Woodnotes | Side & end tables

Woodnotes is Finnish design brand founded in 1987 by textile artist Ritva Puotila and her son Mikko Puotila. The essential idea behind Woodnotes was to create modern design from durable, ecological and beautiful natural material, spun paper yarn. Today, Woodnotes’ collections have expanded from paper yarn carpets to furniture and home accessories, but spun paper yarn products still form the core of the company.

Woodnotes was the first company to utilize paper yarn in modern design solely because of its own qualities and certain look, not as a substitute for other materials. Today, Woodnotes is an internationally awarded brand whose products are sold in over 40 counties. One of its most successful products is Harri Koskinen’s k-chair that has quickly become a well-known classic of Finnish design.

This brand has collaborated with: Harri Koskinen, Ilkka Suppanen, Minna Ahokas, Ritva Puotila, Tanja Sipil, Woodnotes, Ulla Koskinen, Mari Isopahkala, Raffaella Mangiarotti

The best side tables and end tables from Scandinavia

Side tables, end tables and accent tables are agile and versatile small tables, which add useful extra space to any room. Side tables are ideal for example as plant stands or hallway tables and provide a place to lay down coffee cups, lamps and ornaments. A beautifully designed end table can be a decorative, sculptural decoration element in its own right. We also stock a broad selection of coffee tables, nightstands, sideboards and dressers. If you are looking for a side table suitable for outdoor use, take a look at our selection of outdoor tables.

Finnish Design Shop has selected a versatile range of high-quality Scandinavian side tables, end tables and accent tables in many colours and materials. You can select the tone of your side table to match the colour scheme of your home or create a contrast in the room with a table of a different colour. The most common materials of side tables are wood and metal, and the tabletop can be made, for example, from easy to care laminate, airy glass or luxurious marble. As the forms of side tables and end tables are often delicate and light, they are easy to place in various locations without making the space look overly crammed. A rectangular narrow side table can be placed by a window or against a wall, and a round side table is pretty next to an armchair.

Finnish Design Shop offers a wide range of side tables and end tables from Finland, Scandinavia and farther away. Our selection includes both design gems from the 1900s by famous names, such as Alvar Aalto, Eero Aarnio and Charles & Ray Eames, and modern Scandinavian end tables from recent years. Side tables by Artek, Nikari, Showroom Finland and Woodnotes represent Finnish woodworking skills, and favourites by Hay, &Tradition and Woud are prime examples of Danish design.
