Abate

Amidst the summer days we are having in Oslo, there are some local news that should help take some of the heat off..literally! Abate is relatively a new brand on the scene , but the quality is what for me sets them apart. With a 400 thread count, made …

Frama New Catalogue

I received the new Frama catalogue a while ago, the photos are so beautiful I wanted to share some of my favorites on the blog. I love the moody colors and the beautiful light, I do not own an apartment right now but when I do I can see a Frama kitchen fitting quite nicely in it. I already own a few select pieces from Frama ( AJ Otto tableware, their signature soaps etc ), but I feel I can never have enough. Everytime I visit Kollektedby store in Oslo (so lucky it is in my neighborhood) I end up buying something more. Take a look at the new catalogue but also at their webstore if you are not able to visit their beautiful store/showroom in Copenhagen.

Menu Space AW17

The last few days have gone by much too quickly and if you follow my instagram stories and generally my instagram you know why. Since I wasnt able to post while spending a week in Copenhagen , I will take everything backwards and start from the last day! On friday after all my meetings and press events were finished I decided to visit again the Menu Space at Nordhavn, Menus new showroom and open cafe in the area. The last time I stopped by was for the openings night dinner during 3 days of design and I didn’t have time to take any photos, I more than made up this time around however. I was delighted to see some of the news coming out now and in the following months , if you are interested in sneak peeks there are plenty below!

The Offset sofa by Norm Architects as seen in the photo above is one of my favorites. The name comes from the design process when the architects experimented with its shape by offsetting proportions, playing with narrow armrests versus a thick generous seat while trying to research balance . The result is a welcoming sofa, contemporary yet very inviting.

New Norm Dinnerware will also be launching this Autumn in a new color, stormy grey. The dinnerware is finished in a special glaze that gives the porcelain its elegant watercolour-like texture. 
 
The Zet storing system as seen above is a new shelving system with a light , airy and minimalistic appearance. It consists of only two parts, the wooden u-shapped shelves and the metal frame. By combining these two one can create endless formations while it can always be disassembled and reassembled in a different shape. On top of Zet lies the new Stone Lamp. Norm architects intended for it to be used exactly as a candle so it is designed to create a soft cozy light. 

 Another one of my favorites that will launch later this year is the Monuments Magazine holder. There are many magazine holders in the market, and certainly we can also build stacks of them right on top of our floors, however the Monuments plinth like design with two identical marble blocks imbues the holder with a monumental architectural feel, hence its name! This one got immediately on top of my wishlist.



Although the corner for the Eave modular sofa was still under construction, I managed to take a sneak peek photo for you. The sofa takes its name by the “eaves” the lower edges of the roof that overhang a wall. I expect to see the Eave in many combinations in many homes and offices alike, its versatility and its shape, a perfect blend of style and comfort, make it a great choice for any space. Sneak peek on the plinth, the TR bulb, the first collaboration between Menu and Tim Rundle. The dimmable lamp can be placed on the table or the wall, while its opal glass diffuses the light and prevents glare. 

 The last sneak peek for today comes in relation with the TR lamp in a form of a combination of the Tribeca series by Søren Rose Studios and the TR as seen on the top right of the photo above. This photo even though it only shows part of the lamp is one of my favorite photos, I feel it captures the essence of scandinavian minimalism perfectly.

I hope you enjoyed the small tour in the Menu Space, some of the things I saw made it on the top of my wishlist so I am hoping I will be able to budget some of them for my own space at home soon!

Oslo Design Fair – August ’17

Oslo Design Fair is back again on the 30th of August until the 2nd of September, and this time around I will be in Oslo to enjoy it in its entirety since in a few days I am finally moving to Oslo permanently! 
This is the fourth installation of ODF and it is a pleasure to see it grow more and more with every passing year. This autumn the theme will be Past – Future and as always it will be explored through exhibitions, lectures and inspiration areas. One of the exhibitions I am looking forward to is “Everything is Connected” first showcased in Milan fair this spring. A critically acclaimed showing of objects and designs whose concept is deeply rooted in the past in an effort to connect to the future. Stylists Kirsten Visdal and Per Olav Sølvberg are behind the trends exhibition that will interpret the Past -future through interior. 
See you there!

