Log Bench or Table – Pölkkypenkki tai -pöytä

By | Spruce | No Comments

This log bench is from Puusto design.

The wood is spruce and dimensions: high 53 cm, 21 cm x 23 cm. This model is without special finishing like wax. I like that this log is not exact symmetrical. This log is from winter fallen spruce which was located on the shore of Saimaa (the biggest lake in Finland).

 

You can use this log as a bench or as a small table like in the picture at the front of sofa.

Chestnuts in Guimarães in Portugal – Kastanjoita Portugalin Guimaraisissa

By | Chesnut, decoration | No Comments

It was last autumn in September when I visited in Guimarães (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guimarães) in Portugal. There were chestnut trees everywhere in the old city and I collected these beautiful chestnuts to this autumn picture. What a nice colours. It is little bit sad that chestnuts do not keep their best colours when aged. There are the best just after dropping down from the tree.

Keräsin nämä kauniit kastanjat viime syksynä vieraillessani Portugalin Guimarãisissa. Kastanjapuita oli kaikkialla vanhassa kaupungissa. Kastanjat näyttävät kaikista parhaimmilta juuri näin tiputtuaan puusta, ajan mittaan ne menettävät parhaimman hohtonsa ja värinsä, joten niistä on vaikea tehdä mitään tai käyttää esim. sisustuksessa.
