Small, Dark, and Handsome
What do you picture in your mind’s eye when you think of log furniture? For me, it’s honey-colored wood and the rounded profile of natural logs. But in reality, it is so much more. Stains, finishes, and varieties of wood…these can all contribute to unique differences from piece to piece.
Barnwood furniture is much the same way. Often one thinks of old, dried-out boards salvaged from an aged agricultural structure. While that can certainly be true, and some breathtaking pieces are crafted entirely from that repurposed lumber, barnwood furniture can be so much more.
A unique look results when barn wood is combined with other woods and materials. The colorful grain of black walnut in the Blue Ridge Rustic Walnut Night Stand flatters the aged character of barnwood. The legs and frame of dark wood complement panels and accents of rustic reclaimed timber. This nightstand may not be tall, but it is dark and handsome.
