This beautiful solid Elm Wood set is the perfect addition to complete a stylish living space. The desk and coffee table are cut from a single slab of elm. The solid steel legs crafted in the UK complement the steel butterfly inlays which protects the wood from moving. This is a traditional technique made famous by George Nakashima, a Japanese-American woodworker, who made the butterfly joint famous in the 1950s. He incorporated it into his nature-inspired woodworking pieces. Using the butterfly joints rather than resin retains the raw aesthetic of the wood. And prevents using harmful chemicals.
