This rustic barn wood end table starts with reclaimed wood that is over 100 years old. Mid America has thousands of antique barns no longer is use as they have been updated with newer metal buildings. Many of the farmers loved their barns too much to tear them down so they resided to let them weather away over time. Now that the design community has figured out that worn, weathered wood has rustic charm and character - this creates an opportunity to repurpose this antique, weathered wood and turn it into rustic furniture that will be used and cherished for many decades to come.
This rustic barn wood end table is an example of what can be made from the reclaimed woods. We are calling this new line of rustic furniture the "Touch of the West Collection”. The wording is perfect as it has just a subtle hint of western furniture design, but not enough to put it solely into this category. It is also "refined rustic or sophisticated rustic" and thus will transition nicely into cabin, cottage, country, ranch, mountain, Tuscan, Old World and even traditional home decors.
We (all the staff here at Woodland Creek) feel this barn wood end table design is really something special. Every now and then we will look at a new design or collection and all agree it will be popular. Our entire staff loved this new design the minute they saw it. The layered weathered woods have varying gray and brown tones and is heavily textured. These accent details contrasts the more even brown hues of the barn wood underneath. This combination of colors and varying depths make the detail of the design pop out. For this collection the details make the difference. The details set it apart for our other barnwood sofa table designs.
The furniture designer's use of a linear wood overlay design has similarities of what is seen in architecture in Mexico or out west.
