Pretty princess

Pretty princess

No piece of furniture has to be so resilient and stable. We eat and work on it, we put books and tools on it – and sometimes even our feet. No room is complete without a table. Reason enough to put this piece of furniture in the limelight: with an extraordinary piece of work designed by a young joiner true to the motto "old & new".



For his apprenticeship exam, the young Tyrolean joiner Florian Decker designed a special piece of furniture at his parents' joinery business in Itter: a make-up table, which provided not only storage space for cosmetics and jewellery but was also a piece of jewellery itself. A top unit rests on fine baroque feet, which Decker has coated with Aduro MDF-4in1 from ADLER in elegant ruby red. Behind the distinct forms of the top unit there is plenty of space for lipstick and mascara, a comb and necklace: Two drawers and a tray, with a mirror also integrated into its cover. The little table is crowned by the ornate back wall, which is reminiscent of a princess's diadem – and this unique piece also makes its owner a real princess.


Decker did not have to think twice when it came to choose the right wood, "For me, nut is the most beautiful hardwood there is. With its dark colour it creates a nice contrast to the strong ruby red – and is also hard enough to give the filigree legs the necessary stability."


It's no coincidence that the forms of the make-up table are reminiscent of Biedermeier and Art Deco, "I'm very interested in antiques and old furniture," says the young joiner. "I wanted to incorporate this classic design into a timeless piece of furniture." He succeeded: his make-up table was awarded the Joiner's Prize 2017 by Pro Holz Tirol. "This imaginatively designed and carefully crafted apprenticeship piece skilfully interprets historical forms with a touch of irony", the jury praised the work. We express our congratulations to the young apprentice!
