It is our choice to work only with local wood such as douglas and oak. They all have different characters and call for different shapes and treatments. We find that douglas is perfect for soft, round shapes that display the very distinct growth rings in the wood beautifully. Depending on the shape and the single piece of timber, every item will have a unique appearance and pattern.
We use the solid items primarily as small tables as we like the flexibility and the airy feeling of smaller tables used in combination with each other. That is also why you will not find any coffee tables in the Noorstad collection.
Please note: In the proces of drying, the wood will naturally crack. This is an intended part of the design, and as the season and temperature changes over time the wood may continue to work.
