Design and style from a Scandinavian perspective

Christmas Calendar 4/12: Story North

The prize in today's giveaway is something I have been looking at for years, but never got around to investing in. It's a true design classic. So I am very happy to be able to let one of my fantastic readers win this!
The company sponsoring today's giveaway is Story North, a brand new online store opened by Samantha Denisdóttir, the woman behind the stylish blog Lovenordic. If you have ever read her blog, you just know that this store is full of great products!

So what product am I talking about? The Kubus 4 candleholder, in black (worth € 135)! Danish Architect Mogens Lassen designed this in the 1960's as a rebellion against the ornate, elaborate home.

To get a chance to win this, just answer this question in the comments below:
If you had a Kubus, what other products from Story North would you match it with?

This giveaway is open for 24 hours and will close Monday 4/12 at 12.00 CET. The winner will be contacted by email and announced in this post.
Update! This giveaway is now closed!

Congratulations Louise, I have emailed you, so you and your son should get a nice package from Story North soon!

    Då skulle Kubusen stå på det dukade bordet tillsammans med ett helt servis av Wik & Walsöes Alveskog som jag fastnade för första gången jag såg det. OCH ett Pia Wallén pot mat (trots att det egentligen är ett grytunderlägg) under varje tallrik. Finheter!

    I would choose Qubus Shrine to match Kubus 4 with, in Qubus Shrine would be a big stack of Hyacinths to get some green in DIY. For the evening when the lights go on in Kubus 4 when it will shine nicely in the glass at Qubus Shrine.

    I think it would look perfect on our kitchen table next to the Pia Wallén birch tray, and with the Cross blanket thrown casually on the sofa. Clean, minimalistic and gorgeous!

    a great giveaway, indeed!

    i'd put the kubus candle holder on a small round table with two chairs. onto those chairs i would put "grey feather cushions" from the webstore. next to the candle holder on the table would be a stack of books, also from the webstore.

    First of all Kubus with "ś" instead of "s" is a name of my boyfriend :) And because he was a sailor, I would like to buy a Menu Lighthouse Oil lamps, becasue they really looks like lighthouses and it brings back good memories.

    I would combine the kubus with MORE candles especially the Kivis by iittala to create contrast and similarity at the same time: the kubus is modern and high and the Kivis are cosy and small but they both create a nice winterfeeling!

    2011-12-04 | 12:45:38

    I'd pu the Kubus on top of the Muuto Reflect Sideboard.

    Like you, the Kubus is one of my all time favourites, and on my Wish List for a long time.

    I would combine it with a black Dala Horse, standing side by side on my wooden dinner table.

    I'll match it with butterflies wall decorations, their ornate but stylized design give the right opposite effect to reinterpret a 60' object design, and the light of the candle will make the butterflies vibrant and suggestive.

  • Sari says:

    Kubus would match with most things from Story North, wouldn't it?

    In the dinner table, I would have the Pia Wallen pot mats, Dahlström's oven pan for roasted potatoes, the Sarpaneva pot for the stew - or in the living room, I would have it on the sofa table while curled up in a Gibba blanket.

    If you ask me, I would match Kubus with Pia Wallen's Cross blanket. They would be a perfect xmas present for a designer student <3

  • Chris says:

    I would have it sitting on a Reflect Sideboard next to a line of the wood BIRDs. Placed under the window so I can gaze at the flickering reflection whilst sitting on a butterfly stool wrapped in a deep grey Heavy Knitted Throw sipping steaming hot chocolate.

    2011-12-04 | 14:03:45
  • olivia b says:

    I would put the candleholder on a low minimalistic coffeetable with and old wooden surface. On that table would be the Wik and Walsoe Alveskog (the plates), filled with pineapples and other cosy forrest finds. On the couch I'd put some byNord braided cushions.

    I would combine this pretty candleholder with two birds (one tall light bird and one small dark bird) from Architectmade on my work desk to losen up the geometric lines.

    Hi, I would match it almost with everything, since (like you said) Kubus is very timeless! However, I love the classic Vitra chairs, so I would enjoy a combination of the Kubus and RAR Rocker by Vitra <3

    Would place the candle holder on a natural wood-stump coffee table in front of an ornate, recycled Victorian settee upholstered in off-white linen with a Branch Pillow and Pia Wallen Cross Blanket covering the seat. Perhaps adding a few round, silver ornaments on the table to add sparkle and reflect the candlelight! This vignette would combine the clean-lined, geometric and insanely eccentric.

    I would put the "Kubus candle holder" on my grey and white marble side table with chrome frame which stands next to my fireplace where I have a small lounge area. Then I would add the "byNord Braided Cushion " to make it even more cosy!

    this candleholder needs space...! it's a wonderfull attest of the beauty of geometry construction. I would give "him" a silent compagnon, form of a by myself handmade HIMMELI, perhaps black, perhaps pink, perhaps (depends of the candles' colour). then I would take place in a certain distance on an "Icelandic Sheepskin Cushion" which is organic and no rival to the geometric composition. I would very much enjoy the game of light and shadow, of lines and motion.

    cross my fingers for it...

