Glazed stoneware is paired with solid wood handles in this beautiful Nordic tableware collection. Continue Reading ➝

The ‘EMMA’ tableware collection by Danish manufacturer Stelton include not only cups, jugs and plates, but also an electric tea kettle and a toaster to make your Nordic kitchen collection complete. The series was created by a Danish designer duo, namely Sebastian Holmbäck and Ulrik Nordentoft.

I love how the beautiful glazed stoneware is paired with birch wood handles and tops on these items. The tame colors and soft shapes, together with the solid wood accessories create a truly unique and Scandinavian feel to this collection. Prices for the items in the EMMA collection are between $30 and $150.

Sculpture or Furniture?

This exceptional Scandinavian piece was created, surprisingly, by a Spanish artist. Continue Reading ➝

This fascinating armchair is called ‘Ro’, and it resembles a sculpture with its undulating shapes clad in beautiful, elegant fabrics. It’s a true, high-end Scandinavian piece.

Surprisingly, the creator is a Spanish artist and designer called Jaime Hayon.

The chair is manufactured by the historic Danish company Fritz Hansen. (This is the company that also produces Arne Jacobsen’s iconic furniture pieces.) This suggests a hefty price tag for this armchair as well, and it is, starting at around $3000.

These happy small houses were created by Danish textile & ceramic designers Mette Bache and Barbara Bendix Becker. The series is called Urbania, and is made of white glazed ceramic.

The various buildings cast various rays and shades in the room, creating a cosy atmosphere for the evening. (Also work perfectly well as bookends on your shelf during the day.) The lanterns are produced by Kähler Design and are available from $30 per piece.

Cool New Lamps from Copenhagen

Take a look at these designer lamps created by the young Danish lighting brand VITA copenhagen. Continue Reading ➝

Danish VITA is a young enterprise which started in 2008 in Copenhagen. Thanks to their fresh, creative approach and very affordable prices, the brand has been growing quickly ever since.

One of my favourites from their collection is the ‘Chimes’ which is a very simple pendant made of solid oak wood. Good choice for a dining or kitchen area.

‘Shade’ is a simple felt hat, that can placed on any larger LED bulb to create a sweet looking lamp and to adjust the light direction to your needs.

The fluffy ‘Eos’ shade is made of goose feathers. Wouldn’t say it’s a very practical item, but looks spectacular for sure. Prices for a medium size feather lamp is just $140.

Also worth mentioning that VITA ships all its products flat packed in small boxes to lower the transportation costs and their environmental footprint. You can find many other cool designs on their site.

A Fabulous ‘New’ Wegner Chair for 2018

This cool and stylish chair and sofa were created by world famous Danish designer Hans J. Wegner in 1952, and is now back in production. Continue Reading ➝

This cool and stylish chair and sofa were created by world famous Danish designer Hans J. Wegner in 1952. However, the production of the furniture stopped sometime in the 70’s. Now, the official manufacturer of many of Wegner’s designs, Carl Hansen & Søn dusted off the old chair, and started manufacturing these beautiful items once again.

The slim armchair features elegant, carved wood handles, rounded wood legs and a beautifully upholstered curved body – a true Scandinavian design in its every detail.

The old-new product was presented at the Milan Furniture Fair this April, and is available from September, 2018. Considering that Wegner designed over 500 furniture during his career, I wouldn’t be surprised, if we saw a few other of his products reappearing in the next few years.
