The Hansen Family

  • Posted by Neil Simonton on June 27, 2010 in Design
  • Hailing from a long line of architects and carpenters, Gesa Hansen raids the family archives to create her wonderful line of furniture inspired by mid-century modern Scandanavian design. Now based in Paris, Hansen sources sustainable oak from local forests to produce unique and beautiful pieces under The Hansen Family mark. The limited line includes a curvacious coffee table, a desk with colorful cubby holes, and our favorite, a trunk that opens vertically to reveal shelving, drawers, and a hanging rack.

    For more, check out the The Hansen Family website and follow their blog.
