A Ping-Pong Table Forged from Railroad Steel

Rail Yard Studios: The manliest of furniture

  • 09 September 2015

“So I was wandering around Pottery Barn” is no way to start a story about the things you choose to keep in your home.

“This one time, I met a man who builds tables from the very steel and sweat of the American frontier” — now we’re talking.

For that story, you go to Rail Yard Studios, taking orders now.

These Nashville-based designers and railway vets forge custom furniture from reclaimed hardwood and century-old railroad steel.

Rail Yard

All custom-made and one-of-a-kind. Eco-friendly and powerfully handsome to boot.

Bonus: all prices include white-glove delivery and installation.

What they have now: a perfect pairing of a bike and wine rack. A steely “knuckle” desk. A vintage lamp that somehow evokes the spirits of Edison and Carnegie.

And their latest and greatest: the Click-Clack Table Tennis Table, with scavenged rail from the Tennessee Coal & Iron Company, plus oak and hickory timbers and railroad nails dating all the way back to 1921.

Great for making up your own stories.
