Louise Liljencrantz’s Debut Furniture Line Finds Harmony in Contrast
Swedish interior designer Louise Liljencrantz has launched her debut furniture series with Seed 0117, handcrafted by K.F.K. Master Cabinet-Makers and marketed through British outfit the Invisible Collection. The line comprises eight dining and side tables plus a minimalist bench. Standouts include a nubby half-globe of hand-gouged solid mahogany, finished with a fragrant linseed oil and set onto rounded legs to create a sculptural coffee table that measures 39 1/3 inches across and nearly a foot tall. A smaller trophylike variation in walnut (finished with a pigmented, oil-based wax) sports a faceted base. There’s also a Memphis-inspired console, side tables with angular tops, and a 59-inch-long walnut bench, accented with forged black steel and Nubuck leather.
