43 years of fine solid wood furniture
You never quite realize how much stuff you own until it’s time to move, and then you start to wonder why you bought half of it in the first place. Moving can put your life into perspective and it can be a great chance to re-evaluate the possessions you’ve accumulated over the years, get rid of the things you no longer like, and revivify your home with some beautiful new pieces.
Sometimes it will be obvious what you’re going to bring with you and what should head to the Salvation Army. If you’re downsizing to a condo or a smaller home, you’re going to have plenty to cull. The living room may be configured differently and you’re going to have to find a smaller entertainment unit or invest in a smaller sofa. However, if you’re having trouble deciding what to keep and what to leave behind, books like The Joy of Less and The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up (by Marie Kondo) can help you evaluate your things and determine what’s worth keeping.
While the joys of having less may bring simplicity and tranquility to your mind, you’re still going to need something to sit on, a place to display those books that survived your purge, somewhere to fit the television, and everything else you use to furnish your living room. You just want every piece to spark a little something special in your life, while you trim off the excess junk that looks worn, ugly, or simply gets in the way in your new home.
Solid wood is an exceptional material in furniture and you can introduce so many different kinds of atmospheres with it, whether you want the winter-friendly hominess of dark and reddish browns, the stateliness of ebony, mahogany, or New York black, or French country whites and greys. Not only is solid wood a durable and lovely material, but the people who work with it like our craftspeople at Woodcraft take pride in their trade. We use old-fashioned techniques, making every piece by hand. We find inspiration everywhere; for example, our Turnbuckle TV unit has its origins in salvaged work benches of woodshops and garages. With cabinets for your DVD or Blu-Ray library and shelves for electronics, it’s ideally suited as an entertainment unit that will easily fit heritage homes.
