Terp Upholstered Tables and Poufs Inspired by Dutch Mounds

Designed by San Francisco-based Mike & Maaike for Artifort, the Terp Collection is a series of upholstered tables and poufs that can be arranged into a landscape for the home or office. The rounded forms were inspired by Dutch “Terps”, which are man-made mounds created to offer a higher elevation when it rains in the flood-prone areas of The Netherlands.

The sides rise up at a gentle angle to form the rounded tops for comfortable sitting or to hold a solid oak tabletop if you prefer. Terps come in two heights – 32 or 48 cm – and are available with table surfaces in widths of 63, 70, or 100 cm. The stitching at the seams adds a beautiful detail on the upholstery, which comes in a variety of fabric choices.
