Round, solidly designed dining table, designed for the Finnish brand, Vaarnii by the Swedish designer, Fredrik Paulsen (b. 1980), educated at the Royal College of Art in London. The table is produced in slow-growing Finnish pine, the grain pattern of which varies from table to table according to the wood's natural differences. The Paulsen construction is simple but distinctive and does not hide away: Here you can really study the skills of the craftsmen behind the table. Sold online only.
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 table may therefore get some small scratches and bumps over time. Vaarnii encourages you to see it as part of the character of the table.
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 table and the pictures here.
