Reclaimed Factory Cart Table from Restoration Hardware

We love this early 1900′s vintage factory cart, which was once used to transport furniture, fabrics and supplies around a factory floor. Restoration Hardware has restored these fabulous white oak carts and their cast iron hardware for use as a coffee table. The wheels still function, so perhaps you could still use it help transport heavy objects.

    Ive never seen so many RH haters EVER,,, RH is awesome, and all you liars that are saying the furniture carts are fabricated by RH are stuck on stupid, do your research, their carts are from their same factories as the ones the small independent entrepreneurs are getting theirs, these are the real deal, I just got one and it wasn\’t simulated wood, the steel hardware was definitely refurbished and they did an excellent job of restoring the woodwork, these carts could be worked for another 100 years. YES RH does replicate historical looking furniture BUT these carts were definitely restored… DO your research and you will know these aren\’t from China and are not prefabbed to look like antiques. Notice its the small time haters that run down RH and at the end of their hate comment they say you can get a cart from their company or a company they are promoting! RH restores the carts The BEST, I looked at many of the other restored carts from various companies and they dont do as good of a job PERIOD! Attention ALL Haters, SHUT UP and STOP LYING!

    I.A Decor makes antique style factory carts with old nails and 100 year old lumber. These carts look real old and are functional.

    No factory oil smells or creosote from rail road ties.
    Each cart is numbered.
    Better coffee table sizing of 30 x 42 x 17.5.
    Locking wheels so the cart does not roll and turn as a coffee table.
    Custom sizes available.

    See them here: http://www.iadecor.com/reclaimed-wood-factory-cart-antique-style-p-201.html

    Okay, RH is a BIG COMPANY. They make a ton of these carts and in turn make a lot of money off of them. There is no way that they are in anyway still recycled or reclaimed. It’s easy to hate on them because of their practices but if you hate on them because you think they are still a independent company with altruistic goals your missing the point. Here’s my little pitch; ahem http://www.thestudiobychristopher.com 100% reclaimed (New York State Barn) wood, sole proprietor owner/operator, and a high post consumer content steel. There still are little shops out there who are doing things way outside the mainstream but my advertising budget is about .5% ad budget of RH; if that. Take care. C.

    Check out http://www.antiquefactorycarts.com. They are a small business out of South Carolina that specialize solely in the restoration of these carts. Their carts come out of old warehouses and are truly unique…not too mention they offer carts from $595.

    Why are you showing anything from RH? Nothing they sell will ever save the planet. In fact, RESTORATION HARDWARE contributes more devastation to the planet than WALMART. These carts are MADE IN CHINA with some “reclaimed” wood (from who knows where?) to give the look of something unique from the past. If you want an old cart, then go to a junkyard, salvage yard or down to the dock and look around….To find something authentic you must be authentic. Money can’t guarantee authenticity. If you furnish your home from a catalogue then it will look like you furnished your home from a catalogue. If you care about the planet then don’t shop at RH. If you think their parent company cares about the planet, then you should look them up.

    i’ve had one like this for years but mine has the stake pockets in the corners, it works well to attach a light to above the table. Wheels are nice the only oddity about using it is that alot of these carts are made so the end wheels sit higher making the whole thing want to tip. i’ve also got a really nice two wheeled dolly table i made by laying the dolly down and putting a found marble fire place hearth stone as the surface.

    We ordered from RH and the cart that came had a board that was a new “simulated” replacement boards nailed to the cart among the old original boards. We notified them and were told we could return for a complete refund. We ordered a second, and it came even worse than the first. Now RH is claiming they need more info to process our original return after telling us it was in the works. We’re stuck with 2 unsatisfactory carts at $300 more than we could have paid had we known other places had them. (Napa Style also has them) Unless RH comes through for us this will be our last purchase from them.
