Heritage Creations NC is a husband and wife team that has been creating unique furniture for clients since 2016. The projects really started back in 1995 when Bob built his first bed for family members. The bed was built from cherry and is still in use today. Bob always loved woodworking. Bob is by trade a handyman which naturally led to building items for customers and family. Shauna is the one who decides upon the best finish for pieces and handles all the painting, staining, glazing, or whatever finish is required. We both collaborate on the design and creative process.
In 2016 we made the decision to rent retail space in a vendor mall in Indian Trail, NC. The retail space gave us a platform to showcase our items. Fortunately, this jump into retail space has been successful for us. As we crafted many unique items, we also decided to increase the amount of furniture we repurposed. Together we find and save older items to repurpose. We like to repurpose wood in Bob’s handcrafted furniture and repurpose older furniture pieces. We save older high-end furniture from being thrown away. Bob’s handyman trade comes into play in so many ways when repurposing old furniture. He seems to have a knack for being able to fix anything. Many older pieces have been through years of work and so they usually have “issues”. Once the “issues” are addressed, these older high-end furniture pieces are set to last many more years. Shauna will paint or stain these pieces of furniture to lighten the wood and highlight the gorgeous details. Once painted, these pieces become statement pieces that add light, color, and dimension to any room.
We live on a small horse farm in NC. We have four kids and many horses, dogs, and cats. Life on the farm is always a mix of chores, feeding and fixing whatever the kids and animals seem to get themselves into. We learned early on that many items can be repurposed on the farm. You have to have an open and creative mind to maintain the farm. We take this mentality into our business. We value being able to repurpose, reuse and make new many different styles and pieces of furniture and decor. We use a mix of reclaimed and new items to craft our items. We also use industrial metal piping in our shelving and some custom furniture pieces. Our customers are those that value the history and craftsmanship behind custom built pieces using a mix of reclaimed and new items. Our customers value the history and craftsmanship behind old furniture that has been salvaged and repurposed, thus being ecologically responsible.
