  • 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.

  • Bathroom Storage with a Story

    If we told you that one of our most popular product offerings was born out of a customer asking for something specific to be adapted according to her vision, would you believe us? Well, it was and it is our Reclaimed Wood Vanity with Shelf.

    From humble beginnings

    Starting life as a sofa table design, which we think you can easily picture, this gorgeous reclaimed bathroom vanity came about when an inspired and creative customer wanted the dimensions of the sofa table, but with space for a statement sink on top and a handy linen shelf below. It worked so well that we added it to our portfolio and it has become a must-buy item for many homes and it's not hard to see why.

    The right material for the job

    Sourcing reclaimed timber that is a minimum of 100 years old gives us a guarantee of unique barnwood vanity designs, even if, technically, the configurations are the same between two or more. Why? Because you simply cannot mimic patina effectively enough to build identical twins and we're thankful for that. The natural beauty of the raw material can, therefore, be allowed to shine through, unadulterated except for a protective treatment that prevents water damage or spots.

    Antique barnwood furniture is a joy to behold and decorate your home with, but you might be wondering how reclaimed timber and a moisture-rich space can possibly be a good match. The secret is that the material is already strengthened after years of structural use and with a simple treatment, it can become a bathroom's best friend, especially when partnered with a suitably stunning sink.

    All details considered

    We don’t supply sinks, but we can alter your finished reclaimed wood vanity, according to where you want to place your sink and how large your chosen basin is. We can even install false drawer fronts, to give the impression of a comprehensive set of storage options, despite a smaller selection actually being usable. How many faux drawers you have will depend on the size of your vanity, with the option of three, four or five drawers all on offer.

    The lower shelf is another of our favorite elements of this design, as it creates the perfect spot for neatly storing towels and other linens, out of direct sight but well within easy reach.

    Your furniture, your way

    We pride ourselves on putting your needs first, so if you want to customize any of our designs, even our reclaimed wood furniture pieces that are crafted by our artisan team, it is more than possible - it's our pleasure. You'll still be able to take advantage of our free shipping offer and we will do our best to complete your order in the regular amount of time (4-6 weeks in the case of this bathroom vanity) but to a more specific set of requirements.

    That's the Woodland Creek way - exceptional furniture designs, crafted with functionality, beauty, and longevity in mind, as well as specific customer desires.

  • Advocates For Natural Beauty

     

    It's no secret that we love wood, after all, it's the material that we built our entire operation around. We do, however, think that we take extra steps to preserve and safeguard the organic beauty that his ever-evolving material offers and our Barn Wood Bed with Natural Slab is a perfect example of our leanings towards natural beauty stewardship.

    A solid night's sleep

    Let's start by taking a look at the frame. Strong and built to last, natural wood furniture doesn't get much more stoic and masterful than this. Designed to use 6" x 6" barnwood timber posts, this frame makes a statement in any bedroom and has been built to withstand years of happy use.

    Rustic but not unapologetically so to the point where the bed would look out of place in a modern home, this is a wonderful representation of how adaptable reclaimed wood furniture can be, when it is left relatively untouched. The secret is all the history already ingrained in every post, plank, and slab.

    Preserving valuable history

    What makes our reclaimed wood and the furniture made from it, like this bed, so special? The fact that we are diligent when sourcing our material. Some furniture companies make do with 50-year-old timber that hasn't had the requisite amount of time to properly weather and patina, but we have patience and a keen eye. We seek out timber that is at least 100 years old and has served a meaningful purpose already. Every nick, rough sawn mark or nail hole is a glimpse into the past of this incredible material, which you can sleep on, proud to know that you are safeguarding a slice of American history, right there in your home.

    The finishing touches

    A rock-solid real wood furniture bed frame, crafted from reclaimed timber is special in its own right but our designers went one step further and introduced a hearty live edge slab into the mix as well, as a unique headboard. No two will ever be the same, though the quality and care put into each one will be identical.

    Perfectly held between two reclaimed wooden posts, the slab showcases exactly why so many discerning customers fall in love with live edge furniture. It's responsive, warm and yearns to be touched and cared for, but never hidden. This is why we only apply a clear finish, to let Mother nature's art speak for itself and also why we handle the wood the old fashioned way, with time and thought. There's a place for modern techniques, but this bed requires a more holistic and natural touch.

    Available in four sizes, from twin to king, each frame can take around eight weeks to complete before being shipped, free of charge within the USA. We are always looking for new ways to exceed customer expectations, so custom tweaks are never off the table and we are always ready to start a conversation about how to create the absolute best piece of furniture for every individual customer.

