A handsomely sturdy and versatile outdoor bench, Gerda also has a charming backstory. Copenhagen design studio Included Middle's Chris L. Halstrøm and Margrethe Odgaard wanted to recall a cherished memory of summer picnics and ever-present checkered tablecloths with the perforated aluminum seat pattern. Honoring Danish textile icon Gerda Henning as well, even the seating's colors are inspired by the delicate intensity of Nordic summer light.

“It's important that each of us think of sustainability in our everyday lives,” says Vibeke Panduro, who along with husband Jesper founded Danish brand Skagerak in 1976. “Invest in furniture that you absolutely love and eventually can pass on to the next generation.” She’s her own best example, recently furnishing a home with pieces some of which were 50 years old and juxtaposed with a new dining table from one of the company’s designers, Chris Liljenberg Halstrøm. Sustainability runs deep in the veins of the family-owned company, along with a timeless aesthetic rooted in the Scandinavian heritage and skilled craftmanship.

The offerings include a wide range of indoor and outdoor furniture, beautifully pared-down lighting and a number of natural wood décor and kitchen accessories, all produced from responsibly sourced timber and as an ethically conscious B Corp. Skagerak’s name is inspired by the strait connecting Denmark with Sweden and Norway, also called Skagerrak (with two Rs). “We like to think of ourselves as similar to the strait: forever the same—unchangeable—yet always on the move and presented in new ways,” Vibeke says. “Constantly mixing state-of-the-art ideas and methods with longstanding knowhow and virtues deeply embedded in the Nordic culture.”
