Beachcomber Recycled Boat Wood Coffee Table Storage Trunk.
A coffee table and a storage trunk in one! This unique and striking piece of furniture has been made from timber reclaimed from old sea fishing trawlers
Our Beachcomber furniture collection celebrates the colours and textures of the seaside with its blue-green shades, distressed, rustic, wooden finishes and touches of driftwood, rope and fisherman’s nets. Sailing into the heart of this stunning collection, is this gorgeous Beachcomber Recycled Boat Wood Coffee Table Storage Trunk.
Each Coffee Table Storage Trunk is completely unique because it is made from 100% reclaimed boat timber (mostly hardwoods), all taken from old sea fishing trawlers. Typically between 40 and 60 years old, these hard-wearing vessels once sailed the exotic Indonesian islands of Bali, Java, Lombok, Sulawesi and Kalimantan. So every time you look at your Beachcomber Recycled Boat Wood Coffee Table Storage Trunk, you can imagine the nautical history of each of the timbers that form its sleek, contemporary looking shape.
The perfect blend of the retro and the contemporary
The Beachcomber Recycled Boat Wood Coffee Table Storage Trunk combines a sleek, contemporary, stainless steel top with rustic looking, distressed timber which still bears the subtle colours of the original boat paint. Strong and sturdy, the steel table top, frame, clasps and handles are beautifully rounded and have a slightly brushed, powder coated finish, giving the coffee table storage trunk an almost industrial feel.
The interior of the storage trunk is 76cm wide, 66cm long and 35cm deep/high, so there is plenty of room to store your books, magazines, toys, games, cushions, blankets and throws or other accessories, and as a piece of furniture this is perfect for conservatories, beach houses and summer houses as well as for any other interior room. However, being made of steel and reclaimed timber, the coffee table storage trumk could also be used outdoors.
More about how these Coffee Table Storage Trunks are made
To make this Beachcomber Recycled Boat Wood Coffee Table Storage Trunk, fishing boats that have reached the end of their lifespan have been dismantled into large planks. The bolts, nails and screws have then been removed, often leaving holes in the planks.
Having survived years of erosion by the sea and the elements, the wood itself is extremely strong, but to remove all the moisture, the planks are kiln dried for 15 days. 90% of the wood from a single boat is used for these pieces of furniture, preserving the paint flecks, cracks and holes … features that will make each piece of furniture absolutely unique.
Due to its uniqueness and the limited availability of materials this is not a mass-production range and hence is limited in supply, which makes each Beachcomber Recycled Boat Wood Coffee Table Storage Trunk extra special.
