Since then, we've shipped over 35 California tables to clients across the US and Canada... even Google has one in their offices!
Carefully cut into the iconic shape of California, each table is crafted from native, salvaged Claro walnut, and features formed steel legs.
The California Series comes in three sizes: a large size desk, a medium size, and a small coffee table.
This listing is for the small coffee table: 56" long from tip-to-tip, 16" tall.
The California shape offers ideal function as desk or coffee table, and brings to mind all of the positive associations with “the golden state”: artistic contribution, technical innovation, entertainment production, political progression, and diversity of population and geographies.
Claro walnut, a perfect analog to the left coast’s culture and people, possesses a spectrum of colors and textures, unique among wood species. And, it’s rare. Because Claro walnut is not harvested commercially at any significant scale, it is obtained mostly through small, independent sawyers who are able to spare displaced or dead trees from the landfill or chipper. Since the species is no longer planted in the orchards, it’s availability is finite and shrinking year by year.
I can think of no greater tribute to this material than to create from it functional pieces of furniture in the shape of it’s geographic origin. Also, it’s cool. Way better than a rectangle.
All table and desk tops are finished with a low-toxic, hand-rubbed oil. Shipping charges within the continental U.S. are: $100, or personal delivery is free for buyers in the SF bay area.
