ABOUT US


VAN·OUDS ~ (DUTCH FOR ‘FOR A LONG TIME’)

Our tables are made from ±150 year old walnut wood, harvested from the Belgian Ardennes and dried for four years on the wind. In the process, we are inspired by the natural shape of the tree and after many rounds of sand shaping we apply several layers of epoxy resin on top of the table. After that we sand, polish, lacquer and finally polish the table again. Each table is unique in shape, color and size and is build by hand in our workshop in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

 

HISTORY

“Our goal is to create unique, robust & handcrafted design furniture.”

We started VANOUDS in 2012. Our first project, a series of six walnut tables, is the product of our passion for wood and surfing. Did you just say surfing? Well, yes. We used to surf a lot, and if you want to protect your surfboard against the forces of nature, you can treat your board with a layer of epoxy resin. That’s how we got to know this material. Now we use this epoxy as a protective coating on our tabletops. This not only gives them extra strength and durability, it also makes the table a real eyecatcher. Beside epoxy, we also really like wood. We grew up with wood and it’s become a real part of our lives. Wood is durable and strong, and often has a gorgeous grain and color. This truly makes it one of nature’s most impressive products. Yeah, we guess you could say we love wood…These two materials, epoxy and walnut, are what we used to fashion our first line of tables.

 

MATERIAL

"The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten."

We mainly use Belgian Walnut, but are now slowly introducing Dutch Elm and Dutch Oak to our inventory. Just like the trees need time to grow, it takes time to produce a VANOUDS table. Every single piece is made by hand and that's why it takes around 4 - 8 weeks from start to finish. Our dining tables start at 3630 euro, but it all depends on the type- and size of the wood. If you are looking for a specific type, size, color or shape, please don’t hesitate to contact us. We always have a few different shapes and sizes on stock.

OUR TABLES

“Sometimes a combination of different materials works out so well, you’re surprised you don’t see it more often.”

The walnut wood is from the Belgian Ardennes. It’s about 150 years old, and after harvesting, it spent another four years drying before it found its way to us. When making a table, we first select the wood and assemble the different parts of the table together. Then we focus on the shape. We never work with a specific shape in mind, but let the natural silhouette of the tree inspire us. This means every table that leaves our workshop is guaranteed to be one of a kind. After we’re done sanding and shaping the tabletop, and we’re finally satisfied with the result, we first coat the wood with a nice layer of epoxy. Then we finish the tabletop with another, thinner, layer of hard lacquer.
Are you looking for a specific size or shape? We also make tables upon request, just get in touch with us and let us know what it is you’re looking for.



OUR LEGS

“The steel gives the shiny top an industrial look.”

The legs of our tables are made of steel. We’re crazy about the effect it creates in combination with the wood and epoxy. The legs are handcrafted in a small workshop near Utrecht. We currently offer the legs in two finishes: steel (untreated) and black and white (powder coated). Other colors or materials are available upon request.

We are still small..., and we kinda like it that way. You can't buy our products everywhere, we prefer to pick new retailers selectively.
This way we slowly grow, while maintaining true to ourselves and our high quality standards.
