Fabrics Karl and Coco, with obvious inspiriation from the big fashion houses, designed by Pia Wallén for Frösö Handtryck.
Candlesticks Skogen och Träden, in wood and ceramics, designed by Gustav Kristensson for Vardagsbruk.
I never really understood the hype on Danish House Doctor, until now. When I saw their stall yesterday I felt this sudden rush of inspiration go through my body. They have always excelled in their styling in all the fairs I have visited, but this was better than ever. I actually found myself wanting a big bunch of their products, mostly furniture. That has never happened before, even though I have always appreciated their talent in designing fair stalls. I don't know if it's me or them who has changed, I just know that we clicked right there and then.
Now I wouldn't pair the furniture with this much colourful things, but keep it simple, light and a bit rough as I always do. Can you see these pieces in a less romantic bohemian setting?
These bears from Superstudio were really nice!
And last, a few press photos from the "trend exhibitions" around the fair. In my opinion there was way too much flowers and bright colors everywhere, and the craft trend seems to have gone just a little too far... Also, I'm getting pretty sick of seeing huge letter everywhere.
