Reclaimed Farm Tables

The look of reclaimed wood when used on almost any furniture design, from stools and chairs to frames and bookcases, adds an extra touch of character, but there is something extra special about the use of reclaimed wood when building a beautiful, large dining table. The imperfections and tones of the wood create a beautiful aesthetic and the strength and durability of the aged wood create a functionality that is nearly incomparable. For some of the most beautiful reclaimed wood tables in Charlotte contact the folks at 2nd Story Wood Co. at 2ndstorywood.com.

Rustic Barndoors

If you want to add an extra dimension to an entryway in your home than there is no better option than a barn door. Barn doors are not as easy to come by as they used to be, nor as cheap, but you can find them at a variety of places, from antique consignment stores and places like Restoration Hardware to the source itself: country farms with barns. Whichever way you find yours (and choose wisely) once you add it to your entryway with a classic sliding hardware kit, your room undergoes quite the dramatic change – an artistic quality no matter if the door is open or closed.

Rocking Chairs

Nothing reminds you of the South more than someone reading a book on the front porch, sweet tea in hand, soaking up the warm Spring air, all the while rocking to and from in a fine rocking chair. There is something nostalgic and enviable about that image. If you are interested in purchasing one of the finest rocking chairs we have ever seen, check out the works of Shamrock Wood Studio. Michael McKee’s fine woodworking combines precision with amazing lines and surprising functionality and durability. Visit Shamrock Wood Studio online at www.shamrockwoodstudio.com.

Antique Cupboards

Cupboards bring an old fashioned touch to today’s modern home. They can be painted or refinished to match your home settings. Beautiful chabby chic styles have gotten very popular of late. So too have the classic antique pie safes with the punched tin. No matter which you choose to accomplish your country/farm look you can’t go wrong. There are several great places in Charlotte to locate a fine antique or chabby chic antique cupboard including Sleepy Poet and Nadeau, both on South Boulevard.

Farmhouse Sinks

Farmhouse sinks are the centerpiece of traditional kitchens. They act as both a statement piece that just begs for conversation, as well as a functional piece due to their large size and single trough. If you are going for an authentic farmhouse or country-style design aesthetic this is truly a necessity. Majestic Bath | Kitchen And Bath Showroom on Sharon Amity Road in Charlotte is a good source for beautiful sinks.
