things of wood.

fab four

1. A balancing metal disc on 5 sections of wood, this side table is all lightness and minimalism. The wood can be raw ash or oiled walnut with a white or black anodised top. Minimato table by Matthias Ferwagner, here

2. A little bit Bentwood, a little bit Elbow, this chair combines elements of some designer classics; simple and beautifully detailed in palest beech. It looks Scandinavian, but comes via Italy. Pelleossa chair by Francesco Faccin seen, here 

3. These lamps by Swedish company Note Design Studio are ceramic and wood, and very, very Scandinavian in their warmth and tactility.

4. Beautiful, decorative handcrafted pendants that can be hung individually or in a cluster, there are six variants, with names like Aztec and Abacus. Customisable in length and configuration, they could be simply hung from a hook. Bohemian, but in a good way. Bright Beads by Marz Designs, via Contemporist.
