After a two-year break, the world’s biggest event for Nordic design, the Stockholm Furniture Fair, will be held in the Swedish capital in early February. We at Selka will be delighted to meet you there, at stand A21:10! There will be 400 exhibitors from 31 countries, making the fair an extremely attractive meeting place for all interior design and furniture professionals the world over. More than 30,000 visitors from 100 countries are expected to attend.
Together with SELKA
Selka has been making furniture for decades for spaces where people interact. The cornerstones of our collection have long been restaurant table bases and bar stools, and in recent years we have also became known for height-adjustable tables for working together and other various purposes. In 2022, we launched our Pico table collection, which has become a popular side table to go with sofas and ottomans.
Our motto, Together with Selka, also expresses our desire to work with other furniture manufacturers, resellers and designers. Selka is a dependable original equipment manufacturer for several European furniture brands, and we sell our furniture mainly through our retailers. Selka’s resellers network is expanding in the Nordic countries and elsewhere in Europe. Learn about our collection and contact us. We are always looking for new resellers!
Selka’s new Side collection, designed by Mikko Laakkonen
At the upcoming Stockholm fair, we will be launching our latest furniture collection, Side. Designed by Mikko Laakkonen, this is a light furniture collection that was originally conceived for a restaurant project. It consists of a sofa, bench, chair, ottoman footstool, coffee table and a shelf – that is, everything you need for a meeting space. The metal frames of the chairs can be painted the same color as the upholstery, allowing for a good range of material combinations. And of course, these would not be Selka products unless customization was a simple matter!
At our stand at the Stockholm fair (A21:10), we will present the following products:

Together with artist Taru Kantonen
Artist Taru Kantonen and Selka joined forces to create a new brand image for Selka. Interior decorators and artists can provide valuable inspiration for each other, and the rich palette of colors Selka is known for inspired Kantonen to paint a series of lively paintings on the theme of human interactions.“I wanted to capture how art and interior design can work together, how colors and techniques can be combined, and most of all how interior design and art can promote interactions between people.”
A warm welcome to learn more about this inspired partnership!
Taru Kantonen, artist and designer, Vanha Vääksy.
“I paint what I envision in my mind. Before I start painting, I process a thought in my mind and then transfer it to the canvas, usually with a knife or brush. Both the process and the end result on the canvas come about intuitively. I like to experiment with materials and different painting techniques, challenging myself to continue developing all the time. The union of thoughts and materials creates new paintings, inspired by street art and contemporary art. My motto is: Just because color is life.”
