A desk made of reclaimed wood is both beautiful and bearing meaning. This makes a desk like this a great addition to your home. When you consider buying one desk such as this, you need to pay respect to all the backgrounds behind it: its wood character, its character as a table, and its origins. The wood used in manufacturing the desk could be originating from everywhere: white oak from Europe, wood drifted in the shores in Indonesia or the peroba wood from Brazil. Each desk has its own unique history that adds to its overall characters. In turn, the reclaimed wood desk adds character to the room it occupies.
How to Choose Reclaimed Wood Desk
Purchasing one of the desks like this is tricky. But here are some guides to help you out.
1.Different is beautiful
If you expect such desks appear similar with one another, you would not be able to do so. There are no two desks of reclaimed wood made similar with each other and that is what makes them special. Things to appreciate from a desk like this include mineral deposits, tiny nail holes, pitting, remains of paint, tiny patches, knots, and the grains of the wood. Soak in all these things before you buy the desk. If you must, ask the maker about the complete story behind the wood made into the desk.
2.Character is built over the time
In nature, old trees oftentimes fight for survival among younger batch. In the process, the resulting wood is usually stronger and more durable. Desk made of reclaimed wood typically has a character that is not present in other tables made of other materials.
Reclaimed wood has rich colors as it ages. A sign that indicates the reclaimed wood has a strong history includes appearance of colors such as smooth cream, moody black, deep yellow, rustic brown, and dark red. Learn the wood’s history and it makes a great conversation piece with your guests later on.
4.Match the old with the new
Mix this kind of desk with others to create nuance and textures. Choose one that works for your house’s theme and for combining with other elements.
Desks made of reclaimed wood bring with them a sense of classic tone. However, this does not automatically mean that they are only good for houses with traditional undertones. Modern, sleek houses can benefit from these desk as well provided that you know how to mix and match elements.
A reclaimed wood desk is great for placement in a room that has little decorations. This is because the desk itself is already rich in texture so it is a focal point in itself.