Sneak peek news from Melo Studio

//Photography and Styling by Sara Medina Lind
I have been a fan of Sara’s work for a long time not just as a photographer and stylist ( her work can be found at Sara Medina Lind ) but also as the design force behind Melo Studio, a design brand that came to life to celebrate handcrafted minimalism. So far Melo Studio has been known for its exquisite handmade ash pieces in Dalarna,  unique in their craftsmanship and design. I was so excited to find out about the birth of a new line of ceramics and to share a sneak peek today on the blog, I love the soft lines but at the same time the powerful raw texture. I cannot wait to see more of this beautiful new line, until then, keep an eye on the blog for more updates or follow Melo Studio  on Instagram for further sneak peeks and news.

SHADE : Norm Architects new Collaboration with Sørensen Leather

I am always keeping a close eye on cool collaborations in the design world and Sørensen is one of my favorites to watch closely. I met with them in the Trends and Traditions meet up in Copenhagen a few days ago and I had the chance to check on the beautiful new leather palettes that were produced from their collaboration with Note Design Studio, the lookbook with the samples alone was something I would gladly keep on my desk as decoration. I am very excited about everything Sørensen is up to and for todays post two of my favorites to watch are combined in the form of a new and exciting collaboration. Norm Architects have launched Shade a velvety soft leather collection created to reflect the quiet, innate beauty of muted, earthy tones. The leather selection is quite unique with high-quality protected Aniline leather, and as shown in the photo perfectly fits an Afteroom chair. I was already considering getting Afteroom chairs for my new kitchen and now with the addition of Shade leather, it will be hard to think of any other contender!

A new type of imprint : New edition launch at Frama Showroom

If you have been following my stories on Instagram then you have already seen some sneak peeks from the launch of the new edition of A new Type of Imprint , a magazine and platform on creative culture and design, that was held in the Frama Showroom in Copenhagen. In celebration of their 10th issue and their very first jubilee, the annual magazine comes in a special edition box that includes the People Passions Places magazine and an illustration by Laila Myrseth Tryggeseth. Number 10 of A new type of Imprint continues its travels in the Nordics, visits Denmark in a journey to uncover cool and talented Danes all the while challenging our ideas about Danish design. Dont miss its extensive reportage on new and exciting Norwegian creatives as well coming in the form of interviews, essays, photo series and illustrations, this issue is here to impress! 

I was so glad I stopped by and got to meet editor-in-chief Veronica Mike Solheim, and even happier I had my camera on hand and managed to shoot a few photos of Frama and the launch of the magazine. Definitely a must visit if you happen to be in Copenhagen. Don’t be fooled by the photos, the space was packed! Hope you enjoy this small tour, I tried to capture the mood of Frama along with some of their products, while enjoying the party!

Jaime Hayon for Republic of Fritz Hansen

While I could not attend Salone del Mobile in Milan this year ( sadly missing all the cool parties as well), I have been keeping a close eye on the news. An early favorite is the new Lune modular sofa by Jaime Hayon for the Republic of Fritz Hansen. Jaime Hayon’s take on an aesthetic and welcoming modular sofa that doesn’t look like a modular sofa at all. Whether a 2 seater, a 3 seater or a 10 seater, the result is a timeless and sculptural design that meets functionality under the carefully curated Jamie Hayon’s artistic style. I have been thinking what couch I could get for my apartment when I move to Oslo and I have to say Lune just went on the top of my list. 


Another favorite of mine from the Fritz Hansen collection the Fri Lounge chair by Jamie Hayon just got released in new colors as well, Dark grey, Beige and Iris Blue, the perfect complement piece for the new Lune Sofa. I particularly like the moody blue color with the matching legs, its curvy approach of design matches so well with my design philosophy as of late.

