This is what Danish design is all about - simplicity, comfort, function, beauty. This is a vintage table and set of chairs for everyday dining.
Get flooring material and make a table. Find a base, any kind of base and the design will be yours alone. This Scandinavian table design was shot by me in Illums Bolighus. It also allows for the appreciation of the natural wood characteristics.
Beautiful strong black wall of storage accented by the warmth of colorful books and a useful ladder. The large round stools are sculptural elements combined with the square table in a light wood that also is a contrast and appears to float.
I love this dining room for several reasons.
I love its simplicity
I love its eclectic nature, blending old and modern
I love the use of contrast
I love the use of art
I love the sculptural (and rectilinear) shapes and forms

Swedish gateleg table seen in Atelier September in Copenhagen. Definitely fitting for a modern home with its clean lines and traditional, yet light/modern finish.
Modern and tradition playing perfectly well together. A private dining room at the Madklubben restaurant in Copenhagen.
