  • 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

    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?

  • Rustic Barnwood Bed for Your Bedroom

    Link to the barnwood horse panel bed Barnwood Bed with Metal Horse Art

    Bold barnwood bed design for your Bedroom

    This one goes out to all the equestrian fanatics. We see you and appreciate you! Also, we 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! However, 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! On the other hand, 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.

    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! Although, it is 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.

    Beautiful Design for a Western Style

    link to the barnwood bed Barnwood Bed with Metal Horse Art

    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 is crafted from hand-hammered copper. Skill of this level is not easy to find! However, 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! However, 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! Also, you’ll get a year’s warranty too.

  • Modern Natural Bed

    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

    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.

    Entertainment with a Cottage Entertainment Center

    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! You don’t get that by cutting corners or skimping on the quality of materials being used.

    link to the cottage entertainment center 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! Although, 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.

  • Rooting out your new design aesthetic

    link to a modern root console table Modern Root Console Table

    You might think that you’ve seen some pretty bold furniture designs in your time! Today, we are going to introduce you to something wild. You probably never knew that you needed a truly show-stopping console table. However, you’re about to realize that they are your new obsession!

    Modern Console Table for your Rustic Home

    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! Our expert team is 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! However, 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! Although, 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!

    Sized for any Room

    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!

  • Modern Rustic Coffee 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.

    Modern Rustic Coffee Table... An oddity?

    Modern rustic coffee table designs might sound at odds with themselves, with apparently contradictory styles being meshed together. However, when done well, the resulting furniture can be a masterpiece. We like to think that you’ll see exactly what we mean here! The 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! Instead, we 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! Which could integrate into any home with ease, thanks to the transitional nature of the overall effect.

    A design to pique your Interest!

    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! It also carries 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 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! You don’t have afraid to start a conversation! About how we can take our perfectly beautiful table and ensure that it is made to measure your home.

  • Solid Modern Bedroom Furniture

    What modern storage dreams are made of

    link to a piece of solid modern bedroom furniture Live Edge Dresser

    If we asked you to picture solid modern bedroom furniture that featured organic wood in a prominent position. What would come to your 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. They allow for seamless grain flow to balance out the overarching contemporary themes with some natural warmth. 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. The drawers are 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. However, 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. However, 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 solid modern bedroom furniture 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. Our designs are imagined and realized right here in the USA.  None of our production is outsourced.
