About the Timber
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.
