  • Leave Preconceptions At the Dining Room Door!

    If we asked you to picture a rustic solid wood dining table, what image would come to mind? Something a little fussy maybe? Or with amplified patina, unnecessary metal braces and hard-to-match dining chairs?

    Well, first things first, that’s not how rustic furniture has to look, when it is designed well and made by artisans that understand their craft. Secondly, you can have a contemporary take on rustic designs, however unlikely that might sound, when you shop with us.

    A marriage of styles

    Hybrid designs are fantastic. They let you get the best of a few different influences, meaning that you can bring together a host of things that you enjoy, all in one piece of striking furniture, but it has to be done well. We know that not every new-meets-old design is a winner, which is why we took more time, extra care and a lot of consideration when we created our X Base Dining Table.

    We started with an idea centered around an x base dining table. The simple and striking nature of the look, coupled with the middle stretcher bar, creates an updated version of the traditional and much-loved trestle base dining table that features in so many rustic homes. From here, we knew that a solid wood top was the only option, which is offered in either alder or red oak, for that perfect farm style. The main design feature that we wanted to include, was adaptability though, which is why there are plenty of options for customizing your build.

    Made to measure

    When you want a suit that fits you perfectly, you go to a world-class tailor and when it comes to buying a piece of furniture that will last a lifetime, amplify its surroundings and fit a space without compromise, you come to us at Woodland Creek Furniture.

    Our contemporary rustic design gives you a host of options. The first thing we ask you to decide on is whether you want yours to be an expandable dining table. From there we offer a choice of six standard sizes for non-extenders and 18 for those that do increase by a leaf, or two. Next, you’ll select your preferred finish and finally, you’ll tell us which width will work best for you. By building in this much choice, we make it as simple as possible to select not only the most beautiful table that you’ve ever seen, but one that fits like it was individually commissioned. Of course, that’s also a possibility and you are very welcome to contact us and start a conversation about a truly bespoke build.

    We’ve taken the time to include all the features that you’d expect to see in a rustic table, from a trestle base to a solid wood top and the result is a breadboard end dining table that maintains sleek lines and simple character to keep it contemporary. Built to order, usually within 6-8 weeks, your dining room could be transformed in little more than two months if this is the right table for you!

  • A Santa Fe State Of Mind

    What do you get when you combine a striking walnut live edge top with artisanal metalwork? The answer is a rustic dining table that you’ll be proud to place at the center of your home and an investment piece of furniture that will turn friends and family positively green with envy!

    Solid wood dining tables, by their very nature, all have a lot of traits in common, meaning that the real trick is to find new and exciting designs that not only showcase the wood to its fullest, but also draw attention to unique nuances that make a table stand out from the crowd. Here at Woodland Creek Furniture, we specialize in the innovative and our Santa Fe Walnut Dining Table is a perfect demonstration of that ethos and driving force.

    A design that evolved intuitively

    Part of our wider Santa Fe collection, when we sat down to dream up our walnut dining room centrepiece, we knew one thing: we wanted it to be a live edge dining table. Enjoying a serious surge in popularity, natural finishes such as live edges can turn what would be a beautiful item into something other-worldly and timeless. We weren’t finished there, however.

    With a live edge already decided on, we knew it would be a challenge to come up with a leg or support style that would complement the walnut, without overshadowing it or simply being drowned out by its beauty. There was only one thing for it, we had to choose a handcrafted artisanal metal base, with an eye-catching walnut stretcher as part of the design. The finished look is a fetching and slightly contemporary take on rustic chic that would be perfectly at home in any setting. Let’s be honest, you can’t say that you’ve seen too many hand-forged base dining table designs that straddle the line between modern and rustic, can you?

    Craftsmanship you can depend on

    Offered in six standard sizes, ranging from 60-120” in length, there will be a pre-designed model that will work in your home, but should you want to customize and commission a bespoke size, that’s no problem.

