When you need a chic spot to stash that beloved pair of chandelier earrings or a few fragrant cigars, turn to the First Mate Side Table, which will never let you down.

Three drawers means three hits of color from the reclaimed fishing boat planks used in our solid wood construction. We personally choose only the best boatwood, which must be straight and have quality paintwork. Our craftspeople then sand every board by hand and put together unique color combinations.

The framing on this piece has been restored to its natural teak hue. The design itself has a Shaker-style simplicity, with squared legs and face frame, and the unpredictability of the paint layers and the decorative drawer pulls provide an intriguing contrast. The entire table is treated with an organic water-based sealant to preserve its finish.

The compact size of the First Mate Side Table makes it a versatile piece for a condo bedroom or bath. Bring it onto your balcony too — the marine-grade teak is water-resistant and ideal for outdoor use as well as indoor.

Buying this beautiful hard-working wood directly from the source and refashioning it into furniture is an elegant way to support local communities in Southeast Asia while producing eco-friendly furniture. So you can feel as proud of where the First Mate Side Table comes from as you do about how it looks.

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.