    Now that's something that will guarantee a great night's sleep!

  • Make Mine A Double!

    Is there anything more glamorous than a home bar? A home bar covered in hand-hammered copper and with integrated wine racks inside, perhaps?

    We don’t like to think of ourselves as overly showy, after all, we love using the most natural material in the world to bring our artistic visions to life, but every now and then, there’s the call for something that just throws all modesty out of the window and this is it! Our Hand Hammered Copper Bar with Wine Rack won’t be perfect for every home, but those that it would work in won’t be able to live without one.

    A serious statement piece

    Stoic, sturdy and eye-catching, there’s no getting away from the fact that this is a reclaimed wood bar with a difference, however you decide to spec it. For most people, the allure of hand-hammered copper is too hard to resist, resulting in shimmering panels encasing the whole piece, with a matching top as well, all of which end up radiating a luxurious glow into the home. This can be toned down a hair if you want to go for a more subtle look though, as the rear and side panels of the bar can be left as unfussy wood.

    We consider this to be a more unusual piece of furniture, which is why we can’t give an estimation as to how long it will take to create for you. We’ll need to make sure that we’ve got plenty of recycled copper in stock and one of our best craftsmen on standby to focus all of their attention on it and that takes a bit of planning. What we can tell you though, is that you’ll qualify for free shipping, within the contiguous 48 states and that we will keep you updated every step of the way.

    Made for functionality

    What are we most proud of, in terms of our reclaimed wood bar? Surprisingly, it’s not the finished aesthetic of the piece, but the functionality. We think it takes extra attention to detail to make a beautiful thing useful as well but we excel in this area. What were once considered to be uninspiring pieces of furniture for the home, we have reinvented and given new character, making them as much static art pieces as functioning items. Similarly, what could just be a gorgeous thing to look at, we make eminently practical as well, which all of our heirloom copper furniture proves, not just this bar.

    Cabinets offer secure storage for glassware and bottles, while integrated wine racks and shelves use the space beautifully. Small drawers complete the look and make for ideal cocktail accessory storage. You’ll never lose a swizzle stick or corkscrew again!

    Bringing beauty and function together, our copper bar will make itself at home in any style of a room, from traditional lodge lounges through to modern living rooms. The only question is, do you buy enough wine to need one? Of course you do!

  • A Lucky Break For Pool Fans

    A game room might be the hub for fun in your home, but this Barnwood Pool Table with Trestle Base is serious about style! From the first glance, you’ll notice that it isn’t like any other pool table that you’ve seen before and when you start looking at all the intricate details and customization options…you’ll be blown away. Let’s find out a little more.

    A 100-year heritage

     As solid wood pool tables go, this one is extra special, because it has been entirely crafted from reclaimed timber. You won’t find any composite woods, veneers or new material here, with every strut, support and length being imbued with a century o American history. We don’t see age marks or blemishes, we see the character and a story, all of which helps to give your new reclaimed wood pool table a sense of belonging from the moment it arrives.

    Barnwood is hard to source material, which is why it commands a higher price than other materials, but we really think that it’s worth it. We are careful to choose lengths that will stand the test of time while looking great as well. In short, this is a pool table that you can pass down through countless generations of your family, turning it into an art piece and an heirloom, not just an indulgence for yourself. Though who doesn’t deserve a spot of luxury now and then?

    One size doesn’t fit all

     We know that one man’s games room is another’s man cave, which is why we’ve designed this table to look perfect in three different sizes, each of which is built to the same exacting standards as the next. You might not realize, but it takes a master craftsman to be able to build a level and square pool table, which is why nobody with less than a decade of experience touches ours. This isn’t the only aspect that needs an expert touch either.

    The stretching of the top felt is a niche skill, which means that you will need a qualified pool table technician to build yours for you. We are able to find and liaise with somebody in your area for you, for a flat fee, though we always want you to have the option of sourcing somebody yourself, so there is no pressure from us. We just want you to get the best service, especially when you will have deliberated over your felt color choice…

    How many colors are there to choose from? 30! From traditional green through to more unusual and glitzy shades, you can marry the old barnwood together with a contemporary felt color to create a totally one-off antique pool table that will be a worthy focal point in any space.

    We understand that a barnwood pool table is an enormous investment and now, you can apply to finance your purchase through Bread, our transparent financing partner. Select your options and calculate how small your monthly repayments could be. We think you’ll be pleasantly surprised!

