Soft Modern Furniture

What an unusual term to describe a style of furniture “soft modern furniture” - it is almost an oxymoron. The term never entered my vocabulary until one Saturday afternoon when a customer walked into our retail store and engaged one of the sales staff. This customer stated she had found us online, and after perusing our web site was excited to see we had a nice selection of soft modern furniture. Soft Modern Sideboard I immediately looked up and starting asking the customer questions as to which designs she liked. I wanted which designs she felt fell into the “soft modern furniture” category. After she had left, I took pause and reflected on her thoughts. I agreed. Indeed some of our designs were modern, but the use of reclaimed woods and natural woods did give them a “softer” more “earthy” feel. Just five years ago no one would have thought of combining linear furniture designs containing polished or brushed stainless steel with textured, distressed salvaged woods. Well, now this décor and style of furniture is popular, and this style of decorating does not appear to be a fad. I personally think soft modern furniture is a category here to stay. Soft Modern Bed with Drawers Why do I feel soft modern furniture is here to stay? Well, the world continues to become fast paced; all cities have major traffic issues; the news both domestic and international is a constant stream of negativity and most products are mass produced and made with mostly synthetic materials (i.e., plastics, resins, etc.). Or society is basically on steroids and growing at a rapid pace. Everybody is working longer hours in order to get ahead or [...]

How to Compliment Your Rustic Bar for the Ultimate Man Cave

Handcrafted Reclaimed Wooden Bar After a long day or week at work, you need a space where you can relax, enjoy a few beers and catch up on the latest game. Luckily, creating a comfortable zone for you and your friends doesn’t require too much creativity or effort. One simple way to add a little extra luxury to your man cave is to install a customized rustic bar. A customized bar can easily be the focal point of any man cave without looking like you tried too hard. It doesn’t get any manlier than a custom bar made from natural wood with log accents or one handcrafted from reclaimed barn wood. Another advantage of installing a rustic bar is that the more they get used the better they look.  It is really hard for your clumsy buddies to damage a top made from distressed barnwood or a solid slab of wood top.  The barnwood already has 100 years of character so a little more will only enhance the look.  A thick slab top can take years and years of abuse and then be re-sanded only to look as good as the day it was originally installed.  Just choose a style that fits your personality and provides all of the storage you need to keep a few cold drinks handy.  After you’ve decided on the type of bar that will fit perfectly into your new haven, there are a few extra things you can do to ramp up the manliness. Get the right furniture: Depending on the type and size of bar you choose, look for rustic furniture that is similar in size and style to keep your room looking pulled together. The ultimate [...]

Add Reclaimed Wood Furniture to Your Rustic Interior Design

Reclaimed wood furniture is growing in popularity around the country when it comes to home decor. The reclaimed wood that is used in the production of furniture is sometimes not what it claims to be, however. Many competitors are offering furniture that has a reclaimed wood look to it but comes from fresh cuts of lumber. The authenticity, durability, and history of the wood are all compromised! Actual reclaimed wood furniture uses wood found from sources such as old barns, factories, and warehouses that were built at least 100 years ago, meaning they have the age, character, and meaning all buried deep within the timber. For anyone who is avid about their history and their furniture, these are all very important features! The reclaimed wood furniture style is growing in popularity for several reasons: It looks and feels great and unique The rich history and tradition that are behind each piece of furniture They reuse resources, instead of requiring more trees to be cut for wood The physical characteristics of the wood are marked by higher quality and sustainability Why, you may ask, is it better to reuse the wood, especially if it is so old as it is? Well, the answer again lies in our history. The wood that was used over a century ago by the nation’s agricultural pioneers was harvested in a time when air pollution from the industrial age did not stunt the growth or quality character of new trees. The wood is stronger, healthier, and last much longer than the wood that is harvested from trees that are bred and cut down in the modern age for mass producing furniture. The reclaimed wood furniture that we use at Woodland Creek [...]
