NGV Timber Table
The National Art Gallery of Victoria opened in 1968.
The National Gallery of Victoria- known as the NGV is one of Australia’s oldest and most visited gallery, with over 2 million visitors annually.
It is one of Melbourne’s most popular attractions, not only for tourists, but loved by locals.
The iconic NGV located on st Kilda Rd opened in 1968 and was designed by Sir Roy Grounds. 30 years on, Mario Bellini took on the opportunity to redesign the iconic building. In 2003 it reopened after shutting for 4 years due to the renovations. YARD Furniture has sourced timber stored since the renovations of this iconic building and is now crafting it into beautiful, bespoke furniture.
The Strathewen dining table has been built using the NGV timber.
YARD Furniture can create a range of furniture pieces using these special timbers, contact us to discover how you can own a piece of Melbourne history.
FEATURES OF THE NGV TIMBER
The blonde, subtle tones gently bring the Strathewen Table to life. Perfectly contrasting with the bold, darkness of the legs, the NGV timber illuminates the space. Just as art increased in value with time, so too does our NGV timber. Each table is as unique in timber as visually stunning in design.

DESIGNED WITH PASSION
Peter McManus is the designer behind the entire YARD range. Each salvaged beam recycled has its own narrative, a story to be told. Peter’s like a storyteller, every piece of furniture reveals another chapter within YARD’s chronicle. His carpentry background combined with his creative mind leaves no stone unturned when it comes to beautifully crafted, timeless timber pieces.
CRAFTED WITH CARE
Once the rough recycled timbers are de-nailed and machined, they then reveal their true character. From this point, the creative chapter begins.
Peter along with a small team of passionate woodworkers make our pieces right here on site in Preston.
FINISHED TO PERFECTION
Each piece is finished by hand with precision and attention to detail.
YARD uses environmentally friendly hard wax finish which brings each timber and it’s story to life.
