Our friend Zazel’s sweetie, Robert, makes beautiful tables, cabinets, and hutches from rustic barnwood. Robert travels around New York state and reclaims the timber from old barns that are being dismantled. Most of the wood comes from barns that were built in the late 19th century, but some wood comes from barns that stood in the 1700s!
Robert entered his dining table design in Apartment Therapy’s Design Showcase 2010, a contest that is open to independent and student designers and voted on by Apartment Therapy readers. You can vote for Robert’s design here and see more of his work online at Sherman Barnwood Furniture.
