Perpective Studio in Stockholm

Monday, February 20, 2017

While in Stockholm for the Furniture and Light fair, I managed to find some time on the very last afternoon to visit Perpective, a new space that works as a Lifestyle store & design studio. I found many favorite designs in the store and I left with some things that have been in my wishlist for a while along with music recommendations from the very engaging owner Robin (check Available from Erik Rapp). The studio is located at Sankt Eriksplan 15 in Stockholm while their online store is due to open very soon. If I was in the city however I would just stop by, if only to enjoy the beautiful space and catch the latest news from Robin. Below you can find some of the photos I shot during my last visit, my only regret not having enough time to visit during the day for moodier photos in natural light!

SFF Stockholm 2017 : Part 2

Saturday, February 18, 2017

As promised today I am sharing Part 2 from my time at Stockholm's Furniture and Light fair with some of the things that caught my eye (Check part 1 here).

At Louis Poulsen their vision is to create designs that forms light. To complement the environment with just the right light. Light which gives a pleasant and comfortable atmosphere. The Panthella MINI (as seen above) is a smaller version of Verner Panton's classic lamp from 1971, and I think it embodies that vision perfectly. As captured above, in a combination of black and white acrylic, both lamps emanate a soft light that hugs their environment in the softest way. 

 A few weeks ago I wrote about the news from &Tradition , I was looking forward to seeing some of the new designs and additions and I was not disappointed. Some of my favorites include the brand new In Between stools and the Working Title table lamp as seen above while I also spotted new sizes (below) for the very successful Fly series by Space Copenhagen : A new one seater and a taller sofa table. 

One of the places I absolutely want to visit next time I am in Copenhagen (hopefully before 3 days of design in June) is the Frama headquarter and Studio Store, located in central Copenhagen in the historic and protected neighborhood of Nyboder. I stopped by their stand and was treated to the beautiful Frama world of hues and unique craftsmanship. Frama won this years award for Kitchen of the year at Elle Decoration Swedish awards, it is always so great to see more ideas come from the team and be able to experience their universe first hand.  

I spend a long time at Muuto stand where I experienced first hand some of my favorites from the new designs :  The Outline chair by Anderssen & Voll , the new Ripple throw by Margrethe Odgaard and the beautiful new Workshop chair by Cecilie Manz (all news can be found here ). A seen above in an office styling setting, the Ambit lamps in new dusty blue color, the beautiful Fiber side chairs, and the Folded shelves on the wall in the background in olive color. Below something that has been on my wishlist, the Compile shelf system in grey (combination 2).

At Skagerak the new Hven series designed by Swedish Anton Björsing were the center of attention and rightfully so. The armchairs and tables are designed to make you invite your family and friends over a little more often. Build with high comfort, a light and simple expression and from FSC-certified wood, Hven is a long-term minded series with regard to aesthetics, functionality and environment. 

Last but not least at the press brunch at Gubi, we were treated with some of this seasons exciting news. most notable the new upholsteries for the Beetle Dining chairs (as seen above) and the new Pedrera  Ana Pendant Lamp Black,created as a tribute by Ruiz Millet to the designer of the original Pedrera lamps (as seen below).

SFF Stockholm 2017 : Part 1

Friday, February 17, 2017

Today I will be sharing some of the news from Stockholm's Furniture and Light fair I attended a few days ago. I had my camera out the whole time trying to get opportunities for photos in the crowded booths and while I didn't think I would be lucky, when editing I realized I had more photos that I though so I will be splitting this post in two parts. I hope you enjoy my tour around my favorite stands in SFF17 !

I have already featured some of Menu's news on the blog (check here for the press photos), so I was very much looking forward to seeing some of the much anticipated designs up and close, and I was not disappointed. The Tailor sofa (above) that is meant to be seen by all sides as per designers Rui Alves words was a delight see, while in the same photo we can catch a glimpse of the new Afteroom bar stool by talented young Taiwanese duo Hung-Ming Chen and Chen-Yen Wei and hanging above them the Cast Pendant which embodies Menu’s philosophy of soft minimalism. A detail on the far left of the same photo above reveals a new color/material  for the Pepe Marble Mirror designed by Studio Pepe and a closer look at the delicate Afteroom bar stool. On the last photo of the Menu highlights the much photographed front of the booth featured the September sofa designed by Theresa Arns. 

