Craftsman Reclaimed started with an idea to make unique rustic furniture from quality woods. In 2010 Matt Downing, Craftsman’s Reclaimed founder, started his journey to identify the most beautiful and durable woods to make rustic furniture. Having grown up in North Carolina near lots of farms and studying old barns, he knew the barnwood would make some very interesting rustic furniture. Along with local and exotic woods, he has been able to create one of a kind pieces in many different styles.
The idea for the use of reclaimed wood is to use sustainable woods creating beautiful eco-friendly furniture.
Matt met with local boutiques, antique furniture stores, and showed his designs to clients across the country. During these collaboration efforts to gauge interest, Matt shared his passion with other furniture builders and completed his furniture creations. Friendships were made and beautiful rustic furniture was created and cherished by their owners. The wood is primarily standing dead or reclaimed wood from farmers’ ranches or old barns. Craftsman Reclaimed has been using reclaimed wood for over seven years, long before reclaimed furniture became a fashion.
It is Craftsman’s Reclaimed commitment to offer the highest quality and customer service in the Country. We value our client’s feedback and value input during the creation of furniture. Each hand-crafted piece is made to last for generations.
