Knock, Knock, Knock On Wood!
Many of our manufacturers are brilliant with wood, good old fashioned wood. Some take architectural salvage and aged furniture and remake them into a beautiful new pieces; some companies are equally talented with new wood. One of the most interesting showrooms at January market in Atlanta that ignited my thoughts of this beautiful natural material was Go Home. This space is filled with reclaimed pieces, including a vintage ice cream cart and old medical cabinets. However, the most interesting pieces to me were wood!
These are a few of my favorite pieces from Go Home. I love the rustic look of all of these pieces, the first stool is the Axel and the second is called the Barrel. This Farmhouse Side Table would also make a great small bar cart.
In this room the coffee table is basically a piece of wood with legs. I’m sure it is quite heavy and not as easy to make as it looks, it gives the room a casual cozy feel!
This space is more refined with the wood of the chest and floor being finished. The dark hues are yummy!
In this workspace the designer used a mix of rustic and Mid-Century styles. The desk has clean lines that are slightly more modern while the columns are architectural salvage, the peeling paint gives them character.
This stunning wood wall is in a Tudor home redesigned by Steven Gambrel, the detail of the fireplace and paneling is breathtaking. The space is perfectly styled and many other wood pieces complement the beautiful focal point!
This is quite an entrance! The huge doors are a magnificent example of wood working, they are a polished contrast to the wild greenery!
I have seen this image many times and I am always attracted to the simplicity. I could not image that simple cut logs could be so tasteful but in an all white setting they become art!
So please, be inspired by the beauty of nature! Hardwood floors are always in style. I love benches and the many functions they serve and that is just the beginning. Keep your eyes wide and you never know when you may stumble across the perfect piece that you yourself can re-purpose!
