One of the more surprising trends in Sweden this year has been the reappearance of the kurbits style and patterns. As I wrote in an earlier post about the Kurbits dinner service from Rörstrand, it is an old folk painting style stemming from the Darlecarlia region in Sweden. Now it has been reinvented and interpreted by many of the biggest Swedish designers, and is a big hit making the Swedish fashion and interiors scene more colourful and lively. Here are some great examples:
