Adding a touch of Nordic style to your home isn’t all about jaw dropping open plan living, expansive floor to ceiling windows or expensive pieces of furniture. Sometimes all it takes is a simple update to what you’ve already got.
If, like me, you’re passionate about design as well as your home then feelings, as well as function, really matter.
So for my latest pick of new Nordic treats I’ve looked at smaller everyday items. Wise investments that will serve you well for many years to come and would certainly make me smile when I enter a room.
The true embodiment of sleek looks and effortless practicality, the Pujo coat rack is extremely compact but carefully crafted. The main rod is made from matte black powder coated metal with the knob on top black-stained ash.
It’s just perfect for a hallway, bedroom or dressing room and would still look amazing covered in coats and scarves. For me it’s not just a piece of furniture but a small work of art too.
Muuto are such an exciting brand, and really one of the best examples of Scandinavian design today. In fact their name, Muuto, comes from muutos, meaning new perspective, in Finnish.
Picking just one piece from their summer/fall 2018 collection was really difficult, but you would be hard pressed to find a more striking focal point for any room than their framed mirror.
Available in two sizes, they are available in three colours and this includes the glass. The grey frame comes with a clear finish, but the rose and taupe come with a matching hue to the glazing too.
Cushions are my ‘thing’ and I almost aways come back from my Nordic travels with one in my suitcase. So you can imagine how excited I was to read about this latest piece from Republic of Fritz Hansen’s new Objects Collection.
Arne Jacobson is not only known for his iconic furniture, such as the ‘Egg’ and ‘Swan’ chairs, but also his numerous textile designs too. This dizzingly geometric knitted cushion comes in two sizes and three different colours. Each one is also filled with ‘Fossflakes’, a new Danish synthetic filling that never flattens, washes without clumping, as well as being hypoallergenic and providing ergonomic support.
Meaning ‘dewdrop’ in Finnish, the Kastehelmi Collection is an Iittala classic. The design draws inspiration from dewdrops glistening in the morning sun, as well as the delicate bubbles in the pressed glass that give every piece its distinctive character.
I adore the pieces I have collected, especially the cake stand which adds just that special something to every family occasion. This season however the timeless votives, jars and dinnerware are available in a choice of new colours, a beautiful smoky grey, refreshing aqua blue or a very on trend forest green.
Do you ever return from a holiday and regret not buying something you’ve seen? Well for me, since my recent trip to Oslo, it’s been the Nellemann Candle Holder. I can’t stop thinking about it, and I’ve already earmarked a spot on my shelf for one too.
These wonderfully decorative pieces come in four different coloured glazes, you can group them together to create a dramatic centre piece for your table, as well as combine candles and flowers together, as they are can also be used as individual vases and hold enough water for a single stem or small posy.
