A couple of weeks ago we traveled to the famous Scandinavian Furniture Fair in Stockholm to see what’s new in Nordic Design. As always, there was no shortage of beautiful Scandinavian furniture.

Only by walking around and taking pictures in this huge exhibition, we felt that we had collected a years’ supply of Nordic inspiration. In many case, the exhibitors really made an effort not only to display their furniture, but also to create complete ambiences by choosing the accessories, colors and lighting all in harmony.

We especially liked the stands of MUUTO and Materia, they both created a lovely atmosphere. We also loved the products of &Tradition and WOUD, both are young and talented new brands on the Scandinavian market.

As for the design trends, we’ve seen a number of references to 60’s and 70’s furniture. In fabrics, the resurgence of the bouclé is quite evident, and the use of rounded geometric shapes and vivid red and orange colors reminded us of that era. I’m really curious how this trend will evolve (or die) in the next couple of years.

In today’s special post, I present a house that I designed a couple of years ago for my parents. The building won the Special Prize of the 2018 House of the Year Awards Hungary. 

The small family residence is located in the hilly woodlands of Western Hungary. The gable roofed house features a simple, rectangular floor plan. The kitchen, living and main bedroom are on the first floor, while the smaller guest rooms and a common work / play area are located on the second floor under the roof.

The harsh weather takes a toll on the buildings at this otherwise scenic location, so the building needed strong materials that can withstand the elements. The walls are built of thick, insulating clay blocks, the roofing is made of zinc sheet, and the deck floor and wall are covered with larch wood planks.

CASA with Five Patios

Despite the very narrow plot, the house is surrounded by small terraces from three sides and also has a roof terrace, thus every room of the house have connection to a deck or garden. Continue Reading ➝

Casa Cinco Patios is a refurbishment project in Buenos Aires by Argentine architect Ana Rascovsky. During reconstruction, only the main structure of the old house had been kept, and a new Scandinavian style home was built at the site. Despite the very narrow plot, the house is surrounded by small terraces from three sides and also has a roof terrace, thus every room of the house have connection to a deck or garden. Wood floors and wall cladding, and Scandinavian furniture add to the Nordic feel of this home.
