It is time to reveal another item from our atelier, something that we are very excited about. The table in our first garden furniture collection is ready. The line is called Scandinavia and will consist of a table, stools, a bench, and a console table, all items available in different types of wood. Yesterday we brought the table into the garden and photographed it in the sun. The table you see in the photos is a pine table coated with white furniture oil. It is light, yet very sturdy, as A used the mortise and tenon joint technique to fasten the legs (no bolts used). I know that I'm biased but I am quite pleased with the outcome - the craftsmanship is beautiful.
When A designed the table he was thinking about summers in e.g. the Stockholm archipelago area. Are you picturing red Scandinavian summer houses with white windows? That is what we were doing yesterday when we dined by the table for the first time.
