Currently Loving: Reclaimed Wood in Design
One of the things I enjoyed most during my recent trip to New York City was how lovely and charmingly old everything is. Old like in Europe, meaning old but well maintained, timeless! As I sat in the sun-filled dining room at Prime Meats in Brooklyn, I overheard a gentleman telling another that the space we were in was a recent addition to the restaurant, and he went on to explain that they had used reclaimed wood for the floors and walls. The space felt so rich, the slight echo as our server walked to our table and away, the sun coming in through the skylight, the old table tops and chairs, the old window in the dining room in front of us, right then I fell in love with reclaimed/re-purposed wood like never before. Not only is it a more sustainable approach but it is truly lovely with it's charming weather and charm, isn't it? Here are a few lovely examples of reclaimed woods in Industrial and Interior Design.
