knock on wood

February 22, 2013

At one time, Darren Green thought he wanted to be chef. Turns out what he like about food is what intrigued him about wood: Taking a raw material and turning it into something beautiful.

Woodie Table

In 2007, Green started The Old Wood Company. The small, family-owned company in Asheville, N.C., makes tables, using reclaimed materials, mostly from dismantled barns in western North Carolina and Tennessee. With their clean and simple lines, the tables work with any style or room.

Popular designs include the Midway dining table and tables in the Woodie collection (pictured above), inspired by Mid-Century Modern designs.

Prices range from $3,000 for cocktail tables to about $5,000 for a dining table. All feature custom finishes. For its tables, the company uses mostly reclaimed red and white oak and American chestnut.

Smaller pieces, such as side tables and stools (some pictured below), are available at

In the Atlanta area, purchase tables at Steve McKenzie’s ( The new home décor and furniture store is at 996 Huff Road NW, Suite E, in Atlanta’s Westside design district.
