  • Good Taste Never Goes Out Of Style

    For a barnwood dining table with a rustic flavour, our Timber Frame Support Dining Table is impossible to ignore.  From the chunky proportions to the fully customizable dimensions, everything about this piece has been designed with you and your timeless taste in mind.

    A real talking point

    Have you ever seen a piece of furniture in person and found yourself drawn to it? Perhaps wanting to reach out and touch it, before asking more about where it came from? That’s exactly how anybody seeing your reclaimed barnwood table will feel.

    Delicately etched with 100's of years of American history, every timber has been selected for its stance and aesthetic appeal, before being brought together into a large statement table. We always choose the most structurally sound and appropriate reclaimed timber pieces for our exclusive designs. There is nothing sub-par or ‘pre-loved’ about barnwood, it is simply a beautiful material that has proven itself to be of the highest quality and ingrained with the most character.

    The top, gargantuan in both impression and gorgeousness, floats effortlessly on top of a simple wooden frame that speaks of a time gone by, when artisans knew the value of their skills and wanted to showcase them.

    Pride in our work

    We’re keen to return to an appreciation for craftsmanship, which is why each of our re-purposed wood tables are made to order, especially for you. Because nothing is ‘stock’ to us, we encourage you to consider being a little pickier and asking about a custom size, as it certainly won’t be too much trouble for us. If just a few inches could make all the difference between a handsome table and one that you cannot believe is yours, it would be silly not to take advantage of our workshop magicians.

    We make furniture for you, that’s our driving force. Whether you’re after a western style dining table, rustic coffee tables, real log vanity units or a reclaimed wood dining table, we are here to make your dreams come true and all from our USA workshops. Domestic production is something we are exceptionally proud to be championing, so we never cut corners during the design, manufacture or shipping of your once-in-a-lifetime investment.

    Your table, your choice

    As we’ve said, we make to order and customization is our specialty, so why not think a little more outside the box? You might look and the steadfast and sturdy design of this wonderful table and think there is little room for adaptation, but you can opt for an extending version, adding two 18” leaves. Add this to whatever size you want the main installation to be and you could find yourself capable of hosting banquets, never mind cozy family dinners!

    Finished by hand, to ensure a smooth, tactile piece of furniture that not only cries out to be used, but also loved and maintained, we know that you’ll fall in love with the  Timber Frame Support Dining Table during your first meal, if not when it is being unloaded at your home!

  • Family Furniture With Elegance And Charm

    The right dining table can transform what was just a place to eat into the heart of the home, with family and friends gravitating towards it for good times and memory-making. This notion was firmly in our minds when we designed our Modern Tuscan Dining Table and we think we’ve created the perfect centerpiece for any dining room that packs an aesthetic punch, as well as being a favorite family hang-out spot.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Chic Styling For Modern Homes

    You might think that dining tables are easy to design, after all, you only need a top and some legs, right? In reality, it’s the simplest and most understated finished products that take the most design expertise, especially those with a modern yet classic flavor, such as the Tuscan.

    An elegant dining table designed to be just as beloved during family meals as formal dining, it features unfussy lines and subtle curved legs to balance the rustic finish of the wood with contemporary chic. A truly transitional item, this is a refined dining table that can be installed in any style of home, amplifying either modern or rustic themes and providing a central gathering point.

    Built To Last

    You only have to look at the Tuscan to know that this is a formal dining table that has been designed and built to last but let us tell you a bit more about the construction.

    Each table comes with a 44” wide top, as standard, but many other sizes are available, as a custom option and when it comes to length, you have anywhere from five to ten feet play with. This is because we know that no two houses are the same, so the amount of space you have to dedicate to a dining table will be unique to your home only and as we make everything to your specifications, it makes sense to go the extra mile and built exactly what you need.

    In terms of finish, you can be as daring as you like. The standard finish is Antique Mahogany in a Natural Dark finish, but if you like to be more expressive with your statement furniture pieces, how about considering a one of our other options for finish or wood?

    In addition to the natural option, there are five rustic paint finishes that you can choose from, including red, blue and green. Each is distressed by a master craftsman, to give the appearance of an antique finish and the result is a spectacularly bold and beautiful items that will look as though it has been passed down through generations of your family.

