The Semaphore Corner Shelf sends a message of playfulness and treasured history. The three triangular shelves are collectibles in themselves, reclaimed from colorful fishing boats that are no longer seaworthy. And what better spot to display your own mementos of family and travel?

This very special marine-grade teak comes from the fishing communities of Southeast Asia. Each piece is chosen for its unique painted finish and its integrity — nothing warped or damaged makes the cut. The shelves are then set in a black iron frame fabricated from reclaimed bridge iron, making the entire piece eco-friendly.

Original EcoChic designs like the Semaphore are crafted by hand in local workshops and carefully inspected for quality. We also finish the wood shelves with an organic water-based sealant for extra protection. Everything is permanently secured so there is no further assembly required.

This shelving unit makes the most of those little corners, perhaps in a powder room or home office. You can also incorporate it into your outdoor spaces, like a balcony or gazebo, because of its durability and water-resistance. The small size beckons viewers to draw close and appreciate all the keepsakes arranged there.

It’s our pride and joy to bring you exclusive décor that provides the crowning touch to a room, and we trust that you’ll take pride and joy in making the Semaphore Corner Shelf a part of your history too.

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.
