We are so pleased to present the Eiffel Table.
Made in the popular French Industrial style, it integrates with many contemporary styles such as minimalism and Danish. And yet unlike Danish it embraces all the natural features and beauty that typical salvaged or recycled timber has to offer.
The table featured here is a truly local product. The pattern for the cast iron legs was designed by us. The legs were cast by a forge in Ballarat, and the yellow box timber for the top came from a farmer's old hay shed located in Clunes, Victoria. It is even probable that when the timber was sourced for the hay shed, approx. 80-100 years ago, that it was locally grown and milled back then too.
We designed the pattern for the legs to be industrial and strong and yet to be as light as possible to make repositioning the table as easy as possible.
The history of the wood in the table top speaks for itself. The nail holes remind us of its previous life as a hay shed. When the hayshed, which had blown to the ground, was reclaimed, it was discovered that the lengths of timber used in it were very long. The tree had lived a good long time before becoming a hayshed. And it had been a hayshed for a long time before now being ready to serve you in your home in a new capacity as a dining table. We hope it will give many years of satisfaction in this role too!
Matching bench seats also available.
Fine sanded and then coated in a water based polish, the top is a lovely thing to touch and enjoy.
