Reclaimed Wood Table for the Winter Holidays

As you shop for something special to leave under the tree for your family, don’t forget about the most important person on your list: you! After a long year like 2020, you deserve to treat yourself to something new for the home, and there’s nothing more stylish than a reclaimed wood table. 

Reclaimed wood is a gorgeous addition to your home that works for any room. Whether you want a new coffee table for your living room or a dining table for your family’s Christmas dinner, there’s something for everyone. 

What is Reclaimed Wood Furniture?

Reclaimed wood is mature wood that has a story to tell. It comes from old-growth wood that’s recovered from historic mills, factories, and objects.

Here at Woodcraft, we honour this history when we transform reclaimed timber into gorgeous new furniture for the modern home. We handpick the best pieces with unique patterns, letting its old-growth charm inform how we design our work. The result is a handcrafted piece that creates a bold statement. 

Why Choose Reclaimed Wood Furniture This Winter?

If refreshing your home with a brand new piece isn’t enough to convince you, here are four reasons why choosing reclaimed wood is a great idea:

1. It’s Durable

Reclaimed wood was cut from mature forests. These trees had centuries to grow, making the wood durable and strong. 

2. It’s Unique

Reclaimed wood comes from trees that are now protected by anti-deforestation regulations. These laws prohibit today’s logging of older trees, as well as specific species of trees. 

Nowadays, most solid wood furniture comes from hardwood designated for logging. While these species are beautiful and durable in their own right, they look different from mature trees. As a result, our reclaimed wood pieces have a unique character you can’t duplicate.

3. It’s Eco-Friendly

The reclaimed wood we use in our furniture was cut centuries before the above regulations came into place. This gives us a guilt-free way to take advantage of a mature tree’s unique beauty. 

Using recovered mature lumber in our furniture also helps us tap into the circular economy and keep materials in use for longer. While we may be working with a tree that was harvested long ago, it’s now found a second life in your living room. 

4. It Has a Story to Tell 

With a look unlike any other table, your new reclaimed wood coffee table will inspire conversation over the holidays. It’s the perfect opportunity to tell them where the lumber came from, sharing how it may have lived a previous life as an old whisky barrel or a summer beam from a turn-of-the-century factory. 

Its old-world charm will capture your visitor’s hearts — and may even convince them to update their own tables!