I was delighted to see a fresh design for the booth of Ferm Living as well (photo above taken in the Fair). Usually very visually crowded with news, this years design of the room allowed for more negative space which I felt brought an elegance that suited Ferm Living style. Among the news (photo below) we can see the Punctual shelf in new Rose color, while on the shelf the Buckle Jars in all 3 color variations, the new Medley Knit Cushions, Plant Box in Ochre and a glimpse of the Herman Chairs in the front of the photo (all news can be found at News - Living SS17).

I could not help but stop at String and take some photos. This year the stand ,dressed in white, presents a contrast from their colorful press photos (as featured a few weeks ago on the blog), which I feel accentuated even more the lines and minimalism of the classic design. New shelves and new additions where incorporated neatly into the elegant space with the new wardrobe additions displayed beautifully on one of the walls (photo below). 


Fritz Hansen was always so crowded, a second visit was required in order to capture some of the highlights. As seen above the office of Fritz was re imagined and displayed as a cozy space with mood boards providing plenty of inspiration and an insight of Fritz Hansens world of design. Below Arne Jacobsens series 7 chairs gets a new colorful look. Fritz Hansen’s Choice 2017 is a new interpretation of Arne Jacobsen’s iconic Series 7 that imbues the functional, minimalist Danish design form with the soft, feminine colours of Japanese cherry blossoms.The shell of this special 2017 edition is available in two colours – a deep-red merlot and a serene, pastel nude – developed and perfected over time in the Fritz Hansen design studio to match the new rose gold coating on the four-legged base.


Last but not least for todays blogpost a detail at the Vitra stand that caught my eye. I love seeing moodboards and a behind the scenes look and this photo captured that feeling perfectly.

Looking forward to reveal part two tomorrow with more news and highlights!

Intimate Valentines Day

Tuesday, February 14, 2017


Ad // Sponsored post in collaboration with Ellos. All opinions are my own.

 It is Valentines day today and even though I am not a super fan of the self imposed holiday, I am always up for any excuse to make brownies and take out the new tableware and cutlery. While at the Oslo Design Fair I stopped by Bloomingville's exhibition where immediately  a set of handmade ceramic tableware caught my eye. The line Sandrine (the plates and cups I used)  can be found at Ellos Home (among with an array of other Bloomingville designs) as well as the black cutlery I combined them with. I would have loved to get some anemones for the day (or any day as they are among my favorite flowers), however I did not find any so that tradition for the day will remain unfulfilled. There is plenty of chocolate though, a homemade brownie (I spoiled the surprise with the recipe in this post a few weeks ago ) and delicious chocolates from Chokladefabriken that I brought from Stockholm. We chose to spend the morning in bed, enjoying a cup of coffee after we prepared the brownies with the ice cream with chocolate upon chocolate. If anything, the day calls for it ;) 

His...
And hers...
A good idea if you prefer enjoying a more toned down version of the day, is of course to light a candle or burn some incense. I bought a candle just for today while in Stockholm, and I avoided burning it until this very morning. This way it feels a little bit more special even if it something that can be done any day of the week. I also bought the most beautiful brass incense holder , as seen above, but burning both can be overwhelming, I recommend choosing either one or the other.

Stockholm : Mornington My Home away from home

Monday, February 13, 2017

Tomorrow I will be finishing up the post with photos of the news I shot while at the Furniture and Light fair, but today I thought it would be a good idea to show off the beautiful premises of Mornington hotel in Stockholm, my home away from home for the week.
Located in Nybrogatan 53 , close to the metro station and just a few minutes away from the best restaurants, cafes and shopping in the city, Mornington offers not only great location and service but also multiple newly renovated rooms to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Do ask for a room at the second floor for a similar look to mine, the stuff will do their best to accommodate you!This is my second time in Stockholm and the second time I have stayed at Mornington ( you can find the previous post  here). This time around due to visiting in winter, my photos turned up a little moodier, a little darker, but at the same time I think they convey my mood better.
Due to being extremely busy while in Stockholm, I did not spend as much time as I would have liked to in the room, however I still found time to enjoy a warm coffee by the window while answering emails early in the morning before going down for breakfast. It is these moments that I feel make for a good start of a day, no matter how busy!
