It is often said that ‘life is what happens when you are busy making plans’: at PH Furniture, we know that the most important plans do not always get made at the office but rather at the kitchen table. Since tables are commonly at the heart of one of the most frequently used rooms in our homes, it is the piece of furniture that is by definition at the very centre of our lives.
What is the significance of a table? And why does the design detail of such a relatively simple piece of furniture really matter? Poul Henningsen (PH) was a designer and architect who believed that the small details of even the most ‘every day’ furniture really mattered. Although it’s presence may be quiet and it’s appearance refined and understated rather than flamboyant…a table is not just a table.
