Claro Walnut Live Edge Suspended Console

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.
