Where to Purchase Reclaimed Wood Chairs

When you start your journey of looking for reclaimed wood chairs, remember that there are multiple grades of furniture and different styles available. Many homeowners will shop online for their reclaimed furniture, while others might prefer to look in person. Luckily there are a few options available for both.


As you know, Amazon really does carry everything. Reclaimed wood chairs aren’t necessarily in abundance at Amazon, but there are some options to choose from. Whether you’re looking for something elegant or retro, you should be able to find an affordable option on Amazon.


Almost everything on Etsy is handmade. That means their products are often more expensive but what you’re getting is a handmade, one-of-a-kind piece that no one else will ever own. The choices on Etsy vary greatly, but they do have several chairs and styles that you can choose from. That’s definitely an advantage of shopping on Etsy over other places.

Pottery Barn

Pottery Barn is a great place to shop for high-end furniture. Their selection of reclaimed wood furniture is actually quite impressive as they carry most products that homeowners would be looking for. Whether you’re looking for a chair, barstool, or counter stool, check on Pottery Barn’s website to see what they offer.

Reclaimed wood chairs can give any space in your home instant charm and style with its unique texture and look. But, if you’re not able to find the right piece for your home then you won’t be able to enjoy the benefits of reclaimed wood.

It’s possible to build your own reclaimed wood furniture if you have the time or are looking for a specific style that you still haven’t been able to find from a retailer. We recommend that you have at least some skills before you tackle a DIY project on your own. But, if you’re feeling up for it, building your own reclaimed wood chair might be a great way to get exactly the chair you want.

Items Needed for a Reclaimed Wood Project

First off, you’re going to need reclaimed wood. While reclaimed wood isn’t too difficult to come by, it can sometimes be somewhat expensive. We recommend first deciding on the type of chair you’re going to build and understanding how to build it before you buy the wood for it.

You’ll also need a drill, clamps, wood glue, table saw, circular saw, and a few other tools. Different tools are needed depending on the type of chair you’re building. A traditional dining chair has a much more intensive and specific construction than a lawn chair or outdoor chair.

Here’s a great example of a dining chair that can be made from simple pieces of wood.