    Every table, whether bespoke or a freely offered size, is built to order and with the same amount of care, attention and craftsmanship. For example, it doesn’t make a difference if you choose the smallest stock size or ask for a Santa Fe table to be made to very bespoke dimensions, you will still get a stunning natural wood dining table, complete with thick hand-hammered base and a live edge top.

    Delivered free of charge within the contiguous 48 states, the Santa Fe Walnut Dining Table comes with a full year of warranty and our hope that your purchase will be the first of many that cement a long-lasting relationship with us as your solid wood furniture provider of choice. If you need any more convincing, take a look at the review section, where you’ll find a five-star recommendation from a very discerning client!

  • Wash Away Memories Of Bad Bathroom Furniture

    If you’ve been thinking about revamping your bathroom, don’t go anywhere, as we have the PERFECT copper vanity unit to introduce you to today. Antique in style, built from the very best materials and creating a gorgeous focal point for the smallest room in the house, we know you’re going to fall in love with our Copper Vanity with Hand Hammered Copper Sink.

    A Match Made In Bathroom Heaven

    As far as we’re concerned, there’s only one way to make a solid wood vanity or a reclaimed wood vanity better and that’s by adding some recycled copper elements, to lift the whole design into a new sphere of bathroom furniture and that’s exactly what we have done here.

    Starting with the main carcass, we decided that genuinely reclaimed barn wood, with at least 100 years of character and strength, was the only material that would suffice. Injecting the piece with instant heritage and ensuring uniqueness, the reclaimed timber is also able to withstand the moisture in bathroom air, making it a steadfast choice, but let’s be honest and admit that the copper is really stealing the show here.

    A Design Masterclass

    Adding warm, gleaming panels to the cabinet and drawer fronts created an exciting and playful piece in itself, but with the addition of a hand hammered sink, the finished design is out of this world. If you invested in no other eye-catching pieces for your bathroom, the finished look wouldn’t suffer at all, as this recycled copper vanity can carry an interior design scheme all on its own.

    Creating a delightfully vintage ambiance, we think that traditional bathroom suites would pair exquisitely with our old world copper vanity, while giving you the chance to neatly store any modern appliances out of sight too. Though having said that, in an otherwise contemporary space, a surprising antique addition can make a big impact too. We can’t think of a home where this piece wouldn’t immediately ingratiate itself and look the part. In rustic homes, such as cabins and lodges, we can see it fitting in beautifully with a large collection of solid wood furniture, but equally, in a modern home, it would be a gorgeous focal point that could easily be expanded on.

    Ample storage has been factored in, as you would expect with a useful vanity unit. A full height cabinet allows you to hide way bulky items that disrupt the clean lines of your bathroom, while smaller drawers offer you convenient spaces for small, easily lost items.

    Given the special nature of this design and the fact that we make to order, we ask for a little more time than usual. We aim to complete production within 12-14 weeks, but we would prefer not to rush either our artisans or the perfection that they are crafting, just for you.

    For more information or to discuss other vanity options, please get in touch. We will be happy to devise a plan for your next purchase.

  • Don’t Sleep On A Stylish Opportunity!

    Technically we DO want you to sleep, because today, we are taking a closer look at one of our most beautiful, well considered and popular reclaimed wood bed designs.

    The Barn Wood Bed with Forged Branches is a prime example of the way that we are always looking to innovate and bring the most unique, yet timeless and functional designs possible to our customers, both old and new. Rustic beds can be a little too ‘earthy’, if the nuances aren’t brought together in the exact right way, but we know that, which is why we’re the experts at creating balanced aesthetics that work in any home. Let’s take a closer look at some of the details here, to prove the point.

    Understated Yet Eye-Catching

    A difficult harmony to capture, marrying an unassuming yet beautiful set of features together doesn’t always work, but with our barnwood bed, we know we’ve got it right. Starting with a sturdy frame, constructed entirely from genuinely aged barn wood, there is an elegant and stoic presence to this bed, with the solid lines being broken up by striking metalcraft.

