Beauty of Imperfection

Weathered furniture celebrates the beauty of imperfection, filling your home with character and a sense of history.

Designers are crazy about this trend, since weathered furniture works with so many decorating styles. With an aged look, these pieces often have an heirloom quality, as though they've been lovingly passed down over time.

When paired with more traditional elements, the wood's texture provides a beautiful contrast between elegance and erosion. Quite often, these pieces resemble antiques that have been well loved and worn over time. But unlike antiques, weathered furniture doesn't come with a "handle with care" label, only the strength and quality you expect from new furniture.

Weathered wood isn't for everyone—but we'd argue it comes about as close as you can get. Its unpolished look is perfect for the utilitarian spirit of industrial decor. It's equally stunning amidst coastal decor, especially pieces that feature light whitewashing or liming. From French country to shabby vintage, the list of decorating possibilities goes on and on.

Weathered wood can be used on contemporary frames to add an air of rusticity to this polished style. Some of the more modern furniture designs are made to look like reclaimed wood, which has a few notable differences. Reclaimed furniture uses material taken from barns and other outdoor structures. Restoring this wood is difficult and time consuming, and can yield a hefty price tag. Weathered wood maintains affordability by applying an aged look to new materials that are kiln dried to prevent warping and cracking.
