When homeowners and designers choose a statement piece for their projects, shiny new appliances or hot lighting fixtures come to mind. But with the recent demolition of a historic Seattle brewery, Real Carriage Door Co. wants to add the charm of weathered wood to the list of statement selections.

Originally built as Seattle Malting & Brewing Co. in 1903, the cold storage building of what became the Rainier Brewing Co. -- the nation's sixth largest brewer in 1904 -- was torn down in 2008, and much of the wood salvaged for reuse. Real Carriage Door Co., has secured a limited amount of the wood to create its limited-run line of Salvage Wood Barn Doors. In addition to having a rich history, the eco-friendly sliding barn doors can add warmth and character with the aesthetic appeal of rustic, reclaimed wood.

With sliding doors as a growing trend in residential design, Real Carriage Door Co. has paired the barn doors with ultra-quiet rollers and ball bearing wheels from its Real Sliding Hardware line. As space-saving doors or room dividers, the Salvage Wood sliding barn doors help save space while merging old and new in home design. Real Carriage Door Co. | 800-694-5977 | realcarriagedoors.com
