Furniture designer J Libby has created the modern-rustic form of this sustainable table by simply cutting a two-foot chunk out of beam recovered from an old defunct Seattle warehouse – revealing the colorful geometry of age rings of the old-growth Douglas fir from which it’s made.

The table’s 65 pound weight attests to the robust nature of the raw material. Finished with locally produced tung oil and beeswax, the piece rests atop legs made of matte-finished recycled steel.  $300 @ birdloft
