Design company MDC Interiors, owned by Mike Carpenter, has introduced a line of furniture made from reclaimed wood. These two handmade coffee tables are examples of sustainable furniture incorporating nature into the home, as they have a center section filled with green moss and river rocks. The Balance and Maka tables are made from wood salvaged locally from construction sites and discarded pallets from local warehouses and stores.

Here is a description of the tables from Design Lawn Showcase:

Inspired by the dichotomy of a flowing river and the static frame of a rocky bed underneath, this table symoblizes the balance between the dynamic and stable characteristics of nature. The green moss creates a striking composition paired with the polished river rocks in the center of the table. Modern lines from the reclaimed plywood create an interesting interplay against the worn edges of the aged split rail. The piece is covered with quarter inch polished glass and is sealed with water based polyurethane.
