This beautiful barn wood bed starts with reclaimed wood that is 100 to 150 year old wood. The Midwest has thousands of barns no longer is use as they have been replaced with modern metal buildings. Many of the farmers loved their barns too much to tear them down so they just let they age gracefully as we are all aging gracefully. This creates an opportunity to repurpose this antique, weathered wood and turn it into something that will be used and cherished for decades to come.
This rustic barn wood bed is an example of what can be made from the salvaged woods when thought and consideration is given to "details." The details make the difference. Most barnwood furniture is primative and rustic and thus mostly associated with log cabins, but the details in this collection give it sophistication and refinement allowing it to transition into many different decors.
We are calling this new rustic line of 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 elegant rustic" and thus will fit nicely into cabin, cottage, ranch, mountain, Tuscan, Old World and even traditional home decors.
We (all the staff here at Woodland Creek) feel this design is really something special. Every now and then we will look at a new design and all agree it is a home run. Our entire staff loved this new design the minute it was set up. The layered reclaimed wood has 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 makes the detail pop out.
The furniture designer's use of a linear wood overlay design has similarities of what is found in homes and businesses in pueblos in Mexico or out west. But, the linear, squared vertical posts with its gentle sloping gable in the headboard mimics the roof line of a timber frame home. At least that is how the person who is writing this description sees it (smile). What do they say about art - "beauty is in the eye of the beholder"? Well, maybe you will see something different. We just hope you love what you see in this barn wood bed design as much as we do.
For now the Touch of the West Collection is just available in bedroom furniture designs, but soon it will be expanded to include coffee, sofa, console, sideboard & entertainment cabinetry designs.
As will all our rustic barn wood furniture designs, the Touch of the West Collection can be made custom sizes to fit your home. Need a special headboard height to accommodate a sloping roof line?
