Furniture Highlight: The Cattlman's Rustic Table & Pub
Rustic, Reclaimed, Upcycled oh my!
There are many ways that we stay tuned in to what consumers in the furniture market are looking for, included being active on social media and keeping up with industry trends (more grey anyone?). But our favorite way to stay in touch, is visiting our retail partners. Just seeing what’s in their stores can be pretty eye opening. On top of that, they can give feedback from real conversations they’ve had with their customers.
Something that’s come our of visits lately? Anything rustic, reclaimed, or up-cyled is selling, even more so if it's also functional. This is a trend that we couldn’t be more excited!
That’s because rustic furniture is something that we do very well. While we have quite a few options on how to make any of our tables rustic, our best selling rustic table set is the Cattleman's Table. It features a color combination that pops (harvest stain and black distressed paint), and a ranchwood top (which looks like reclaimed barnwood).
But, as we all know, looks aren’t everything.
And that’s why this table is a bestseller, because it’s designed to be smart too. It starts out at a square round shape 42” w x 42” l, then extends to 66” l when needed. Another way to say it is that it starts out seating four, and extends to seat six or eight people.
The best part? The table leaves that are put in the table to extend it are butterfly (or cut in half and then hinged) so that the leaves can fold and store inside of table itself. No more searching for the leaves when guests are on the way, worrying about where to store them (under the bed, in the closet, in the basement).
Need furniture that can take a beating from kids/grandkids? No worries, the Cattleman’s table is already distressed. The ranchwood table top will camouflage scratches and dings. The black distressed chairs are built to last, so marks will blend right in. In fact, the Cattlemans table is so popular, that we decided to turn it into a pub!
