Trunks are usually either used for storage or just large enough to be used for display. In the case of this particular furniture collection, the trunk is part of the product and was designed by Tchengram. The collection is presented at every international show there designs something for the world’s furniture market. So far there have been singular pieces, coffee tables and side tables, side tables with glass tops, dining chairs with wooden frames and dining tables with wood tops.
Each of these chairs has its own great feature that makes it stand out. That one eye-catching deep seat carved in wood is the literal and figurative feature of this collection. The whole chair is hand-made. It’s such a simple detail, yet it makes the piece stand out. The wood layers are rolled at angles and then quickly smoothed into shape. This technique was used for the collection to add comfort and texture to the design.
There are plenty of situations when a tree trunk can be an outstanding accent piece. When we talked about a tree in the garden a typical example was the vertical garden, the high fence or the patio furniture. That’s exactly the same thing you can say about this trunk table. It’s a beautiful accent piece with a simple and adaptable design.
The collection also includes a coffee table with a similar design. As the name of the collection suggests, the table is made from a tree trunk. The table is made from durable carbon fiber and has a water-based lacquer finish. It can seat up to 10 people and the dimensions are 54,30’’w x 41.7? d x 13.5’’h.
