This week, friend of Real Antique Wood, Beth Diana Smith, Owner and Principal Designer at Beth Diana Smith Interior Design, has taken over the blog. Be on the lookout for her appearance on The Morning Mill next month!
Old wood is imperfect. It bears the scars of hundreds of years of weathering and aging. It is infused with the grain and character that only comes with decades of growth in virgin forests. It has cracks, splits, holes, and even after it’s been baked in our kiln it will continue to morph and settle before your eyes. Antique wood has a soul, and it’s best not to contain it. Consider yourself warned.
We love that we get to bring reclaimed wood to different spaces and places. The Whole Foods in Morristown, New Jersey is chock full of reclaimed wood from our shop and we visited recently to check things out. Our white oak can be seen throughout the store from accent wall siding to signage. We love the backdrop that reclaimed wood provides to so much delicious food!
