“Perfect work-from-home companion” – here’s how our customers feel about SELKA tables | SELKAstore

We have asked our SELKA users to send us pictures and comments about the tables they have purchased. What kind of experiences have our customers had?

Well, it wasn’t our specific goal to create a zen working environment, but if that’s the end result, we are more than pleased. :-D

Have a look at the different models in the SELKA work desk product line!

Essi about MAHTUVA XL 90x60 cm

Feb. 9th 2021

Bought this table three months ago and have been using it almost every day since. It fits perfectly my screen, laptop and other small office supplies, like notebooks and coffee mugs. The white table looks modern. Very happy with the product. Would recommend 10/10.

Keith Y. about MAHTUVA M 68x40 cm

Feb. 5th 2021

Great quality and works perfectly! I like that it's not electric so there are no cords and it's easier to move around. Their customer service is also excellent! The screws were missing from my package but they immediately replied and shipped them out so everything worked out.

Thank you Selka for the wonderful product! At first, I wasn't sure to take Sopiva or Mahtuva, but swift and excellent customer service helped me and made my decision easier. I am more than happy with my new Sopiva table. Kiitos Selka!

We have tried to the best of our abilities to come up with 21st century furniture, the kind that fits into the home office even in smaller apartments.

Kati H. about MAHTUVA L 78x50 cm

Sept. 25th

I bought Selka’s Mahtuva size L desk with spring. The desk is very stable and sturdy and holds even two screens without wobbling effect. The desk was delivered in a package and was easily assembled with only one tool that was included. Height is easily adjustable because of the spring, so you can work standing up. With only one leg, it fits in quite a small space so it is ideal for home offices.

Awesome and stylish looking table that fits perfectly to the very small space that I have available. And it can be easily moved, since no electricity is needed to manoeuvre it. Love it <3

Wonderful addition to a work from home setup!

It's brilliant to have a place to feel comfortable typing on the laptop without sitting all the time. Such a beautiful product!

“Complements rather than dominates”. We couldn’t have put it better ourselves. Thank you.

 

Sarah C. about MAHTUVA S 50x35 cm

Jul. 8th

Purchased on my brother’s recommendation for improving presentations by standing, I’ll be using my MAHTUVA  for online lectures and talks this coming academic year. With a small office this complements rather than dominates my working space - it’s just brilliant.

The SELKA tables are height adjustable, but with quality design, they are also durable, sturdy and stable.

 

Matthijs W. about MAHTUVA S 50x35 cm

Perfect work-from-home companion. The desk itself is very stable and has a high-quality office grade feel to it.

Last, but definitely not least, we pride ourselves in our quick and reliable delivery times. Outside of Finland, we deliver within 10 days; in Finland, within 4 days.

 

Ville T. about MAHTUVA M 68x40 cm

Aug. 19th

The table is steady, feels very well made and looks great. I can fit my laptop, mouse, phone, notebook and a coffee cup easily on the table even though the table is relatively compact and does not take much space.  The delivery of the table was superfast and it was easy to assemble. Highly recommended!

Customer stories - First users around the world

We have asked the first user of each country to send a picture and maybe a comment about the table. Hopefully we will get many nice pictures from all over the world.

David, Belgium. Our first customer outside of Finland

SOPIVA Oak, warm green

"And we are loving it! The design is both elegant and functional."

 

 Gerard, Netherlands. Which one is more beautiful?

SOPIVA Oak, warm grey

"Im very happy with the new desk. The quality and the design is superb! Both the iron and oak wooden parts exceed in quality far above what I normally find.

The desk was very easy to assemble, just takes a few minutes.  Although the delivery was a bit slow due to the transport company, the communication and service with SELKA was very good. I understand SELKA will get another transport company to handle that for the future.

But other than that I rate this product with 5 starts! It's worth waiting for!"

 

Friederike, Germany. A perfect match of laptop and and the table top.

SOPIVA Aluminium, warm green

"I really like the colour, it is exactly how I imagined it based on the photos on the website and the pictures you send me via the chat. The size of the table is perfect as our guest room / office (since Covid-19) is only 6m2 big. We especially need the room for when either me or my boyfriend are in conference calls so that the other one can continue to work without distraction in the living room and for that the table is perfect! The gas feather mechanism (or however this mechanism is called) works perfectly fine and the time of writing this, I am using the desk in stand up position and am really enjoying it. 

I even think that after Corona, this table could serve as a  nice table next to the sofa or so with a nice vase or candle on it. 

