Vintage Chopping Blocks As Art

Vintage Chopping Blocks As Art

Recently noticed: Vintage cutting boards as decor in a new restaurant in Copenhagen.

Above: When designing Restaurant Höst, Norm Architects wanted to create an organic environment within an urban setting; achieved by using reclaimed, old materials. Hanging a row of thick chopping boards in various sizes created an unexpected art piece above the rustic table, one that could easily be recreated at home.

Above: A row vintage chopping blocks hang along the wall.

Above: To recreate a similar look, scour your local vintage shop or flea market for chopping boards to reuse. If you’d like to start new, these versions from Canvas feature over-sized holes for hanging and serving. The small Holey Board with a single hole is $52; the large Holey Board with two holes at either end is $72.

I would rather have real art or items that speak to me, so to speak. While if I did have a lot of chopping boards and did use them all i would probably hang them on the wall in the kitchen or pantry (If i ever get a house with a walk in pantry) for convince and easy access, not in some other room, and certainly not as "art".

I see this as a need to recreate the idealist image of what a home use to be like in the days of yore. When the home was build around the hearth or kitchen area and chopping boards and blocks, and other kitchen items, would have been about in plain sight, hanging on walls and off counter-tops, instead of tucked away, hidden, like some kind of forbidden secret.

Really? $52/72 for a wall hanging chopping board?? I'd much rather have Art.
