Q. I love the look of old wood, but I have a very modern home. How can I incorporate reclaimed wood into my home?
A. Reclaimed wood is a true treasure from old ships, barns, mills, and commercial and residential buildings. Warm and rich with history, salvaged wood pieces can create a dramatic impact, blending history with modern home design. Wood with distinct age marks present a visual history, while enriching modern homes with softness, stunning texture, and beautiful color.
Reclaimed wood pieces are not only popular in structural elements, like ï¬‚ooring, beams, doors, and wall treatments, but are just as fashionable when used in home decoration or furniture. A reclaimed wood desk, table, headboard, mirror frame, coffee table, fireplace mantle, or set of shelves lends warmth to a room and infuses the space with a sense of history and charm that new materials lack.
The weathered look of reclaimed wood can give modern spaces a sense of history not found in new materials.
