Rare Wood Types and Hairpin Legs

Rare woods are more than just rare. They can be amazing. Woods like mulberry, pistachio, and carob come from foods we may be familiar with but have never seen as lumber. We’ve all heard of redwood but we aren’t all lucky enough to have some in our lives. If you’re looking to create a really special and unique piece of furniture in your home, a rare wood may be just what you’re looking for. If you’re lucky enough to have a piece of rare wood in your possession, hairpin legs are the perfect way to highlight it.

We can’t think of a better way to immortalize a piece of rare wood than making it a functional part of your home.
