When seen through the eyes of a craftsman, however, such castoffs can become functional works of art. The prototype Kerf Table set is one such example of beauty borne from nature’s anomalies. Each of the ten limited edition tables is created from a slice of a single intact burl that Design Principal Alan Maskin recovered from a Port Townsend, Washington lumberyard. Each unique tabletop highlights the twists and turns of the burl’s raw edge. Kerf cuts create barely-there slots for metal plates, forming the connection for three forged and welded steel legs fabricated by Anvil House in Seattle. The surface of the tables features a hand-rubbed oil finish by Seattle furniture artisan Steve Clark. Maskin designed the tables to be intentionally versatile; appropriate in groups or singularly, in…

Anna Malmberg is a well-known Swedish photographer. She grew up in the north of Sweden, surrounded by forests and lakes, with ghosts and spirits as her closest neighbors.She started experimenting as a photographer at age 14, because it was the only way she had to create a bridge between fairy tales and reality,timeless fantasy and present time. It was there, where her style was born. Personally i like the totally artistic, bohemian and nonchalant style she has , with her love for earthy colours and the choice for natural, ecological materials.Her house is decorated with a monochrome palette and filled mostly with vintage pieces so her son’s room could not resist the same dreamy feeling which goes straight to our heart. https://northernsisters.se/inspiration/annamalmberg/the-doll-house/
