Rustic Furniture

  • Barnwood Furniture is the Ultimate Rustic Touch

    Growing up in a road tripping family might have afforded you a few chance visual encounters with some of those barnyards that pattern our Great Plains and our old American art and cultural items. Barnyards of the older generations have a mystical quality to them, reminding us of the strong agricultural tradition that carried our great nation into prosperity and helped nurture it when going through the more difficult times. While many barnyards have since fallen into obsolescence as technology has altered the face of the farmlands, they still stand as cultural beacons. Woodland Creek Furniture takes these traditional items and helps breathe new life into them with our lineup of barnwood furniture items. With our finely crafted and uniquely designed pieces, we offer our valued customers the chance to own a piece of Americana that will fit elegantly into their home.

    What better way to cherish the American spirit of agriculture and stylistically decorate your home than with an actual piece of that tradition? Our barnwood furniture collection exclusively uses barnwood to create a fresh, unique look to your home decor. Our barnwood furniture collection includes the following items:

    • Barnwood bedroom sets
    • Barnwood dining tables
    • Barnwood coffee tables

  • Home Styling with Antique Barnwood Furniture

    Antique barnwood furniture is one of the most popular rustic furniture products we offer, which comes as no surprise considering its unique blend of rustic and elegant characteristics. Aside from looking amazing, our reclaimed barnwood has more features to it than meets the eye.

    We source all of our barnwood from barns in the states of Illinois, Indiana, and Michigan. All of the reclaimed barn wood we use in our furniture is at least 100 years old, which says a lot about the quality of the wood to begin with. Wood that was harvested from that time is just not the same as the quality of the wood you will find in new pieces of furniture, or our competitors’ barnwood furniture.  The wood’s age is important as only the slow process of weathering gives it the desired antique patina.  Many of our competitors are taking fresh wood or 30-50 year old barn wood and trying to enhance it through distressing and burning techniques.  It simply does not and will not have the same look or feel as naturally aged barnwood subjected to four season of slow weathering over ten decades.

    Our reclaimed wood is an eco-friendly and good for the environment as we are saving trees and our landfills.

    Our barnwood furniture might be the easiest furniture to maintain.  The more use it gets the better it looks. Should you ever get a fresh scratch or gouge, you can use a special tinted wax and in just minutes watch it disappear.  You will not be able to tell what a farmer did 80-100 years ago versus what your kids did yesterday.  Scratches only make the furniture look better. 

    With this higher level of quality, you also get the added benefit of a strong history behind your antique barnwood furniture.  America’s farmland history has an admirable tale full of heroes, innovators, and hard workers. The American farmer has always been the back bone of the United States. While the nation was coming of age and finding its way, the agricultural industry found in it a group of determined individuals who had the discipline and craftiness to work the land and produce the food that would feed the entire nation. The blood, sweat, and tears of our ancestors are in each reclaimed beam, timber and plank.  Our barn wood furniture pays tribute to this Americana. 

    Woodland Creek Furniture welcomes the opportunity to handcraft a piece of unique barnwood furniture for you and your family. All of our designs can be custom made to fit your home, office, cottage or ranch. Call us today and let’s discuss your project.

  • What is Organic Furniture?

    “Organic means coming from living things.“

    At Woodland Creek Furniture wood is our primary organic material for beautiful furniture design. Our organic furniture uses the nature curves and flow of forest grown hardwoods to create furniture that accentuates nature’s designs.
    Our craftsman create organic furniture that use the shape of the wood to form soft live lines furniture for sustainable living. Woodland Creek’s organic furniture embraces the sense that they are from living structures.

    Handmade slab counters of black walnut, sycamore, cherry, maple or ash create an amazing contrast with stainless steel dishwashers, refrigerators, and stoves. A kitchen with organic designs feels warm and alive yet clean and creative.

    “Even the lacquer we us to finish many of our organic pieces is derived from organic wood compounds.”

    Organic furniture design celebrates the natural wood structure in curves, texture, and coloration to create works of art with the comfort of fine furniture. The living grains in the surface of the wood create a natural flow of light through each room.

    Woodland Creek’s craftsman uses the natural interwoven structure of teak roots to create a phenomenal base for our glass organic coffee tables.
    For hundreds of years the upper structure of the trees was cut and utilized. Now the root structures are utilized also. We believe in “whole use.” Leave nothing but sawdust (and we burn this to heat our workshop – nothing is wasted – the true definition of sustainable manufacturing & sustainable furniture).

    Antlers from deer and antelope are wonderful renewable organic products. Cast off each winter, antlers are usually consumed by mice and porcupines for their protein and mineral content. We use them to create beautiful organic antler chandeliers with a new twist. Think of an antler chandelier stained in rubbed bronze or silver graphite. They are just amazing and epitomize this new design movement called “rustic chic”.

