Decorating with reclaimed wood is all the rage with sliding barn doors, pallet headboards, pallet wood walls and farmhouse kitchen tables being super trendy and popular right now. Below, you will find 50 reclaimed wood furniture and decor ideas for living green that you can purchase on Etsy from various artisans all across North America or draw inspiration from for creating your own diy reclaimed wood projects.
If you are looking to decorate your home with unique, functional, eco-friendly and sustainable furnishings, reclaimed wood furniture is the way to go. Using reclaimed wood that has been salvaged and locally sourced from old buildings, fences, boats and railways is an eco-friendly was to re-use lumber that has already been harvested from our forests and prevents it from ending up in the landfill. Reclaimed wood in its natural state that has fallen naturally on the forest floor or has been cleared from roadway during a storm is also popularly used to make furniture.
One of the benefits of using reclaimed wood versus new wood is the age and maturity of the wood makes it more durable and stronger than newer, less mature wood. Old wood harvested from mature trees has already been through the process of contracting and expanding from being exposed to the natural elements resulting in a strong, durable wood that is less prone to split or warp.
Another benefit of decorating with reclaimed wood furniture and decor is that each piece is 100% unique and has lots of character from the different grain patterns, knots and burrows, nail holes, discoloration and uneven edges found in salvaged wood. Each piece of wood has its own story with a little piece of history that makes for interesting conversation.
The main eco-benefit to decorating your home with reclaimed wood furniture is that you are reusing deconstructed wood salvaged from demolition projects which contributes to a reduction of waste being thrown away. And it makes you a responsible consumer because you are not buying mass produced furniture that is depleting our natural resources which is often made in factories that have less than ideal working conditions for the workers. Buying handcrafted reclaimed furniture and decor from a craftsman helps support small businesses and families.
