In an effort to create sustainable environments, reclaimed wood is being used in a variety of inventive ways. At the moment, I am loving the use of reclaimed wood as wall panels. On a trip to the Stone Source showroom, I discovered the addition of reclaimed wood to their inventory. Stone Source teamed up with a family owned mill to create custom wood textures. And they are stunning! The pictures below don't do them justice. I just can't wait to use them in a project, especially the New England Hemlock Bearwood (see close up below).
Since Stone Source only sells to the trade, you will need to work with a designer in order to purchase their products. Another source for reclaimed wood is Elmwood Reclaimed Timber. They have an amazing selection. The following image illustrates their Elk Ridge Rustic paneling. I love this idea of creating a modern cabin feel within the home.