    Our in-house metal artisan hammers each pine cone branch design personally, before it is expertly added to the headboard to create something that looks incredible in any style of home. We’re not just paying lip service to the universal appeal of this bed, as we have seen it taking center stage in rustic bedrooms as well as more contemporary spaces, because the styling makes it adaptable. Add in the fact that you can choose from a queen, king or Californian king and it is easy to see why this is such a sought-after design.

    Making It Just For You

    We are craftspeople first and a business second, which is why our pieces are made to order, not simple art of a production line operation and that gives you, the customer, an opportunity to get involved with the design process. We think that offering you the chance to make a bed that you’ve fallen in love with 100% perfect for you and your home is something rather special and we never shy away from the potential for custom work. With that in mind, if you love this rustic elegant wood bed but have a couple of ideas for the metalwork, get in touch and we can see if our metal guru can turn your vision into reality.

    A Worthy Investment

    Your bed is one of the most important pieces of furniture that you’ll ever buy. Not only is it a focal point in your bedroom, it is something that you’ll depend on for many years, which is why we want to reassure you that we only use genuine reclaimed barn wood in this beautiful design. Strength and character are interwoven into every piece that we make and then, we inject something extra; a solid dose of American pride.

    Free shipping and a generous warranty come as standard, so why not take a closer look and see if this could be your forever bed?

  • Designed To Help You Unwind

    Plenty of furniture claims to help you relax and unwind but we think we might have one of the few pieces guaranteed to make good on that promise, in the form of our Denver Copper Bar.

    Home bars can be notoriously difficult to get right. You want to strike the right balance between attractive liquor storage, authentic bar feel and something that can look handsome and not out of place in your home too. It’s a tough list of requirements to fulfill, but our reclaimed wood copper bar ticks every box.

    Looks You’ll Love

    Just look at this old world copper bar! Seriously, this is definitely going to be a place where everybody knows your name, because you’ll never want to leave it and if it’s in your house, you don’t need to.

    We really took our time with this design. Not only did we want to account for all the necessities listed above, but we also wanted to create something that would remain timeless forever, hold distinctive charm and exude undeniable character out into whichever room it is placed in. The result is a Spanish style copper bar that sees beautiful materials working harmoniously, not competing with each other, to garner your attention.

    Carefully Considered Details

    We were careful not to design a boxy piece of furniture with no special touches here, but it’s hard to pick a favorite design element! A strong contender has to be the ornate front hooks and footrest installation, which adds in a touch of traditional bar aesthetics but also some practicality. It also naturally draws the eyes up and towards that gleaming countertop, but the real flair is found on the server’s side.

    Large storage cabinets, thoughtful small drawers for fiddly items such as cocktail stirrers and corkscrews and a large preparation surface, all complete with riveted details and glimmering metal accents make playing the host nothing short of a pleasure behind this recycled copper bar. We take our time finishing this piece, asking for up to 14 weeks from point of ordering, so that when it arrives, free of charge in the contiguous states, you simply have to place it and get the party started. You won’t need to finish or worry about the details here, as we’ll take care of everything. All you need to do is ensure that you have a few bottles of your favorite tipple ready to stock the cabinets with.

    Our solid wood copper bar has been designed to withstand regular use, so place in a man cave or even a game room, complete with a stylish pool table perhaps, and make the most of it. Built from strong American timber, it is ready to be the centerpiece in countless memories to come and if you need any more persuading, just imagine the first family Christmas spent making snowballs and bucks fizz. Talk about a jolly holiday!

    You can spread the cost of a stunning home bar with our partner, Bread. Making financing easy, transparent and penalty-free is in their DNA, just as making the furniture of your dreams is in ours.

  • Rack 'Em Up!

    When we say rack ‘em up, we aren’t just talking about the balls on your potential new pool table, but also your undeniable style points!

