Our Story

Urban Farmhouse

At Urban Farmhouse Designs, we take pride in crafting reclaimed furniture by reclaimed people. Our reclaimed furniture is hand-crafted from wood that dates back as early as the 1920s! This wood is removed from the decommissioned boxcars to keep the material’s story alive, while preventing this precious resource from ending up in landfills. In the early 1980s, steel replaced the wooden floors, making boxcar wood a finite resource. The rail car symbolizes progress and freedom in American culture and changed the way our entire nation moved and engaged with transportation. Our wood tells a story through its unique textures. Each scar, scuff, and burn tells a narrative of the piece’s past history. The next chapter in the story of our boxcar furniture begins in your home.
