It isn't uncommon for timber and stone to be used together in a modern piece of furniture; however, you won't before have seen this combination executed like it has been in the Trees & Rocks Table. It's not as if the different materials make up separate whole components; rather, the designer integrated one intimately into another.

The contemporary dining table has been made predominantly in a beautiful wood, forming the four legs, the branching frame and the tabletop. Interestingly, you'll see that Martín Azúa has excised two circular sections of the eating surface and replaced them with smooth white marble that lies flush. This feature makes the Trees & Rocks Table look distinctive, but it also contributes functionally as a pair of built-in trivets.
