The Barracks Table Modular End Tables, Nightstands, Made From Reclaimed New Orleans Wood
Made to order-modular, stackable side tables, nightstands, or storage cubbies. They show off a blending of modern clean lines with a rustic feel. These tables are constructed with reclaimed cypress wood from old New Orleans homes.
These strips of wood are called lathe boards and come from an 1840s home on Jackson Avenue, a beautifully historic street in New Orleans' Garden District neighborhood. The home was being renovated and updated with modern construction so the lathe boards were unburied and removed.
The antebellum homes of New Orleans always had thick plaster walls which helped keep the house insulated throughout the year. Lathe boards were what helped hold the walls and soft plaster together. The strips would have been cut and applied to the interior of the wall, and then a plasterer would apply wet plaster to the boards.
The strips and their weathered past form an interesting geometric pattern as they move along the tops and sides of the table.
Each piece is made to order and can be customized to your preference. The tables shown measure 16" wide x 16" deep by 26" high. They're shown in a natural waxed finish. I offer a variety of different colors and sizes. Larger sizes and customized colors may increase the price.
