Reclaimed Wood in Design
Utilizing recycled wood is an elegant way to add sophistication and style to a home or commercial establishment. Uses of reclaimed timber range from small statement pieces to entire walls paneled with reclaimed wood panels. Distinguished residences and businesses feature floors, ceilings, exterior walls, doors, and roofing crafted from reclaimed lumber. These tasteful details add ambiance to a home by providing historical distinction. Not every residence can boast flooring or ceiling panels from vintage fencing! Every piece of reclaimed wood is unique and has a definite story to tell.
Several businesses feature reclaimed wood in their countertops, bars, conference tables, wall paneling, wainscoting, and exterior details. Establishments boasting reclaimed furniture and motifs distinguish themselves from their competitors while creating a refined, inviting atmosphere for their clients.
In view of recent environmental concerns, it is also essential to note that reclaimed wood is not only stylish, it is sustainable. One expert states:
Reclaimed wood isn’t grown on farms, which often cultivate only trees that grow fast, but aren’t supportive of an ecosystem. Yes, it represents a tree that’s been cut down, but at least it’s getting another life in your home.
Clearly reclaimed wood is not only distinctive but ecologically responsible to boot. Purveyors of reclaimed wood have cropped up all across the United States. On the East Coast, Maine Heritage Timber resurrects forgotten logs from the depths of the Penobscot River and crafts them into breathtaking, functional masterpieces of design. On the West Coast, Blacks Farmwood of San Francisco creates projects for Starbucks and Pixar from reclaimed redwood and fir. In the western mountains, Centennial Woods LLC transforms yesterdays fencing into modern “aesthetic accents” for today’s buildings.