New Tone Cabinets by Norm Architects

Norm Architects need no introduction on this blog, the architectural team based in Copenhagen are behind many big projects few among them exceptional designs for Menu as well as well as most notable renovations for The Village, &Tradtion headquarters in Copenhagen or The Kinfolk Gallery. Today I am sharing one for their newest projects, one I was happy to see up and close at Stockholms design fair a month ago the sound absorbing cabinets for Zilenzio .

“Designed to absorb certain frequencies of sound where it is needed the most, our new collection of acoustic furniture for Zilenzio was designed to improve sound in the spaces that matters to you the most. Entitled Tone Cabinets, these sound dampening design pieces were made to help built a balanced acoustic environment in the workplace or at home, ultimately making it easier to focus and concentrate.” By Norm Architects.

As I will be moving to Oslo soon this is a great idea for a city apartment, the design is flawless and I need cabinets that I won’t want to hide, plus they will work on transforming the new space into an acoustic haven.

Dream Collaboration for Rum Hemma

I have been waiting for the full spread of these photos since Sara Medina Lind and Pella Hedeby teased some previews on their instagram accounts and surely enough , the dreamy collaboration is a stunning collection of soft minimalism. The resulting photos can be seen at this months Rum Hemma. Pella and Sara Medina used some of my personal favorites for this shoot when it comes to interior , but most of all I cannot wait for the COS SS 17 line to hit the stores! I have seen some of the items already in a closed press preview (some of them are pictured above) and I can only say, if you like soft lines, cotton, linen and hemp, you will love what is to come.

Perpective Studio in Stockholm

While in Stockholm for the Furniture and Light fair, I managed to find some time on the very last afternoon to visit Perpective, a new space that works as a Lifestyle store & design studio. I found many favorite designs in the store and I left with some things that have been in my wishlist for a while along with music recommendations from the very engaging owner Robin (check Available from Erik Rapp). The studio is located at Sankt Eriksplan 15 in Stockholm while their online store is due to open very soon. If I was in the city however I would just stop by, if only to enjoy the beautiful space and catch the latest news from Robin. Below you can find some of the photos I shot during my last visit, my only regret not having enough time to visit during the day for moodier photos in natural light!

SFF Stockholm 2017 : Part 2

As promised today I am sharing Part 2 from my time at Stockholm’s Furniture and Light fair with some of the things that caught my eye (Check part 1 here).
At Louis Poulsen their vision is to create designs that forms light. To complement the environment with just the right light. Light which gives a pleasant and comfortable atmosphere. The Panthella MINI (as seen above) is a smaller version of Verner Panton’s classic lamp from 1971, and I think it embodies that vision perfectly. As captured above, in a combination of black and white acrylic, both lamps emanate a soft light that hugs their environment in the softest way. 
 A few weeks ago I wrote about the news from &Tradition , I was looking forward to seeing some of the new designs and additions and I was not disappointed. Some of my favorites include the brand new In Between stools and the Working Title table lamp as seen above while I also spotted new sizes (below) for the very successful Fly series by Space Copenhagen : A new one seater and a taller sofa table. 
One of the places I absolutely want to visit next time I am in Copenhagen (hopefully before 3 days of design in June) is the Frama headquarter and Studio Store, located in central Copenhagen in the historic and protected neighborhood of Nyboder. I stopped by their stand and was treated to the beautiful Frama world of hues and unique craftsmanship. Frama won this years award for Kitchen of the year at Elle Decoration Swedish awards, it is always so great to see more ideas come from the team and be able to experience their universe first hand.  

