Handcrafted Wood Products – Decor Deals for Your Home!
Why is it that natural REAL wood is so much nicer than those “laminated” or “wood-like” products? I don’t know about you, but in my opinion, there is nothing quite so beautiful as simple, hand crafted wood! No “almost wood” stuff for me, thanks but no thanks! Across the country I see artisans who can transform a plain piece of wood into one-of-a-kind works of art and I am always inspired by their dedication and understanding of beauty. Not to mention their skill!
I have also found that “reclaimed” wood products are unique and beautiful as well. How clever to take a piece of wood that supposedly has no further value and reclaiming it and making it a useful and artful product that brings comfort and coziness to the home!
So I’ve done some research on various companies that offer reclaimed, hand carved or handcrafted wood products. One company I believe is worth the look is Bellacor. From their website, this is their story:
At Bellacor, we believe home is a life in progress. Since 2000, we’ve made it our goal to partner with you through every step of that journey. We understand that what you choose to bring into your home is a major decision, and we relish the responsibility that comes with it.

I also really like the Uncommon Goods company for their lovely products. Here is part of their story from their website:
We offer remarkable designs by independent makers, and our goal is to do it with a positive impact on both people and our planet.
In 1999, our founder Dave Bolotsky visited a Smithsonian Museum craft show in Washington D.C. and was captivated by the variety of unique handmade goods and the talented people behind them. He saw there was a significant public demand for beautiful design. At the same time, he realized that the artists working to make those pieces were often traveling great distances in order to sell their wares at the show. Inspired by his experience, Dave had a vision to create something that had never existed before—an online marketplace to connect makers and their creations with individuals looking for truly special goods, regardless of the physical distance between the maker and the shopper. Dave turned this idea into UncommonGoods. He continued traveling to craft fairs and trade shows, meeting artists and finding stand-out merchandise, while running the business out of his home on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. Before long, the company had outgrown Dave’s apartment, and moved through three successively larger offices in downtown Manhattan, eventually settling in our current location in Brooklyn, NY.
Along with sustainability, supporting creativity and the artist community is extremely important to us. Today our assortment has grown from a collection of Dave’s trade show finds to a plethora of products handpicked by a full-fledged buying team, who scour the web for the latest in creative design and, just like in our early days, hit the road to bring back treasures from around the country. Thanks to our community of artists and designers, we also discover many unique pieces through online product submissions. Additionally, we’ve grown an in-house product development team, who work hard to create new goods sure to make even seasoned design junkies swoon.
An Uncommon Future
As we enter a new age of business, we’ll remain focused on our commitment to sustainability and creative design. We’ll never stop working to provide a remarkable shopping experience to our customers, make our company our team members’ favorite place to work, celebrate craftsmanship and innovation, and support our community of artisans, designers, and creative thinkers. We have a feeling the future will be uncommonly good.