  • Furniture That Means Business

    Just because a piece of furniture has a designated serious use, it doesn’t mean that it can’t be beautiful and an investment item. We firmly believe that installing gorgeous pieces in your office can have an amazing effect on how productive you want to be, which is why our Barnwood Desk is such a superb addition to any work space.

    A desk you want to sit at

    Not all desks are created equal and they certainly don’t all inspire you to pull up a chair and commit to a full day at them, but then not everybody can combine elegant style and functionality the way we can. There’s no point in skirting around the issue or being falsely modest, as our reclaimed barnwood desk speaks for itself in terms of beauty and practicality, so you would know that we were being too modest.

    Made from salvaged solid wood, each of our barnyard desk comes laden with heritage already. Every nuance, mark and age spot tells a story of the life the wood had previously and what a joy to be able to re-purpose such beautiful materials, turning them into something so essential. There’s no doubting that every time you sit at one of these desks, you will be overcome with a sense of purpose and determination.

    Make it work for you

    I you’re worried that the nature of the material being used means that you can’t customize your design, think again. We build every one of our reclaimed wood executive desk to order, taking between four and six weeks, which means that you can change up a couple of elements, if you think you need to.

    As standard, the desk comes with antique drawer knobs, but you can opt for wooden ones. You can also add a sliding keyboard platform, which, when not in use, simply stows away elegantly under the desktop, out of sight. This allows you to keep your surface clear and ready to work on and also helps to keep the rustic vibe authentic.

    Though listed as a standard size, you are more than welcome to contact us in order to discuss a fully personalized version, of any size.

    Designing your workspace made easy

    We pride ourselves on our customer service standards, which is why you should find the ordering process not only easy, but also a pleasure. If you need to discuss something custom, we are always at the end of the phone or ready to reply to an email and once your salvaged wood desk design has been finalised, we will ship it to you for free, within the USA.

    We love our work and we want you to know that same feeling of contentment and excitement that we start each and every workday with. If all it takes is choosing the right desk for your office, then we would be delighted to help you achieve workplace bliss by building you the perfect barnwood desk. Just remember that you’ll have to actually do some work on it when it arrives, not just sit and stare!

     

  • Still Waters Run Deep

    You might think that you’ve seen your fair share of modern coffee tables, or hybrid designs that combine rustic and contemporary motifs, but we don’t think you will have ever come across anything as different and beautiful as our A River Runs Through It design.

    Unforgettable design elements

    If a modern coffee table is sleek and unfussy and rustic coffee tables tend to be more rugged and organic, how can we describe this incredible design? Just referring to it as a solid wood coffee table seems somehow too understated, so perhaps we need to devise an entire new genre that accounts for rich redwood, sleek metalwork and smooth pebbles all coming together in perfect harmony.

    Here at Woodland Creek Furniture, we’re known for our attention to detail and considering all design elements to the nth degree, s it shouldn’t come as a surprise that when we were designing our river rock coffee table, we wanted the stones to be extra special too. Technically, we could have filled the beautiful wood voids with any pebbles, but instead, you’ll find handpicked, vibrant stones form the Great Lakes. No, we are not joking and yes, there will still be still plenty of usable flat surface space in and around your unique top.

    Making it your own

    We knew that as soon as you saw this design, you’d want to commission a custom coffee table from us, which is why we set out to offer a number of sizes, options and even shapes to choose from. Also, no two homes are identical, so while one might have a perfect space for a large rectangular piece of furniture, others might barely have enough room for a smaller circular variety. We wanted to be able to offer everybody an equal chance of owning one of these spectacular items, which is why you can customize to your heart’s content.

    You get to choose between rectangle and round designs, before selecting an ideal size, but there’s another fun twist – you get to choose what style of base you have as well. If you want to ramp up the modern rustic coffee table vibe, you can select a metal base that will bring sharp contemporary contrast into play, but if you like to keep things strictly rustic, an organic log base is on offer as well. You can even ask us to build you this table out of a different wood, if redwood isn’t to your taste. It all starts with a conversation and we love hearing from you.

    Prepare for jealousy

    There’s no getting away from the fact that this is clearly a designer coffee table. It’s unusual, but also usable, stylish and tactile, which means that you should be ready for some serious envy from friends and family members. We can’t take responsibility for any jealousy that you might encounter, but we can promise to deliver you the coffee table of your dreams and totally free of charge too (within the USA).
