(PRWEB UK) 7 January 2013
Casa Bella online furniture store, which specialises in Indian and eastern solid wooden furniture, highlighted the growth in popularity of items made from reclaimed wood as an example of the shift away from more mainstream materials common to high-street chains.
The trend can be seen on both sides of the Atlantic, with buyers hailing the unique appearance and durability of reclaimed wood, together with its environmental benefits. Casa Bella has imported thousands of these more rustic pieces of furniture over the last seven years, partnering only with trusted manufacturers in India and Indonesia that use ethically sourced materials.
A spokesperson said: "It's very easy to buy furniture these days, but it's much harder to find contemporary furniture that is genuinely unique with some history attached to it. We are though seeing a clear upturn in demand for this kind of wooden furniture. We sell pieces made from Mango wood, for example, a solid hardwood that is the perfect timber for furniture: easy to stain and cut, natural and absolutely beautiful to look at.
“The evidence from our business is that more and more are searching for rustic and reclaimed wood furniture that lend their home that extra character while still remaining very affordable."
Another very popular style of Mango wood is Jali furniture, a solid wood that features traditional styling and ironwork detailing. Casa Bella has a range of Jali furniture pieces including TV cabinets, tables and sideboards.
Mango wood furniture is just one of a range of different types of wooden furniture offered by Casa Bella, with wide selections of Sheesham and Acacia also coming from India, while its range of Teak garden furniture is sourced from Indonesia.
The growing interest is mirrored in the United States where more and more retailers and homeowners are reclaiming old wood themselves to keep up with the trend. One New York retailer has even taken on the task of saving the Atlantic City boardwalk timber left decimated by Hurricane Sandy.
