Christmas Joy

December 24, 2019


A few days ago I posted about how I decided to start a new tradition and start collecting every year the Christmas collectibles series by Georg Jensen. Today I thought it would be most appropriate after introducing them to show you around my living room on a festive day like this, how I have decorated with them and other pieces from my beloved Georg Jensen. A very true vision as you have seen from my stories of how my place looks , but a little bit more put together for the purposes of this journal entry. You will find everything that appears in this post under the Julepynt page at Georg Jensen online store.

Other than the Christmas collectibles you can see handing from my handmade wreath and as shown hanging on the windows, or just lying by the table.  A huge tradition I have also embraced is the keeping of the advent calendar every sunday of december all the way till Christmas. I am using my Season Lysestaker from Georg Jensen ( I am sure you have spotted it in my stories so far), and as tradition goes I am left with the 4th and last candle to light.

When it comes to evenings and traditions, hot coffee is a must for every Norwegian home the whole year , here is where the Helix coffee line  becomes absolutely necessary. Especially when you have beloved relatives coming over! I have had the most compliments for the coffee pot!

It seems weird to say this, but at this point I am actually looking forward to next Christmas, I have now started traditions that will last me a lifetime and I cannot wait for the journey to continue. But first, happy holidays everyone and enjoy your Christmas!

Christmas with Georg Jensen Collectibles

December 16, 2019


This year I started my collection of Georg Jensen’s Christmas Collectibles , a limited edition series of festive decorations created by a different designer every year for Georg Jensen. For more than 100 years Georg Jensen has pioneered the field of Scandinavian design by constantly delivering products and experiences that elevate the everyday. This season the collectibles are based on the classic Christmas symbols of love, togetherness and tradition: hearts, stars and trees all plated in gold and palladium.

“Jul” is the Scandinavian word for Christmas, and up here it is one of the most popular words in the vocabulary. Because in Scandinavia “jul” is not just a single evening of gift exchanges, it is a whole season of having a good time. It is that part of the year when you go out of your way to make others feel happy and loved.

The 2019 Christmas Collectible collection is designed by longtime Georg jensen collaborator Sanne Lund Traberg using the graphic lines and shapes often seen in both cubist and art deco pieces. Her work is both contemporary and timeless.

Christmas is a time for showing love to your family and friends so what better symbol to use on a tree decoration than a heart? This gold-plated Christmas ornament features a beautifully crafted heart suspended inside a delicate frame which features graphic patterns inspired by Cubism and Art Deco, the designer says.

I have been in Norway for a couple of years now and every year there has been an excuse to not decorate for Christmas. Moving houses, spending christmas abroad, and other reasons. This year I made a promise to myself to not only celebrate Christmas, but to start with a new tradition as well. Being very much on the minimal side I do not want to overwhelm my house with baubles and decorations, but with ornaments that will mean something to me for years to come as well. Adding my Georg Jensen collectibles collection every year seems like the best way to also look forwards to the next festive season as well! Win win!

Old favorites, new colors.

December 5, 2019


Old favorites in new colors for Stelton and their award-winning and timeless EM77 thermos with the unique, patented rocker stopper was created by Erik Magnussen in 1977 which is one of Stelton’s best-selling designs of all time and for a good reason. A classic can almost never be out of style and it will fit in any kitchen or environment. I shot a small editorial for the new colors and the beautiful light grey popped out to me.  In the same line now can also be found an electrical kettle ( as shown above) , a tea maker and a french press ( as shown below), again in the same light grey color. In the same simple idiom as EM77 vacuum jug, the EM77 press coffee maker holds eight cups, and its double walls keeps the coffee warm for longer. Perfect for gifts this season, I have often times find it hard to choose a color. I already have 3 different colors throughout the years in my cabinets and I usually change them around according to the season or the occasion. In all honesty I was mostly excited for their electrical kettle, the design is simply fantastic. The electrical part goes completely under so when it is plugged in and in use you only see a small cord and nothing else (observe photo below). I have trouble thinking of an electric kettle I would prefer having , and that I can say wholeheartedly.

3 Days of Design : Hotel Charlottenborg

July 4, 2019


 

I was lucky to attend the opening party of Hotel Charlottenborg exhibition the day before the official doors opened for the public,  which means I was also able to take a few photos of my own to show you some of my favorite pieces. Hotel Charlottenborg showcased 16 furniture brands in one of Copenhagen’s most beautiful buildings, Charlottenborg Festsal, and is curated by the team behind Ark Journal. The exhibition focused on the hospitality scene, in fresh settings that play up the zone between private and public, creating a home away from home.

“The home away from home concept and the zone between private and public are some of the interesting trends we are currently reading in the interior design of many new restaurants and hotels. The hotel framework is therefore both a creative framework for creating an exhibition – and interesting for the participating companies, because precisely the contract market is very attractive” says Didde Rishøj, consultant at Dansk Industri.

Fritz Hansen, Kvist Industries, Skovby Møbelfabrik, Re Beds, Møbelsnedkeri Kjeldtoft, Magnus Olesen, Eilersen (more of their new sofa as shown in the exhibition and their history I wrote here) , Cane-line, Randers+Radius, Vahle, W.O. Interior, Overgaard & Dyrman, Søren Lund Møbler, Four Design, Brdr. Petersen and Form & Refine , are the exhibitors , a group composed of both large and small, young and more established companies. All the brands are showing a mixture of new pieces juxtaposed to some classics and elements that help elevate the Hotel Charlottenborg concept.

While perusing through all the exhibitors , we were also treated to drinks in Charlottenborg’s large inner courtyard that became a quaint cafe for the 3 Days of Design, where I must thank Lisa ( my wing woman extraordinaire liaison from Eilersen) for arranging so I never missed an opportunity to drink and have fun. What are good friends for :)