    A Treat For You And Your Home

    You work hard and you’ve taken the time to curate a stunning home for yourself, so what’s left to do? The answer is obvious…it’s time to create the ultimate games room, complete with outrageously decadent pool table that guests will find it impossible not to stare at. We want to give you fair warning though – this Barnwood Pool Table with Wildwood Accents is so exquisite that friends and family members might actually ask permission before playing a game with you!

    So what makes this such a special and elegant pool table? It starts with the fact that is has been handcrafted from amazing reclaimed wood. We don’t accept just any bran wood when we are sourcing timber for our pieces and though competitors might be satisfied with just 50 years of history in their material, but we are resolutely not. We demand a minimum of 100 years of American history and pride in every timber that we re-purpose and we treat them all with the utmost respect, as can be seen in the details of this eye-catching investment.

    Working With Our Materials

    Boasting isn’t an attractive quality but we see nothing wrong in celebrating our good fortune to work with some of the finest craftsmen available, with the results speaking for themselves. In comes our carefully sourced barn wood and our magicians work their magic, turning distressed timbers into intricately carved and revitalized statement items, such as this antique wood pool table. Just look at those legs, not to mention the main body of the table, which houses all of the internal mechanism. It’s a work of art and you wouldn’t believe how long it takes for us to complete one of these amazing tables.

    We need, on average, just 6-8 weeks, from the point of ordering, to build your table, regardless of whether you choose a 7, 8 or 9ft version. Though opportunities to customize are limited here, to ensure proper functionality, we can extend you a near-impossible choice of 30 felt colors for your playing surface, so whether you choose tournament green or feel like being more flamboyant with gold or orange, you can inject some all-important personality into your reclaimed wood pool table design.

    When assembling your new table, a professional technician will be needed. We are happy to take all of the hassle out of sourcing one in your area for you, or you are welcome to find your own. Just remember that assembly is not the moment to cut corners, as proper felt stretching and internal assembly will be essential for longevity.

    We know that this is a large investment, but it’s one that your home will thank you for and if we were betting people, we’d wager that you’ll look for some complementary reclaimed wood game room furniture in the future as well. If nothing else, we think a striking bar or entertainment center would be the perfect finishing touch.

  • All Work And A Playful Design

    Challenges are just opportunities that you haven’t fulfilled yet and we love them here at Woodland Creek. It stands to reason, therefore, that taking on the gargantuan task of transforming what would normally be a very strait-laced and uninspiring piece of furniture and turning it into a glorious masterpiece was at the top of our to-do list and we think we’ve cracked it. Say goodbye to boring office desks and help to your new reclaimed wood office furniture.

    Almost Distractingly Beautiful

    We understand the logic of keeping office furniture on the dull side, so that it doesn’t distract you from all your necessary day-to-day clerical tasks, but we happen to believe that surrounding yourself with beauty is far more inspiring and will lead to increased creativity, productivity and job satisfaction. You can take that from us, as we are surrounded by our incredible designs each and every day and we can’t help coming up with even more!

    In the case of our Rustic Barnwood Desk, we think you’ll spot everything that makes it incredible in an instant. First off, you’ll no doubt enjoy the interplay between warm tones and textural finishes that draw your eye to every corner of the piece. Retaining a rustic yet refined ambience, it made perfect sense to include inlay detailing, with both metal and wood elements being used to phenomenal effect. Lastly, we know you’ll appreciate the combination of function with aesthetics, because what use is office furniture that only looks good? That’s why we’ve included four useful drawers, finished with metal strap handles, to keep you organized, as well as at the cutting edge of office design.

    A Desk Made To Work

    We don’t like the idea of limitations, so while this is absolutely a perfect inlaid desk for your home, lodge or cabin, don’t discount it from being a centerpiece in your professional office either. It might seem a little radical, to insert an old world style desk into a contemporary office, but we think it’s a chance to inject some personal style and to make your professional sphere entirely geared towards maximum productivity. Admit it – you’d much rather work late at this gorgeous desk than a bog-standard metal and plastic version that everyone else has, wouldn’t you?

