Did you know that it’s the national coffee day today? In honour of all things coffee I therefore decided to share a little selection of some nice Scandinavian design mugs. So grab a coffee and have a browse;
KÄHLER ‘BARISTO CUP’
This collection of aesthetic coffee cups by Danish Kähler is so effortlessly beautiful, and adds a design twist to any kitchen. You can also get the Baristo Stand to create a cosy café atmosphere in your own home.
ALMEDAHLS ‘SILL MUG’
This mug has a traditional pattern of herring (or sill as we say in Scandinavia) on, which has been around since it was created in Sweden in the 50s. Now it has become a design classic with the perfect Nordic mood.
DARLING CLEMENTINE ‘RAINDROPS MUG’
Enjoy a coffee on a rainy day from this pretty mug by Norwegian Darling Clementine. If you are more of a confetti kinda person there is also another mug for you, but you know that rain is just confetti from the sky anyway..
DESIGN HOUSE STOCKHOLM ‘MINE’
Technically this is a teacup but I thought it was too beautiful to leave out. The Mine cup was designed by Anna Kraitz and is an elegant piece of everyday luxury. The main feature is the non-traditional handle which comes in different colours and adds an unexpected touch.
FERM LIVING ‘GEOMETRY ESPRESSO CUPS’
This set of four cups all in different design by Danish Ferm Living are a fun way to liven up your table. The geometric pattern gives the perfect Scandinavian feel, and they work just as well alone as together.
The Sarjaton mug by Finnish design brand Iittala come in pink and white with a subtle knitted pattern or white with a simplistic tree pattern. The whole range is inspired and shaped by Finnish traditions, and rooted in folklore and artisan rituals.
DESIGN LETTERS ‘MONOGRAM MUG’
The alphabet porcelain mugs with typography by the iconic Danish designer Arne Jacobsen are everywhere nowadays. They are available in the letters A – Z and are so versatile; use them to serve coffee or tea, as a candle holder, to store pens in on your desk or simply just as decorations on a shelf spelling out a name or feeling (I have me & my boyfriends initials and I love it)..
Hope your day was was full of coffee & joy!

I have to confess; I have become a bit obsessed with Etsy lately. So I though it was a good idea to share some of my favourite Scandinavian inspired finds with you guys as there are so many great small shops out there to discover!

PULPIT ROCK RETRO POSTER by EmuDesigns:
Retro poster design of the beautiful Pulpit Rock, which is one of the top tourist attractions in Norway (and very close to where I grew up!)
I’m so happy to introduce the new ingridesign FJORDS collection now available in my storenvy online shop. The design is based on the feeling of wanderlust and is a tribute to the amazing and breathtaking fjords in Norway. I grew up in Sandnes overlooking a fjord, and it was something I would almost take for granted until I moved away. Now I long for it and see it as a symbol of home and calmness.
FJORD /fēˈôrd, fyôrd/ a long, narrow, deep inlet of the sea between high cliffs, as in Norway and Iceland, typically formed by submergence of a glaciated valley.
The collection currently consists of three different poster prints in two different sizes; 460mm x 615mm (18 x 24) or 305mm x 406mm (12 x 16), all printed on thick durable matte paper. The design is also available on a white soft 80% polyester + 20% cotton fleece fabric pillow, as well as a black unisex tank top. Click on any image below to find out more or make a purchase;
