    Aarikka is the Finnish company behind Keisarinna: a collection of wooden lamps, vases, candleholders and serving trays that launched in 1969. Run by three daughters whose mother created the line after being inspired by a wooden button in her studies at Helsinki Arts and Crafts Institute, each wooden bead is assembled either at home or in social workshops that help employ the disabled.

    Snag a lamp now and clear out some cabinet space: the spring 2013 Keisarinna collection will include trays, mugs, plates, and napkins. Thrilled!
