Old meets new at this just-listed Mar Vista home, where 100-year-old reclaimed wood takes center stage in the four-bedroom, custom-built house. In homes like these, as well as hotels and boutiques, designers and architects are using strategic shots of reclaimed maple, walnut, fir and more to add depth and texture to otherwise all-modern spaces. Looking to take some timber to the wall at home? E & K Vintage Wood in Los Angeles offers reclaimed materials that include everything from 19th-century barn siding to wooden rafters from old whiskey houses.
