Genuine Barnwood Furniture




Furniture made from reclaimed lumber is a great choice for rugged, beautiful and long lasting furniture. The materials come from old barns, sheds, and other buildings that are being taken down. Instead of just burning the wood it is used to make high quality furnishings that are made here in the USA. Barn wood furniture fits into many decor styles, such as log homes, cottage, farmhouse, lodge, cabin, and more. The old wood is dense and strong, from a time when trees were old growth and structures were made to last. Many companies make nice furnishings that are made to look like old barn board, but they are new lumber that is distressed and stained to look old. There isn't anything wrong with that, it still can be good quality. But if you want genuine barn board furniture then that is what you should look for. Typically you can tell the difference because the patina and look of the wood will tell you if the boards were old, reclaimed wood. The barn wood furniture that we sell does not have a stain finish, it simply has a clear coat to protect it and make it easier to clean. If you look on the underside, or inside of a piece of furniture you may be able to see that it is old wood. Sometimes it is stained a color from the side of a barn. There will be real nail holes and distress from the decades of use and exposure.

We just had many new pieces arrive at our Dublin, NH gallery. Some has already been delivered, but we have an amazing sideboard that is 6' in length with 2 drawers and two cabinets. Also just in is a 5' sofa table (both shown above) and a 3' bench. A bench with a back and under seat storage is also here in the gallery. Come see the beauty and quality of these furnishings. We can order in hundreds of other barnwood options as well as custom pieces. Stop by to view the full catalog of barn board furnishings.

We are located at 1327 Main Street, Route 101, in Dublin, New Hampshire.

Rustic Furniture...A sustainable Choice

Like any product, it is good to do your homework and see where and how a product was made. Sales people may make you feel like you are a bother, but that's they're problem, it's OK to ask questions. After all you are thinking about spending your hard earned money on something, you want to make sure it is a good investment.
They're are many rustic and Adirondack crafts people and companies out there and all will, of course, do things a bit differently. That is good because it gives the consumer many choices. The rustic furniture industry overall is very caring for the environment and for the quality of their products. Taking time and carefully crafting a durable product is the norm with the rustic style.
Typically, rustic furniture makers use materials that are readily available in their particular area, so the resources usually aren't being trucked all over the country. Twigs and saplings grow back very quickly after they are cut, so materials will be available at the same site in not too many years. Some rustic makers use dead standing trees, which is a perfect resource. The trees are dry and ready for building, and in much of the country these trees are fuel for wild fires which should be removed anyway. Some builders use trees and saplings that have been cut along roadsides or other areas being cleared. So, instead of being wasted they are reformed into a functional furniture item. Other rustic furniture makers may use wood they find on a walk or drift wood along the coast. Of course many are using a combination of these to get their raw materials. Sometimes recycled items and antiques are incorporated into furniture pieces as well.
Rustic and Adirondack styles like to leave materials as close to their natural form as possible, so there is much less energy being used for planing and other alterations of the wood. Plus it makes each piece unique in form.
For all of these reasons, rustic and Adirondack furniture is a perfect, sustainable choice. Great for you and your home and great for the environment!

Presentation at The Monadnock Rotary

This Morning I spoke at the Monadnock Rotary meeting, here in Dublin, NH. The group meets each week at the Dublin Community Church where they have breakfast and discuss the upcoming events of the chapter. Most weeks they have a guest speaker and I was asked by one of the members to speak to the group, about our business and rustic style furniture. The presentation was about half an hour long and I discussed my background and how I came to have a furniture business in the small town of Dublin. I gave my thoughts on the meaning of Rustic and Adirondack and what it really means, when it comes to furnishings. I talked about what we do and what we offer at Wilderness Creations and also about how we try to give back to our community.
The Rotary has 1.2 million members in over 33,000 clubs around the world. It was started more than 100 years ago and carries the motto "Service Above Self". Each local group works in their own community and on more global issues to help make the world a better place. I was honored to be this weeks speaker and appreciate the attentive members of the Monadnock Region Rotary.
