I must admit that I have an obsession with beautiful wood. Wood tables or any other raw wood, like my kitchen counter or gorgeous old floors, but most of all tables. I spend a lot of time in Copenhagen’s coffee shops when I work on photography, blogging, planning or just hanging out with friends, and the places that I end up going back to all have one thing in common. Beautiful tables. I know this might sound incredible silly to you, but for me, there is nothing more important for productivity than an inspiring place to work.
Growing up we had this incredible big wooden table where we would eat together in one end, and at the other end my brother & sister and I would play, draw and do our homework. I just remember this incredible sensation of light coloured, soft wood that would get warm from the sun and the feeling of endless space. I won’t dismiss this as the root of my little obsession. It is just so beautiful!
One of my favourite places has all kinds of different wood tables. For instance, these two first photos are taken in the same café, only on different tables. I love the diversity of wood, and how its environment so easily affects the appearance of it. The next photo is of this beautiful pearl necklace I got last summer, on an old wooden table that has been subject to the seasons changing. Standing outside in all kinds of weather it has gained all these beautiful little changes in colour and structure.
This little card, written with a delicious cup of coffee on a gorgeous wood table is for my mother and I just can’t help myself when it comes to these kinds of things. I simply have to take a picture. Beautiful surface, colours, structures, I’m smitten!
Easter weekend is upon us and I hope you’re all enjoying some time off.
Preferably outside in the sunshine!
