Mix Rustic withtapped-maple-table_03 Modern for a Tastefully Trend Inspired Home

Rustic mixed with modern will be a major trend in 2015 as predicted by TODAY Home. The author, Amy Eley, mentions mixing weathered woods with modern accents, and even points to a table found on Pinterest that looks much like our very own Vermont Tapped Maple Accent Table. We’d have to agree with this trend prediction as the fusion reclaimed wood and metal has been gaining popularity all year. Our Vermont Tapped Maple Accent Table is a great starter point for bringing in a chic and subtle part of this trend into your home!

It is made with carefully selected and hand-made from Vermont Sugar Maples, and are crafted to preserve the natural beauty of the wood.

The color variations appearing in the center of the table top and radiate out showing decades of maple sap tapping. These details are further highlighted by the natural steel hairpin legs, which offer a beautiful contrast to the rustic appearance of the wood itself.

With its smooth finish, live-edge style and unique imperfections, this accent table provides a great conversation starter to any home, as well as a sliver of vermont history.

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.
