Root Console

  • 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.

  • Creating a “Luxury Lodge” Look

    ...with natural materials, organic shapes & textures, and a palette pulled from the great outdoors.

    Today’s modern lodge aesthetic is a sophisticated blend of texture, color, and craftsmanship that is instantly welcoming and elegantly understated.  While the “Luxury Lodge” style is finding its way into everything from city lofts to little bungalows, for those of us lucky enough to live in areas where nature’s bounty & beauty are all around us, the look is a natural extension of our lifestyle.

    To pull this look together in your home, Woodland Creek Furniture’s interior designers suggest starting with your foundation (i.e., the floor) and literally building the look from the ground up.  In this way, you will create a layered look with a natural flow and ease. The key is to find balance between pattern & simplicity, texture & color.

    For a few thoughts on the perfect foundation we’ve reached out to the folks at New Moon Rugs, who’s Mesa Rug Collection sets the bar for the “Luxury Lodge” look, and asked them to give us their thoughts on how to choose the right rug to pull your room together.

    Look to your surroundings:

     

     

     

     

    Choose colors and design elements that complement the surrounding countryside, or the architectural elements used within the home.  That doesn’t always mean matching, however.  Sometimes the use of a bold color can enhance the richness of the materials in the room or pop against the palette of the great outdoors when put beside a picture window or glass wall.

     

     

     

     

     

    How is the room being used?

     

     

     

     

    When choosing a rug with large fields of solid color, consider a heathered tone for high traffic areas such as entryways and kitchens. Patterns, and color palettes with varied tones will help to hide dirt in between vacuuming.

     

     

     

     

     

    Choose materials that will fit the use.  High quality wool is nature’s performance material and will stand up to generations of parties, pets, and indoor picnics on cold nights.  Himalayan wools, like the Tibetan wool used in New Moon Rugs, have a high lanolin content making them naturally stain resistant and easy to spot clean with mild soap and water…  No chemicals or synthetics needed, which is in keeping with the natural vibe at the heart of the Luxury Lodge design ethos.

    Layer in furniture and accessories with natural elements

    Part of the allure of the lodge life is the deep connection with nature.  The finest luxury lodges bring elements of nature indoors in sophisticated ways.  Live edge wood, hammered copper, buttery leather, and natural stone are all excellent materials to introduce into the room in furniture and decorative accents.  Offset these with luxe, textural fabrics in upholstery, pillows, throws, and window treatments (furniture photos courtesy of Woodland Creek Furniture).

    Don’t feel boxed into a specific vernacular in your design

    Luxury Lodge encompasses everything from classic western motifs to clean modern design.  It’s not about a specific “look”.  It’s about a specific “feel”.  The goal is to create a welcoming environment for family & guests, surrounding yourself with the people and pieces that bring joy and have meaning to you. At its core, the Luxury Lodge design movement is about creating a space from floor to ceiling that celebrates nature, fine craftsmanship, community, and personal style.
