With a pleasingly offbeat appeal, Finnish Designer Mikko Laakkonen's Skirt Coffee Table takes an asymmetrical tack. To wit: the table's legs are partially wrapped by skirt-like panels with a diagonal slope for a sharp graphic effect. In 2 different heights, and either natural oak or black painted finish, Skirt works together in groupings or can easily hold its own.

“We wanted a challenge,” say husband and wife Mia and Torben Koed, founders of Copenhagen-based Woud, and they got one. Sitting around the dinner table a couple of years ago, they realized it was time to leverage their experience in private-label furniture and create something of their own. In just a few short years, they’ve masterminded one of the most influential Danish brands around.
Now adding accessories to the mix of furniture and lighting, Woud expands on the essential simplicity of Nordic design with an emphasis on finely crafted function and startlingly original form. Embracing upcoming design talents, both from Denmark and abroad, the couple is also keen on finding new materials that fit the Scandinavian tradition. Ultimately, they say, “We believe timeless design can express personalities, inspire people and create beautiful homes.”