  • Custom Made Rustic Furniture

    Ready to add some rustic warmth to your home?

    Woodland Creek Furniture is the store that can help. But Woodland Creek is not your typical furniture store and, in fact, could be one of Michigan’s best-kept secrets. Within your first five steps into their unique stores in Traverse City and Kalkaska, I think you’ll agree that the designs are fresh, the energy is upbeat and the staff rarely says “no.” Just about every rustic furniture design you see can be reimagined in any size or color and for any layout — making custom made furniture a snap!  Try asking for a piece of rustic furniture to be made a custom size or color at the big box furniture stores. That will earn you a “have-you-lost-your mind” stare. Not at Woodland Creek, which loves doing custom.  That’s because many of Woodland Creek’s furniture designs are made right here, in its own northern Michigan workshop. Handpicked craftsmen make other designs that are available exclusively at Woodland Creek.  Custom furniture does not mean “expensive” either.  Since you are dealing factory-direct, you will get factory pricing along with your access to nearly unlimited options in woods, textures and colors.  Each of Woodland Creek’s more than 1,500 rustic furniture designs can be custom made to your specifications.

     

    With Woodland Creek, you can expect a progressive twist to old standards of traditional rustic design.   Woodland Creek is pairing reclaimed barn wood, live edge barnwood, and live edge hardwoods with different bark textures, weathered metal panels, gray washed inserts, chipped edge glass, salvaged birch bark, burl wood panels and other unique looking textures.  The combination is unique custom made rustic furniture for your home, office, lodge, ranch, mountain, cabin or camp décor.  Starting in summer of 2015 customers ordering custom made rustic furniture will be able to watch live time as their furniture is handcrafted by some of the finest rustic furniture builders in the country.  Watch as raw wood and varying rustic mediums are transformed into functional works of art.

    Woodland Creek keeps up with all the new trends in furniture, displaying what’s particularly in vogue at its showrooms in Las Vegas and Denver. Top interior designers around the country have Woodland Creek build custom made rustic furniture for them. These guys and gals are on top of what’s hot!  Working with reclaimed woods before that became cool, Woodland Creek offers furniture and other items supporting today’s popular “refined rustic, soft modern and elegant casual lifestyle.” The style niche is focused on pairing reclaimed woods, live edge slabs and organic shapes with modern, linear furniture design, including polished and brushed stainless steel and beveled or chipped glass.  “Major furniture shows and the DIY shows on television are showing the mixture of rustic with modern, rustic with Tuscan, rustic with Cottage,” said Gina Evina,, the Traverse City store’s friendly interior designer.

     

    “Customers are mixing ‘soft modern’ or ‘refined rustic’ in all types of decors, including traditional. It is becoming mainstream.” If people don’t see exactly what they want in the store or on the company website, Evina advises them on mixing and matching the various bases, tops, woods, metals, glasses and finishes to suit their personal style. A base preferred on one table can be paired with a different top from another piece, for a customized new piece. By contrast, import furniture makers typically offer one size and one color for a particular product.  Should customers have another idea entirely for a piece of furniture, Evina’s motto is simply “Let’s design it together.” Personal service is one key to Woodland Creek’s success.

    Woodland Creek has designers on staff that make house calls to help with the design process.  Several gorgeous dining room tables on display Woodland Creek are made from planks of genuine Michigan hardwood, which are much thicker than mass-produced tables. Woodland Creek’s dining and coffee tables, headboards and footboards include the variations most people appreciate about real wood, including natural grain and occasional knots.  Complementing the Woodland Creek custom made rustic furniture are unique accessories, including special light fixtures.  A chandelier dangled over one long rustic table in the showroom made a dramatic statement, its 10 or more mixed media-enclosed filament lights hanging from raw cords off a large ceiling medallion. You must see it!  The cost of Woodland Creek’s custom made rustic furniture are “always a pleasant surprise for customers,” said Evina. “Customers tell us all the time that they were expecting much higher prices.”

     

    Woodland Creek’s handcrafted, solid hardwood and Made-in-Michigan dining tables start at $1,795 — about half of what name brand manufacturers would charge, according to Evina.  Woodland Creek pieces attract customers worldwide, and Evina expects continued market growth for the company this year because: “We are surrounded by some of the finest hardwoods in America, we handcraft each piece of furniture with Old World techniques and everything we make or that we offer from other American craftsmen can be customized.  Oh, and our designs make people stop in the tracks and say, ‘Wow!’”

    Showroom visitors are welcome “to open the drawers, shake the footboards and lean on the table tops,” Evina said. “In that way, they’ll “see and understand the difference between our quality custom made rustic furniture and mass-produced furniture.”

  • 4 Amazing Antler Furniture Creations from Woodland Creek    

    Woodland Creek Furniture Specializes in Reclaimed Organic Materials in its Designs. 

