Our New Foldable Outdoor Furniture at the Cabin

Sponsored by Carl Hansen & Søn, all words are my own and only work with companies I love and think you will too. Thank you for supporting the wonderful brands that make My Scandinavian Home possible. 

Hej! In Sweden, the Easter week serves as an ideal opportunity to re-open the summer cottage after a long winter. Hearths are swept, cobwebs banished and now that the snow has thawed, furniture can be lifted outside once again. What a great moment! 

Having completed our tiny cabin in 2022, our attention has turned to the garden and one of the biggest steps was to choose a garden table. For someone who struggles to make decisions (ahem understatement!), this was no easy feat. Especially as I had criteria to fill such as it needing to be lightweight and easy to store away in winter as well as small enough to fit on the cabin decking (or moved around at whim!). And of course it needed to look beautiful too!  

In the end I settled on the beautiful Danish BM630 dining table from Carl Hansen & Søn. Designed by Børge Mogensen in the late 1960s, it's part of the Deck Chair Series and the table is made from solid teak. I fell in love with the slatted lines - and how practical it is as it folds completely flat!  

I love this view of the church. Every Saturday at 6pm the bell rings for the best part of five minutes (driving Per insane in the process!!). It is a tradition called 'helgmålsringning' that stems back to olden times to signify the start of weekend mass and the weekend as whole. 

I selected the BM4570 dining chairs to go with the table - also designed by Børge Mogensen and part of the same Deck Chair Series. They're made from solid teak with a suspended seat in water resistant Sunbrella fabric so we don't need to worry about a little rain here and there (important in this part of the world!). Best of all, they fold neatly away and can even be hung on the wall when not in use! 

And finally, since I was looking for a few versatile pieces, I chose the BM5768 deck chair footstool which doubles up as seating and a little teak BM5868 side table from the same collection. They're so nifty as they can be moved with you as you follow the sun! 

I hope you like our new outdoor table and chairs set! Now all we need is some sunshine. Roll on summer, we're ready for you!

In case you're on the look out, Carl Hansen & Søn has lots of other beautiful outdoor furniture too - the new collection in particular looks beautiful! 

Have you started preparing your garden for the summer yet? If so, you might like to check out these posts for some outdoor inspiration: 

Or perhaps you live in the southern hemisphere and winding down for the season? If so, do you do like the Swedes and store your furniture indoors or cover it up for protection? I'd love to know what's the norm around the world! 

I'll be back tomorrow with a final post before the holidays, hopefully see you then! 

Stor kram' from Sweden! 



  1. This is a gorgeous grouping. At our home, in Indiana, I over-winter our chairs and table in storage, as well. The winters can be harsh, and the winds able to roll things away like tumbleweeds!
    Especially love the tassled umbrella. I have a similar one and hang twine coddled mason jars with candles from the cross-rods underneath the awning in the evening.
    In our small town, the county courthouse chimes on the hour and has always been one of the charms of living here.
    I know you'll enjoy the many al fresco dinners there - smaklig måltid!

  2. Perfect choice! They blend well with the surroundings/garden, are beautifully crafted, versatile and I love church bells:-)

  3. We live in the country on a farm and wind can be very strong during the winter, plus we do get snow at least once in winter months. Consequently, we store our outdoor furniture over the winter.
    We have a very heavy wrought iron bench that stays on the front porch with a matching small table. I can go there and bundle up with a heavy coat, hat, and pile on a blanket. I need a bit of fresh air in those long winter days.

  4. I love this set! I also prefer outdoor furniture which folds up and can be stored in winter. Great choice!

  5. Your selection of outdoor furniture for your cabin is so handsome! They appear to be very well made and sturdy, too. I love how they look in your garden setting as they seem aesthetically perfectly appropriate for the environment. We lived in the Mid-Atlantic/Northeast of the US for 30 years before retiring and quickly learned to store our patio furniture during the winter. We found out that shoveling a foot or two of snow with the furniture in the way was a pain and we didn’t have to touch up the finish in the spring if we just took the time to put it away. Our current rural setting in the middle of the US doesn’t get “real” snow but my current dilemma is finding pieces that suit the setting without being either overdone or trite. Your furniture is beautiful and giving me ideas!
