Rock Solid

Arra David and Anne Johnson's table captures the tranquil stillness of hand-chosen sea stones and the endless motion of the currents that shaped them. Each table is topped with a solid, one-of-a-kind granite slab in your choice of color (Black Pearl, New Venetian Gold, and Azul Platino). This sturdy surface rests upon a classic half-lap joint frame made of solid ash (an indigenous hardwood harvested by suppliers certified by the Forestry Service Council). What truly distinguishes this unique table is its remarkable legs. Arra and Anne took their inspiration from cairns, the carefully balanced stacks of stones and pebbles placed along trails and paths to represent past travelers. These collaborative creations often line the hiking paths trodden through the New Hampshire mountains that the artists call home.

Arra David and Anne Johnson

Arra David and Anne Johnson are longtime New England rockhounds. Their love for Mother Nature's artwork in stone and hardwood inspires them to handcraft functional creations that bring the outdoors in. They craft each piece with attention to detail, quality, and respect for nature.

Working with stone calls for custom fixtures and techniques. Arra is an engineer and inventor, and he says it's part of his "normal care and feeding" to put him in the workshop and let him make new products and tools.

Anne is an artist with a keen eye for balance and harmony. She blends the endless varieties of nature's materials into pieces that decorate homes and will keep generations connected to their environment.

To keep our beaches and forests as they are, Anne and Arra "plant" a new quarry stone in the water to replace each one gathered, and they plant ten times the number of trees harvested for their work. collection
