Each Chilton table features a shape and grain as unique as the tree it came from. A solid slab of wood is sanded and finished, braced with walnut butterfly joints in any areas requiring extra support, and secured to a hand-welded natural steel base.
Spalted sugarberry is a sustainably harvested U.S. wood, and its light golden color is the ideal backdrop for the distinctive grain pattern that results from spalting. Spalting naturally occurs as a tree starts to decline, creating color variations, shading and lines that are unique to each tree and its environment. The trees are harvested at the perfect time to capture this look while maintaining the strength and integrity of the wood. The best part? You can choose the exact top you like best for a one-of-a-kind look.See the full Chilton collection
