  • 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

    We create everything that you never knew you needed, but with functionality always at the core of our designs. We take pride in our heritage as an American self-made company and we are always striving to marry contemporary and rustic styles together to generate new and exciting choices for discerning customers. Our modern wood dresser is just one example of the many beautiful items we have masterminded, so be sure to take a look at our others.

  • 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.

    Great for your back, thanks to the low position that mimics traditional Japanese futon bed styles, we also wanted to make this loft platform bed easy on your finances, which is why we have partnered with Bread. Offering easy to manage and transparent financing contracts, Bread makes significant purchases, such as a new bed, easier to afford.

    Shipped for free and with great care, when you order our live edge contemporary platform bed, you can rest easy that your days of bad night’s sleep are soon going to be behind you and that you really don’t have to choose between function and style. You can have both and for a great price too!

  • 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!

  • Modern Wood Office Furniture

    Contemporary Rustic Wood Desk - Asian Walnut

    Working 9-5, what a way to style your office!

    Wouldn’t it be great if there was an easy way to make your working day feel more exciting, fulfilling and even more productive? It might sound strange, but studies have shown that a gorgeous working space can directly contribute to how effective you are, when you’re using it, which is where our spectacular Contemporary Rustic wood desk comes into play!

    Designed to offer you the perfect combination of style and function, you won’t ever complain about being ‘chained to your desk’ ever again, regardless of whether you are working from home, or putting your best interior design foot forward as a CEO in a busty office.

    Contemporary Rustic Wood Desk - Reclaimed Wood

     Simplicity at its core

    We’re no strangers to all-out glamor, especially in terms of CEO-worthy desks, but for this particular design, we wanted to pare things back and focus our attention on creating the perfect industrial modern desk. Sounds like a mismatch of styles? That’s why it was so important to marry each individual facet to the next with care and highly critical eyes.

    We knew that we wanted this to be a reclaimed wood desk, as distressed wood office furniture always brings a certain warmth and charm to a professional space, but we also wanted it to have the look of a custom wood desk. With this in mind, we decided on the following:

    The simplest base – Using black metal linear base pieces has allowed us to maximize the open space in this design, creating a chic and contemporary aesthetic, while also not overshadowing the organic beauty of the selected wood. You get a strong and sturdy support, while the more characterful elements of your desk take the spotlight. An added benefit is that the black metal won’t tarnish or date, leaving you with a truly timeless investment piece.

    A choice of two woods – Whether you fall in love with Asian Walnut or reclaimed timber, we can accommodate you. We’ve chosen these two wood varieties for their strength and natural richness, which adds a soft and welcoming contrast to the industrial-style base. They also both inject instant luxury into any working area, without being too flashy.

    Multiple size options – No two companies are the same, so why would any office be? Using our handy drop-down menu, you can select from three sizes, ranging from 60-72”.

    Handy drawers – Even the tidiest worker needs somewhere to keep small, fiddly items. We include two smooth-opening drawers for exactly this purpose.

    A totally bespoke service – We would be delighted to use this modern rustic office desk as a jumping off point for a custom order. If you have specific wood ideals, proportional needs or even integrated technology desires, please get in touch to find out how simple we make the entire bespoke process.

    Shipped for free, within the contiguous 48 states and arriving complete with a year-long warranty, we want your mind to be firmly on your productivity, not the value or fortitude of your desk. Who said that workspaces can’t be beautiful and have a little glamor too? Certainly not us!

  • Organic Wood Coffee Tables

    Organic Chic Round Branch Coffee Table

    The most unique coffee table around

    There will always be a place for well-designed square and rectangular coffee tables, but we have to admit that we are unable to stop thinking about circular styles. They add a very different vibe, create a unique look in any room and are tricky to get right. Go too simple and you could stray into retro aesthetics, which is great, but not if you’re looking for a modern or rustic center piece. Go too far the other way and you’ll lose all of the interest that a round coffee table creates because it looks way too contemporary. We think we’ve designed a perfectly balanced and undeniably chic coffee table here, so let’s take a closer look!

    Unadulterated wow factor

    When it comes to creating modern wood coffee table designs that can live up to the high mantle of also being labelled as organic living room furniture, we have to be uncharacteristically brazen with our boasting and say that we have mastered the art. It’s not that we want to boast without due cause, more that we have invested countless hours at every stage of the process, from design through to material selection and manufacture, to perfect our Organic Branch coffee table and, well, it’s a dream.

