Why choose a reclaimed wood bookcase?

Reclaimed wood bookshelves can be made from a variety of different woods, providing the wood in question was not sourced from a newly felled tree. The most commonly used materials are beech, pine, oak and cedar, due to their durability and attractiveness. This variety of materials means that a reclaimed wood bookshelf can span a range of different aesthetics, from the light elegance of mid-century minimalism, to the stark drama of Scandinavian industrialism. It may be that you want a strong reclaimed theme across your interior, in which case you may wish to add side tables, chairs and even dressers that utilise reclaimed wood. Or perhaps you simply want to incorporate something different in your home; a statement bookcase that will catch the eye of your guests and start a conversation as it contrasts with your otherwise traditional furniture.The only limit is the creativity of the manufacturer.

Despite this variety of styles, there is one thing that links all reclaimed wood bookcases together: history. Every piece has its own unique story to tell, which will usually be written across its surface. The marks and scuffs from the wood's time as part of a school's ceiling beam, or an Edwardian sideboard, or even deck of a ship, will be left untouched in most cases; giving every bookcase its own particular character. Reclaimed wood bookcases are also some of the strongest available. This is because the wood chosen for their construction will have been carefully selected by the manufacturer, and any wood that would have been unsuitable discarded. This ensures the highest quality construction, from professional craftsmen. Reclaiming wood is also one of the most eco-friendly ways to make furniture. By shopping for reclaimed wood furnishings you are directly reducing the number of trees being felled. In order to preserve the history and charm of reclaimed wood furniture, it also undergoes very little treatment. Sanding back and a quick polishing are usually all that is required. Who knew buying a beautiful, strong bookcase could also make your home a little greener?