I spend a long time at Muuto stand where I experienced first hand some of my favorites from the new designs :  The Outline chair by Anderssen & Voll , the new Ripple throw by Margrethe Odgaard and the beautiful new Workshop chair by Cecilie Manz (all news can be found here ). A seen above in an office styling setting, the Ambit lamps in new dusty blue color, the beautiful Fiber side chairs, and the Folded shelves on the wall in the background in olive color. Below something that has been on my wishlist, the Compile shelf system in grey (combination 2).
At Skagerak the new Hven series designed by Swedish Anton Björsing were the center of attention and rightfully so. The armchairs and tables are designed to make you invite your family and friends over a little more often. Build with high comfort, a light and simple expression and from FSC-certified wood, Hven is a long-term minded series with regard to aesthetics, functionality and environment. 

Last but not least at the press brunch at Gubi, we were treated with some of this seasons exciting news. most notable the new upholsteries for the Beetle Dining chairs (as seen above) and the new Pedrera  Ana Pendant Lamp Black,created as a tribute by Ruiz Millet to the designer of the original Pedrera lamps (as seen below).

SFF Stockholm 2017 : Part 1

Today I will be sharing some of the news from Stockholm’s Furniture and Light fair I attended a few days ago. I had my camera out the whole time trying to get opportunities for photos in the crowded booths and while I didn’t think I would be lucky, when editing I realized I had more photos that I though so I will be splitting this post in two parts. I hope you enjoy my tour around my favorite stands in SFF17 !

I have already featured some of Menu’s news on the blog (check here for the press photos), so I was very much looking forward to seeing some of the much anticipated designs up and close, and I was not disappointed. The Tailor sofa (above) that is meant to be seen by all sides as per designers Rui Alves words was a delight see, while in the same photo we can catch a glimpse of the new Afteroom bar stool by talented young Taiwanese duo Hung-Ming Chen and Chen-Yen Wei and hanging above them the Cast Pendant which embodies Menu’s philosophy of soft minimalism. A detail on the far left of the same photo above reveals a new color/material  for the Pepe Marble Mirror designed by Studio Pepe and a closer look at the delicate Afteroom bar stool. On the last photo of the Menu highlights the much photographed front of the booth featured the September sofa designed by Theresa Arns. 

I was delighted to see a fresh design for the booth of Ferm Living as well (photo above taken in the Fair). Usually very visually crowded with news, this years design of the room allowed for more negative space which I felt brought an elegance that suited Ferm Living style. Among the news (photo below) we can see the Punctual shelf in new Rose color, while on the shelf the Buckle Jars in all 3 color variations, the new Medley Knit Cushions, Plant Box in Ochre and a glimpse of the Herman Chairs in the front of the photo (all news can be found at News – Living SS17).

I could not help but stop at String and take some photos. This year the stand ,dressed in white, presents a contrast from their colorful press photos (as featured a few weeks ago on the blog), which I feel accentuated even more the lines and minimalism of the classic design. New shelves and new additions where incorporated neatly into the elegant space with the new wardrobe additions displayed beautifully on one of the walls (photo below). 

Fritz Hansen was always so crowded, a second visit was required in order to capture some of the highlights. As seen above the office of Fritz was re imagined and displayed as a cozy space with mood boards providing plenty of inspiration and an insight of Fritz Hansens world of design. Below Arne Jacobsens series 7 chairs gets a new colorful look. Fritz Hansen’s Choice 2017 is a new interpretation of Arne Jacobsen’s iconic Series 7 that imbues the functional, minimalist Danish design form with the soft, feminine colours of Japanese cherry blossoms.The shell of this special 2017 edition is available in two colours – a deep-red merlot and a serene, pastel nude – developed and perfected over time in the Fritz Hansen design studio to match the new rose gold coating on the four-legged base.


Last but not least for todays blogpost a detail at the Vitra stand that caught my eye. I love seeing moodboards and a behind the scenes look and this photo captured that feeling perfectly.

Looking forward to reveal part two tomorrow with more news and highlights!

