With its wildly colored boatwood presented in a sleek black frame, the Gangway Dining Chair can go anywhere and still look stylish. From a minimalist pied-à-terre to a lavish penthouse, from a cozy café to an upscale restaurant, this reclaimed wood chair is never out of place.

The panache of painted wood comes from Southeast Asian fishing boats — when the old coat of color starts to look worn, their owners brush on a new one. We take pride in searching for the most interesting finishes and putting together bold color combinations.

Once the boatwood is chosen, it comes to our local workshops to be transformed into eco-friendly furnishings. Like every EcoChic piece, the Gangway Dining Chair is an in-house design manufactured by hand. Boards are cut and assembled, and the black frame is fabricated from reclaimed bridge iron.

Building our chairs from marine-grade teak means that they are very durable and well suited for high-use situations. The wood is naturally water-resistant, and we also protect it with a finish of organic water-based sealant. So don’t hesitate to use the Gangway Dining Chair on your sidewalk patio or rooftop deck.

We have several other styles of dining chairs, including the Even Keel Dining Chair with white wood framing, and the Sargasso Dining Chair with natural wood accents. Rest assured that whatever you choose, these heirloom furnishings are made to last.

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.
