About the Timber
We’re seriously proud of our boxcar timber. This incredible table is crafted from floorboards stripped out of decommissioned American boxcar freight trains. After servicing the railroads for decades, each board is peppered with a scar-covered history that we wish we could understand. Once repaired and restored, they’re simply stunning.
About the Metalwork
It doesn’t sound quite as sexy as chrome – but it looks just as fabulous. Nickel and chrome plating are only very slightly different, but nickel works much better with our box section steel legs. The mirrored finish is something gloriously special.
About the Design
Reclaimed boxcar wood captured our hearts almost 10 years ago, and we’ve never wavered from it. This piece has been ebonised – a natural process which darkens the tannins in the timber – which results in this rich, dark colour. It’s oak, but not quite as you’ve ever seen it before.