Lotta Agatons Trends stand at Stockholm Furniture and Light Fair

Contrasts is the underlying theme for and name of the Trend Exhibition 2017/18, which has been created by stylist Lotta Agaton, one of the main attractions in Stockholm Furniture and Light Fair this year. The exhibition offers contrasts in materials and furniture as well as surprising combinations. The spaces are interconnected so visitors can see from one to another and vice versa.

The exhibition space is my reflection of our times. I wanted to create a space with no set rules and to inspire people to play more with what they already have and use new materials, colours and textures. I wanted to create a space where contrasting materials and colours met in unexpected ways and show that a room and its furnitures could behave in a new way just by changing the wall colour. I have chosen furnitures and products that all have a clean lines and timeless design. When lined up together all the furnitures would fit together but by placing them in rooms with different wall colors and change the fabric, every room and piece of furniture got a totally different mood. : Lotta Agaton

From an all pink office , to a green bathroom, the perfect beige kitchen, the blue dining room and the red terra cotta bedroom, Lotta Agaton defines a trend that is here to stay for a while, the one that comfort and safety combine perfectly with style and high end furnishings. Darker, warmer and more embracing, one by one the rooms in the makeshift house invite us to stay for a while.

My photos depict a close up look due to only bringing with me only one 85mm prime lens for my camera. For wider perspective beautiful imagery, visit my talented colleagues Elisabeth Heier blog post , with whom I traveled with to the fair.

IKEA Stockholm SS17

Today I am sharing the beautiful new Stockholm line from IKEA Spring Summer 2017 news from the press launch I attended 2 days ago. I shared some insights on my instagram stories where I also did live broadcasts of the designers that were present and being interviewed, while today I am happy to share some of the official photos I received in the press package. There were two new lines presented, however, my favorite pieces all came from the Stockholm line. A new couch in 3 colors, a table and floor chrome lamp and a wooden tray by Ola Wihlborg,  a rattan/ash sofaboard and cabinet in the same material by Nike Karlsson, plus new beautiful fabrics from Hanna Dalrot. The collection will be available from 7th of April in all IKEA stores. 

Inspired by nature, the new Stockholm line wishes to become a new favorite and help create a cozy and harmonious home that brings well-being to people, saysViveca Olsson Creative leader.

Designer Nike Karlsson says : We make many chairs before we come to the final version. You make a prototype , change it here and there, move things a little. Thats how you move forward in the design process.

I wanted to make a really big sofa, that could carry the whole family at the same time, notes designer Ola Wihlborg.

Woods Agentur Showroom – SS17 Styling

Today, my first day in Oslo, first thing on my schedule was to visit my beloved Woods Agentur showroom ( the talented ladies also behind one of my favorite online stores Mitthjem ) where I got to see news first hand from the collections of Serax, Frederik Bagger, Vibeke Scott – Langkilde & søn -Valerie Objects and Ole Gjerløv Knutsen / Skovshoved Møbelfabrik. From new tableware to lamps, to new fabrics and new materials (check below the bamboo bowls stacked neatly on the windowsill), there was something for everyone in todays fresh styling. I tried to capture some of the mood with a few photos, I hope you enjoy ! You can see the Summer styling in August here if you want to see the difference (it is really the same showroom) , it is really amazing what these ladies can do when it comes to styling!

&tradition SS17

New colors, new materials and new shapes for some of the beloved classics are part of the Spring Summer 17 news for one of my favorite brands, And Tradition. 
I am most excited for the Catch Lounge Chair designed by Jaime Hayon ,but also for the new seat cover colors and tube legs on the classic Catch Chair. I have had my eye on the Catch chair for my office, I am glad I have even more choices now with the new additions!

Speaking of updated materials and colors, the Copenhagen Pendant by Space Copenhagen now also comes in matt opal glass and brass detailing. I have always found a quiet elegance in the original version and I find the updated design just as beautiful.

I just recently bought a full set of In between chairs for my dining room in ash, so I am excited to see the launch of the In between  Bar Stool. I would love to see a steel or brass rod as support for the feet however instead of wood. I think it would elevate the design even more plus give the bar stool more longevity as the wood tends to chip in that area with time.

