Gather the family for fun and games

More versatile than a coffee table, less food-oriented than your dining table. It’s also higher than a normal table, making it more accessible for family and friends to stand or sit around. Play board games, do homework – and set up that puppet show.

An island of instant well-being

Even if your kitchen island stays in the kitchen, it can be used in untraditional ways. Whether you use it to prepare your best cup of tea or lean on it when leafing through a good read, this is the place to go for a break from everyday musts.
