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.

“Inspiration ambushes me anytime, anywhere, and I welcome it.”

Arra David and Anne Johnson want everyone to get stones. So the longtime New England residents replace each smooth rock they harvest from the water with a rough one from a quarry that will eventually become a worn beauty in its own right. (All the wood they use in their designs is ethically forested, too.) Once their bounty is gathered, they sit down with a group of dedicated artisans they lovingly call "rockers" to handcraft their uniquely beautiful household items and barware. "We all work together as a closely knit family," says Arra. "We all put our hearts, brains, muscles, and fingertips into everything we build."

We took a road trip to visit Anne and Arra in New Hampshire, where they welcomed us with hard cider and put us straight to work. See the whole story on our blog.
