The Old Door is the product that really converted Vast’s love of salvaged timber into our first mainstream recycling success.
Perhaps one of the main reasons for its popularity is how the combination of new timber (used in the frame and legs) contrasts neatly with the recycled timber that is used in the inset panels on the top.
As the name suggests the feature timber used in these tables is sourced predominantly from salvaged old wooden doors which are often approx. 40-60 years old
The top is hand assembled from solid recycled hardwood planks ; carefully selected and married sympathetically with others to create a design fingerprint that is unique every time.
The table surface then has the hand application of four individual layers of hard wearing German lacquer that is interspersed with light sanding between each coat, providing a surface that easily stands up to boiling water, red wine spills, hot plates etc.
These tables incorporate our signature strength guarantee and really are designed to last a century, or in our words “a lifetime of meal times”
All you have to do is to look at this piece to know why it’s a real crowd favourite! Combining the old with the new, the Hesta Dining Table displays a proud geometric design surface which appeals to modern tastes, built through the use of our signature Vast carpentry techniques where we combine over 300 individual pieces of different timber to create its characteristic look. But it’s so much more than that! We have fashioned contemporary out of traditional, with old recycled timber being hand-cut and delicately placed into the intricate jigsaw design you are marvelling at before you now.
The visual appeal is no accident! Our funky designers observe the piece in its entirety during its construction and work out which colours and shapes will best complement each other, resulting in a table which is completely unique and limited edition.
We’re very excited and most proud of this old-new blending to create distinct pieces, and you will see more examples of this throughout our collection.
Note: Actual finish may vary from picture as all pieces use unique timber.
Materials: Mango hardwood, recycled old wood & iron
