For the Love of Iconic Designs

As you are probably aware, my love for iconic Scandinavian design goes back many years. Over time, I have accumulated a few classic pieces that I intend to keep for as long as I can. I have a tremendous amount of appreciation for the craftsmanship that goes into these pieces and I never underestimate the high quality and timelessness of their design. A great example of this is the iconic Bølling Tray Table designed in 1963 by Danish architect Hans Bølling.

Today, the Tray Table is crafted in Brdr. Krüger’s workshop in Denmark. An icon itself, Brdr. Krüger was founded by the Krüger brothers in the late 19th century. What was originally a woodturning workshop, has now become a self-producing design company that is still committed to the same high level of quality and craftsmanship.

This table is a great example of functional and honest design. It is so easy to put together, you won’t need any instructions. The materials, the finish and the assembly are the highest quality. It is also incredibly versatile; it works as well as a side table as it does as a serving trolley. You could even use the tray on its own for serving.

I apologise in advance for the frequency this table will feature in my photos from now on! It has quickly become an essential part of our home and I can easily see us enjoying it for years to come. The table was generously gifted to me by Brdr Krüger, but as always, these opinions are honest and my own.

Long Weekend Favourites

A little late, but the Easter weekend flew past in such a hurry I had no time to post! It was relaxing, yet hectic (!) with family activities and other engagements. We had the most amazing weather; I don’t remember Easter being this warm and sunny in a long time. Summer is still here with little signs of autumn in the air. I cannot wait for the cooler weather – you can take the girl out of Lapland…

Stay tuned for another update later this week! And more about these beautiful candles a little later, too.