    If you’re concerned that you might be able to walk into another office and see the exact same desk, we hear you, which is why we offer a fully customizable experience. You can change up the size and even tailor your inlay details to suit you and your working space perfectly, without worrying about losing any of the heritage charm that makes the original design so special. We’ll ask you for up to 8 weeks to build and complete your new piece of furniture and we’ll ship it to you for free, within the contiguous states, but to set your mind at ease even more, just take a look at what a previous customer has to say about their barnwood desk,

    “We were really nervous ordering an expensive piece of furniture online, but this company EXCEEDED our expectations! The items are beautiful and we intend to order more this year. We HIGHLY RECOMMEND this company…”

    You can’t say fairer than that!

  • Forget About The Television

    What do you get when you combine definitive functionality with inspired design? An investment piece of living room furniture that will easily garner every bit of your attention, making you all but forget about the tv. We don’t make such claims lightly, but when you find out more about our distressed wood coffee table of dreams, we know you’ll be on-board.

    Adding Some Heritage To Your Home

    The first thing to notice about the Heritage Collection Barnwood Coffee Table is that it’s gorgeous. Perfectly proportioned to be diminutive yet useful and plump yet  chic, it injects any property with some antique charm in an instant. The secret is that we use genuine reclaimed barn wood, which comes saturated in traditional American history, which adds such depth to all of our pieces, but in particular, this antique wood coffee table.

    You don’t need to have a super rustic, antique-filled home to make space for an eye-catching piece of barnwood living room furniture, so if you’re wondering how a design like this would work in a contemporary setting, picture the scene. Bright carpets, unfussy sofas and chairs and modern lighting, all balanced in one easy motion, with the inclusion of a barnwood beauty, such as this. It will let you strike the perfect harmony in your home and every individual detail will amplify the effect.

    Details To Admire

    Here at Woodland Creek, we strive for more. More skill, design intuitiveness and above all else, more attention to detail, which is why we know you’ll love the weathered styling that mimics leather straps on steamer trunks of yesteryear. We don’t take it too far, so as to stray into the novelty furniture realm, but we just add in enough sympathetic nods to show that we know what makes for stunning furniture that you’ll love for a lifetime.

    As standard, our barn wood coffee table is 48” square, but we know that not every home is the same size, which is why we love being given the opportunity to recreate a classic design from our portfolio, in bespoke sizes. Your millimeter perfect living room addition is just an online conversation away and we have the reviews to put your mind at ease. There are no shortcuts here and with every table being made to order, you know that your purchase is just as special to us as it is to you and that taking some extra time to make it entirely yours is not something we will shy away from.

    American Pride

    Call us old fashioned if you wish, but we are proud to be an American company, which is why we exclusively use barn wood made in the USA for our reclaimed pieces. This great country of ours is blessed to have some of the richest heritage in the world and we want to help your home tap into that each and every day.

    We make our furniture with artisan hands, we source century-old timber and we deliver free of charge within the 48 contiguous states and why? Because that’s the American and therefore the Woodland Creek Furniture way.

  • A Place to Come Together

    All dining tables are alike and do the same thing, right? Wrong! When designed with actual customers in mind, pieces can embrace a different vibe and style and we think we've managed to harmonize celebration, togetherness, and practicality with our Santa Fe Walnut Dining Table.

    A hybrid design everyone loves

    The old adage that you can't please everyone is true, to a certain extent, but when it comes to designing transitional dining room furniture that can easily be imagined in any home, we think we've mastered the art.

    Our Santa Fe dining table has been created to offer the best of traditional motifs, mixed with contemporary finishes and pride-infused American craftsmanship. The result speaks for itself, but let's talk about some of the most iconic details.

