Design and style from a Scandinavian perspective

Hem 2008 report

So, finally, here is my post about the Hem 2008 fair that I went to last week. As usual the trend exhibitions made by different designers and decorators were far more interesting than the actual fair booths. This years theme was "Grönt är skönt" (≈Green is Good), and it was very visible in the exhibitions but not at all in the booths of the shops and furniture companies. That is why I choose to only show pictures from the exhibitions. They were all about reuse, organic products, and thinking green.
