Canoe Bar …
What else would you use an old canoe for?!
Both highly functional and highly aesthetic at the same time.
The Indonesian island province of Bali is famous for its colourful and intricate canoe designs that have been produced by local populations as working vessels for many years.
In recent years, as these fishing vessels have come to the end of their useful working existence a trend has arisen amongst local crafts people to turn them into bespoke pieces of furniture that have proved hugely popular, largely in western markets.
You’ll be the talk of family and friends …
This reclaimed Canoe Bar has to be one of the most unusual examples of this – there’s even a pull-out shelf when extra space is needed.
The canoe has been cut down half its length, three quarters of the way through its depth. The open section at the top has then been filled in with a flat platform and the resulting compartment beneath has been used to its full potential as a space for various bar facilities like pull-out draws, bottle compartments and grooved spaces for hanging glasses.
Suitable for use both indoors and out …
Previous uses in the wood can still be seen and these offer a great talking point to wonder at how these first came to be.
The vibrant colours so indicative of Balinese canoes are still apparent across the design as well.
For practical purposes, the whole thing is mounted on a chunky and ornate base.
The original canoes are made from the finest quality teak to ensure their suitability for practical working applications. This quality and density of timber is passed on to the resulting furniture meaning it is perfectly conditioned for outdoor use all year round.
Please note: due to the bespoke nature of these designs no two are identical. However, the integrity of the design itself is followed by the crafts people who make them in all pieces.
