I really love the simplicity of this Wenge tray from amazing Canadian Scandi-o-philes and boutique owners, John Baker and Juli Daoust. Their design store Mjolk [Milk] in Toronto is filled to the rafters with delicious Japanese & Scandinavian design pieces and I hanker to go. A pilgrimage may just be in order. Teleporter anyone?
Check out their wonderful blog Kitka Design Toronto for tips and photographs from their extensive travels in Japan and Scandinavia….
This is what they have to say about zee glorious Tray of Wenge:
A lot of the mid century Danish wood workers like Jens Quistgaard made some beautiful objects using wenge. This specific piece Quistgaard designed for Danish company Kronjyden. The tray doesn’t necessarily have the same finesse as the wenge pieces he did for Dansk later, but the price was right and the grain was beautiful!
