The lively grain that is a much-appreciated characteristic of pine is celebrated in these elementary but effective table-top accessories by Livia Lauber. Alongside this honest use of material, carefully considered details enhance the design; such as a small gap beneath the edge to allow easy lifting and a softened edge to make the trays comfortable in the hand. The strong geometric shapes of the Square and Rectangular Tray appeal singularly or when stacked, in use or at rest.
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.
