Mid-Century modern in Stockholm

This apartment, flawless in its raw imperfection, belongs to one of the creative directors behind the swedish clothing brand Hope - Stefan Söderberg. The original herringbone parquet makes terrific background for Mid-Century modern pieces. I like the way the floors were renovated - sandblasting oak emphasized beautiful texture of old wood.

Clean lines

Well-weighed linear theme throughout the entire house. On a large and small scale - from architectural forms to the subtle interior details. Simple. Great.

Cobble Hill, Brooklyn

New York apartment of Stefanie Brechbuehler and Robert Highsmith, a couple behind the design collaborative Workstead. A real home, where every single object has its own story. Eames lounge chair inherited from Mr. Highsmith’s grandfather, the blue and yellow abstract art piece painted by his grandmother. The walnut bed designed by a former classmate. DIY burlap curtains. And in the living room - Jean Prouvé Potence Lamp found on sale. 

A great example of how to create a real home, a place that has a genuine, unique soul. Not much, but it takes time: appreciate family treasures and collect only things that matter to you.

“Good furniture is not necessarily something that turns all concepts on their head and represents something new and previously unseen. We have nothing against standing on the shoulders of past examples of good, classic design, such as Eames and Wegner, and being the next phase in a modern tradition. The main thing for us is to create furniture that is honest in both its actual function and its visual expression. Good furniture must quite simply stand there and invite you to use it”
Henrik Thygesen

“If you try desperately to find something new, it just won’t happen. But if you work your way into the design process and apply some direction, every now and then some opportunities arise that you hadn’t seen before.”
Sebastian Jørgensen

We do Wood is a danish furniture company established by Henrik Thygesen and Sebastian Jørgensen, a duo with a strong design vision. Functionality, quality, honesty - and the crucial ingredient: sustainability. The furniture, just like traditional scandinavian pieces - is made to last. But we have an important innovative aspect as well: new material. Bamboo, as a species more eco friendly than nordic types of wood responds to our need of being environmentally responsible. It re-circulates large volumes of CO2 and grows very fast without chamical fertilizers. And looks great!

Bathroom luxury with a view

Not just a bathroom but a bathing room. Extravagant space nicely warmed with cosy wooden floors. Extra large windows. Enjoy the sun.
