THE REST KEY HOLDER // YNDLINGSTING

yndlingsting_rest_key-holder

I came across the REST key holder online and fell in love. It is handmade using oak tree covered with gold leafs for a beautiful effect. The key holder has 3 gold coated power magnets underneath, where you can put your keys.

“The REST key holder is a symbolic key holder in many ways. It is designed to remind you of to leave your problems at the front door. It also happens to be that REST in Danish (as well as German) means residues. And this is excatly what the REST key holder is made of: wood residues.” – Yndlingsting

yndlingsting_rest_clean

Yndlingsting is a Danish brand that creates products designed and crafted with love to enrich your life and bring a touch of magic to your home. They believe in authentic interior design, because slow living is according to them a choice of lifestyle not a trend.

The captivating print on top of the key holder is also by Yndlingsting, and is a limited edition print from their notebook My Daily Adventure. Find it and all of their other products here.

SCENTSOUVENIR FROM NORWAY

thatscandinavianfeeling_SCENTSOUVENIR

The ScentSouvenir is a cute way for someone to take home or share a unique piece of Norway in the form of scent. It is handmade in Norway using only natural essences, and has therapeutic effects because the aroma of spruce is known to be both grounding & stimulating.

Open the lid, close your eyes and breathe in the true essence of the Norwegian Woods: a blend made from different types of spruce from the deep forests of Østerdalen.

THE KNOT CUSHION

knot-pillow-details

The Knot cushion has now finally gone into production with Design House Stockholm, after being created in 2011 by Ragnheiður Ösp Sigurðardóttir. She has created a series of variations, all knotted in different ways and available in a range of colours.

The design was born when she was experimenting with tubular knitting on a machine. She was looking for an efficient way to manufacture the legs of a teddy bear instead of crocheting them by hand, but ended up with a knot-like cushion. Where exactly the inspiration came from she is not sure about, but she says that she was in the scouts as a child and was very good at doing knots..

“I try to create unusual designs; products that are unpredictable and that make people curious.” – Ragnheiður Ösp Sigurðardóttir

ARNE JACOBSEN + DESIGN LETTERS

ingridesign_designletters HI

This typography was drawn by Danish architect Arne Jacobsen in 1937, but it still communicate a very modern minimal look today. The monochrome style is consistent through the whole range of DESIGN LETTERS products such as cups, plates, teapots, tea towels, notebooks, pencils and more.

I love the mugs, I have one with an I (my initial) and one with a C (my two loves in life – my boyfriend & coffee..) They are the perfect size and also comes with lids if you want to use them as a container instead.

Here is a selection of some of the many items available with the iconic vintage ABC lettering on, find them all here.

Did you know that the letters were originally created for internal signage at the Aarhus City Hall?
