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”
Old Door Coffee Table
One of Vast’s staple products is the Old Door Coffee Table, and the stories behind this piece are as fascinating as they are numerous. As the name suggestions, it began as an artistic way to recycle builder’s scrap timber and old doors and has now become one of our most desirable products, of which there’s no surprise why.
Designed to create contrast, the latest range of these distinct coffee tables blends new wood borders with a recycled timber middle, complete with a sanded down finish to frame the true character of the piece. Trust us when we say that this is quite the engineering feat, requiring a kiln and special joinery processes to create the perfect artwork, fit for your guests.
When it comes to genuinely recycled coffee tables, this one is made to last! We spend meticulous time on the technical side of construction to ensure it can weather all conditions so that all you have to do is continue to marvel at your remarkable table for years to come.

Prahu Bar Table
As the centerpiece of our Prahu Range of furniture, this rustic table not only has genuine appeal, it also has such a remarkable sustainability story behind it.
To source the timber used in this piece, Vast locates sunken fishing boats found in waters around Indonesia, raises them up, dismantles and harvests the pieces of wood, drying it all out and then recrafting it into the beautiful table you see here.
Since we started making this piece ten years ago, we have refloated around 400 boats. Every single piece of this table has a story, and because the wood is teak, it will never rot.
