HAY Copenhague CPH20 Table & About A Chair AAC22
This compact, contemporary dining set from Danish brand HAY is perfect for small spaces. The Copenhague Dining Table is part of a collection that was originally designed for the University of Copenhagen, by Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec. Functional and elegant, it features 3 legs and a round top, available in a range of diameters.
Providing the perfect accompaniment, the HAY About A Chair has a simple and intuitive form that exudes Scandinavian style.
Gubi Epic Dining Table & Bat Chair
A great example of contemporary Scandinavian design, the Gubi Bat Chair has become a modern classic since its release in 2018. The seat shell takes inspiration from the chair’s namesake, reinterpreting the webbed wings of a bat to create an ergonomic seat with lots of character.
To create a real dining statement, we recommend pairing this inviting chair with the eye-catching Gubi Epic Dining Table. Inspired by historical constructions such as the Colosseum and Saint Peter’s Basilica in Rome, this dining table is crafted from tactile travertine stone and combines two simple geometric shapes, the circle, and the hexagon.
Carl Hansen & Søn CH337 Dining Table & CH24 Wishbone Chair
A classic Nordic style dining set from Carl Hansen & Søn, both the CH337 dining table & CH24 Wishbone chairs were designed by Hans J. Wegner. A cabinet maker by trade, Wegner is regarded as one of the greatest Danish designers of the 20th century, admired for his mastery of wood.
One of the most famous symbols of Danish furniture design, the CH24 or Wishbone Chair has been in continuous production since 1950. Every Wishbone chair is made by hand at the Carl Hansen & Son factory in Denmark, following Wegner’s original specifications. Here shown in a beautiful mahogany finish, this timeless set is sure to age with grace, and will never lose its style.
&Tradition In Between dining series
Designed by Sami Kallio for &Tradition, the In Between series is unmistakably Nordic in style with contemporary appeal. Made from solid oak and using traditional woodturning techniques, the curves and angles of the table legs reflect the curves of the In Between chairs – making them the perfect match.
Reflecting the designers love for wood, the series is produced using two classical techniques; compression moulding, (making it light and thin, yet strong) and woodturning, (a technique that uses a lathe to achieve greater detail). Choose from a range of table sizes to suit the size of your space.
Fritz Hansen Super-Elliptical Dining Table & Series 7 Chair
A dining table with a surprising story, the Super-Elliptical Table was inspired by the designer Piet Hein’s solution to a traffic problem in Stockholm in 1969: a super elliptical roundabout. The curved corners of the table make this a democratic design, where everyone who sits at the table is given an equal position.
An icon of Nordic design, we think the Series 7 dining chair is the perfect pairing for this dining set. Also from Fritz Hansen, and designed by Arne Jacobsen, this distinctive silhouette is recognised all over the world. Lightweight, stackable, and available in an array of beautiful colours, the Series 7 has been ergonomically designed to allow the user hours of undisturbed comfort.
Muuto 70/70 Table & Fiber Armchair
Taking the traditions of Nordic design and combining them with forward-thinking materials. Muuto’s ambition is to deliver new perspectives on Scandinavian design.
Named after the dimensions of its legs, the Muuto 70/70 Table is a simple yet beautifully detailed design. Its Nordic appeal is exhibited in the details, such as the slanted edges and the detailing in the tabletop. Also exuding comfort, the Muuto Fiber Chair provides the perfect accompaniment to this dining set. With every line and curve designed to balance maximum comfort with minimum space, it perfectly embodies the Scandinavian design principles of functionality and simplicity.
Skagerak Georg Dining Table, Stool and Bench
Scandinavian simplicity at its best, the Skagerak Georg collection is the perfect combination of functionality, quality, and expert craftsmanship. Designed by Chris Liljenberg Halstrøm, the simple silhouettes are inspired by a mix of Nordic sensuality and Japanese minimalism.
A great choice for smaller spaces, the compact Georg Dining Table sits at least six, without taking up too much floor space, with the Georg Bench and Georg Stools neatly tuck away underneath the dining table. Compact but never comprising on comfort, the Georg Bench and Stools each come with a woollen seat cushion.
