What Have We Here ?
The Capirucho Side Table is inspired by a popular yet simple toy that has delighted many generations of Guatemalan children. Many of Labrica’s employees are of Guatemalan origin, so this design is a product both of their heritage and hard work. The piece has a playful silhouette created by carefully turning local Conacaste wood.
How to Use It ?
This table will add a friendly, colorful element to whatever space it resides within. Place it beside your bed for daily use, let it house your indoor plants next to a sunny window, or bring it into your living room for extra seating.
Why It Matters ?
Labrica works closely with forestry partners and local authorities in order to responsibly harvest wood for their furniture. Every other year, employees travel to nearby forests to plant trees as a gesture of gratitude to the forests that sustain their livelihood.
