Industrial Glam Long View Gallery Wedding: Nicole and Brian

Industrial Glam Long View Gallery Wedding: Nicole and Brian

We are excited to unveil Nicole and Brian’s industrial glam Long View Gallery wedding in Washington DC.  We’ve been dying to share this celebration that was recently published on Style Me Pretty! You know, we  are obsessed with anything industrial, so we were particularly pumped to be a part of this wedding at one of our favorite wedding venues in DC!  We are huge fans of how the couple paired their blush and gold color pallet with the contrast of the industrial reclaimed wood, steel, concrete, and geometric accents.  We say yes to more industrial glam weddings!

We love how they used Petworth Pub Height Farm Tables and Industrial bar stools to mix up seating heights with our Classic Farm tables.  Mixed height seating is one of our favorite looks for receptions and think this will be a big trend for weddings in 2017.

Meet our New Natural Farm Tables

Meet our New Natural Farm Tables

We are super excited to introduce our new Natural Farm Tables! For some time now, we’ve been trying to figure out how we can adequately show on our website the amazing texture of our reclaimed wood farm tables.  Well, we figured why not just seal them and let their natural beauty, texture, and dimension show through??! So that’s what we did and…BOOOM…our Natural Farm Tables were born! These babies are handmade from century old barn wood reclaimed from barns in Maryland and Pennsylvania. We decided to dress them up and give them some beautiful turned legs as well!  How you doin?

Look at that TEXTURE!  Daaaaammmn.  And yes, they have a matte sealer on them preserving their details from damage (and wine).

Right now, we have a limited number of the Natural Farm Tables, but plan to have more this spring for weddings and events in Maryland, Virginia, and DC. If you need a certain number for an event, please let us know as soon as possible so we can ensure we make a sufficient number.  We can’t wait to see them shine this spring!  And how awesome do they look with our new cross back chairs?!

These natural farm tables seat 8-10 guests and are 96″ x 42″.
