We love clean, modern dwellings built into the shells of old barn structures. But let's face it, that's not exactly a common occurance here in NYC. With many of us living in highrise apartments, not heavy timber barns, here's a way to imbibe your place with a bit of the rustic. These tables at VivaTerra are made from salvaged rough-hewn barn beams...
These tables used to hold up barn roofs, and now they can hold up your bedside water carafe and bedtime reading. From VivaTerra:
Each piece is crafted from "found" American lumber up to 200 years old. Imperfections, such as warps, cracks, nail holes, and worm holes have been left untouched intentionally, to capture the charm, warmth, and patina of the antique wood.
So, what does it take to ship a barn beam to your house? Well, there's a $25 surcharge on the tables to cover the extra shipping costs (added to the base cost of shipping to your particular address). The tables are on sale at 30% off right now, saving you $105 on the cost of the table.
