Reclaimed Parquet Desk
We made this Desk from reclaimed parquet flooring. The table top sits on beautifully contemporary folded steel legs.
The parquet was originally the floor for a church in Sutton Coldfield in the West Midlands of England. Luckily the Church still stands and is now re-purposed as a community hall. The flooring was removed as part of the renovations and we were lucky enough to get our hands on it. The parquet bricks are pitch pine and have all the marks and imperfections that make them just perfect in our eyes. We plane the top surface of the bricks and sand them back before applying our own recipe beeswax polish. We have arranged the bricks in an attractive herringbone pattern. We expose the edge of the parquet bricks and chamfer the edge of the ply making it almost invisible.
The legs are in our typical JAM style of contemporary folded steel with exposed black rivets. The legs have been powder coated in a gloss white.
This desk is 118cm x 60cm
The desk comes complete with a pot of our beeswax polish and a polishing cloth.
It’s a real privilege to work with timber with such an amazing story and a real joy to give it new meaning and a new life. We love this Parquet Desk and we hope you do too : )
