Originally, Black Forest had prided themselves in somewhat traditional tables, doors, and other fine furniture. During November of 2017, they attempted their first resin pour accompanied by a slab of walnut in a ‘river’ table. Just a month later, their Instagram post of the table went viral and their clientele base grew exponentially.
