Who thought you could put flowers in a paper vase, but it is possible with a little help from a plastic bottle. This very colourful creation is called Chrome Tigers and is a collaboration between the paper wizard Future Days and pattern designer Smooth Life. We love it!
As we’re approaching autumn, things are getting colder and I do love the first misty mornings. This amazing photo, called Silence, is created by photographer Stefan Isaksson and was shot a misty autumn morning in Bohuslän, Sweden. Just love it!!!
I just love this necklace Blå Eld Halfmoon. It’s made from recycled classic Swedish porcelain by Sägen who believes that it’s important to keep things that have a story to tell. The blue porcelain makes a mighty chic match with silver. A modern retro dream as unique as you are.
If you have a lot of rings, storing them might be a problem. Look no further, we have a great solution for you! These Iceberg Ring Cones are designed and handmade by Anna Siivonen, and are sold as a pack of two.-Nordic Design Collective
During our trendspotting tour, we saw a new colour palette at the trade shows. The colours are more to the darker side and with a bit of 70s influence. Mustard, navy, plum, aubergine and dusty rose are the big hit colours of the season!
This Monday morning I received an old fashion postcard and I loved it, so much better than getting an email or a text. So I have challenged myself to send a postcard every week to someone near and dear. The first postcards to go out are these, “Talking” by A Grape Design. The quirky design and funny associations will be well received with my friends.
Wow, I just spotted these inital rings by KGH accessories, and fell a little bit in love. I’ve also been told that rose gold is the very hottest metal for the upcoming autumn season, so these must really be spot on! See blog for more details.
Welcome to another great exhibition “Woolgather” by one of our photographers Dan Isaac Wallin. The doors open on the 1st September and you have until the end of November, so if you are in Gothenburg don’t miss this one. See blog for more details.
Our designers are spread all over the trade show Formex. Outside the designated areas for new designers we find all of these talents.
One of the most interesting corners of Formex is where they’ve located Young Designers and Next Step. This year, they gave the Young Designer a much needed face lift and added a cafe in the area, which really helped in putting the spotlight on the designers. Well done!
