One of the great things about the current trend for natural textures and surfaces is how beautifully it meshes with the materials used in sustainable design.
Case in point are the beautiful, reclaimed wood furniture pieces available through Redefine Home. By utilizing a greywashed finish on the aged wood, the Emma Dresser (above) manages to be very on trend, in an environmentally friendly manner.
This sideboard is a great example of how the new aesthetic for aged, unfinished wood lends itself so well to the eclectic interior, by providing a bridge between traditional styling and contemporary finish. In other words, it will look cool in the houses of both country mouse AND city mouse.
Although the linens are a bit flouncy for my taste, the reclaimed wood headboard is perfect! So often reclaimed wood beds are made in a very rough hewn, modernist manner, which, although stylish, has limited appeal. This headboard has a more classic feel, and is a great height to give a bedroom that dramatic presence.
Of course, it’s not necessary to get a new piece made of old wood to get the natural look. This Regency chair at Redefine Home was a flea market find, stripped down and then reupholstered. So elegant!
Oh, and full disclosure. That cute little dog? That’s Lily, and she used to hang out at my office from time to time when Redefine Home’s founder, Linsi Brownson worked for me. It makes me so happy to see that Lily, and Linsi’s Redefine Home, are both looking so stylish!