  • Style To Stay Awake For

    As far as we can tell, there’s only one problem when it comes to designing and building breath-taking barnwood beds – you’ll want to stay awake for as long as possible, to appreciate your own fantastic taste!

    We Dream Of Barnwood

    What is it about reclaimed barnwood bed designs that make them so irresistible? Is it the sheer sturdiness of them? The aesthetic of over 100 years of history etched into every timber? Or simply the nod to more traditional furniture styles that creates a naturally comforting vibe? We think it’s a heady combination of all three elements, working together to create a bed frame that will last a lifetime and get even more beautiful with every scratch and knock that it gets.

    Standard Version

    Our Barnwood Mission Bed is special for more reasons than its good looks. Remember – beauty is only frame-deep in this case! The design was one of the first of our entire Barnwood Collection and as such, has a special place in our hearts. Yours too, it would seem, as it remains one of our most popular pieces of furniture and we know exactly why.

    Slim Version

    Quality You Can See And Feel

    You’ve heard the saying ‘as good as it looks’? Well this salvaged wood bed is as sturdy as it looks! Thick timbers have been chosen for their aesthetic value, as well as inherent strength, before being hand-sanded, to ensure smooth, tactile surfaces. This doesn’t remove any of the character though, it simply allows you the luxury of being able to touch every nick and wonder how it was created.

    The romance of Midwest history being etched into every frame surface is something we protect fiercely because to us, each of these beds is a piece of Americana art and what a privilege to be able to help create it! From ancient barns that have fallen into ruin come stunning bed frames that are worthy of the designer chic tag and there are plenty of ways to make your selection your own.

    Platform Version

    Furniture That Fits Your Life

    Antique barnwood beds are powerful, large statements that garner attention in any bedroom, which is why we always make sure that you can tailor your selection to be as in-keeping as possible. It can start with custom head and footboard dimensions and of course, includes a variety of different frame sizes as well, but there is another unique design element to be considered.

    Our Big Timber option allows you to take full advantage of chunky proportions and strength, but if you’re looking for a timeless aesthetic with a more delicate design touch, select our Slim Timber alternative. Just as robust but a little less stocky, you won’t be compromising on anything. What’s more, all of our frames come with side rails made from new timber, stained and finished to match the barnwood elements, to ensure your safety and support.

    Steadfast design, built to last right here in the USA, we think you’ll fall in love with our Barnwood Mission Bed and we’re sorry, but we take no responsibility if you lose sleep staying awake to admire it!

  • A Splash for Modernity for Every Bathroom

    Solid wood furniture can be crafted into a myriad of styles and one of the most eye-catching is a sleek contemporary look that makes the most of beautiful grain and the material’s natural adaptability. A modern vanity is a fantastic way to bring a touch of solid wood into your bathroom.

    Simple But Not Standard

    Whereas rustic furniture pieces seek to amplify the natural gorgeousness of solid wood, modern designs have to work that little bit harder. Stylish and unusual designs can have a habit of overpowering naturally aesthetic materials, which is why we take a less heavy-handed approach when creating modern items. Our Contemporary Wood Vanity is a perfect example of the understated and respectful design ethos that we are talking about.

    Made from a contrasting yet complementary combination of black walnut and ash wood, left in their natural hues, this contemporary vanity both stands out and blends in, making it ideal for any bathroom. Integrated shelves allow for easy storage and access, while a sleek cabinet guarantees hidden organization as well and the smooth top is ideal for mounting a stylish sink onto.

    The design of the vanity seems, at first glance, exceptionally simple and it is, but it’s anything other than plain. A strong and sturdy framework gives way to beautifully hand-finished surfaces and the black walnut doors elevate the finished look to something far more designer. What’s more, you can customize so that your finished vanity is a truly perfect fit for your space.

    A Personal Touch

    Available in a range of sizes from 42-60” wide, our natural wood vanity should work in almost any bathroom, but we can accommodate even the most unusual size requests, by going fully bespoke. Contact us for more information about this option. The regular dimensions allow this tactile piece of furniture to stand at 34” tall and a generous but unobtrusive 18” deep, giving you enough surface to be useful but not overpowering, even in a compact room.

    You can also choose the orientation of your finished piece, allowing you to decide which side would be most beneficial in terms of shelf installation. This, along with the promise that no two solid wood vanity units will ever be identical, thanks to the natural variation in solid wood, means that you can benefit from designer-looking furniture with an exclusive feel, at incredibly competitive prices.

