We, too, found ourselves hauling heavy terrace furniture to the shed and
In everyday life, we always try to make our lives as easy as possible so
we can relax at moments of rest. If the weather is at all passable, the terrace
is an ideal place.
To ensure that terrace furniture and other items withstand the elements,
it must be stored for the winter and then brought back again in the spring. In
addition, various stains and oils protect wood. These aren’t exactly fun
activities – they may be just the opposite, because they take time, energy and
furniture doesn’t have to be stored for the winter as the material used makes
it weather resistant.
decided to create Estonian designed outdoor furniture that withstands the
elements. We founded Tulavalla OÜ and hired a well-known Estonian designer Üllar Karro to
give our furniture a simple but comely form. We used stainless steel and
thermally modified wood as our materials. The furniture has a strong structure but is
light enough to move with ease.
furniture’s production process starts with design where the main emphasis is
the product’s ergonomics, simplicity and durability.
We then select the materials and produce the steel part. We carefully
saw the stainless steel components to size, weld them with gas tungsten arc
welding, then sand and polish if necessary. Once the steel part is ready, we saw
and sand the wood components and then fasten them to the steel frame using
stainless steel fasteners.
