The ÄGGCØDDLER designed by Swedish Jois Lundgren is a simple & nice product. It is a beautifully designed white porcelain cup shaped like an egg with a lid strapped on by a silicon rubber band. In it you can make anything you want based on eggs from cakes to omelettes, here are some recipes to get your imagination started. ÄGGCØDDLER’s are great for breakfast, brunch and whenever you want a snack.

NOVITÀ | IKEA

Photo by Ingrid Opstad

As a Scandinavian in Italy one of the best places to go is of-course IKEA. It always makes me feel like home no matter where I am (even though I am not Swedish..) This week we had two trips to the IKEA in Carugate near Milan. I love going there as it is very big and I always spot new products before anywhere else. This time what caught my eye was the new bamboo stands for tablets and / or books called RIMFORSA. The stand can be used on your worktop or desk, or you can even hang it on the wall for more space when cooking. It has a modern and simplistic look, and is very sturdy so it doesn’t fall. “When I designed RIMFORSA I wanted to inspire people to cook – and help make the kitchen a practical place for preparing food together with family and friends. With RIMFORSA organisers I wanted to make it easier to store and display fruits and spices in a beautiful way. The stainless steel together with bamboo brings a modern style with high quality, and is a step towards a more sustainable use of materials.” – Ehlén Johansson

The packaging of the new FRÖER seeds range is so cute and colourful, and makes me wish I had green fingers. Maybe these sets will make it easier for me to try to grow something..

I also liked the new range of outdoor decorative lightning called SOLVINDEN based around apples and pears. How cute is this pear-shaped lighting chain?

The Italian IKEA’s always have an amazingly good selection of coffee and cakes, so we had to make a pitstop; mocaccino coffee’s, Swedish Easter cake and chocolate crostata cake.

On the way out we had to have a browse through the food section where I discovered that now they sell frozen waffles which made me very happy. So handy for the times you just want a little waffle heart but don’t have the time to make it.

SWIDEN DESIGN by Swedish born Charlotte Swiden (yes that is her actual name!) creates ‘beautiful, playful products for your home and everyday living’. Her designs and creative techniques have been highly influenced by her Swedish heritage and love of nature, and she likes order, structure and a lot of white space like most other Scandinavians do. Charlotte is now based in Melbourne, Australia where she continues to create colourful and fun products.

I especially like her LUKAS Giclée Prints collection, with bold colourful fruit prints which makes me long for summer:
