Creating Your Own History: Reclaimed Tables Are History In The Making
In the land of “I want it now” from internet to food and even to furniture, mass produced items are the norm. From assembly line to show room, shopping cart (virtual or real) to eventually landing in our living room, furniture design and creation has become somewhat of a lost art form to some.
And then there are those of us that see value in furniture with history; a story to tell. We are the people who want to slow down, just for a moment and have handcrafted tables created just for us. We want the background of the wood infused into a table that is lovingly crafted using reclaimed wood from old barns or buildings that are nestled in the towns and places we live. These pieces of reclaimed wood furniture show off our sense of style and perhaps adventure while making an environmental statement. The two can go hand in hand.
These farm wood tables are not just for gathering around for the daily meal. While enriched with their own story of what the wood was before, where it was located and how it came to Shenandoah Furniture Gallery, it affords us the opportunity to make memories with friends and loved ones with each passing moment.
These tables are engrained in the holiday meal pictures, the Friday night wine and cheese parties and an evening game of cards while sipping on your favorite craft beer with your mates. The tables we create with reclaimed wood from around Northern Virginia are made to be statement pieces and handed down from generation to generation; passing its’ natural history and the memories created to each family member that has the distinct privilege to be part of this new tradition.
This is what we do at Shenandoah Furniture Gallery. We create the opportunity to make new memories from wood that has its’ own story. 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 memories.
