We love the simplicity of the side tables and desks in the Mun Collection by Dutch company SlowWood. The goal of designer Christien Starkenburg is to create "timeless pieces of quality furniture with a raw natural elegance and a low impact on our planet." The pieces, which pair solid ash or oak tops with iron bases, are made by local craftsmen in the Netherlands. To view the entire Mun Collection and for more information, go to SlowWood.
