Weathered Wood

Here are some pictures of some items with that beautiful weathered-wood finish we're seeing so much of. Check out the chandelier & the armoire next to the fireplace.

Interiors designed by Nancy Price & featured in House Beautiful. The aged finishes on the room's furnishings layer so well with one another.
The look is light & airy but still warm because of the time-worn feeling of the finishes.

I love this buffet from Wisteria. I wish I had a reason to buy it. It's got that perfect grayed driftwood look.

Here's the 'weathered oak" finish on a table & chairs by Rachel Ashwell Shabby Chic:

I love this amazing compote from Potluck Studios. Whatver you did with this, it would be beautiful. It just looks so handmade & has this great rustic-elegance.

Here's the more refined acorn lamp from Aidan Gray Home.

Aidan Gray carries a lot of their pieces in this weathered wood/ limwash finish. How perfect is this chair?

The weathered finish mixes really well with other finishes- painted, ebonized, metal- just have fun with it! Got any pretty pics to share? I'd love to see them!

I love the look of weathered wood. I actually just order my dining set from Pottery Barn. It's called Shelton and I got in a gray driftwood color. It looks like aged teak and I'm super excited to get it in.

Beautiful, this is one of my favorite finsihes. In fact, when I moved into my house 12 years ago, this is the look I was going for, and I could not find it anywhere. I was also a bit clueless about furniture. I ended up purchasing an armoire/entertainment center (it was the late 90s, before flat screens) and coffee table from Century that had a limed looking finish; it was the closest I could find. I still like these pieces 12 years later, but they certainly do not have the weathered look that I would have preferred, they look a bit more pickled.
