WASHED OUT

October 30, 2012

Light oak floors, multiple layers, white walls, splashes of earth tones, iconic Fritz Hansen furniture and an overdose of light through surrounding glass. This architectural dream represents all that is contemporary Scandinavian minimalism. To get the look, opt for Oak Tide by Kährs Lodge Collection.

Our latest infatuation is with Iittala’s Vitriini collection, namely their glass/oak boxes. What better way to display all the little things you love? Images by Iittala

Today we’re pining for these candlebottles made out of Swedish pine, designed by acclaimed architect Daniel Franzén. The original idea was to combine traditional Swedish handicraft and a standard thing used in many young homes – remember your first apartment when leftover bottles from a party were (re)used as candleholders? Available in both natural pine and black. […]
