ARTEK Tarjoiluvaunu designed by Alvar Aalto in 1937. There is a white tile top and a rattan basket and big wheels. The wheeltray is made of Finnish birch tree and the handle is made of a rare dwarf birch tree that only grows in Lapland. I bought this table in the 80s and it is a classic piece I adore.

This is the bathroom sink - just a basic model -  with handy drawers and cabinets to store everything. The cabinets come from the same Finnish company called Puustelli as the kitchen kabinets.

This is our small apartment sauna. Since the most new apartments had a sauna built in, something typically Finnish :) This sauna has a set of led lights in the ceiling, which give a nice atmosphere and a dim lighting suitable for a sauna.

The guest room. This is an inexpensive chest of drawers from IKEA, and I wanted to add small items on the top to make the room feel more cosy. The book ends and the purple candle holders are from INDISKA and the round table lamp from IKEA.

This is from our guest room. Now I added a metal decorative tree with three small birds on the wall above the bed as a centerpiece. This room is decorated with old existing furniture, and the lamp I bought used. The round glass table with wheels is very handy, and it is from IKEA once again. I wanted a "crystal" pendant and I bought this small beauty in a small gift shop - I think it is a bit too tiny for this room, though.

I wanted to have a bench in the kitchen, and I found this one in IKEA. It is sturdy as it is made of real wood and it is very versatile. This summer I added pink cushions on it, now it looks much brighter. Pink Cushions, Real Wood, Dining Bench, Ikea, Restaurant, Kitchen, Table, Summer, Furniture

My kitchen. The kitchen was completely renovated in 2009 before we moved in in September 2010. The kitchen cabinets are Finnish design with a thick lacquer on the surface. The desktops just look like real wood. I especially like the colour scheme and the simple design and the big white tiles on the wall.
