Form Meets Function in the Great Outdoors: Peregrine Camp Furniture from Japan

What is it about Japanese camping gear that always seems to look so good? Chalk it up to a flair for good design and the ability to create practical furniture for small spaces. Case in point: Peregrine, a small Japanese outfitter that makes outdoor goods by hand. We’ve long been fans of the brand Snow Peak and are now adding this latest Japanese find to our camp purveyors list. And while Peregrine puts their furniture to the test in the great outdoors, its pieces look equally at home in the garden. Added bonus: All easily store flat when not in use. 

Peregrine Camp Furniture Wing Table

Above: The folding Wing Table sits low to the ground and is made of walnut; ¥22,800 ($222). It’s covered in a combination Tablecloth/Apron, ¥3,800 ($37), that is hand-stitched in Iwate by women survivors of the Japanese earthquake and tsunami of 2011.
