Live Edge Wood Dining Table Top - Strangler Fig Tree Dining Table Top
Regular priceSale price
Carefully hand milled in Lilongwe, Malawi, this dining table top is probably the most intriguing handcrafted piece in our collection. The wood species is a Strangler Fig, which is actually two trees that have grown together to become one. It symbolizes our efforts as a design company to facilitate a meaningful space for human connection. Our collaborations in Malawi allow us to build long lasting relationships with artisans, specifically in Lilongwe, the capital of the country. Our ultimate goal is to build a design school in Malawi. This will enable us to share skill sets that we have learned in America, with so many talented artisans in East Africa.
There really is no precedent for this type of dining table top. It is truly a one of one. This beautiful top could serve as a large sculpture or become a fully functional dining table with the addition of a 3/8" sheet of tempered glass. We can also design a bespoke dining table base for you to accommodate the table top based on your specs for your home. Both additions would incur an additional charge.
In partnership with Root to Fruit, we are pledging to plant 20 fruit trees in the country of Malawi when this table is sold. The client can choose the tree species, will receive a certificate from the non-profit organization, and will also have a GPS location of where their trees have been planted in Africa.
