Reclaimed Furniture: Luxurious Home Decor

The Green Connoisseur has featured gorgeous eco-friendly furniture and reclaimed wood furniture several times, showing the luxurious side of 'green' home decor. Whether it's a vintage piece that has been reclaimed and put to use, or a new piece of furniture that has been created with recycled products - eco-friendly furniture can be luxurious and beautiful. Here are a few new pieces for you to feast your eyes on, all available at Urban Woods. The Wilcox Collection This bedroom set is clean and modern with straight lines and simple design. Created from both vintage, reclaimed wood and new pieces, this set is perfect for someone with a simple and modern taste. It could easily be softened by adding luxurious fabrics and throw pillows, and is versatile enough to work in any home or apartment. Created from a 'patchwork' design, the wood is framed and stained with a natural, water-based stain. The vintage wood has been finished in a low VOC acrylic. The Trousdale Collection This collection is whimsical and puts you in mind of a cozy bed and breakfast. Created from reclaimed wood, the Trousdale Collection features highlights of Kirei board. Kirei board is an environmentally sustainable design element, created from agricultural fiber. The collection includes the charming and beautiful bed, as well as the matching dresser and night stand. The Melrose Collection The Melrose Collection features a chunky design, with sturdy and beautiful reclaimed wood. This is an elegant collection that includes hints of modern design, but is lovable for the obvious history of the wood. The large club chairs feature comfortable and thick cushions, covered in organic cotton upholstery. The collection is completed with an over-sized coffee table, fully functional media center and an elegant open ended bookcase. The Palisades Collection This dining room collection is modern and beautiful, created from reclaimed wood, organic cotton upholstery and solid wood legs created from massive-sized beams. This collection features three chairs and a low bench which surround the gorgeous dining table - as well as a side table and a huge mirror to create the illusion of more space. This is perfect for a small apartment dining room and is sturdy enough to last as long as the room it's sitting in. All of these luxurious collections are gorgeous, and each one of them is created from reclaimed wood and eco-friendly products. I'd have to say the Palisades collection is my favorite of all, showcasing history within the modern and charming design. However, each of the collections from Urban Woods shows exactly how luxurious eco-friendly can be. Photo Credits:

Wonderful finds here! Also, I made an interesting discovery. Here’s an excerpt from an article I wrote about it this month…
Bring Out The YOU In Your Home Decor!
Bill Blass said, “Style is primarily a matter of instinct.” Decorating takes on a new meaning for each individual. Different tastes in decor mean different furniture, artwork and color palettes. So what is the rule of thumb for making your place zing if it’s not a certain style, pattern, or color?
Bring out the Y-O-U!
Make a statement and let your personality shine through! Add your zing to make it pop. Hang something personal on the wall with a few well-chosen accents-bold and beautiful. The trend for decor is becoming more and more personalized.
Whatever you want to say while decorating, say it with your own individual style. Put it out there for the world to see and don’t look back. Express yourself! When people enter your home they’ll shoot you a complementary smile, knowing it looks and feels sooooo perfectly like you. And no one can do YOU better.