    The Dala Horses - two classic designs that never grow old. Kubus with it strict design in pair with a Dala Horse with its playful form, that would be a nice combination.

    Love this candleholder, it's been on my wishlist for ages! I would place it in my livingroom on my low shelving unit, hope that my daughter won't find it to interesting and then I would add some of the 'butterflies wall decoration' above it on the wall among all the artwork and let the lights play in the stainless steel.

    Merry christmas to you - and thanks a gazillion for an inspirational blog.

    2011-12-04 | 16:13:14
  • Louise says:

    I like mixing candles of different types and sizes. In some of the pictures of the products, they have the same family candle holders with only one candle, it would be nice to mix it with two of the small candle holders (one candle). But they don't seem to have it in store. I think it would also look good with the small Qubus Shrine, as long as the shrine is shorter, for different heights.

    2011-12-04 | 16:17:27

    I will probably use Kubus all over my house on different tables to enjoy it in every room I walk into, so big is my love for it. But to bring some playfulness along I would buy two of the fun wooden birds by Kristian Vedel and place them always somewhere close by.

    Good for all occasions but since it's the now, I would match it with the Caroline Swift Porcelain Angel and the Festivo Candle Holders - I imagine a nice tension between the strong straightforwardness of Kubus and the more play-full side of the other pieces.

    So lovely your pics thanks a lot!

    Jag skulle matcha the Kubus med Qubus Shrine, för att att det är så vackert när ljus reflekteras i glas och det lyser upp mina favoritföremål. De båda har dessutom ett grafiska uttryck som skulle gå fint ihop.

    Actually, I've been saving up for one of these- to match with two very generic American candelabras I already have. I cannot find who designs or produces them, but they are sold on ebay and etsy as "brass, folding candelabras." Or candle holders. Often they will say "mid-century," although one source says they are from the 90s. I think juxtaposing them would be very cool. Or nice and hot with all those candles!

    This is unbeliveable! If there was a prize for the best giveaway 2011 it would be this! I have a picture of this candle holder behind my computer desktop, it really is a dream piece to have at home, especially during christmas and winter. I have a perfect place for it in the heart of my home, on the long kitchen island/counter on white base.

    I would place a book Scandilicious next to it. How nice it would be to light a third advent candle next Sunday and bake something really yumm!

    My nine-year-old daughter Sofia says it looks like a proud castle and she would combine it with the Dala Horses so they can guard the castle and keep it safe.

  • Kajsa says:

    I would put it next to a Eames Elephant, the contrast between the clean strict candle holder and the colorful and playful Elephant. They make a perfect pair!

  • Anna says:

    To perfect the glorious light from the Kubus I choose to combine it with "Heavy Knitted Throw" to wrap myself in when I enjoy my cup of tea on a cold December evening.

  • Janna says:

    If i had a kubus i would match it with the raven sculpture, to cast a haunting shadow that could scare off the mice that just moved in.

    2011-12-04 | 23:25:03
  • Louise says:

    I would match it with the DWR Eames Chair in white, with black chrome and walnut tree.

    I'd like to see the kubus on a brick fireplace hearth. In front of the fireplace & on the floor would be the Icelandic sheepskin cushion upon the gray heavy knitted throw. The Bible notebook is open for recording my deep thoughts.

    Jag skulle sätta in Kubus i sovrummet och matcha den med Photo Print Bed Linen, som jag tycket var jättefint och inte alls bara för barn!

  • Eddy says:

    The Kubus would be put at the center of the Reflect Sideboard with the Dala Horses close by.

    Next to that on the left would be a Wik and Walsoe Eflin Porcelain Bowl (full of x-mas candy), fullfilling the role of temptation right next to the Pia Wallen Bible notebook.

    On the right I would put a big Rosendhal Opus Storage Jar filled with acorns, and throw a whole bunch of matches in a Caroline Swift Bone China Tea Light Holder to complete the picture.

    Now I wish it would snow...

    Vem drömmer inte om en Kubus, av Mogens Lassen? Som klart är den snyggaste i ljusstaks-klassen. Svårt var det inte att hitta fina saker att matcha med, från fin-fina butike Story North. Hos oss skulle den pryda skänken Reflect, från en annan designer som är "släkt i släkt"!

    Favoriten kubus skulle ensam få stå på mitt "tripp-trapp-trull-bord" framför soffan. Bakom kubus, i soffan, tror jag att Greenlandic Boy Cushion hade passat fint. Dom kompletterar varandra på ett kaxigt sätt tycker jag. Kuddens motiv bidrar dessutom med en märklig känsla av allvar och blir kungen i soffan hemma hos oss.

