Dining table from our Craftsman collection. The table is made of white cedar wood with metal strips, giving it a beautiful vintage look. It is nice to combine it with different wooden and metal chairs.
The craftsman collection was designed some years ago with inspiration from wooden stools that were used by labourers in factories in the 30s in Chicago. The thin edge of the stool comes back in the design of the wall shelves.
The wood used for this collection is White cedar wood, which is grown on plantations in Indonesia. It is a light coloured wood that is often used in furniture. It has the same hardness as oak wood and it is resistant to decay and fungi. Like teak wood, it is not an indigenous tree and does not grow in the primary forests.
Since 2016 the Indonesian government has regulated all timber trade, with a system to trace all wood that is exported back to the source, where the trees were cut. This has been part of a the FLEGT trade agreement with the EU, to guarantee that only legal wood is imported into the EU.
These aspects together make white cedar wood production in Indonesia and its use for furniture both economically and environmentally sustainable.
