When we make decisions about how to furnish our own home, we always live our own mission to avoid trends and buy timeless pieces that will last. We always consider the durability of products, so we can be sure we’ll have them for decades and pass on to future generations.
Whether we're curating products for our own home, or our website, we choose modern designs from the twentieth century for our core collections, taking into account our own personal taste as well as what we know our customers want.
Some of our all-time favourites include:
An iconic design that has stood the test of time since its introduction in 1933. It is a great example of Alvar Aalto's love of birch and shows his ability to create smooth curved wooden surfaces. Its its so flexible in the home, it can have many uses for example as a side table or a stool at a table We have several in our house, one in our bathroom and one in our living/dining space that we use as an extra seat at the dining table when needed or for when lots of people visit and an extra perch is needed.
