Things to Consider When Buying Reclaimed Furniture

Reclaimed furniture offers a chance to bring a piece of history and unique character into your home, through the simple act of furniture shopping!

At Robert Rose Carpentry, we’re a family-run business, that exemplifies the integration of traditional craftsmanship with environmental consciousness through our reclaimed furniture products. 

Here’s what to consider when purchasing unique pieces like these:

 1. Understanding the Source and History

Reclaimed furniture often has a rich history. For example, our pieces include materials such as old scaffold boards, like the Douglas or The Pilton

Each bearing the one-of-a-kind marks and patina from years of use. 

This historical aspect isn’t just aesthetic; it tells a story of sustainability and repurposing. 

 2. Evaluating Craftsmanship and Durability

With reclaimed wood, great craftsmanship is crucial to ensure durability and keep your furniture healthy and working as it should.  

At Robert Rose Carpentry, we pride ourselves on creating pieces that are not only aesthetically pleasing but are also built to last for a long time, like The Bevendean bedside table!

The care in selecting materials and the attention to detail in the construction can significantly influence the longevity and durability of the furniture. 

Using reclaimed wood is great for our environment full stop, but to really get your money’s worth you want to make sure you are buying from a reputable shop. 

 3. Considering the Environmental Impact

Choosing reclaimed furniture is a positive step towards reducing your environmental footprint, whilst adding something beautiful to your home or office.  

By repurposing materials, we help divert waste from landfills and reduce the demand for new raw materials, supporting a more sustainable model of production. 

As you can see by The Kaye whiskey barrel cupboard, there’s something for everyone!

 4. Tailoring to Your Space

Reclaimed furniture can usually be customised to fit your space and needs. 

Here at Robert Rose, we offer a range of colour and design options for each of our products, and we’re always open to your ideas.

Whether it’s an industrial-style desk or a rustic wooden mirror, you can find bespoke options that allow for personalisation while maintaining the charm and integrity of the original materials.

 5. Aesthetic Value

Reclaimed wood brings a unique aesthetic that just can’t be replicated with new materials. 

Each scratch and imperfection adds to the narrative of the piece.

Our range, from garden furniture to bespoke office setups, showcases how reclaimed materials can be transformed into stylish and functional pieces that add warmth and character to any setting.

 6. Maintenance and Care

Maintaining reclaimed wood furniture is essential to preserve its beauty and function. 

Every product from Robert Rose Carpentry comes with advice on how to care for the reclaimed materials, ensuring they remain in good condition. 

This includes tips on regular cleaning and avoiding prolonged exposure to direct sunlight and moisture.

 7. Investment and Value

Reclaimed furniture is not just a purchase; it’s an investment in sustainability, craftsmanship, and style. 

Pieces of this nature are likely to hold or even increase in value over time due to their unique characteristics and the quality of craftsmanship.
