In the sea between Copenhagen and Malmö, lies the island Saltholm. Sixteen square kilometers of desolate, Danish countryside. A handful of people live here, under fairly Spartan conditions. At least they have the company of some five hundred cows. By crow flight, it’s not even ten kilometers to both Copenhagen and Malmö city centers. Total seclusion, total closeness. We designed our lounge range Saltholm, trying to catch that double feeling. To be close and still far away. Close to Cava and good friends, one night in June, when the sun doesn’t really descend. Far from the strains of every day life. We admit we didn’t capture the austerity of in the design, though. It’s rather luxorious. The teak frames restrained design is balanced by curved, lush pillows.


Studio Norrlandet

Jari and Anna founded Skargaarden 2007 and has since then been developing the brand. Their interest in design and furniture was the reason they started Skargaarden and later on also why they decided to start Studio Norrlandet.

Designing a beautiful outdoor piece of furniture is a challenge as you have to take into account so much more than what is designed for indoors. The challenge is what drives them to design furniture beautiful enough to place indoors, durable enough for any harch weather challenge’s.

Jari has a background as a cabinet maker trained in fine carpentry. After finished carpentry education Jari found out that finishing last and being the most thorough in class probably wasn’t the most profitable profile for future employers. Now, many years later, it is an advantage in high end outdoor furniture design. Anna interest in acrylic painting and art makes their partnership exciting and above all fun.