Spring Summer 2017 Menu News

Today I am sharing some of my favorite news from Menu SS17. Some of the designs are instantly elevated in the category of classics, with their timeless design and distinct materials. 
The versatile, multiple-use Copenhagen Tray Table ( as seen above) combines the functionality of a traditional tray with the elegance of a side table. Designed by Norm Architects for use in the home, office, even the garden, the table is portable and slender enough to slot stylishly into any corner of the room.

The Afteroom Counter, Cafe and Bar Table (as seen below) is yet a supplement to the beloved Afteroom Chair, constituting the same concept – a tribute to Bauhaus and functionalism – reducing the amount of material to a minimum and enhancing the aesthetic appearance to a maximum.

There are two sofas that caught my attention from the SS17 lineup, the Godot sofa ( above) that is displayed along with the new Plinth Podium (coming in 3 sizes, can be used as a table or a pedetral) and the elegant Tailor sofa (below). 

Designer Rui Alves says : “I wanted to show all of it, the structure, the beautiful oak wood. Nothing should be hidden, as is normally done in sofa design. The sofa is meant to be seen from all sides.”

It is especially beautiful from behind. The sofa has a light and airy appearance, the structured upholstered part supported by the wooden frame for a comfortable and practical sofa for everyday use.

Another favorite of mine that jumped on the top of my wishlist is the Meet bench (above and below). Simple and beautiful, I can see it in many places around my own home, from the bedroom to the entryway.

The Echasse Vase combines the classic elegance of a traditional glass vase with a playful, light expression. The word échasse is French for stilts – and this round-bottomed vase is anchored to the table by four slender legs that resemble stilts. The vase takes inspiration from test tubes in laboratories, and like the original the Echasse has a classic drop-like shape, constructed from coloured glass that gives the vase a unique expression. Echasse is available in a large version, which stands on the floor.
Below last but not least, a new small lamp that caught my eye, the Cast Pendant. An honest light, Cast Pendant embodies Menu’s philosophy of soft minimalism.

String News

For the next few days I will be sharing some of the news that land on my inbox from my favorite brands. I am starting today with some spectacular press photos of String Furniture, by stylist Lotta Agaton , photographer Marcus Lawett and art director Magnus Ingerstedt. The imagery conveys perfectly what String is all about and how it can fit seemingly as much in an industrial space as in any home or apartment. 

 I particularly like the new perforated metal solutions for the kitchen or storage areas. Stainless steel will never be out of fashion in my opinion, especially not when combined with other raw materials.

 Last but not least,I couldn’t help but notice the new additions for home use, such as perforated plates for shoes, solutions for a walk in closet or cloth hunger in the entry, while some classic solutions in white and oak show why String pieces have become timeless and a great addition to any space.

Jotun Lady Press Breakfast : Fall Colors

//Colors | LADY Våtrom 7163 Minty Breeze
A few days ago I attended the Jotun Lady press breakfast in Oslo, where we were presented with the new Jotun Lady colors for fall and talked about new trends. I immediately singled out some colors and I will be definitely using them come winter for my own home. On the photo above, the Minty Breeze green color , from their Urban Living color line, is perfect for the bathroom but I can also see it easily in the bedroom or in the kitchen.

//Colors | LADY Pure Color 1352 Form – Hylle i LADY Supreme Finish halvblank 9918 Klassisk Hvit
There is a new white in town and as its name suggests it is already a classic. Klassisk Hvit (classic white from their Nordic Living color line),  is the perfect shade of white , especially as combined in the photo above with the most beautiful nude warm grey color in my opinion called Form.

//Colors | LADY Minerals 10679 Washed Linen
Apart from greys blues and whites, Jotun Lady also launched a series of softer earthy colors. Washed linen (from their Continental Living color line) as seen in the photo above is my favorite, while there is a darker hue called Cashmere that I predict will also be very popular. I noticed Washed linen and the old Form matching very beautifully together, definitely a combination I will be attempting, so stay tuned!