    Crafted With Pride

    When you buy a Contemporary Wood Vanity from us, you are doing more than making a fantastic choice for your home – you’re supporting a dream and a domestic product. All of our furniture pieces are designed and made right here in the USA, by talented craftsmen that we are proud to have in our team. We make all of our items to order, just for you and we ship free of charge, to give you peace of mind that once you’ve clicked ‘add to cart’, your work is done.

    Sleek, eye-catching and the perfect blend of practical and aesthetic, our Contemporary Wood Vanity is a worthy focal point in any style of bathroom, so don’t delay!

  • When Art Meets Functionality

    There is some debate as to whether our Modern Root Console Table really is a piece of functional furniture, or whether it is an art piece that escaped from a gallery, as it garners attention at every turn. Stunning and dramatically different, it has the power to captivate an audience and elevate the interior design of any room and what’s more, it really IS a console table, not just a decorative addition.

    A masterclass in daring design

    Combining rustic and contemporary design features isn’t always an easy task, especially when bold materials are being considered, but we think that our modern console table has gone where few others have dared go before.

    The combination of a black linear metal casing, filled with reclaimed tree root segments is exciting, artistic and makes for a transitional piece of furniture that can be housed in any style of home. Picture this contemporary console table in a traditional lodge or cabin, adding in just a soupçon of modernity to amplify the rest of the heritage styling. Likewise, in a sleek, unfussy apartment, a rustic addition such as this would make for a dramatic centerpiece.

    Just when you think that this incredible item can’t get any better, we reveal that there are custom options available, for a cohesive home aesthetic.

    Created just for you

    None of our creations are mass produced and sitting in a dusty warehouse, which means that they are made to your exact specifications, once your order has been placed. With this in mind, you can inject a little creativity into your finished piece. Choose the right size for your home and the impression that you’re hoping to make, add a live edge top if you fancy one or tell us a specific purpose you have in mind for your new furniture. We are as adaptive as we are committed to quality.

    Available as an entertainment center with integrated shelving, with a wooden frame instead of a metal one and in a myriad of different dimensions, your needs take precedence when we build you a solid console table. We are looking to add more finishes to your list of options as well, so stay tuned!

    Made in Michigan

    If you decide that our teak console table is for you, you’re choosing an all-American product, designed and crafted in Michigan by our team of artisans. Not only will your metal frame be hand-forged, your section of root will also be carefully selected to fill your table proportionally, while the bare surfaces will be hand finished to bring out the natural beauty of the wood itself. The end result is a piece or art-furniture that can stand alone as a focal point in any room, or act as a functional addition, built for purpose and stability.

    We ask for patience when creating one of our Modern Root Console Table designs, as the root sections, in particular, can require adequate sourcing time. We will keep you updated as to timescale, but please remember that this is an artisan item that we don’t rush, in order to guarantee your satisfaction.

  • Stylish Touches Beneath the Surface

    Imagine that your home is a perfectly curated blend of modern design features with classically beautiful wood added in for balance and warmth. Now try to find handcrafted combination furniture pieces that marry the two worlds together, within a designated budget. What would once have been an impossible task is now as simple as entering the Woodland Creek Furniture website.

    When two worlds collide

    Designing a contemporary dining table that can join eye-catching metal shapes with natural wooden elements might sound easy on paper, but in reality, it takes an expert hand and a keen eye for furniture trends to get it right. The wood needs to be the star of the show, but without being so flashy as to turn the finished article into a garish installation, while the metal needs to bring just enough modern flair without taking over. It’s a tough balancing act.

    We pondered over these issues and finally, our Contemporary Rustic Plank Dining Table was born, complete with various iterations to guarantee seamless integration into any home. We think you’ll love the finished design of this striking yet understated modern dining table, so let’s talk about some of the details.

    Carefully considered touches

    Say the words ‘stainless steel dining table’ and you’ll probably start picturing something cold, uninviting and stark, but with the addition of a live edge wooden top, a metal table base can be an incredible design feature. You can even choose your finish when you buy from us, as we can mount your top onto a brushed, polished or even black metal base. There really is no compromise needed in terms of your wider interior design aesthetic.

