Barnwood furniture is more popular than ever these days. We understand why. For decades, Van Gorders’ Furniture has specialized in this unique style of heirloom quality rustic furniture.
You’ll find barnwood furniture for every room of your home in all three of our spacious and welcoming showrooms. We offer pieces such as dining tables, bed frames, dressers, and bars.
The Barnwood Furniture Story
It’s interesting to note that a selection of the quality American-made rustic furniture that we carry is constructed from salvaged old growth barnwood timbers reclaimed from structures out west. Each piece of rustic barnwood furniture tells a story of America’s history. Materials with the right look and quality are handpicked and recycled into beautiful furniture that carries timeworn greys and brown tones, saw marks, nail holes, exposed joinery, and metal work that makes it one-of a-kind.
Back in the day, when the barns were first constructed, a 2 x 4 actually measured 2 inches thick, and the tight-grained wood from ancient trees cut on a circle sawmill maintained the tell-tale half circle marks from the blade. Those kinds of quality timbers aren’t available in the new lumber produced today.
Heirloom Quality Barnwood Furniture
Reclaiming old growth timbers to construct rustic barnwood furniture produces bold, sturdy pieces that are built to last. Owning a piece of barnwood furniture ensures that you will have something beautiful to pass on from generation to generation.
Each piece is unique, with a natural patina that only Father Time and Mother Nature can create. Support beams that once sustained the weight of the season’s hay stocks are transformed into massive dining room table legs or bedposts. Antique roof trusses and siding boards are reimagined into doors, drawers or table tops.
Bring the Outdoors Inside
At Van Gorders’ Furniture, we maintain a deep respect for the majesty of the great outdoors as well as the many fine traditions that are part of our nation’s past.
Stop in to any of our welcoming showrooms — in Honesdale and Milford or at Lake Wallenpaupack, in Pennsylvania — to experience the beauty of barnwood furniture firsthand.
