It’s amazing how something as simple as an antique barn beam can add so much character and warmth to a living space. Southern Vintage gorgeous hand-hewn timbers make the perfect rustic wood fireplace mantels and add a tranquil, natural element to rustic or contemporary interior designs.
Our reclaimed barn beams and timbers are strikingly beautiful and structurally solid. They maintain a look that is defined by the workmanship long ago that went into each precision swing of the craftsman’s axe. We preserve this exquisite craftsmanship in our barn beam mantels, which means your mantel will forever have a verse to tell in the story of America’s earliest days.
The wood for our barn beam mantels is source from recycled barns throughout the United States. Each of these structures is a one-of-a-kind, as is each beam, which means your reclaimed timber mantel will be a centerpiece of conversation.
Our reclaimed wood fireplace mantels will be custom-cut to your specified length, surface de-nailed, treated for insects, pressure washed and kiln dried to ensure durability and sustainability. Every reclaimed barn beam is an organically unique structure. Our vast inventory lets you hand select the best wood mantel for your space, then choose the surface type you prefer, including heavy or bold characteristics, smooth sides or special features.
Southern Vintage uses timbers that were shaped by craftsman using nothing but an axe – often more than a century ago. The “chunky” texture and aged axe marks give hand-hewn wood mantels an authentic, rustic look.
Our antique timbers are normally shipped as raw pieces, but we also offer a natural wax finish if you prefer a softer look. All of our reclaimed wood mantels have the option of pre-finishing with one of our wax-oil finishes like Tudor Brown, Mahogany, Golden Oak and Rustic Pine.
