004 Coffee Table by Vaarnii
The honest qualities of pine are boldly expressed in Soft Baroque’s Coffee Table. The satisfyingly rational joints of traditional Finnish log houses, themselves a celebration of elementary wooden construction, have been used to decorative effect in this most solid of tables. Round notch joints have been inflated to ‘comic proportions’ by Soft Baroque, who predict that their substantial table will outlive any of its owners and largely be used for dancing on, given its hulking proportions.
Made in Finland of Finnish pine.
All Vaarnii products are locally made by a small number of expert Finnish makers. All pine wood is harvested from sustainably managed Finnish forests, PEFC certified and slow grown.
Pine is very characterful material. As a result of the naturally occurring oils and resins, pine will change colour as it ages. Heartwood and sapwood will start aging at a different speed resulting in gorgeous stripy patterns. The color will gradually even out and mature to a beautiful honey tone over the course of years.
Although our pine wood is the hardest soft wood you can find, it will dent and scratch over time. We ask you to embrace these characterful signs of aging.
Our raw material is hand selected for maximum quality. Because of the nature of wood, each product has a unique grain, colour, and pattern.
