Furniture: Superfolk in Dublin

Based in Dublin, Ireland, Superfolk is led by Irish designer Gearóid Muldowney, who creates products that "are a tribute to Ireland’s heritage of vernacular object making, playfully referencing a way of life rooted in the land, its animals, and its weather." We especially like Muldowney's dining/worktable made of local and sustainably sourced ash and oak ("a large, tough work area raised up on four simple legs") and his versatile set of stools. For further information, contact Superfolk.

Above: "If the kitchen is the heart of any home, then the table is the heart of any kitchen," Muldowney says.

Above: Superfolk's table works equally well as a simple desk.

Above: Stools are available in three sizes and come in ash or oak.

Above: The stools can be lashed together to make a short bench.
