Vermont Farmhouse Tables are exploding in popularity, not only in New England but all across America. Many artisans working throughout Vermont specialize in reclaiming and rejuvenating antique barnwood and transforming it into artistic dining tables, coffee tables, extension tables, cupboards, buffets… even beds. The result is unique, custom made furniture filled with warmth, charm and American history.
And farmhouse tables aren't just for country decor. Interior designers and home owners are discovering the authenticy that real American barnwood brings to modern metropolitan homes in Manhattan, Boston, Washington, DC and even as far away as Los Angeles. Apartment Therapy, for example is a good one for showcasing some of the best interior designs that combine traditional farmhouse tables with modern, contemporary chairs.
We've created a Reclaimed and Rejuvenated Pinterest Board to display some of the interior design ideas we're seeing for Vermont Farmhouse Tables handcrafted from antique barnwood. Check it out and let us know what you're doing with these unique, custom made pieces of Americana.
Handmade Vermont farmhouse tables are a good reflection of the creative and frugal nature of New England's most passionate Yankee craftsmen. If you've driven through our Green Mountain state lately you've probably noticed the sad demise of some of our historic barns and buildings. Over 200 years of wind and rain and snow have left these antique treasures in desperate need of rebirth.
Lucky for them, Vermont has many talented craftsmen who've taken on the mission of reclaiming the old barnwood boards and timbers and milling them into beautiful farmhouse tables. "Old wood – new life!" as our friend and expert craftsman Raphael Groton says.
Can you imagine the amazing qualities of wood that make it as beautiful, strong and durable today as it was 200 years ago? And even after standing out in the rain and snow all that time?
