The photo took in the apartment of my client's customer (my client is the company that makes furniture of natural wood) just after this table was delivered and unpacked.

The apartment owner is a very interesting person who went through the war in Afghanistan in 80's (I guess that's the reason why we can see the portrait of Leonid Brezhnev), and now he's a traveler - that's why there are lots of authentic items from different countries of the World on his wall behind the table. Also, he's interested in history, music, and sailing: we can see the yacht mast of the redwood on the top of the wall, right above the cups row, and the group photo of soviet warriors in WWII, right above the Brezhnev's portrait, and the vinyl player with speakers on the sides of the TV.

I had a couple-of-hour-conversation with him while we were waiting for the table delivery.

So, why this name of the photo? Not only because of the table, although that's also obvious. To my mind, the apartment owner is a sample of the real soviet human who has successfully adapted to the new reality after the Soviet Union's collapse but has saved his character and kernel. Just like natural wood - soft and hard at the same time.
