I have a huge admiration for the Danish design company, Stelton, so I was quite curious to see what new product releases they would have at the AW17 FORMEX. Without a doubt, the hero story was around the STOCKHOLM  collection.

11 Things I’ve Learnt in 12 Months Living in Stockholm

Last week saw the one year anniversary of us arriving in Stockholm. I can’t believe how quickly that time has gone by can you? It’s been a fantastic and very busy year for us settling in. While we’ve spent a lot of time exploring the city, we haven’t really explored the country itself. I guess this is because we’ve used up holidays going to France (twice), Morocco, Cyprus and Germany. This is in no way because we want to escape, it’s the sudden feeling of freedom of close proximity to all of these places after living in Australia and New Zealand for so long.  While we will continue to hop on the plane and make the most of Europe and surrounds, this next year we will definitely be exploring this beautiful country.

By now I think that you’d be well aware of IKEA’S collaboration with HAY entitled, YPPERLIG. It will hit the stores in three weeks and I have to say that I don’t think I’ve ever seen so much excitement around about a product launch before. Have you? Each time I, or others have put something on social media about it, people comment that they are desperately waiting for it to arrive. There’s this sense of fear that they are going to miss out; that they are going to arrive in store only to find that what’s on their list, is already sold out. Some are even suggesting that they will camp out the night before! What? Well, it certainly is an exciting partnership of creative forces.

When you name your collection Bliss, you’re setting rather high standards for a product in terms of that ultimate feeling. But when you couple the dreamy designs of Emma Von Brömssen, with the fluid and tactile ceramics of Kajsa Cramer, the description couldn’t be more fitting.

Leading on from last week’s post about buying for a purpose and with a conscience, over the coming months I will feature some beautifully made and timeless Scandinavian design, a lot of it I had the pleasure of viewing at the Stockholm Furniture Fair. I will kick it off with Skagerak, a Danish company that has been designing furniture for over forty years and over this time, accumulating many industry awards. Putting their history and accolades aside, true to a lot of Scandinavian style, their products are all about form and function, with of course, great design. Skagerak’s motto is “design for generations” meaning that not only do they create beautiful product, they also take quality and sustainability very seriously.

I had no idea how many Swedish traditions there were until I arrived in Stockholm. There are so many in fact, that there is an entire 160-page book dedicated to them. We are having a lot of fun discovering them and deciding which ones we will take with us when we move back home.

SisterMAG meets SCHOTT CERAN event | photo by Timo Roth

Last Friday I flew to Cologne to attend a blogger event hosted by SisterMAG and SCHOTT CERAN to celebrate their latest product glass ceramic range, MiradurTM. I heard recently from a reliable source that the team at SisterMag really know how to put on events and it’s always so great to spend some time with fellow bloggers in person, so I jumped at the chance.
