From the depths of the Marianas Trench to the peak of Mauna Kea, the islands and expanses of the Pacific Ocean have an astounding natural beauty and rich history. While inhabited for millennia, it was not until the 16th & 17th centuries that the Western explorers of the Age of Discovery began to realize the magnificence of this remote part of the globe. The ancient sites and natural history of this region inspire the Pacific Chestnut collection. Built on a stable eucalyptus core, Pacific Chestnut is a sturdy and attractive species. Subtle hand scraping enhances the unique grain and a durable aluminum oxide urethane finish provides a strong, lasting surface.
