, texture, and character offer solace and provide a unique warmth even when used in modern furniture design. The linear modernistic style of the furniture contributes with its neat and orderly essence. The combination is a breath of fresh air in the design industry.

    Now let’s take this look one step further. Let’s mix in some mid-century modern furnishings with soft modern, and you have what I personally coined “Michigan Modern Furniture”. I am speaking personally, but seeing furniture designs from the 60’s and 70’s come back in style and pairing it with the aforementioned new soft modern furniture designs is a look that resonates with Michiganders and now across the country. Maybe this attraction partly comes from nostalgia and a sentimental yearning for the happiness of being a kid with no responsibilities – whatever the reason for the positive vibe, it works. Woodland Creek Furniture and our sister store, Woodland Creek Modern, display a nice variety of soft modern furniture and mid-century modern furniture. Most designs are available made in custom sizes and layouts. Because we make most of our own designs, “custom” does not mean expensive. You are dealing factory direct and we offer very fair pricing for quality furniture. Our stores are open seven days a week. If you live out of state, we have live customer service sales staff helping with questions and quotes seven days a week. We ship throughout the U.S. and Canada. Call us today to discuss your project.

  • How to Compliment Your Rustic Bar for the Ultimate Man Cave

    After a long day or week at work, you need a space where you can relax, enjoy a few beers and catch up on the latest game. Luckily, creating a comfortable zone for you and your friends doesn’t require too much creativity or effort. One simple way to add a little extra luxury to your man cave is to install a customized rustic bar. A customized bar can easily be the focal point of any man cave without looking like you tried too hard.

    It doesn’t get any manlier than a custom bar made from natural wood with log accents or one handcrafted from reclaimed barn wood.

    Another advantage of installing a rustic bar is that the more they get used the better they look.  It is really hard for your clumsy buddies to damage a top made from distressed barnwood or a solid slab of wood top.  The barnwood already has 100 years of character so a little more will only enhance the look.  A thick slab top can take years and years of abuse and then be re-sanded only to look as good as the day it was originally installed.  Just choose a style that fits your personality and provides all of the storage you need to keep a few cold drinks handy.  After you’ve decided on the type of bar that will fit perfectly into your new haven, there are a few extra things you can do to ramp up the manliness.

    Get the right furniture: Depending on the type and size of bar you choose, look for rustic furniture that is similar in size and style to keep your room looking pulled together.

    The ultimate man cave needs a good couch and recliner. You can coordinate the bar with matching log or barn wood sofas, chairs or recliners.

    Leather or suede is comfortable, manly and looks great with darker colors and rustic pieces. Because this space will be (hopefully) kid free, you should be able to splurge on a pricier piece, which may be necessary if you are looking for high quality leather or suede furniture. To ensure that you’re getting a good quality piece look for an aniline piece, which means the stain permeates the entire piece of leather and not just the surface.

    You should also look closely at the stitching on your furniture and avoid pieces with frayed stitching; and last but not least, sit on the couch or chair you’re interested in. Move around in it. Plop down into it like you would at the end of a long day. Listen for any squeaking and move around to feel any unpadded areas of the furniture. Comfort is at least as important as style, so make sure you select a piece that’s comfortable and attractive.

    Choose the right colors: Luckily rustic wood bars go with pretty much anything, but if you want a more subtle place to relax, you should look for a mix of dark and light colors to compliment the tones in the wood of your bar. Colors that typically work well with rustic pieces include burgundy, browns, creams and dark reds. If you’re feeling a little brave you could even try a burnt orange on the walls.

    Accent your man cave with personal touches: Throw pillows aren’t really a man-thing, but that could change if you choose a cool pillow like the Man Cave Beer Coozie Pillow. This awesome pillow can be customized for your personal space and doubles as a beer holder. Forget about coasters, this cozy pillow can sit next to you on the couch. There’s space for two drinks, so you can share with someone or just hold an extra drink for yourself.  Don’t forget to add photos, sports memorabilia and other personal touches to make the space feel more like your own. And to round out the perfect man cave, don’t forget the pool table and/or big screen TV! So sit back, relax, and enjoy a cold beer in your personalized rustic man cave.

  • Add Reclaimed Wood Furniture to Your Rustic Interior Design

    Reclaimed wood furniture is growing in popularity around the country when it comes to home decor. The reclaimed wood that is used in the production of furniture is sometimes not what it claims to be, however. Many competitors are offering furniture that has a reclaimed wood look to it but comes from fresh cuts of lumber. The authenticity, durability, and history of the wood are all compromised! Actual reclaimed wood furniture uses wood found from sources such as old barns, factories, and warehouses that were built at least 100 years ago, meaning they have the age, character, and meaning all buried deep within the timber. For anyone who is avid about their history and their furniture, these are all very important features!

    The reclaimed wood furniture style is growing in popularity for several reasons:

    • It looks and feels great and unique
    • The rich history and tradition that are behind each piece of furniture
    • They reuse resources, instead of requiring more trees to be cut for wood
    • The physical characteristics of the wood are marked by higher quality and sustainability

    Why, you may ask, is it better to reuse the wood, especially if it is so old as it is? Well, the answer again lies in our history. The wood that was used over a century ago by the nation’s agricultural pioneers was harvested in a time when air pollution from the industrial age did not stunt the growth or quality character of new trees. The wood is stronger, healthier, and last much longer than the wood that is harvested from trees that are bred and cut down in the modern age for mass producing furniture.

    The reclaimed wood furniture that we use at Woodland Creek Furniture is sourced from barns and other locations around the states of Illinois, Indiana, and Michigan. We use wood that is at least 100 years old and filled with history and character, before implementing our unique process to craft and reclaim it into new and elegant pieces of reclaimed wood furniture. We would love for you to take a look through our wide variety of pieces either online, or in one of our two massive showrooms.
