Great set of tables, benches and stackable chairs designed to furnish the Faculty of Humanities at University of Copenhagen. Created by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec design studio for Danish furniture manufacturer Hay.
'With this new collection it was our ambition to resume an old
scandinavian tradition targeting specific architecture and specific
needs in designing new furniture...
In our proposal for the new
range of educational furniture, we have attempted to create furniture
which in form and identity has a clear dating in our age and which
in a compelling manner uncovers the functional needs of a university in
Frosty whites, deep blacks, raw wood and a splash of red... excellent editorial work of Camilla Tange Peylecke, a Danish stylist and an interior design consultant. Her blog is a great source of inspiration, so don't forget to visit! Here - just a few photos from the beautiful home of Louise Simony, an artist and an illustrator. More? See the latest issue of Bolig Liv.
Simple yet so refined: airy scandinavian whites, contrasting blacks, subtle wooden tones, rich, welcoming greens. And the kitchen... divine! Once more the non-obvious obvious comes to my mind - that designing is actually more about substracting than adding.
Montmartre. Yes: Montmartre! Stylish apartment of Caroline Wiart, an interior decorator and her husband Patrice Galiana, a collector. The couple share a passion for Mid-Century modern design and art - literally each piece of furniture in their home is a part of design history.
Classic scandinavian design revamped. Except copper, which is my favourite, two other new colours of the "Pocket" line are available now: raw and ash-white. Perfect for vintage-style kitchens!
Shelf system String was created by Swedish architect Nils "Nisse" Strinning and his wife, designer Kajsa Strinning for a contest initiated by Bonnier public library in 1949. Their project won - it was modular, functional, affordable, easy to transport and assemble. Since then String shelves have become a contemporary classic - timless scandinavian design.
The main idea behind the renovation of this cosy cottage could be defined as an encounter between the old and the new - a blend of modern design, folk and oriental influences. The effect of authenticity has been achieved by using only pure materials such as wood, concrete, plaster and stone.
I am always amazed how intriguing concepts emerge at the border between contras. Just like the one I discovered recently: absolutely modern design inspired by tradition - beautiful line of ceramics named “Stitches” - by Danish designer Gry Fager.
Cosy, modern nursery styled by the creative team from Sissy+Marley, a New York City-based boutique baby planner and concierge service. The room is full of light, all the tones muted, subtle and natural. The space well thought out, organized with tasteful and practical details. Unquestionably: scandinavian style inspiration. I love the animal theme with cute giraffes!
... and take a look at the brilliant, convertible 'Sleepi' bed from Norwegian brand Stokke. Designed to grow with a child, it can be used from birth to approximately 10 years. Clever design!
