Design and style from a Scandinavian perspective

Oblique Hanger by Annaleena

I just love the new Oblique hanger from Annaleena! The styling of these pictures is also so great, super simple but impactful. Another new item in her shop is the rectangular hanger in white.
I have her circular hanger, and am just pondering if I'm going to hang it in my bedroom for those "wear again later" clothes, or if it works better by the entrance to throw scarves and random coats on...

New String photos by Lotta Agaton

These just landed in my inbox! New photos for String, styled by Lotta Agaton and shot by Marcus Lawett. In the bottom photos showing a workspace, you will find a height adjustable table that is the newest addition to the String collections, designed by Björn Dahlström and Anna von Schewen. It's one of few adjustable tables I've seen that would actually work in a home office as well.
I'm planning a shelf wall in my new apt, but can't decide if I should go for plain Elfa shelfs, or invest in the String system. Thoughts anyone?

Krusning lamp shade by Sigga Heimis for IKEA

While on the subject of Spring news... This paper lamp shade by designer Sigga Heimis, whom I had the great pleasure of meeting in Iceland on my last trip there, is coming to Ikea in February. What's so cool about it is that you can shape it any way you like, so every lamp will be different, even though it is bought at the big warehouse.

Perfectly Graphic Ikea Styling by Pella

I just love these photos that Pella styled for Ikea Livet Hemma, and the table lamp Låter, that was new to me, is definitely going on my list for the next trip to the big store. Because one can never have too many lamps, right?

COS x Till Wiedeck, store installation with display tables


For winter 2014 fashion brand COS commissioned Till Wiedeck to develop a bespoke in store installation for their worldwide retail shops. In close collaboration they created “Object XI & XII” a unique interpretation of Wiedeck’s 2012 project Critical Objects. The two tables continue the studio’s exploration of the border between the functional and the sculptural.

“Object XI & XII” is designed to host a carefully curated selection of items in a black and white theme. Merging functionality and abstraction we developed a unique rubber granulate surface resembling Travatine stone while preserving the tactile and functional aspects of the rubber.

The table can be seen in COS stores worldwide from 20th of November 2014.



Ikea launches Sprutt, a storage collection in white

I just got the news that Ikea are launching this temporary collection called Sprutt, available in stores in February. I am most interested in the metal cabinets with labeled drawers, they look like a useful addition to a hallway or entrance area, or perhaps a home office. Not too keen on the bright labels of course, but luckily they are removable... The ladder (called towel rack by Ikea) looks quite interesting too, I like the fact that the ladder steps protrude on the sides, perfect for hanging small things.

Special Edition 24k Gold Seven Chair

The Seven Chair by Arne Jacobsen celebrates its 60th anniversary in 2015, and to mark this occasion Fritz Hansen launches two new special editions of the chair. I fell for this soft pink one, with super luxe 24k gold plated legs!
What I love most is the styling though. Fritz Hansen's images are always great, shot in amazing locations and made by the best stylists and photographers. Somehow they manage to always create something new from these old classics, a feeling of freshness and being right on trend. I think that is really impressive.
