10% reduction in carbon footprint by 2010 (next year!) is being pushed here in the UK as I heard on the radio this morning - even though Pigtown Design was blogging about this yesterday!

I have just taken delivery of a nest of Rosewood (probably Brazilian) tables designed by Severin Hansen Jr. and made by Haslev in the mid-sixties; I've had pieces by them before but it wasn't until I was thinking about the old climate warning chestnut, that I put two-and-two together.   Haslev were - whether by accident or design - light years ahead with their logo; Bambi in logging hell

I hope this is large enough to make out the left-hand label.....
