Spalted Beech Table

“Alex’s Spalted Beech Table is the unique piece of furniture my home had been missing! It is so beautifully made – a real work of art and a functional coffee table. I love the contrast of the gentle spalted wood with the bold skirting and industrial-style legs, creating this striking yet natural look. The spalted wood pattern is stunning, an intricate mix of soft colours layered next to darker lines rather like the contours on a map, but instead of illustrating geographical features, these patterns represent the natural state of the tree’s biology as a host to other organisms, a snapshot from the day the tree fell, now forever preserved in time. The finish on it is lovely and feels very nice to the touch. I’m delighted to have found this piece. Thank you, Alex.”