    So sorry, now I'm twice in it.

    First it didn't work (I thought) as I saw no comment.

    Then tried once again...

    So dear Emma please erase one...

  • sara says:

    Jag tycker att en Kubus skulle passa bra på ett Reflect Sideboard,i krokarna av en Muuto Stacking Shelf och en senapsgul DSW Chair By Vitra! Man kan ju alltid drömma :)

    2011-12-05 | 00:29:27
  • Jenny says:

    I would definitely place the Kubus 4 candleholder on my white componibili coffee table and match it with black panton chairs by vitra on either side of the table. And that would be the perfect combination of black and white.

  • Sigrun K. Arnadottir says:

    The Kubus is one of my favorite designers item, it has been on my wish list for a long time. I would love to match it with a white DSW Chair by Vitra and for some warmth I would like the Rosendahl Wooden Monkey hanging on a shelf and the Icelandic Sheepskin Cushion in the chair. A lovely contrast of black, white, wood and fur. Happy holidays:)

  • Louise says:

    Last night my son asked me what I would like for Chritmas. I thought I would like a black cube metal candlestick which I had seen on design blogs. My problem was I did not know the name of the product. I thought I would try to research it by going to my favourite blog 'Emma's.'To my delight the very product I was looking for was featured today! What a coincidence!

    I would match the candlestick with the Shrine' . I think the juxtaposition of the black metal and the glass would work well together.

    2011-12-05 | 01:07:21
  • christina@pmv says:

    Oh, this is a long-time favorite. I would pair it with a Pia Wallen Cross Blanket and a Kay Bojesen monkey!

    The kubus candleholder would start to serve as replacement for a advent ring in December, since I don´t have one. Later I would love to match it with a muuto stacking shelf and a Rosendahl Monkey hanging on one of the shelfs.

  • Emily L says:

    Hello Emma,

    The Kubus candleholder is so simply beautiful and I would be very very happy to own one!

    I think I would match the Kubus candleholder in the Muuto Stacking Shelf combined with the Icelandic Sheepskin cushion on the Butterfly Stool by Vittra.

    Have a great week!

    If I got the Kubus, I'd wanna combine it with an Eames Hang It All. I love combining strict and playful. But if 'ifs' and 'buts' were candy and nuts, we'd all have a marry Christmas. So in real life I'd put it in my bedroom with my seablanket made by Vík Prjónsdóttir (that I bought last time I got a bonus) and my red Pia Wallén slippers I got for Christmas last year. A perfect way to get through the Chicago winter, providing both warmth and its reminiscence of home. And last, a perfect song to go with it http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3E88k-AyPUU (First Aid Kit singing 'Emmylou')

    Hi Emma,

    I love your blogg, I come in here at least one time a day. I really admire your work and what I like the most about it, is how open you are for all kind of styles.

    I´m at the same place as you, I´ve been dreaming for the Kubus for a long time. There are only few years since I had my own home and I love to decorate it with timeless design. But many of these beautiful things, like these we see in Story North, cost a lot. At least here in Iceland it does! But than we have to make a wish, cross our fingers and hope for the best :)

    If I would have a Kubus in my home, I would put it on my teak sidebar. Next to it is a big window and there I have a black raven as they sell in Story North. I love it. And if I could choose something to stay on the sidebar next to the Kubus I think I would choose the Dala horses, one black and one white as they show it. These three colors are beautiful together. Dark brown, black and white.

    Next to the Dala horses we see Caroline Siwft´s earthenware spoons, and if I was throwing a dinner party I would love to have two of them in a big glass bowl joined with colorful salad and there, on the table, I would of course also have the Kubus :)

    Thank you again for you great blog!

    Last night my son asked me what I would like for Christmas. The item that came to mind was a black cube candleholder which I have seen on design blogs. The problem is I don't know the name of the product. So this morning I thought I would do some research on my favourite blog:'emmas designblogg' Can you imagine my surprise when I clicked on your blog to see a post about the exact candleholder I was looking for!

    I would place the Kubus with the Shrine container as I think the juxtaposition of the black steel and the clear glass would look lovely.

    i would match it with the hang it all from r. and ch. eames by vitra. i visited vitra 2 weeks ago and it would make me happy coming home, putting my jacket over the "hang it all" and light the candles on KUBUS.

    I've had my eye on this candleholder for a few years now! It's at the top of my wishlist, just not in the budget.

    I would match it with BIRDS, a little wooden Danish bird, and a Pia Wallen Cross blanket. The Kubus bring light to a dark, winter day, the blanket keeps me warm, and the bird bring a smile!

    I don't necessarily believe you need to match Kubus with other items. It speaks for itself. But it would be nice to hang a couple of black Ravens at different heights on the wall behind/over the Kubus.

    The Rosendahl Wooden Monkey goes together with anything, so one of those could have a seat next to the Kubus. :)
