Reclaimed Wood Becomes the Norm

Reclaimed Wood Becomes the Norm

We have a great sister site dedicated to green ideas, but reclaimed wood furniture is becoming an important part of the larger home design market. With big retailers like Restoration Hardware offering these products alongside the normal wares, pieces made with reclaimed wood are being snatched up by more than just granola-crunching hippie mamas.

Many tuned-in types are getting a new sense of satisfaction from the outright or creative reuse of discarded items. With the constant availability of mass-produced things from international retailers like IKEA, lots people are forgoing the idea of slick perfection in favor of a hunt for pieces that show the wear and tear of a loving history. With prices nearing the mark of newly-processed lumber, reclaimed wood is quickly becoming a preference for designers and residents alike.