    When it comes to the top, you have a wealth of options to choose from. With five wood varieties on offer, your finished live edge planked slab will create an effortlessly soft rustic dining table that exudes tactile charm and timeless elegance. You can also upgrade your top to a bookmatched black walnut finish, guaranteeing a perfect symmetry and strong grain detailing.

    Perfect for any setting, from urban lofts through to cabin retreats, this is a hybrid design that truly can please all of the people, all of the time.

    Made especially for you

    We are blessed to work with some of the finest craftsmen in the industry and as such, no two pieces of furniture are ever the same and nor are they pre-made and ready to ship. Why? Because we want to offer you the chance to really customize your purchase. We offer a number of ‘standard’ sizes but can make your dream live edge dining table to any specifications. By retaining this level of flexibility, we are able to give you the exact table that you want, compromise-free.

    Choose your wood, choose your base finish and tell us what size you need - we can make it happen for you. Made in the USA and with free shipping included, we want you to enjoy the VIP experience of ordering a piece of domestically produced designer furniture that will last you a lifetime and catch everybody’s eye.

  • Simplicity with A Twist

    Don’t be fooled by the apparent simplicity of our Modern Natural Edge Black Walnut Dining Table, as it contains plenty of designer elements that are so seamlessly interwoven into the design that none shouts above all the others. The end result is a harmonious and elegant piece of furniture that will be a treasured focal point in any dining room, for years to come.

    Bringing out the best in the materials

    It takes skill and a practiced hand to be able to combine rustic touches frequently associated with solid wood dining table designs with smooth contemporary detailing, but we’ve managed it. Starting with the top, we take reclaimed black walnut that has been professionally kiln dried and fashion it into a shapely surface that allows the live edge of the wood to speak for itself. Amplified by the natural striations of the grain, the non-linear sides allow for a pared-back aesthetic that is sharply contrasted by what is happening underneath.

    In order to create a hybrid modern natural dining table with a rustic live edge, steel has been added to the base, but not in the way that you might expect. These are no ‘veneers’ of sheet metal, they are solid inlays, built into the very fabric of the support system, for a sleek transition from warm wood to chis steel. The final effect is striking yet subtle.

    A modern table, finished the old-fashioned way

    Wood is a responsive material and the move love it gets shown, the better, which is why our team of master craftsmen finish every one of our natural edge dining table designs by hand. Having taken the time to ensure the perfect level surface, the wood is then treated to four coats of high-quality clear coat which not only seals and protects the top from stains, it also allows the rich beauty to shine through. Walnut dining tabletops are so stunning that it would be negligent to finish ours in any way other than by hand, so when yours arrives, you’ll know that it has been gently coaxed into revealing every beautiful variation in the grain, ready for your home.

    Make it your own

    Despite being a hugely popular design, the Modern Natural Edge Black Walnut Dining Table is not a ready-to-ship item, with each piece being made to order, to exact specifications. We know that no two homes are the same and as such, neither are dimension requirements, which is why we take a more holistic approach to the ordering process. You can select the ideal length and width for your home and we will make it, right here in the USA, with only you in mind. When completed, we will then ship it, with no charge, to anywhere within the Contiguous 48 states.

    Here at Woodland Creek Furniture, we don’t believe that in anything less than a bespoke service, so whether you are looking for a live edge table or a contemporary bed frame, we want to make your design ambitions a reality.

  • Dining Furniture with An Edge

    Even the most talented of chefs will struggle to make food the star of the show with one of our Modern Rustic Live Edge Dining Tables as the centerpiece of a dining room furniture set, thanks to the heady combination of sleek, contemporary supports and paired back natural elements.

    Classic design touches

    When it comes to timeless rustic design features, nothing beats a kiln-dried slab of gorgeous natural wood, with the live edge preserved. What’s more, this iconic feature can be the focal point of any number of furniture styles, including a modern dining table, when partnered with the right legs.

    Our Modern Rustic Live Edge Dining Table is the best of both worlds – the classic live edge top that everybody loves and the modern legs that make the piece come together as a whole and stand out from the crowd. But don’t go thinking that this is an off-the-peg option, as everything can be tailored to your exact specifications.

    Your table, your way

    At the start of the ordering process, we ask you to tell us what you want by offering a choice of black walnut or cherry for the tabletop. We can also create a book-matched black walnut top, for that seamless symmetry that effortlessly elevates a contemporary dining table into the realms of designer chic.

