I don’t know about you but I am going a bit crazy for plants lately. In my search for the best ways to display them I fell in love with this beautiful range from Ferm Living. I particularly think the plant stands and wall holders are great. Which one would you add to your living space?
Use these plant stands in two different heights to display your plants and flowers in a new and elegant way.
Why not hang your plants up with this beautiful geometric plant hangers, a great mix of retro yet modern!
Or add a little extra greenness in your home by hanging these plant holders on your wall. Great for plants & flowers in the living room or what about herbs in the kitchen.
You can even have one or more of these plant boxes as decoration in your house, temporary storage or room dividers.
If you dont have too much space or simply juts want to add a little touch then the hexagon pots are great. They can also be used in the plant stands or wall mounted plant holders.
Great news guys! Normann Copenhagen has teamed up with Copenhagen-based design agency Femmes Régionales to launch a new collection of small day-to-day pieces for the home called Daily Fiction. Following in the footsteps of HAY and their Mini Market, Normann Copenhagen will have pop-up shops inside different stores around the world with their new stationary & accessory range. The collection consists of more than 200 small designs for day-to-day use such as notebooks, gift wrapping, stickers, pencil sharpeners, scissors, various writing implements and more, just like a candy shop for grownups!
Each of the products has been given its own tone of voice, for instance with an eraser with the text ‘never forever’, felt pens with the title ‘make your marks’ or notebooks saying ‘fill in the blanks’ to light up your everyday life. The assortment of colors, patterns and materials is said to encourage creativity, play and to create the daily story that suits your individual personality.
“For a long time we have wanted to add a new category of small design products to our existing collection of designs. We get a lot of inspiration from fashion at Normann Copenhagen, so it was natural for us to look for a collaborator in the world of fashion.” – Britt Bonnesen (Normann Copenhagen’s brand manager)
Daily Fiction will be available worldwide in selected stores in Antwerpen, Barcelona, Berlin, Brussel, Copenhagen, Düsseldorf, Hamburg, Helsinki, Hong Kong, Paris, Seoul, Shanghai, Tokyo and more this summer. From today you can find the collection in their flagship store in Copenhagen.
💛 I’m currently loving this lip treat from Nuori, both the beautiful branding & the product inside.
Branding: So nice, fresh and minimalistic with the perfect pop of colour. The premium designed protective packaging has a simplistic expression and is easy to open. It cleverly has a start-using-by date stamped on the front of the outer packaging and the expiry date stamped on the top of the tube as a reminder. I really feel like the packaging design reflects the freshness of the product.
Product: A lovely blend of natural hydrating wonders; sweet almond & apricot oils along with shea, avocado, and cocoa butter. It really works wonders for dry lips, my lips are now so smooth and nourished after only using it for about a week. Thumbs up!
“NUORI, a new Scandinavian beauty brand, is reinventing how we view freshness in the beauty industry” – The Telegraph
Its finally here; the Milan Design Week 2016! I have my pass ready for the Salone Del Mobile exhibition and can’t wait to go and browse later this week. I will also be exploring the rest of the city and of course go to see Structure which will be showcasing Norwegian contemporary crafts & design. It will be a busy week ahead, but so exciting! Follow along here on the blog for updates on what I find, and also on my Instagram where I will be posting images thought-out the week.
To start the countdown I though I would present my absolute favourite find from last years Salone Del Mobile, the PULK storage bench designed by Herman Studio and made in Denmark by the Hans Knudsen Institute.
Pulk means sledge, and to me there is something so Scandinavian about a sledge. Growing up winter was a big thing, we would play in the snow building snowmen and also ride sledges down any nearby hills all day long. So this sledge takes me back to that winter wonderland feeling.. This piece of indoor furniture however is not for using in the snow, but instead a smart storage solution for your home. When you open the top you find hidden compartments for keeping shoes, scarves, magazine or any small items you want to keep put of sight. I think it would be the perfect bench to keep in a hallway for sitting on when putting on your shoes.
“With PULK we have the reinterpreted the anatomy of a sledge and turned it into a piece of furniture, turned things upside down and created a new function from a strong reference” – Herman Studio
Will you be going to Salone Del Mobile or any other exhibitions or events during the Milan Design Week? Would be great to meet up with fellow bloggers or design enthusiasts so let me know. Ciao!
