Give New Life to Scrap Wood with This Sustainable Occasional Table

May 15, 2024
Chute Libre repurposes oft-neglected wood material into unique furniture.

Chute Libre aims to give new life to scrap wood—a material that’s often neglected. The scraps are sorted and assembled by accumulation of layers, alternating different types of wood in order to create a multi-wood pattern that’s dictated by the variety of thicknesses, formats, species and finishes. From there, a highly sustainable occasional table is born, made of an assembly of MDF scrap, particle board, plywood and different solid woods.

The face and back panels are in light wood veneer (oak or ash) and the inside is hollow. Each piece is unique.
