Box chair dated to the early 13th century from Blakar farm in Gudbrandsdalen. The staves are made from birch while the panels are from pine. Part of the seat makes up the lid for the box with wooden hinges protruding on both sides, while a hole in the front seem to be from a missing lock.
No need to visit a chain store to purchase furniture, planters and decorative elements. Hunt antiques stores and flea markets to find unique pieces that have stood (and will continue to stand) the test of time.
