Vaarnii is an ambitious Finnish furniture company with a stated goal of reviving the Finnish pine in furniture production and making furniture that can last for generations. Vaarnii's first collection is produced exclusively from the most widespread tree in Finland, Scots pine, (Pinus Sylvestris), from sustainably managed wild forests: Unlike cultivated pine, wild pine grows slowly, and therefore the wood is dense, heavy and hard: Ideal for products that must last a long time.
Vaarnii works with handpicked Finnish producers. Established factories that specialize in a certain type of manufacturing and production on a larger scale - or small workshops and individual craftsmen.
Although the Finnish Scots pine that Vaarnii uses in their designs is among the hardest pines available, pine is still a soft wood. The stool can therefore get some small scratches and bumps over time. Vaarnii encourages you to see it as part of the character of the furniture.
The slow-growing Finnish pine is born light, but acquires its characteristic honey-colored glow over time. Therefore, there may be slight differences between the stool and the pictures here.
