American designer Jason Phillips has designed a beautiful slab table that honors the natural beauty of the Euphrates River. Taking a reclaimed piece of Chamcha wood, he channels a grove through the table that mimics the topography of the river. 

The Euphrates, alongside the Tigris river, helped to define the early culture of Ancient Mesopotamia. Now it can define a new space in the design culture of functional art. Any home would be enriched by this fine piece of history, geography, and art. Stats for River Tables Trending: Older & Chilly
