Tactile treasures: Picky Nicky’s favourite wooden buys
Picky Nicky selects his products of the week – a selection of wooden wonders – from WallpaperSTORE*, our very own creative market place for design
It’s officially autumn so I am falling for these tactile treasures for the table or desk, all formed in warm, wondrous wood.
The WallpaperSTORE* edit, selected from all over the globe, has been carved and crafted from solid walnut, oak and mahogany plus the rather more exotic sounding samak and Japanese kalopanax, before being hand-waxed or oiled for your pleasure.
This weeks picks to please the eyes, caress the hands and transform your spaces include Finn Juhl’s 1956 Turning Tray by Architectmade; Philipp Mainzer’s Pen tray and paperweight plus Mark Braun’s Turn fruit bowl by E15; Giulio Iacchetti’s Itri candleholder and Emmanuel Zonta’s Parè toy fish, both by Internoitaliano; Kihachi Kobo’s turned bowls by Japanese design company Metrocs; and if the scent of wood was not already good enough, Serra & Fonseca’s solid perfume comes wrapped in a mahogany case.
Our very own creative market place for design, WallpaperSTORE* stocks, wraps and dispatches our pick of the finely formed and forward thinking from around the world
