Part of what makes reclaimed furniture eco friendly is that reclaimed furniture is created through upcycling. The upcycling process is a paradigm that improves upon the reduce, reuse, recycle mantra of decades prior. Being a participant in an environmental movement is one of the ingredients that makes Barn XO a better kind of company, making a better kind of product.
Upcycling is the act of transforming unwanted products and/or waste materials into products of better quality, for better environmental value. Taking barn doors and turning them into tables and desks is upcycling. Utilizing metal support beams from demolished buildings for bookshelves and barstools is upcycling. When you buy reclaimed furniture from Barn XO you are rewarding a company that walks the walk on being part of the solution rather than part of the problem.
Don’t get us wrong, we’re not perfect. You can’t buy meatballs and jars of preserves when you shop for our furniture. Hey, we all need goals to chase. For now, Barn XO is happy and grateful to be able to make exceptional products that give something back to the world other than more waste. Rustic decor is the interior design trend of the moment across America. As we all know, trends can often lend themselves to a throwaway culture. The premium reclaimed furniture Barn XO constructs is built to last for generations to come, from materials that lasted for generations before us.
We have an affinity for barns, so we are thankful to be able to breathe new life into these pillars of America’s past. Saving these structures from the junkyard and upcycling them into high quality furniture that is in demand from San Francisco to Brooklyn, makes us feel equally happy and gracious. So why wait?
