A mirror can reflect so much more than what’s in front of it. The Compass Rose Mirror tells the origin story of EcoChic Lifestyles, our inspiration and our essence.

EcoChic founder Megan Risdon was walking through an out-of-the-way fishing village in Southeast Asia. The trip was an escape from the corporate humdrum. But rather than retreating to a resort, Megan wanted to get out and experience the place for herself.

Passing boats in the water, families working their livelihoods together, bungalows lining the shore, Megan’s eye caught the reflection of a colorful mirror displayed on someone’s home. Inquiring more closely, she learned that many decorative pieces are crafted from reclaimed fishing boat wood in an ingenious and eco-friendly response to the effects of time and weather.

The Compass Rose Mirror carries the spirit of that original mirror, which sparked Megan’s vision for EcoChic. The name Compass Rose evokes the navigations of fishing boat fleets as well as the global nature of every piece we create. The circular frame combines hand-cut wedges from many different vessels into an intricately fitted pattern. The solid wood construction provides a dependable setting for the reflective glass.

And like that mirror hanging on a beach bungalow, the Compass Rose Mirror is perfect for outdoor as well as indoor use because of its marine-grade teak. The water-resistant reclaimed wood doesn’t mind a shower now and then.

EcoChic reclaimed wood furnishings are handcrafted from Southeast Asian fishing boats. The wood originally comes from teak plantations in Java, which are managed for sustainability by a state-owned forestry company. Because the wood is marine-grade, it is more durable and resistant to moisture and condensation, and it adapts to changes in weather and season.

The reclaimed wood used in EcoChic pieces is selected by hand from fishing boats that are no longer water-safe. We only use boards that are 100% straight and intact, with no warping or damage. The unique weathered paint is preserved and enhanced through careful cutting and sanding. To protect its color and texture, we finish every piece with a water-based organic semi-gloss sealant.

Some EcoChic furnishings are accented with fresh white paint — we use Benjamin Moore Natura, a 100% acrylic paint with zero VOCs (volatile organic compounds) and zero emissions. Some pieces also use reclaimed iron that comes from dismantled bridges.

Cleaning is simple — just wipe gently with soap and water. Do not use strong liquid cleaners.

EcoChic furnishings, made from highly durable marine-grade reclaimed wood, are naturally water-resistant and stand up well to heavy use. As a result, our pieces are perfect for outdoor spaces and for high-wear interior applications like tabletops and seating.

Each piece is treated with a water-based organic semi-gloss finish. Low in harmful VOCs (volatile organic compounds), this sealant is comparable to oil-based varnish for its high resistance to abrasion, water, and solvents. As the sealant cures, the molecules become cross-linked in a lattice-like pattern that is much more durable than the single-strand bonds formed by conventional water-based finishes. The semi-gloss sealant gives surfaces a very slight shine.

Every EcoChic piece is one-of-a-kind because our reclaimed fishing boat wood is a natural and unique material that can’t be duplicated. Our product images capture the essentials of each piece, but they can’t show all the possible variations in wood grain, color, texture, and overall appearance.

To create consistency between pieces, we combine the boatwood we find into color schemes. When you order a product from a particular color scheme, you can be confident that the product you receive will look similar in color, although not identical, to the one pictured. Two pieces from the same color scheme will coordinate nicely. And of course, you can mix and match between color schemes as well.

If a particular product is available in more than one color scheme, you can see the color options by clicking the CHANGE COLOR button. If you don’t see the button, then the color scheme pictured is the only one available.
