Have you been scouting furniture stores in Dallas on the look out for something really different—a unique, but affordable piece that can add a touch of eclectic style right where you need it? A new line of reclaimed furnishings at Weir’s offers lots of possibilities.
Craftsman and artisans have been breathing new life into reclaimed wood collected from old homes, churches, barns, fences and other architectural touchstones from the past for some time now—and for good reason. Not only do these pieces boast a well-worn patina that can only be created over time, they possess a quiet sense of history, too—one that piques our curiosity and sparks conversation.
Pieces in a collection by Classic Home—now available at Weir’s furniture stores in Plano, Dallas and Southlake—are a good example of this trend. While the collection includes well-priced sideboards, chests, media cabinets, tables, benches and stools, every piece is handcrafted—no two are alike. And what is particularly striking about each piece is its finish. Layers of paint in colorful hues have been artfully hand-scraped, sanded and planed in strategic places to reveal the weathered grain of the reclaimed wood. As a result, every individual piece can serve as a unique focal point.
“These individual pieces work well with a variety of decors because the finish goes with everything,” says Sabrina Combs, a sales associate at Weir’s Furniture on Knox Street in Dallas. Not only is the finish eye-catching and versatile, it is very forgiving.
Need a family-friendly coffee table that can stand up to crayons and juice boxes and size 10 Chuck Taylors? Expansive round and rectangular coffee tables in the line fit the bill beautifully.
Want a media cabinet that can withstand a few good whacks from the Wii controller? Not only does the Odessa shutter cabinet stand up to the demands of an active household, it offers great storage, too.
Or are you simply looking for a whimsical accent piece that will have everyone asking, “Where did you get that?” Come see all the attention getters at Weir’s furniture stores in Plano, Dallas and Southlake.
