Wooden Cloth

Quality furniture is made to last for years, to be passed down to future generations and treated with love and care. The table is designed to adapt itself in size to the many different situations in life, prolonging its usefulness.

This could be a move to larger apartment, accomodating a few extra friends for dinner, or just freeing up a little extra space to dance. My intention is that the lifetime of the wood will determine the lifetime of the table.

The table is made of locally grown ash and has a finish of transparent Osmo oli.
620 (1200) x 750 x 720 mm
