Grothouse solid wood Pastore Tables are the latest design trend in today’s luxury homes. This style has a solid wood countertop that is mitered to solid waterfall legs, creating the appearance of a continuous surface that blends into legs. So is it a countertop or a table? The answer is both; the design can take the form of a table of a countertop. Pastore designs can be used in several applications. Often they are placed over island cabinets or used as tables and desks. They can be fixed, or installed with casters to create a moveable surface for additional counter space.

Many designers use this clever product to integrate wood surfacing into their contemporary and transitional designs. They find the addition of the wood surfaces helps improve the warmth and live- ability of any room. Using wood also helps quiet down a room and adds an organic textural element.

Pastore tables can be styled to use for direct chopping, or sealed with Durata finish for a maintenance free surface. Each custom-built product can be configured from more than 60 responsibly harvested wood species, 30 standard edge profiles, and 40 stock stains. All products can be constructed with Forestry Stewardship Council (FSC) certified wood species and qualify for a range of LEED certification credits. Each organic surface ships within a 2-4 weeks and arrives with a comprehensive warranty. The Grothouse commitment to the environment, quality, and customer service guarantees a product that exceeds every client’s expectations.