    Design features to dine out on

    A trestle base dining table, the Santa Fe takes a recognizable design element and adds in hand-forged metal supports, connected by a coordinating walnut stretcher, but if you're thinking that this is a simple piece of metalwork, think again. These bases are not mass produced or cast, they are made the old fashioned way, with hand tools and expertise, which is how subtle decorative elements can be added in, such as the pins holding the stretcher in place. Small details such as this let the artistry shine through, while also drawing your attention to the solid and robust overall design.

    Now, to that gorgeous walnut top! A hand-forged base dining table could, within reason, withstand almost any style or weight of the top, but we particularly love the continuation of darker tones and the rich depth that a live edge walnut slab offers. Taking into account natural variance with the slabs, as well as artisan forging marks in the metal, we can guarantee you that no two of our walnut and metal dining table designs will ever be identical, which means that you'll be in possession of something exclusive to you.

    Made to measure

    We know we keep saying it, but it's important to reiterate the fact that our designs are made specifically for you. We don't mass produce, we handcraft and that allows for a certain amount of customization options to be built into the ordering process. In the case of this stunning dining room centerpiece, that means choosing the perfect size for your space.

    We offer four 'standard' sizes as part of our 'click to buy' online service, but if you have a definite size in mind, don't hesitate to get in touch with us. We are always keen to make your furniture dreams come true and if that means sourcing a slab of a different size, just for you, that's the extra mile that we are happy to travel in the name of customer satisfaction.

    We ask for between 6-8 weeks to create your new dining table and in return for your patience, we will ship free of charge, within the USA and extend to you a year-long warranty. That's just the Woodland Creek way.

  • A Different Flavor

    Dining tables have long been thought of as one of the most practical and functional pieces of furniture in the home but if we told you that they could double as a genuine work of art... you’d want to know more, wouldn't you?

    Here at Woodland Creek Furniture, we are consistently looking for new ways to re-imagine items that every home needs, to give you the opportunity to own something truly unique and unforgettable and we think we've hit the jackpot with our Modern Half Circle Base Dining Table.

    More than just a base

    Let's take a closer look at what makes this contemporary dining table so special - the eye-catching stainless steel base. Available in a polished or brushed finish and with a silver or gold hue, the customization options start right away.

    Perfect for modern homes that already feature metal furniture accents or even more rustic properties that are looking to bring in some contemporary flair, the base here lends itself to a surprising number of interior design schemes. In addition, the striking crescent shapes have been designed to perfectly balance the weight of a number of tabletops, which brings us to the next personalization opportunity.

    Making it your own

    Who doesn't love live edge furniture? It's fair to say that most of us enjoy the natural beauty and individuality that such pieces bring to a home and though you might not think so, our incredible metal base design here partners beautifully with natural slabs, to create a live edge dining table. You can even opt for reclaimed timber, oak or, for something extra special, a top that turns your contemporary masterpiece into a black walnut dining table. Every other piece of furniture in your dining space will certainly have a task on its hands competing for star of the show!

    If natural edge furniture isn't what you're looking for, keep it sleek and chic with a solid top, available in a number of finishes. Our oak tops are perfect for treating, painting or staining, to ensure perfect integration into your already beautiful home, but don't worry about choosing the right size, as you can get in touch to discuss something special.

    Though we offer a number of fairly stock size options for our dining tables, we never shy away from a chance to create the perfect piece of furniture for you. With our Half Circle Base Table, you'll be surprised at just how many sizes you can choose from and we are talking about length as well as width. The base pieces can be spread far enough apart to give you almost endless options, in terms of dimensions, so don't think that you'll have to compromise, because you won't. That word is not in our vocabulary.

    Delivered via a free shipping service within the USA and usually taking between 6-8 weeks to complete, according to your exact specifications, you can rest easy that all the hard work is firmly in our hands once you've clicked to buy. That's a promise.
