We saw William Stranger's furniture at CaBoom and wanted to buy a table right on the spot (We couldn't because the table we liked cost $6000, and let's just say we didn't have the space for it… in our bank account).
That being said, we adored the sustainable line (wood salvaged from the urban landscape or harvested from well-managed forests) with their natural eroded splits. Stranger told us that they were helpful to "reveal light shinning through". These are the kind of rustic pieces that feel less "log cabin" and more designer chic due to the craftsmanship and style.
Of his work, Stranger says that he, "prefers trees to tables. He cannot make trees but he finds himself driven to make tables."
It's a lucky thing for the rest of us.
