What better way to embrace the farmhouse industrial trend than by purchasing furniture made from reclaimed materials?
Not only do you get the rustic look, you also get the character and history recycled wood and metal bring with them. Plus, reclaimed furniture is a sustainable choice since it prevents the need for new materials. Another bonus, reclaimed furniture is often handmade by local craftspeople, so buying your dining table, coffee table or shelving unit from an artisan keeps the money in your community and small businesses flourishing. If you have access to the materials and you’re the creative type, you can even make your own piece. Check your area’s buy and sell to see if someone has old materials or furniture you could repurpose into something else. Who knows, you could enjoy the process so much you may end up with your own reclaimed furniture business!
