VivaTerra's Railroad Tie Dining Table and Chairs are made from reclaimed wood railroad ties. Their simple lines and slender profile give them an almost weightless quality that nicely balances out the rusticity.

(We like that the wood displays original weathered markings on the surface, but we do wish VivaTerra had a photo of said markings on their site.)

Chairs, $298 for a pair, and table, $949, here.
