Upon entering the space, one is immediately taken into the very essence of Garde Hvalsøe and the company’s tale of life and craft.
Dinesen Oak Squares laid in a quadratic pattern welcome guests at the entrance which is elegantly combined with a custom-made wine room in a distinctive architectonic demarcation created with smoked oak planks and glass. In the same way, bespoke floor-to-ceiling shelves in Dinesen Oak work as space dividers throughout the showroom.
The walls have a white structured surface and all the windows are covered up with white fabric, creating an even and neutral setting, where the exquisite handcraft is in focus.
The use of massive wood for floor, wall cladding and tailed design solutions, especially prevalent in the entrance design, emphasises the core values of Garde Hvalsøe: honest materials of the highest quality, traditional craftsmanship and high-class interior designs that are made to last a lifetime.
Furthermore, the showroom also offers a variety of specially made furniture including a minimalistic table with 12 persons seating created from planks in Dinesen Ash stained in light blue.
It is far from the first time that Dinesen and Garde Halvsøe’s handcrafts unite. After having designed many tailored kitchens for homes with Dinesen floors a thought arose in 2014. What if a kitchen was made which would be experienced as a natural extension of the wood floor? Letting Garde Hvalsøe’s handcraft and sense of quality meet Dinesen’s handcraft and quality wood. This spawn the kitchen model “Dinesen” that is one of Garde Hvalsøe’s most distinctive and iconic carpenter kitchens.
The design is characterised by letting the massive HeartOak planks figure in the entire kitchen construction, where the long and wide dimensions are used to create consistency in the design. In this way the grains of the wood twist and turn on the front of the drawers making the grandeur of the wood visible in the finished kitchen.
