If you follow residential design trends, you have taken note that granite has been everywhere over the past 30 years! It’s in your kitchen, your bathroom, your basement, and even your bar. Granite has been a desired element for years and there seemed to be no end to that trend, until now. Granite is out and wood is in, especially reclaimed wood, either barnwood or antique wood. This new natural element trend is growing in popularity and in use. Reclaimed wood furniture not only looks beautiful and unique, but it often tells a story about its origination and seasons of life.
These antique wood and barnwood elements are now used to create a centerpiece, or showpiece for the home, something that will be noticed and set apart, an item that elicits conversation and has that “wow” factor. Reclaimed wood can be used as one element of a piece or room, or can be used throughout the entire design. One of the hottest trends right now is to use antique or reclaimed wood as a countertop throughout the kitchen, or use it on the top to a custom designed kitchen island. While many homeowners may want a clean and streamlined look to their kitchen, those who love the reclaimed wood embrace the visual and physical inconsistencies found in a piece of antique wood, and relish in the “story” that the wood may tell, whether real or imagined in the mind of its newest owner.
Each Shenandoah Furniture Gallery creation begins with the selection of just the right antique barnwood, hand-picked from barns and outbuildings in and around Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley and Blue Ridge Mountains. This very special wood gives our furniture its strength, enhanced grain, rich color, and uncommon beauty.
At Shenandoah Furniture Gallery we design and build custom reclaimed wood furniture that will enrich your home. Each piece is has its own history and story, steeped in Loudoun County Virginia history. We invite you to come to our location in downtown, historic Purcellville to meet our craftsman and choose the reclaimed wood furniture that will become part of your home.
