Combining Reclaimed Wood with Steel

022810-012-bourbon-board-coffee-table-ews.jpg An aspect that has been near and dear to our company and our designs is the material that we choose to create them…..Steel.  We believe in the Beauty, Strength and Sustainability of Steel.  We are now embarking on the use of another material…. Reclaimed Wood.  We feel that the reclaimed wood also has Beauty, Stength and Sustainability.

The Steel Appeal has sought out houses that have lived out there life as a structure but what we and others are finding and embracing is that the material used to build the structures is still good and able to be used to create other “structures”; in our case Furniture.   

When working with the reclaimed wood, it is an amazing feeling to think about the life it has lived up to this point and the new life that we are giving it.  We think that our customers will have the same feeling as the Furniture is used in their homes and in their lives.

We have reclaimed wood from two sources so far, a house in Chesnee, SC (left)that was built in the 1880′s and also a house that was built in Floyd, VA (right) in the early 1900′s.

These structures may have been viewed as eyesores by some or something that just needed to be burned down by others.  To us we see it as a source for material that can be used along with Steel to become beautiful pieces of Furniture.

Please let us know if you have ideas that include reclaimed wood and steel and in the meantime we will be busy producing pieces of furniture that we hope you will enjoy.

Dining Room Tables

[SinglePic not found]We at The Steel Appeal enjoy making Furniture.  There are several different aspects that give us the pleasure.  One aspect that is most suitable when talking about Dining Room Tables is the fact that your Family and Friends will gather around these tables to share meals, prayers, happiness, accomplishments, solutions, games and many other events that shape our lives and our Families.  We are honored each time a table is welcomed into a home because we know that we have created a solid centerpiece for the above events to take place.

     This Bike Rack holds a total of 12 bikes, and is powder coated to ensure the integrity of the steel is upheld for the long term use of the product, even in the salt water air of the Carolina Coast.

Recycled Furniture

We understand and support the growing interest in sustainable living. 

With this we have recently enjoyed discovering the thrift movement and had no idea that there were such treasures in these stores that are driven by organizations such as Habitat for Humanity, Salvation Army, Goodwill and other “trading posts”.  The Steel Appeal would like to help with this process of recycling, reclaiming, re-beautifying items that already have a story, and we are thrilled to give them a second chance, or a third who knows?

 

     We will continue to add more products that have been reclaimed and re-beautified and we hope you will find something that you would like to put in your home or office.  If there is a particular piece that you already have and would like for us to see if we can help with the project we would be more than happy to do this as well.
