A Scandi Love Affair at our little Cabin: Carl Hansen & Søn Nesting tables
Paid partnership with Carl Hansen & Søn, all words are my own and I only ever work with brands I love

Hello, how are you this bright and sunny day? 
Do you live in a small space or have small rooms to finish? When you only have 30m2 / 322 ft2 to play with, like we do at the cabin, you’re constantly on the lookout for furniture that works well in a compact living area. And these CH004 Nesting Tables designed by none other than Hans J. Wegner – one of the most prolific furniture designers of all time, couldn’t be more perfect! 
I’ve always been a big fan of nesting tables since they are so versatile – and it’s incredible to think that this particular set was first launched in 1952! The beauty of good design is that it’s timeless, and the lightness, distinctive craftsmanship and classic Scandinavian minimalism of these fine specimens, ensure they work equally well in homes today – and no doubt fifty years from now too.  Which is why Carl Hansen & Søn has recently relaunched them. 
Here’s a closer look:

For a small space, compact and multifunctional furniture is key, and the Nesting Tables come in a set of three different sizes which nestle together to create one smaller unit, or they can also be pulled out for a larger surface area. 

Sidenote: The little ceramic plate is by Sara Bergman, who’s home I featured here. Sara is currently exhibiting at Norrviken – a beautiful garden down the road and I couldn’t resist picking this up in the museum shop! The knotted candle is by Swedish ceramicist Emmeli Hultqvist

You can also choose to divide up the tables and use them as a side table and coffee table.

In the background you can catch a glimpse of the FK10 Plico Chair which is also from Carl Hansen & Søn – sadly I rarely get to sit there as it is highly coveted by the entire family – and I’m never quick enough!

The craftsmanship that has gone into the tables is incredible. Look closely and you’ll see the subtle rounded corners which means there’ll be no sharp in-take of breath should you bump into them (easily done in a compact space!), and the joinery and oak finish is so ultra smooth (this kind of thing warms my design heart!).

If you love these Danish beauties as much as I do, you can find out more about the CH004 Nesting Tables here – and check out the other finishes, which include oak, soap, oak / walnut, oil and an incredible, dark walnut, oil. 
Could you imagine having these nesting tables in your home? 
We are so looking forward to heading up to the cabin tomorrow for the night. It’s forecasted to be 22 degrees Celsius / 71 degrees Fahrenheit – an absolute corker considering the winter we have just had, and we need to make the most of it before it drops by 10 degrees nest week – baaaah! Barbecue at the ready! 
Speaking of our little cabin, we were so happy to see it featured in the summer edition of Simply Scandi magazine in the UK this month. I wrote a guide to dreamy Scandinavian summer destinations in the same issue if you’re looking for inspiration! I believe there’s a digital version available here
The next step is to work on the garden. The neighbours put up a chicken wire fence and every time I see it, I weep a little inside! I’m thinking a hydrangea hedge will do the trick, but maybe you have other suggestions? I’m all ears!
I hope you have a fabulous weekend. See you Monday!

A big thank you to Helen Sturesson for helping me to capture these nesting tables, it was such a fun day!
