Investing in reclaimed furniture is a good idea both for your home and for the environment too. Since handmade reclaimed wood furniture uses materials from other discarded/used sources of wood, it not only reduces the demands on our environment for more of natural resources but also makes a positive and much needed contribution towards waste reduction. All the reclaimed wood has been responsibly salvaged from old barns, floor boards, boats, furniture, wine barrels and the list is endless. GAURI KOHLI® brings to you some of the most stylish, shabby chic reclaimed wood furniture, handcrafted by artisans in rural Rajasthan, India.
With a growing demand for unique and high quality home décor, reclaimed wood furniture has never been more popular. Reclaimed furniture gives old and unwanted materials a new lease of life, so each piece is individual and will add a touch of timeless character to your home or office. It’s also a sustainable choice for those who want to reduce their environmental footprint without compromising on style.
All wood has natural characteristics that make it such a beautiful material to build furniture with. However, the surface of reclaimed wood is naturally aged and weathered for a totally unique texture that cannot be duplicated on new wood.The nature of reclaimed wood means pieces can have a few ‘imperfections’ such as an uneven surfaces and marks. Signs of a previous life give reclaimed wood a certain charm that you can’t get from new timber. The unique look of old wood, whether it’s a beautiful grain pattern or old nail holes, will bring bags of character into your home. What’s more, each piece has its own history and story of where it came from.
Reclaimed furniture adds a unique, lived-in vibe to a room, but it’s important to choose the right style to suit your interior. From classic to contemporary, there are many different looks available. For example, reclaimed pine or elm combined with metal has a rustic, urban vibe that makes a perfect addition to an industrial-inspired interior. On the other hand, reclaimed wood with a white painted finish will add a shabby chic look to a country cottage style interior. The rich texture of reclaimed wood blends perfectly with the bold wooden color for creating the much desired rustic appeal.
