  • What is modern rustic furniture design?

    It sounds like a misnomer; however, furniture really can be a blended hybrid of both modern and rustic tropes, themes and stylistic touches. What’s more, it really works! Far from diluting two very different styles, it actually brings both together in perfect harmony; allowing more people with a variety of interior schemes to see and experience the joy. Lets see all the was rustic and modern can combine in modern furniture design. 

    There are lots of ways to bring old and new together; but, when it comes to solid wood furniture. We have a few favorite techniques for creating a contemporary but classic vibe! We’re going to tell you a little bit about them, right now.

    Reclaimed wood, in a new way

    reclaimed wood for modern home design Wood Beam Coffee Table

    We’ve all seen and admired gorgeous traditional pieces, made from the finest reclaimed timber and there will forever be a place in our hearts and homes for them. BUT, using antique timber to create items; that are more contemporary in finish, with cleaner and unfussy lines, makes for an incredible contrast. Picture some wall shelves. Now imagine they are simple, linear and with no detailing at all, but floating and inescapably modern. Finally, imagine them being made from roof timbers from barns over 100 years old. That’s a striking image but one that works, don’t you agree? What’s more, shelves like this would work in literally any home. A beautiful way to have a modern furniture design!

    Classic designs with less fuss

    Take a classic piece of furniture and just simply dial it back a little in terms of the extra details and you have a modern rustic reimagination. You can literally do this with anything, from sofas to blanket boxes, wardrobes and even beds. By negating those fancy flourishes, you instantly embrace a more contemporary vibe; even if you craft from reclaimed timber or apply a vintage style stain to new wood.

    Bucket list pieces in interesting finishes

    We love creating pieces that allude to sought after items, but with a freshness that is unusual. For example, a stylish coffee table is a must for many people, so we have created a number of super contemporary designs that retain all of the functionality of standard tables, just with some eye-catching nuances. We particularly enjoy using different tones of wood together; to make a tonal and striking end result that manages to remain unfussy.

    Multi-material designs

    Modern and rustic go together like wood and stainless steel. And we should know, because we combine them all the time! With a timeless design in place, mixing materials is an easy way to ensure that both modern and rustic tropes are given equal priority; to create a harmonious new hybrid. That’s why you’ll find some incredible solid wood tables but with polished stainless steel or gold legs in our portfolio. 

    Sometimes, combining things that should, technically, be at odds with one another creates the most interesting results. We know we have no intention of leaving modern rustic design behind. So why not think about if it could work in your home?

  • Wow-factor walnut for your living room

    Were on a mission to prove that we aren;t a one-trick pony here at Woodland Creek Furniture. Yes, we always create exciting, beautiful solid wood furniture, but we often veer towards a rustic or traditional style. That’s all about to change though, as we showcase our stunning Modern Natural Asian Walnut Coffee Table.

    A Simple Modern Walnut Coffee Table!

    We’ve kept the design simple but bold here, working with stark contrasts and defined shapes! Shapes that come together to create a contemporary vibe that is impossible to ignore. Let’s dive in and look at the details. First, we have the black base. Understated and easy to camouflage, it performs how you want it to without disrupting the rest of the table. Then we come to the top. Continuing on from the black base, the legs sweep up and over the apex of the surface to create an incredible cross motif that is interspersed with chunky natural walnut pieces and honestly? We are a little obsessed with the overall to the modern asian walnut coffee table

    We wanted to create a rectangular table to maximize storage and surface area potential; even in a small piece of furniture! However, we had the foresight to offer two widths as well. Whether you need a 48” or 60” version, the finish will be exactly the same; as will the 19” height that makes for a perfect living room addition. Essentially, this will be a low profile, silky smooth centerpiece that catches the eye; or, melts into the background as much as you like.

    Practicality with your Coffee Table

    Now, let’s talk about some practical issues. Firstly, we implore you to use appropriate coasters on this piece. Though we finish with a protective clear coat. Drinks, both hot and cold, can leave marks on beautiful Asian walnut and prevention is always better and easier than cure. Gentle regular cleaning and polishing is recommended and no shoes people! Save the feet-up seating position for the flatpack pieces, as this deserves a lot more respect and care. We do know it’s just a coffee table; however, it’s an investment piece and something you’ll love for years, so let’s be kind to it. That being said, Asian walnut is a great hardwood that is naturally resistant to marking! So, you don’t need to worry beyond measure!

    In a bid to make your decision to treat yourself even easier (who can actually say no to a table like this?); we’ve also included free shipping! If you live in the contiguous 48 states, we will organize reliable and safe logistics for you. So that, we can deliver your new coffee table curbside in perfect condition. No need to buy two or more items here and we should be ready to ship within two weeks of your confirmed order, even if you choose to finance through our transparent partner, Bread.

    Coffee tables don’t need to be purely perfunctory or a compromise in terms of aesthetics either! So, come over to the modern side with us and see if we could disrupt your interior scheme a little with this style.
