This bold and clean design brings a quiet confidence to any space. The rounded legs and smooth top of the Dowel Occasional appear to meet effortlessly, creating an illusion of floating. In actuality it is supported by a hidden under-frame that creates a clean look while ensuring its robustness and integrity. The Dowel Occasional is manufactured from solid timber, with the curves really showcasing the warmth and beauty of the natural timber grain.

Designed and manufactured in New Zealand by Harrows, the Dowel Occasional is a showstopping design that forms part of the wider Dowel Collection. It is designed to create a warm and welcoming coffee nook for colleagues to gather and collaborate, or as a relaxing waiting area. Being NZ made means the collection allows for a high level of personalisation, with the size and finish selected to suit the look of your reception area. Also available as a leaner and meeting table, the Dowel is a fun and vibrant solution for the NZ commercial scene.
