I’m pretty sure that anyone who has heard of IKEA, Sweden, Design or IKEA Hacking has already come across these beauties. Pretty Pegs are giving IKEA furniture a little fancy footing (pun most definitely intended ). Unsurprisingly these ultra stylish, fun furniture legs come directly from the land of IKEA, ABBA and Rekorderlig Cider. They can be used […]
So when you think of Sweden you think of pine trees, snow and sauna’s! Well these saunas and the companies hottubs look so cute with that all the wood. We saw these at a home show in Goteborg late last year and really like them, they were a bit too heavy to carry out the […]
Saab have been through some huge changes over the last 12 months which will hopefully see Saab grow into a brand we believe they can be. I’ll admit it now, we do have a soft spot for Saab. We don’t own one, but it’s a brand that has the potential to keep its heritage while […]
Swedes are renowned for this gorgeous scandinavian style so we’re bringing you some of our favourite christmas items from Sweden. We started out this morning with a look at the most famous of all swedish design places, IKEA and now we’re headed to one of our local place Ahlens. You can be sure that if […]
While at the Museum of Arcitecture in Stockholm we saw lots of different gingerbread houses, see the gallery below, then later in the day while at one of the many small design shops we saw this gingerbread house made easy cutter (above). How simple, make the dough, roll it out and then just get the […]
During our recent visit to Sweden’s glass area we saw many small individual glassworks but there was one in particular that stood out. Bergdala Glassworks located in Hovmantorp near Lessebo, was built in 1889 and as with most handmade manufacturing facilities of the time it was very much a community based workshop. Even today you […]
During our visit to Sweden’s glass area which you can read more about here and here, we had the pleasure of watching two of Kosta Boda’s young designers create their works of art. Åsa Jungelius whose pieces include the chic Makeup and stunning Sugar Dandy collection, showcased her fine skills, decorating a glass vase design, […]
Most of you know my love of all things IKEA but I am now one of the truly lucky IKEA fans out there. Why is that you ask? We have been to the begining of time. A place where Billy bookcases are born and allen keys are as common as pumpkins for halloween and snowflakes […]
We debated for a while about how to present todays post to you all. You see the glass area was filled, overflowingly filled with so many beautiful designs that we’ve found it incredibly difficult to narrow it down to a few key pieces to show off, so rather than waffling on as I tend to […]
Along with their crisp simple design style, Swedes are also well known for their exquisite glass pieces. The primitive process still carries on today and we were lucky enough to head to the glass area, Kingdom of Crystal, to check out how they do it and the latest in glass designs. While no-one knows the […]
As most of you know, we’re now in the stunning surroundings of Sweden and what better way to show off Swedish design, than to show you my favourite place. Everytime we go into Gothenburg (or Göteborg) we always, and I mean ALWAYS stop in at Design Torget. Design Torget reminds me of a super stylish […]
