What's Hot: Cutting-Edge Wood Designs

Taking his cues from satellite imagery of Earth’s winding waterways, Washington-based furniture designer Greg Klassen crafts the one-of-a-kind pieces in his River Collection from discarded tree trunks. Each piece of wood is milled into slabs and dried in the open for three years before being fashioned into its final shape. Klassen’s designs range in size and function and include the rounded Nelson River Coffee Table ($5,800), the rough-edged Cedar Lake Table ($5,800), and the majestic Maple River Longhorn Dining Table ($10,500 for the 8-foot size).
