Ash timber holds a special place in Danish and Nordic history and the immense Ash tree Yggdrasil is referred to as the "tree of life" in Norse Mythology. Yggdrasil sat in the centre of a circular area that was the gathering place of the gods. This gathering place was supported by three large roots that reached far below, to the wells of Uròarbrunnr and Mimisbrunnr, and the spring Hvergelmir. A visual reference to Yggdrasil can be seen through the circular table tops and oversized turned legs of the Grain tables.
The Grain coffee and side tables were designed to show off the natural grain structures found in Scandinavian ash, and are produced in solid ash. Combining large, flat surfaces with chunky, turned legs, this beautiful grain is highlighted through a natural finish, simply white soaped.
