It's not every day you see a wood pile in a kitchen, but it's a fitting detail for Saana and Olli's Finnish kitchen. After all, they're the keepers of a 70-year-old wood-burning stove!
As Saana tells Apartment Therapy in this recent House Tour:
The heart of the house is Porin Valu's heat-storing wood stove. It has been in use for over 70 years, and it is still working well on daily use in the winter time. A great, great piece of Finnish design.
I like the juxtaposition of the vintage stove and the contemporary Scandinavian style of the rest of the kitchen. And the wood piles! I know some may say keeping wood inside is a terrible idea (spiders, insects, etc.) but I'm guessing they wouldn't do it if it was that much of an issue. It just must be very convenient — and it looks pretty great, too.
