Although there is no space for a separate dining room in this couple's apartment, their kitchen is roomy enough for an extra dining area. A traditional Scandinavian interior is filled with functional space-saving furniture: a NORDEN gateleg table with drop-leaves has a surface resistant to liquids, food stains, oil, heat, scratches and bumps. The 6 drawers under the table top can be used for cutlery, table napkins or candles. At the table, there are two easy-to-move RÅSKOG stools, and when the couple is waiting for guests, helps the KULLABERG swivel chair.
