Metal Dots | MUUTO product news

How do you like these stylish metal hooks by Muuto. I spotted their wooden dots in different colours for the first time when visiting the showroom in Copenhagen, really cool but somehow I still have no colour at home beside my nespresso coffee maker…. On the other hand I have a bit to many metal at home maybe […]

vtwonen & design beurs 2016

It’s that time of the year again! To me it seems I write the same every year but I guess anyone who visited the vtwonen & Design fair over the last years will agree with me that it is always fun and a surprise, next to the different brands representing their collections, to visit the […]

Bedroom moodboard

Black, white, brown…. a bit of grey? Do you ever get tired of yourself, I do!  I have been selling tons of stuff lately to make place in my storage for furniture I recently bannend from my living, like the low besta cabinets and the huge black cupboard. For a few weeks the cabinets looked […]

New collection by Amsterdam based fashion brand AMATØR

I have always loved the name of the fashion brand Eline Starink started up, while working in the business environment, to celebrate individuality and bringing contrast to a world that is dominated by primarily black ensembles. Eline grew up in Norway and the name of her brand AMATØR is dedicated to her little brother Christian who […]

‘Scoop’ | Leather pillows by Iina Kettunen

I already posted some pictures of the styled room by Anna Pirkola on the blog but I really wanted to show you one of the details I discovered in the stand that I really loved! You could call it a little ‘scoop’ but the brown leather pillows made especially for the stand are so new […]

Asun Magazine X Anna Pirkola | Habitare 2016

It’s not new to present different design brands styled together in a box or home setting. I think the work we previously saw Lotta Agaton doing, curating a selection of products in a similair way to show the importance of styling explains why this is a great way to showcase your product as a brand, read it […]

At the fair the shelf was also presented in a special section at […]

We make tables. That’s what we do. | Het Heerenhuis

Some things don’t need words, and that is exactly the case with ‘Het Heerenhuis‘ On their website they state: We make tables. That’s what we do. Simple as that and I am pretty sure you will agree with me that this small desk is a real beauty with it’s rough finish and leather table top. I […]