Press Breakfast at Woods Agentur


Yesterday I spend my day in Oslo attending some press events in the city. Woods Agentur  showroom was my first stop for press breakfast, where I had the pleasure to meet everyone behind Woods but also Frederik Bagger the young and talented designer behind the crispy glasses and the new series crispy porcelain. Among my favorites in the beautifully styled Woods showroom where the new Serax tableware series but also all time loved Hale Merchantile and Co blankets and linens. New and noted Vibeke Scott pillows and bedroom robes also caught my eye. You cannot miss the beauty of the velvet texture and colors along with the floral accents all wonderfully arranged on the couch. I couldn’t have started my day any better.

IKEA AW16




Some beautiful photos from IKEA AW16 news and soon in the stores as well. I love the way companies have turned from a faux modern look towards authentic scandinavian style, not only with their styling,the photography and their presentation but also the range of the new products. From the introduction of new textiles to new and exciting collaborations, IKEA is promising an amazing new season and from the first photos they have me already wanting for more.

HM AW16 News

Some of my favorite photos from H&M  for the season. I am also completely in love with the style of that bedroom, it is quite close to how I want my bedroom to look for the winter so of course it caught my eye. But I wouldn’t mind the living room as well, even if it is more rustic than what you usually see from me. The focus in on their linen line that I am happy to see it is expanding to more colors but also to a range for couch covers etc. I would love to see some simple linen rugs and curtains as well however, maybe a thought for the future!

In September, Swoon launches new bathroom furniture.Two new series from Swoon offers almost unlimited freedom of choice. Bathroom furniture and stand in any colour, design by Fredrik Wallner, with washbasins in matching colors from Italian Globo, design by Claesson Koivisto Rune.
It is no secret that lately I am obsessed with grey, and the darker the better. This preview of the new Swoon line is really hitting a sweet spot, I am looking forward to seeing more of the products. Hopefully they will be presenting in one of the upcoming fairs that I am attending August and September. It is always a treat to see the news presented this way.More information about the AW16 line can be found here.

TineK Home AW16



TineK Home Autumn Winter 2016 catalog launched just a few days ago with many new items that I am looking forward to. It is no secret I love their ceramic pots and I can see now there are new designs as well as sizes and colors to choose from. Noteworthy are the new hues of pale green for some of the couches in velvet and their poofs, while also there are new bamboo daybeds. If you need inspiration for your fall home just browse the online catalog here, the lifestyle photos are truly breathtaking. I love the vintage look and the colors used to complement the new designs.

Introducing : Zakkia, Handmade Homewares.




For a while now I have had my eye on a new Australian brand, Zakkia Handmade Homewares. Zakkia is a Sydney based  label where Swedish heritage meets natural handmade design. Each product is hand produced in collaboration with small artisan studios and their contemporary range of carefully curated collection is thoughtful and innovative,yet inherently simple. The main focus is on the details which allows the minimalist character of the products to take shape. With materials such as brass,concrete,glass,stoneware,leather and ceramics, the collection takes a life of its own in the shape of cups,vases,trays and various containers among other designs. I can see so many of their collection in my own home, the shapes,the colors and the hues are definitely a perfect fit for my style.

Tom Dixon and Hay Collaboration with IKEA

We have all thought about it, I know I have, and my wishes just came true. IKEA announced a new Tom Dixon and Hay collaboration, originally at 50 pieces that stretched to 75 pieces. I cannot wait to see all the collection coming together, but for now I wanted to share my favorite pieces that have come out so far that I will be definitely purchasing as soon as they hit the stores. Stoneware candle holders and a redesign for the iconic blue bag. I hope the bag comes in even more colors.

