Stuff Boaties Like: Shipwreck Furniture

Source: Shipwreck Furniture
The histories of their reclaimed lumber read more like some tragic police report than a storied existence.  The derelict vessel carcasses, forgotten and neglected; hauled from the depths, cut to pieces, and left to bake and decay beneath an unforgiving sun.  As tragic as their endings may have been, there is no denying that they still have character.

Shipwreck Furniture specializes in taking lumber from old wooden hulls that have been neglected, sunk, and scrapped and turns it into functional pieces of art.  Located in South Africa, these unique furniture makers painstakingly remove countless shank nails to ready the timbers for new life.  The results are stunning, rustic pieces that not only have a story, but would look great in any boaties house, house boat, boat house, or yacht.  I’ve got my eye on a few pieces.  Check out their portfolio of furniture in the gallery here.  And read about the history of the wrecks here.  I’ve pick out my favorite pieces and put them in a gallery after the jump.  Enjoy.
