Upon meeting with a salvager of century-old loft barns in Canada, the idea of Atmosphère & Bois was sparked along with its unique concept: Salvaging and restoring old barn wood and putting the beauty and charm of its colours aged over the last century for the purpose of construction and decoration.
The greyish appearance of such old wood with its old paint work appealed to us at once and gave us the idea of re-using it. We have been salvaging century-old loft barns, usually facing demolition, ever since. We take them apart, plank by plank, beam by beam and send them to Belgium to give them a new lease on life.
Used in construction and decoration, this wood enables everyone to express his or her creativity. Steeped in centuries of history, this natural, noble and warm material suits contemporary, traditional or more rustic styles to a tee.
Timeless and inimitable, these old planks are revived in tables, lamps, wall panelling, garden houses or entire structures – all in a vast variety of hues and patinas.