Muuto and Vifa SS16 Design News

 //Photos via Muuto | Press Kit
A little late due to my holiday break but I couldn’t not share some news that arrived in my mailbox while away. First up Muuto‘s SS16 news with an great addition to their carefully curated collection, the “Framed” mirror designed by Anderssen&Voll. It can be used on its own or even in combination with the rest of the colors and sizes of the same line, either way it will create an impressive result. I was also happy to see my favorite Stacked System also got an extra accessory. A hinged door can be added to each of the boxes, thus either creating storage space or giving an extra layer to add to the wonderful design of your system, a very welcomed addition indeed!
//Photos via Vifa | Press Kit
I also got a newsletter from Vifa about their new Bluetooth portable speaker Oslo. Continuing the tradition of naming this line after Nordic capitals I fell in love with Oslo at first sight. Simple yet powerful design, comes in many colors guaranteed to fit your lifestyle. The market is so saturated with portable speakers in our days, but Oslo promises and delivers full sound in full design in a way that it will be hard to resist even if you already own a Bluetooth speaker.

Rotonda Della Besana : Milan Design Week 2016



This week I was shooting for an assignment in the Rotonda Della Besana in Milan during Design week 2016. While my brief was very specific and didn’t leave me with a lot of time to otherwise shoot for the blog, I couldn’t resist snapping along the way a few photos to show you my whereabouts.
As soon as I arrived in location I realized how much time and effort has gone into transforming the old 17th century Rotonda into a restaurant/showroom with old and new Tom Dixon products, alongside the sponsors for the show. 
The Restaurant is a series of four sculptural kitchens and four radical dining halls designed by Tom Dixon to fit the 17th century Rotonda della Besana church in Milan. Arabeschi di Latte prepared the food for the 4 different kitchens that guests could enjoy while observing cutting-edge cooking techniques and the food preservation methods while they ate.
The dining areas spread between the four wings of the Rotonda so guests are encouraged to rotate through them in order to have a 4 course full meal. Every wing was designed with an element in mind, Air, Fire,Ice and Earth and the food was directly inspired by those principles.The Restaurant is a space where all of this is broken up and deconstructed Tom Dixon says, and by personal experience I can attest to the simplicity and beauty of the thought process that led to the design. On the first night a VIP dinner of 120 guests while the Rotonda was closed allowed me to enjoy myself this unique dining experience and spectacular food presentation.
While working I spent my breaks moving from one wing to another during the day, having my lunch in the kitchen of my choice. All around visitors would either make short stops to eat or drink as well, or even sit and enjoy the space while working, shop from the Tom Dixon shop and finally take a tour around the Rotonda. 
My only regret is that I didn’t have time to visit this years Milan Design Show, however I am hoping to see everyone I missed during September in Paris!

IKEA Livet Hemma Styling Sessions




Beautiful styling and photography from IKEA Livet Hemma. I enjoy these series quite a lot,it not just the new designs that I love, but also the great styling and photography. The use of raw materials and surfaces and the soft grey and earthy tones specifically are so appealing to me. The photos above are great examples of how to style anything in your house and not just Ikea products. And as a last note, did you know you could combine the Stuva System in such a way that it forms the perfect floor to ceiling storage module? Several parts suitable for high and low storage and practical drawer modules have been combined together to create the massive storage module. A nice detail is that the handles are turned in different directions for creative expression. Oh swoon!

String Stainless Steel Edition

I couldn’t help but swoon a little when I got in my mail the Stainless Steel edition photos of the String pocket. While I have to admit I wasn’t the biggest fan of the copper edition, this one I think is going to be an instant hit. Beautiful industrial look and unlike other versions, this one can also be used outdoors. If you were missing shelves for any outdoor space this will be your ticket.

Broste Copenhagen Spring/Summer News 2016



Broste Copenhagen is fast becoming one of my favorite brands. On my list are some of their tableware and some of their linens from their newly revealed 2016 Spring Summer collection.

As for their linens, since spring is indeed on the air they will fit perectly especially in my newly pink colored bedroom (as seen here ).
