I have been very much enjoying these hefty stainless steel vases from Norway, c. 1960 designed by Olaf Joff. Their quirky brutalist style really reminds me of the jewellery of Guy Vidal. They’re great as sculpture on their own, but I think the pop of colour that the flowers contributes lightens everything up nicely. These lovely carnations came from my local supermarket!
Northern Lighting is a company which produces amazing lighting pendants and fixtures which are inspired by Nordic nature. The unique shapes and organic forms remind me of some of my favourite Scandinavian designs. Their “Acorn” pendant seen here is just lovely. The smooth charcoal or eggshell colours are perfect and I love the wood detail. Beautifully styling as well – I’m a sucker for succulents.
I recently stumbled across the fantastic work of London-based printmaker Tessa Horrocks. The prints are a somewhat dark interpretation of otherwise mundane subjects, such as pebbles or flowers. I love the contrast between the sense of volume and detail with the overall pressing flatness of the pieces. Wonderful! I would love to hang one of her “Pebbles are Great” or “Ice Flowers” in my new apartment.
1 / Not sure what the source for this image is (oh, Pinterest), but the colour/texture of the bedding are incredible. If any one has a clue about where these exist, please let me know!
2 / Just added on Hopea, this stunning silver ring designed by Matti J. Hyvarinen (Finland, 1975). I love the sculptural volume of Hyvarinen’s work.
3 / Something about sheepskin draped over Wegner chairs… Via.
