Love the clean lines of mid-century design but not its mass production? Get the best of both with Modern Ark's one-of-a-kind furniture made from reclaimed wood.

Mid-century stylings meets century-old wood in creations by Modern Arks. This Tennessee-based designer sources everything from shipping crates to demolished barns and re-imagines them into chic coffee tables and credenzas. Hairpin legs add an industrial flair to these warm woods. As is the nature of reclaimed design, no two pieces are exactly the same. One step further, furniture made of barn wood are made to order and can be customized to fit your space. Love the crate, but don't always need a table? The crates' legs are fitted snugly but not screwed, so the top can detach unharmed.
