The other day I came across Danish brand dk3, after spotting the picture above. Norwegian designers Knudsen / Berg / Hindenes & Myhr were fascinated by the enormous dimensions that Dinesen is able to deliver their floor planks in. It inspired them to develop new kind of products based on the planks like this Plank Sofa made out of solid walnut, oak or Dinesen Douglas Fir. The sofa in the picture above comes with black leather cushions, if you are more a fabric fan there is a soft blue version as well.
The table by dk3 and it is coming close to what I have in mind for my own kitchen. The pictures remind me of the storefront styling I did some time ago. Black powder coated steel and wood is just a really good combination don't you think. This 'Lowlight' table designed by Jacob Plejdrup & Ole Kristoffersen comes in solid walnut, oak, wild-oak or smoked oak
