Board By Design’s Ravishingly Rustic Rockers

It's appropriate that Board by Design and designer Brad Reed Nelson have chosen to showcase their beautifully rustic collection of Rockers in front of a barn sided in tin with peeling red paint. And it's even more appropriate that the company is located in the Roaring Fork Valley of Colorado-arguably ground zero for the architectural aesthetic I like to call "ghost town shabby chic."

Rustic Rockers from Board by Design Synthesize Sustainably-Sourced Wood and Powder-Coated Metal

If you've never visited Aspen or Crested Butte, than you may not know of the architectural style I refer to, which often involves reclaimed barnwood adjacent to wonderfully-rusted tin. Brad Reed Nelson's Rockers perfectly encapsulate this look.

The collection features multiple styles in a variety of vibrant colors. Nelson finishes reclaimed woods like Mahogany and Ash to a perfectly bright and smooth sheen-an apt accompaniment for the steel he powdercoats in equally shiny shades of green, red, white and blue.
