Greg Klassen Furniture [x]

A solo furniture maker and creator, Greg Klassen makes one-of-a-kind pieces out of wood sustainably taken from the forests of Washington. The edges and grains in his collections showcase the best of wood furniture.

The River Collection shown here is made of wood from rotting trees discarded from construction sites. The rough edges of the wood and custom cut glass combine to form rivers and lakes.

The elegant curves of the Mendo(cino) Collection chair show high workmanship, and more importantly form fit to the body, creating a comfortable yet beautiful chair.