This was the first time I bought something on the internet that I have seen on Instagram and even though I first a bit skeptical, I am very happy that I trusted you and now have this beautiful desk."

 

Jan-Philipp, Denmark. What a legendary "before and after" series.

SOPIVA ALuminium, warm green

"I just received my order. It is brilliant, I am absolutely happy with the quality, very sturdy build and it looks great. 

Since I will have some more days working from home this is good timing, see before and after pics attached. Can you tell the difference ;-)."

 

Kai, Spain. Why not working outside if you have that view

MAHTUVA L, black

 

Patricjus, Poland. Which one was first, the laptop or the table?

MAHTUVA S, black

"An extremely space saving, versatile and affordable solution for home,
whenever you need to use your laptop sitting or standing. Just in time, for our new reality. Absolutely love it!"

 Sandor, Hungary. So SOPIVA (a perfect match in Finnish) to this beautiful house.

 

David, Austria. So nice place to work in front of the window.

„The table is very robust and heavy, that makes him very special and of higher value. I was also very surprised that the table gets higher without pushing it up, you only have to move the handle, that underlines the great quality! And also the support by Juha, the founder of the company, was very special and helpful. Thank you for this great product, I‘m very happy :)“ 

 

Darja, Latvia. 

SOPIVA Aluminium, warm green

"Table is exactly what we expected for small apartment - easy to assemble, easy to move, stable, don't need a lot of space and you can sit or stand.  Colour is the same I imagine and it is nice! Great, useful idea!"

 

Liliana, Switzerland

MAHTUVA L, Black

I am very happy with my MAHTUVA. It is very nicely done. It is not as big as the traditional standing desk but still big enough to fit my laptop, monitor and I still have some extra room available. Adjusting the high is very easy. It definitely exceeded my expectations.

SELKA – Our Story

SELKA – Our Story

 

Selka is a Finnish manufacturer of public space furniture that has been operating since 1985. In this time, Selka has furnished many objects familiar to Finns. You may have sat at a group of our tables on cruise ships in the Baltic Sea or Caribbean. Perhaps in one of the numerous cafés and restaurants all over the world. We work closely with Finland’s leading furniture designers. Our product range includes furniture designed by Ari Kanerva, Tapio Anttila, Timo Saarnio, Yuki Abe, and Markku Pakkanen, for example.

HISTORY OF SELKA OY

Our story began in the municipality of Pohja with a need for electronics molds made from aluminum. Eventually, we started making aluminum mold furniture under the name of Selkate ky. Urpo Kallonen, the founder, renamed the company Selka-line Oy. Inspired by the furniture manufacturing tradition in Lahti, he built a new factory in the municipality of Nastola. Durable and high-quality furniture solutions, such as ours, are especially suited to the needs of the shipping industry and restaurants. Our reputation spread far and wide, and Selka’s aluminum-molded furniture components began to be delivered abroad. During peak years, our exports accounted for more than 50% of production.

THE POWER QUINTET

The passionate visionaries of our company’s core team – Janne, Jari, Juha, Mika, and Matti – have decades of experience in manufacturing high-quality furniture and long careers at Selka. The goal of this power quintet is to strengthen the furniture market with Finnish know-how and to offer public space furniture where elegance, ecology, and sustainability play a significant role.

ECOLOGICAL

Selka Oy offers timeless and hard-wearing furniture solutions whose primary raw materials are steel, aluminum, and wood – all of which are recyclable. In our own production we primarily use recycled aluminum and limit the use of fresh aluminum to the casting process of structures that require it.

With the replacement of wearing parts, such as wooden table tops, wooden seats, and upholstery, the product becomes new again. Our replacement system is an excellent ecological and cost-effective solution for color and style changes required for a company’s brand renewal. In essence, you get a completely new look for public space furniture quickly, effortlessly, and cheaply with full-service tactics. Contact us and ask for more information!

QUICK, HIGH-QUALITY DELIVERIES AND CUSTOM SOLUTIONS

We offer a wide range of public space furniture for all needs. Selka products combine Finnish steelmaking traditions with modern manufacturing methods. Even more, custom furniture solutions are possible, thanks to high-quality surface materials.

In addition to the basic product range, Selka furniture can be customized as exactly to customer needs. There are about 150 stock colors ready, in addition to which we can tint and shade the products completely according to your wishes.

Speed is our advantage – if necessary, we can deliver the restaurant’s furniture in less than two weeks!

“Tell us what you want, and we’ll find ways to make your wishes come true!”