    Elk and deer shed their antlers as winter progresses, allowing them to save energy in the deep cold. Many local Department of Natural Resource Offices allow Scouts to collect antlers on DNR managed land. The Scouts resell the antlers to raise money for their troupe.

    Woodland Creek Furniture’s craftsman use many of these shed antlers from elk, mule, whitetail and moose for their exclusive antler furniture & antler tables. Combining antler sheds and natural edge woods of black walnut, ash, maple, cherry, aspen, oak or beautiful burl our craftsman create amazing antler designs never before attempted in the furniture industry. Each antler furniture piece is a work of fine American art.

    Reclaimed wood with Antler Embellishment

    This new reclaimed antler dining table is made with a solid wood natural live edge slab top supported by an organic juniper trunk and natural elk sheds. The base features real elk antlers finished in our exclusive bronze finish. This elite finish has taken many months for our design group to perfect.

    The finish has genuine copper particles mixed in to create this rustic deep copper bronze hue. The thick juniper base will also have a beautiful bronze finish. A variety of master tints are available for our antler furniture. From Opel & Gold to Rustic Barn wood or Natural to White Wash the tints will accent any rustic or modern décor.

    We suggest placing the antler table in a sunlight area. Allowing sunlight to shine across the surface creates a deep golden glow to the surface. The combination of rich black walnut and real antler in bronze is stunning. Please share your thought of adding moose or fallow deer shed to create your personal design. Of course, we can make our antler tables in the length and width of your choice.

    Antler Furniture made for authentic elk and deer antler shedding!

    Woodland Creek’s antler sofa table or antler console table features real Rocky Mountain Elk and Eurasian Fallow Deer antlers. The fallow deer lives in wood and grass lands through out Spain, France, and as far south as Greece. They are noted for their smaller size but spectacular antlers.


    This antler sofa table is a Woodland Creek exclusive. Two rugged live edge slabs are paired with real elk and fallow deer antlers. The antler is then finished in our new proprietary bronze & copper finish giving it a rich luster. Or the antlers can be left in their natural color for a more realistic look.
    The combination of walnut, antler and bronze create a functional antler table with an artistic design. Our antler furniture can be made custom sizes to fit your space. Black walnut has always been the favorite but a table made of cherry is equally as beautiful!

    a beautiful piece of antler furniture!
    Despite popular belief, the size of a deer rack is not a good indicator of the animal’s age. Adult male’s antlers will reach its largest sizes at about five to eight years. Deer antlers have been recorded to grow as fast as ½” per day. This striking antler coffee table is designed with two beautiful live edge black walnut slabs paired with naturally shed deer and elk antlers. The craftsman artistically designed the antler coffee table so it has a raised shelf. We can also make the antler coffee table in this way.

    A beautiful Combination!

    The combination of walnut and antler create a functional artistic design. We can also make our antler coffee table in custom sizes to fit your space. Keep in mind, that we make our antler furniture with many other species of wood such as redwood, burl wood, maple, ash, elm and oak. Share your design ideas. We are very creative.

    Bull elk lose their antlers each March, but they begin to grow them back in May in preparation for the late summer breeding season. Today elk live primarily in western North America, especially in mountainous landscapes such as Wyoming’s National Elk Refuge and Yellowstone National Park. Some eastern U.S. states like Michigan have reintroduced small elk herds into heavily wooded wilderness areas. Pigeons River State forest is the home of Michigan’s elk herd. The artisans of Woodland Creek rarely get a period of time they are not working on a customer’s order; however, on those rare occasions, we allow our wonderful artist to dream up beautiful new antler designs!

    Rustic Furniture has a character all its own. It has been referred to as Barnwood furniture, Farmhouse, Natural or Reclaimed wood furniture. Chances are, if you live in the United States, you’ve sat down to eat at a farmhouse table at least once in your life. Whatever you decide to call it; there is no substitute for this warm and inviting style of furnishings. Keep in mind, there are different rustic themes and designs. For instance, there is a segment of furniture referred to as contemporary rustic. It has been described at the Ralph Lauren of rustic because ‘it is rustic but it is also elegant and refined’

    Many Wonderful Comments

    People who start off putting rustic furniture into just one room will get comments like, ‘I love this room’ or ‘What did you do to make this room so beautiful?’ Your guests aren’t seeing ‘the room’ they are seeing the furniture. When you furnish an entire home in a rustic décor, then you get comments like ‘What a beautiful home!’ If clothes make the man, furniture makes the home.

    Attention Baby Boomers, are you looking to downsize, relocate or redecorate? Are you planning to build a hideaway in the mountains, near your favorite lake or even at a ski resort? Bedroom, living room, dining room and kitchen furniture in rustic designs can mean the difference between a home and a haven.
