We love customizing pieces from our Suspended line, here is a custom Suspended Console Table featuring a live edge Claro Walnut slab top on a blackened steel frame.
This particular slab displays a stunning array of color and figure, a truly exquisite example of California Claro Walnut. We used a black oxide patina to chemically blacken the steel frame, so as to highlight the dark tones in the Claro Walnut top. Photographed at our slab warehouse where it patiently awaited being reborn into a heirloom piece of furniture.
Our Suspended line can be customized in terms of frame finish, wood specie, wood thickness, and wood finish.

Looking for the perfect live edge table? Our process begins with air dried and kiln dried slabs that were locally sourced and salvaged from urban development projects. These trees soaked up the California sun and all of the hearty minerals growing in the Northern California soil, resulting in a stunning array of colors along with the more traditional brown and black hues. Many of these trees were planted on the perimeter of Sacramento, central valley, and San Francisco Bay Area farms and grew to a tremendous size with the help of farm water runoff. Road widening projects, housing developments, and natural disease are some of the reasons that we get to work with such exceptional wood, and we are happy to share it with all of our customers!
Stay posted as we continue to post about our lengthy and detailed process that results in one of a kind live edge pieces of furniture.
Our clients, in Chicago, catapulted us away from our comfort zone by choosing a slab with a significantly decayed live edge. We had total freedom to design a solution that would make the live edge functional. Photos: Sean Miller
Attacked and decayed by fungus, the live edge was left rotten and "punky", a consistency similar to styrafoam. It also created a beautiful canyon like texture that we wanted to maintain and highlight.
We chose to add a recessed, hand cut bronze glass sheet, supported by two brass "corsets" that emerge from within the slab to the decayed live edge.
The space between the glass and decayed live edge became a stunning space of textured reflections.
The brass "corsets" can be inlaid with two different orientations. For those who prefer the corset to have more of a presence, here is the other side.
