With no fairs to go any time soon, or shops to visit due the lockdown in Amsterdam, I am happy to stroll online to still keep up with design news and interior design in general. This year I regularly partnered with Dutch online store MisterDesign writing a monthly article on the blog. Not only do I love to shop at their store to satisfy my latest lamp addiction, it is also the place where I discover new design brands.
Looking through their store I came across Swedish brand Asplund and looking into the specific items of the collection lots of memories came back! It was a few years ago, I fell in love with the Palais Royal Dining table at the imm fair and when having a look at the rest of the Asplund collection I saw more familiar Design cupboards and tables and had to do a search in my own blog archive to discover I saw these during a diner in the Asplund flagship store in Stockholm seven years ago.
Palais Royal Dining table
The Palais Royal Dining table is a real beauty in my opinion and beside a few other Design tables one of the first round tables I thought had the perfect sculptural look I love so much. Designed by Anya Sebton & Eva Lilja Löwenhielm in 2018 the dining table is part of the Palais family, a series inspired by historical monuments and palaces.
It was the second year travelling with our international group of design bloggers our trip brought us to Stockholm with Asplund being one of our sponsors. The designers of the Tati tables, one of Asplund’s big success stories of 2011, took us through the store and their entire collection.
Characteristic for the Tati collection are the rounded bases we see in each of the dining tables as well as in the side tables, coffee tables and coatrack. Tables are available in different shapes whether you like a round dining table or a rectangular one. Looking at round tables it was the Round Tati table designed by Mats Broberg & Johan Ridderstråle and the new bronze frame that caught my eye.
