Practical and flexible with carefully crafted details, the BM5868 Side Table in untreated, FSC®-certified teak outlines a simple design based on wooden slats. With its naturally high oil content, it can withstand changing weather conditions, patinating beautifully over time, acquiring a more silvery hue.
The lightweight durable frame is easily portable, whilst its foldable profile enables it to be easily stored when not in use. The perfect addition to a sunlounger or lounge chair when relaxing in the garden, its compact, petite form is the ideal addition to any outdoor space, designed to bring nature closer.
