Blue Square is a handmade vintage coffee table with generous sizes, carrying the perfume of the Bucharest of the 30’s. With this project we have pursued to illustrate advanced methods to reclaim and restore very old wood. It’s a coffee table in Greek sea blue, sanded in a vintage note. In the middle we’ve set panels of plywood and cappuccino glass or copper mirror.
This vintage coffee table was handcrafted from an old pine wood door, recovered from an old house built up in Bucharest around the 1920’s. We were attracted by the wood square in the window area. The wood is partially degraded – you can see the table legs texture attacked by wood worms. Highly degraded areas and all joints were epoxy laminated, resulting in a highly resistent structure, but still leaving apparent the antiqued wood texture. In addition all wood was chemically treated against wood parasites and live micro bodies.
Blue Square vintage coffee table belongs to the Nostalgia collection and it represents a small snapshot of the interWW Bucharest, with multiple layers of brown, cream, green and blue paint.
