Breathtaking views deserve breathtaking furniture. This bar-height table in Portland’s city-crowning Luna Rooftop Bar originated as a 17-by-5foot slab of figured beechwood. “We cut the slab down the middle and reversed the sides,” says furniture maker Saer Huston. “This allowed us to use the live edge on both sides and to create the river pattern down the middle of the table with very little modification, preserving an incredible organic feel.” A hefty undercut along the edge of the “river” obscures the table’s light source. “The warm glow becomes part of the piece,” says Saer, rather than simply lighting the piece.”
