100% Hardwood: Embrace the natural beauty and sustainability of solid wood with our exquisite furniture pieces. Not only does timber exude beauty, it’s also a living material that adds warmth and character to your home.
Artisanship: Each piece of furniture is built by hand at our atelier in France, using traditional techniques that ensure strength and longevity.
Repairability: We take pride in our commitment to sustainability and longevity. Our furniture is designed with repairability in mind, ensuring that it can be easily restored if needed. This means that you can enjoy your table for years to come, with the knowledge that it can be restored to its original beauty if necessary.
NO Composite Materials: We never use composite materials like MDF or chipboard in our designs, ensuring that our furniture is of the highest quality and durability. Our commitment to sustainability extends to our design process, with a focus on minimising emissions and maximising the reuse of offcuts.
Provenance: Our wood is FSC-certified, meaning that it comes from responsibly and sustainably managed forests that prioritise biodiversity, social responsibility, and economic benefit. When you choose our Black Walnut Office Desk, you’re not just investing in style and quality – you’re also making a responsible choice for the environment.
Dusting: Use a soft, dry cloth to dust the surface of the table regularly to prevent dirt and dust build-up.
Cleaning: If the surface of the table needs to be cleaned, use a gentle cleaner designed for use on acrylic-coated surfaces. Be sure to avoid harsh chemicals or abrasive cloths as these can damage the finish on your dining table.
Sunlight: Direct sunlight can cause the colour of the furniture to fade over time. If possible, place the furniture away from windows or use curtains or blinds to block direct sunlight.
Moisture: Moisture can be problematic if left to linger on the tabletop. If any food or liquid gets split directly onto the surface, clean immediately.
Heat: Avoid placing hot objects, such as pots and pans, directly on the surface of the table. Use trivets or placemats to protect the surface from heat damage. When planning the location of your table, consider placing your table 1-2 meters away from a heat source such as a radiator or fireplace.
Handle With Care: Please be warned, these tables are very heavy. If you are planning to move your table, be sure to lift it rather than dragging it across the floor and make sure you have a few extra sets of hands to help. This will help to prevent scratches and other damage to the surface or floors.
Storage: If the table is going to be stored for an extended period of time, cover it with a clean, soft cloth to protect it from dust and scratches.
Shipping: Our Black Walnut Office Desk comes with free delivery and installation.
Scheduling: Once your European walnut dining table build is complete, we will schedule a delivery time that is convenient for you.
Accessibility: Please ensure that the delivery location is easily accessible and that there is enough room for our delivery team to manoeuvre the table into the desired location. If there are any potential obstacles, such as stairs or tight turns, please let us know in advance so that we can prepare accordingly.
Installation: Our delivery team will be responsible for both delivering and installing your L’Atelier Mata table. They have been trained to handle heavyweight furniture with care and to ensure a safe and professional installation. The team will show you how to attach the base to the table top for future reference.
Inspection: Upon delivery and installation, please inspect the table to ensure that it meets your expectations and that there is no damage. If you notice any issues, please let us know.
Disposal of Packaging: Our delivery team will dispose of all packaging materials and clean up the area after installation is complete.
The Timber: Black Walnut Office Desk
American Black Walnut
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
Cuboid Base | Black
Our cuboid desk base boasts a clean and contemporary aesthetic that will elevate any room. The shape of the base creates a strong and stable foundation, ensuring your desk stays sturdy even during the most intense work sessions. The simple yet striking design also allows for versatility in terms of tabletop material and colour, allowing you to customise your desk to your unique style and needs.
From a design perspective, the cuboid shape is highly desirable due to its symmetry and balance. It creates a sense of order and stability, while also providing a modern and minimalistic look that will never go out of style. Additionally, the straight lines and sharp corners lend themselves well to a variety of interior design styles, from industrial to mid-century modern.
