About the Timber

Boxcar Oak

The boxcar oak featured in our reclaimed dining table is a unique wood that captures the spirit of adventure and wanderlust. Salvaged from decommissioned American trains, each piece of wood has a rich history and character that simply cannot be replicated. The reclaimed nature of the timber means that it has undergone a natural ageing process, giving it a unique patina. The knots, dents, and scratches in the wood all add to the charm and character of this timber, making it a unique addition to any home.

With its deep, rich colour and bold, striking lines, this dining table adds an element of drama and intrigue to any space. The ebonising process gives the oak a distinctively dark finish, adding an extra layer of character and depth. This table is a true statement piece that tells a story, and its use of boxcar oak only adds to its mystique and allure.

Boxcar timber is particularly precious to L’Atelier Mata’s heritage as this is where our story of furniture making began many, many moons ago.

The Table Base

SquareForm Legs | Matt Black

Our SquareForm table legs have a bold appearance, with clean lines and sharp edges. They are made from tubular steel giving them an industrial feel. The sharp corners of our SquareForm legs create a distinctive visual contrast against the table top, making them a great choice for our Reclaimed Dining Table.

These legs can be finished in a variety of ways, including powder coating, plating, or even left raw for more of an industrial look. With our reclaimed table, we have we used a matt black powder coat finish, which enhances the avant-garde aesthetic.

Our Philosophy

At L’Atelier Mata, we are passionate about what we do and we take great pride in crafting each piece of furniture by hand. Our hunt for unique and exceptional boards of timber takes us across Europe & the UK, enabling us to create bespoke dining tables, coffee tables, mirrors, mantles and many more one-of-a-kind pieces.

We believe in the power of visual simplicity. With over 15 years of experience, we have honed our skills to focus on strong lines, perfect proportions and powerful detail. These elements have the ability to bring out the inherent beauty of raw timber. We are inspired by classical form and the idea that “less is more”- this allows us to create dining tables that have a timeless, elemental character. With meticulous attention to detail at every stage of the design and manufacturing process, we ensure that every piece is perfect before it leaves our atelier.

Our team has been working together for almost two decades, giving us a wealth of knowledge and a deep sense of pride in our work. Whether it’s a residential or commercial project, we deliver on budget, on schedule, and with utmost precision.
