Celebrating Life on the River

We believe life is best lived with those you love the most while sitting on rocking chair sipping some sweet tea.  For those fortunate enough to live within eyesight of water, it’s a view for which you will be forever grateful.  For those who see the water in their daydreams, we see it with you.  Our goal is to create a sense of elegance and simplicity to your life through our furniture.  Sit in it, fill it up with childhood drawings and never-used Thanksgiving dishes, use it, move it to your daughter’s college dorm room, make memories around it.  And then sit back with some tea and enjoy the view.



Welcome to River Mud, where furniture of the past is given new life that reflects modern style yet honors its original charm.  

Here, the values of yesterday come to life in a modern way.

Our Furniture

Our furniture comes to life through a unique style we call “antiqued.”  Each piece is lovingly transformed from worn, tired and ignored to fresh, clean and charming.  We retain the character of the furniture- after all, those nicks and scuffs have their own story- and give it an Old World look through our painting process.

Our Workshop

Just a pair of hands, a smock, some paint and an imagination.  Well, there is probably a drop cloth and maybe a sander involved.  Oh, and definitely a couple of blond-haired daughters and maybe the neighborhood kids.  But that’s about it.  Maybe the dog too.  Read Our Story.

Our Finds

Eclectic is one word to describe our pieces.  We prefer to call it “Curated.”  Either way, we find furniture in the same place we find our inspiration- wherever we can!  They come from Friends and Family who want to see unneeded pieces given new life; many are from the yard sale down the street; and we have been known to stop on the side of the road from time to time!  However we acquire them, you know you are getting a unique item that will serve you well for years to come.  To discover more about our finds, sales and events – Contact us.
