The Art Of The New

Imagine a wardrobe full of all of the treasures that you never bought.  That Acne boot from 2013 that sold in a week and you wished that you’d been quicker, and not planned on waiting for it to go on sale.  Or that Celine bag from SS 2018, one of Pheobe’s last collections, at the

Louis Poulsen’s PH5 lamp

The weekend is almost over but I wanted to leave you with an image of the classic Louis Poulsen PH5 lamp. A little history about the creation of PH5:

Poul Henningsen developed the PH 5 in 1958 for Louis Poulsen as a response to the constant changes to light bulbs at the time.

“I have designed a PH fixture which can be used with any kind of light source, Christmas lights and 100 W metal-filament bulbs.”

The name PH 5 came from the size of the 50cm wide main shade and over time has seen many updates to accommodate changing light sources. In the early 90’s it was modified to accommodate an energy saving light bulb. The metal plate was also changed to a frosted glass plate to be more energy efficient. Just a few years ago a new set of 5 high gloss colors were introduced to the public.

STODEOH, vintage accessories from Copenhagen



Yesterday I stumbled across this Etsy shop with some great vintage treasures including Fog & Mørup lighting, Platner dining chair and a completely glass lamp with a slight mushroom shape. It’s nice when you find a vintage shop like this with such a careful selection of pieces!

Birkin’s Back

I’m ready to man-repel with my new summer bag, a Birkin basket, inspired by the one and only Jane Birkin, a 70s icon who still inspires me and so many others today.

the poetic home of Claes Juhlin

There is a feeling about this Stockholm home that reads like poetry to me. The thoughtful and artistic placement or purposeful spaciousness of certain rooms, the restraint, the soul. Or maybe it’s the soft putty colors and shadows that make up the home…

childhood dreams

As a child I love very feminine things. Give me ruffles, tiny details, glitter or pink and I was happy. Funny enough the older I’ve grown the more masculine my tastes have become, yet my childhood love of intricate details and soft color, ruffles and f…

Bruno Mathsson’s Karin chair

Is it possible to have too many chairs? Well it is but they’re certainly one piece of furniture I could easily collect. Bruno Mathsson’s Karin chair from the 1960’s is one of those I’d like to “collect” but use also. The padded cushion appeals to my co…

wanted/ MR chair

Originally designed by Mart Stam but introduced Ludwig Mies van der Rohe in 1927, the tubular steel and cane seat still somehow feel incredibly relevant. Actually I would love an MR chair myself, one of the leather variations ideally which is now produ…

Some things I’m dreaming of for my two kids. Buclo play modules, stars anorak for my son, Bonton bonnet for Elin, Arne Jacobsen child’s chair, striped snake toy, BC swan rug, a grey duvet, and a perfect little hamoc.