    With your wood selected, your planks are then specifically cut and dried to order, in line with your size requirements, before being expertly joined by one of our master craftsmen before being finished with a minimum of four coats of protective clear coat. Sealing in the tabletop’s beauty and amplifying the natural grain of the solid wood, this hand-finishing allows your table to be given the fully bespoke touch, resulting in a unique piece of furniture crafted in between six and eight weeks. This includes the book-matched walnut dining table option.

    Standout touches

    It can’t have escaped your notice that the legs on this table are something special as well. Rarely can the supports of a modern dining table rival a solid wood top, but in this case they really do.

    Unfussy and  linear metal supports, finished in black, have been designed to perfectly house a section of organic root each, therefore book-ending the table with eye-catching and one-off installations. No two tables can ever be identical, thanks to the natural variation in the materials being showcased and what’s really shocking is that this design can integrate itself into any home décor scheme. The beauty of the natural wood makes this an ideal addition to any rustic property, but with such striking design touches, even minimalist homes will be perfectly placed to showcase this design.

    Available to order in custom sizes, for millimeter-perfect dining room design, the Modern Rustic Live Edge Dining Table has been created with your upmarket home in mind. From cottages and lodges through to ranches and cabins, no wood-loving home is complete without one of these statement pieces as a timeless focal point.

  • Traditional Style Built to Contemporary Standards

    Don’t fall into the trap of letting your bathroom be the interior space where you let your design credentials slip! It can be so easy to simply plump for the basics, because this isn’t a room that you spend huge amounts of time in, but when it’s remarkably uncomplicated to inject some fabulousness, just with your choice of vanity, you’d be crazy not to.

    Invite wood into your bathroom

    There used to be a school of thought that wood and bathrooms don’t mix, but when you install quality, purpose built bathroom storage furniture into a moisture-rich environment, there are no negative consequences to worry about. Even if the wood vanity being created is more on the rustic side.

    Our Heritage Collection takes reclaimed wood and gives it a brand new lease of life as a piece of furniture that will last you a lifetime, while building on the vintage feel by including traditional carpentry mastery. In the case of this stunning barnwood vanity, you’ll find hand carved wooden door hinges. Not metal, wood, to bolster the old world feel of the piece as a whole. The perfect finishing touch is a hand forged metal latch that completes the aesthetic, without detracting from all that wonderful wood.

    The beauty of reclaimed

    Why choose a reclaimed wood vanity over something more contemporary? Simple. It has so much more character! This wood has already enjoyed a functional existence, with unique nail holes, cracks and saw marks to prove it. In short, no two items will ever be identical, regardless of the design or craftsman that makes it. That elevates your furniture to new heights instantly and allows your space to always be unique.

    The simplicity of our Reclaimed Barnwood Vanity allows the gorgeous material to step forward as the star of the show. A fussier design might have overshadowed the rich hue of the vintage wood, but here, there is no option but to stand back and enjoy the piece as a cohesive whole. Better still, there isn’t a single style of home that this would look out of place in.

    Perfect for every home

    Any western-style home, rustic interior design scheme or actual log cabin would make a perfect home for this beautiful vanity unit, but don’t discount more modern homes either! In a minimalist chic bathroom, adding one piece of eye-catching dark wood furniture will help to heighten the bright finish everywhere else. You can complete the vanity with a modern sink and faucet, to balance the final aesthetic too, choosing the position of the sink and customizing your overall vanity orientation with our drop-down menus.

    Thanks to the simple look of the Heritage Collection, you can experiment with accessorizing and building a more complete home furniture set. From reclaimed wood mirrors to dressers, coffee tables and everything in between, it doesn’t make sense to keep such wonderful pieces hidden away in your bathroom alone, so why not experiment with a wider rustic design aesthetic?

    Solid as a rock

    Kids have a habit of being a little less than gentle when it comes to their beds, which is why sturdy thick wooden beams are the right choice. You’ll find no laminate or veneer here, with only solid cedar being put to expert use to create a bed frame that you can depend on. Adding an aesthetic touch, the rough sawn finish amps up the rustic vibe, making it ideal for not only your home, but also a log cabin or rural hideaway.

    Even better is the fact that the solid wood bunk bed frame is so strong, adults can sleep comfortably in it as well.

    Amazing value
