River Tables Look Like the World From Above

Greg Klassen’s hand-crafted tables have rivers flowing through them. Inspired by the natural beauty of his home in the Pacific Northwest and the tall trees that grow there, he uses the wood’s innately sinuous form to trace the path of water-like glass that cuts a path through the table’s center. His tastefully balanced design choices create furniture with a blend of free spirited organic form and geometric perfection.

Because each of his pieces is designed and built around a naturally growing source, they are all one of a kind.

“It’s important to me that the ‘fingerprints’ of the craftsman are on each piece I make,” says Klassen. “I try to marry the natural beauty of the wood with the skilled craftsmanship of the maker. When the two come together, a piece can really sing!”