    Crafted from hand-selected branch sections, chosen for their rich natural color, beauty and shapes, crystal-clear glass and bold industrial iron, there is simply nothing to not like about this dazzling design. We are particularly proud of the fact that it ticks a number of boxes, from rustic to contemporary, industrial and organic style genres, as well as being a functional coffee table or a sweet little modern cocktail table. It’s shocking just how many individual elements have been combined to work so well together!

    On paper, a medley of branch segments, topped with clear glass and mounted on a striking black iron cross base shouldn’t work, but one look is all it takes to see that these are elements that longed to come together in one homogenous finished masterpiece.

    One of a kind

    Enjoying a generous but not overbearing diameter of 32”, we know that you’ll be able to find a spot for this striking focal point somewhere in your home and don’t worry that you’ll be able to walk into another property and see one just like yours, as that is impossible. Thanks to the way in which we chose our branch sections, no two tables are ever identical. There may be sibling pieces, which share branches, but the aesthetics of each individual finished product will be unique to that one item.

    We think that maintaining the individuality of our organic designs is essential. No two homes are the same, so why would you, our customers, want generic furniture? That simply won’t do, which is why we strive to offer bespoke-adjacent pieces, at reasonable prices. We also ship for free, within the contiguous 48 states and supply your new table with a comforting full year’s warranty, so why wait any longer for that show-stopping piece of furniture that will bring your entire interior scheme together?

  • Rustic Wood Coffee Tables All Ways

    Birchmere Coffee Table w/ Free Form Black Walnut Top

    But first…coffee table heaven!

    It’s a sad thought, but so many people just assume that a coffee table is a practical addition to a sitting room and nothing more. That’s why they can be small, hidden out of sight or simply tucked away in a corner. We don’t agree, however!

    We firmly believe that every single piece of furniture that you invest in should not only be built specifically for you, they should all fulfil a purpose AND look incredible too. What’s more, we make this belief a reality, particularly with our extensive range of coffee tables. Few designs exemplify our multifaceted approach to furniture design quite like our Birchmere coffee table, so come with us now as we explain exactly why this stunning piece of solid wood furniture is exactly what your home needs.

    Forget what you know!

    You might have an inkling about reclaimed wood furniture. You might even have some thoughts about what live edge coffee tables generally look like, but we are here today to blow all of your expectations out of the water.

    Part of a wider collection inspired by the famous Birchmere Music Hall in Alexandria, this coffee table offers a piquant blend of heritage, natural and modern tropes, all coming together in perfect harmony and what’s more, you can compose the table of your dreams.

    Unlike so many real wood furniture makers, we encourage you to jump in and enjoy some of the design process. After all, the finished product will be living in your home, not our showroom, so it needs to be to your taste and specifications. With the Birchmere coffee table, we give you a few options to choose from, to ensure your new addition will seamlessly integrate into your existing décor scheme.

    Birchmere Coffee Table w/ Waterfall Black Walnut Top
    Birchmere Coffee Table w/ Waterfall Barn Wood Top

    We start with chunky, sturdy and stoic square log bases, each expertly wrapped with poplar bark, for a tactile yet organic and rustic vibe. From here, you can select from a number of different tops. A black walnut coffee table never goes unnoticed, but will you choose the free form live edge option, or the more linear waterfall style? If black walnut isn’t quite right for you, we also offer a waterfall barn wood style, effortlessly marrying two different rustic styles together, to form one incredible piece of furniture that will never be pushed out of sight.

    The fine details

    Stretching out to 56” wide, you’ll have plenty of real estate for keeping all those easy-to-lose living room essential in check, such as remote controls and coasters. Plus, standing at 20” high, you won’t feel as though you are having to peer over a dining table, as you relax on the couch. We’ve taken the time to hone the ideal dimensions for a useful but unobtrusive coffee table, but as you should already know, nothing is too much trouble for our customers.

    If you love the Birchmere but you’re desperate for a different size, simply get in touch and we can talk about a custom piece. And you can rest easy that even if a bespoke item is a better fit for you, you’ll still be able to enjoy free shipping, plus a full year’s warranty.
