Kelly and Co. designed an amazing space for their client who loves to play music and invite exciting acts from all over the world to join him for events benefiting his music foundation. Also included in the space is this fabulous bar made out of reclaimed wood for kicking back between sets.
Recycling isn't just for cans. This mantel and fireplace were designed and constructed completely from reclaimed wood, adding an element of comfort and drama, while staying consistent with the rustic, shabby chic feel of the space.
Waste not, want not: Instead of heading to the lumber yard, more and more furniture designers are looking to the past for their materials. This Reclaimed Wood Kitchen Island, $475, from Herb’s Furnishings is one great example. Handcrafted of 100% reclaimed wood from Baltimore, Md., the island’s frame is crafted from old beams, and its shelves are reclaimed pine paneling. The butcher's block top is made of reclaimed hardwood flooring, which is sealed with food-safe mineral oil and beeswax. The island sits on leveling stems to ensure a flat cutting surface, and it includes a steel bar with S hooks for hanging pots and other utensils.
Give a plank of reclaimed pallet wood new life with a few silver nails and a handful of distinctive drawer pulls. The wood's natural weathering provides a rustic backdrop for sparkly bracelets and necklaces.
Reclaimed wood pieces from across the globe are balanced by soft, French-inspired textiles. Window coverings consist of printed linen cornice boards. The gates on the walls are decorated with original oil paintings of water reflections. The chandelier is made from reclaimed wood from an 1820s farmhouse in Maine and incorporates many inspirations: east and west, old and new, artistry and durability.
Reclaimed wood is used to create a rustic double vanity in this mountain retreat. Creamy neutral countertops are paired with metallic mosaic tile backsplash. Cutouts in the vanity add chic storage for towels.
A reclaimed wood post acts as a connection point for the island cooking surface and the zebra wood eating bar in this sleek kitchen. The variety of materials used adds interest to the contemporary space.
