A table is a fairly simple object—often just a board with legs—so it’s nice when the parts have a story to them. This Darjeeling Table from CB2 takes the current yen for reclaimed wood a few steps farther, sourcing its saal wood from Indian railroad cars. (Yes, Mr. Anderson, the same as in the movie.)

Combining vintage materials with modern construction is a good idea, and only a few pull it off this well. Here’s hoping they don’t run out of railroad cars.
