Have you seen the beautifully crafted furniture pieces that are out now made from Tennessee Whiskey barrels?
While there is nothing new about barrel furniture I have never before pointed to it and said,
According to Luxe Living ,” craft whiskey barrels can be used only once, as specified by law. After this use, most of the used barrels are sold to distilleries in Scotland and Ireland for maturation of their whiskies. In America, the barrels are generally used between three and eight years. Across the pond, they are used to age the spirit for three to upwards of forty years. “
The name is the first thing that I loved. The letters stand for
Barrelly Made It.
I think that’s cute.
Creative Director Gustaf Anders Rooth from San Diego is a transplanted Swedish designer and Master Craftsman. Rooth creates pieces using every component of the barrel including the heads (ends) and steel bands.
The pieces have a certain “couture” feel to them to me.
Even their seals of authenticity are perfect.
