PREPPING FOR SWEDISH SURFACES

Sarah

On Wednesday, 26 April 2017, the Ambassador of Sweden, H.E. Jan Thesleff, will transform his private residence into a gallery for an evening.

The evening will see a showcasing of Kährs wood flooring from Sweden by Nordic Homeworx alongside unique art and carpets by Swedish artist Cecilia Setterdahl of Carpets CC.

We are very honoured to have H.E. Farida Abdulla Kamber Al Awadhi – President of the Association of Professional Interior Designers (APID), as honorary guest for the event.

We look forward to celebrating Swedish craftsmanship, art and design in the UAE!

ART-FILLED HOME IN THE LAKES

Sarah

We love this artistic family home in Maeen, The Lakes with an abundance of unique artwork, decor and charisma. Featuring our 1-strip Kährs Oak Nouveau Black wood flooring with its luxurious dark brown hue, creating a beautifully luxurious base for the charming home’s many decorative art pieces.

LOFT LOVE

Sarah

We absolutely love the look of this loft apartment. Creating a loft feeling means keeping the decor fairly minimalist, while using diverse raw materials for a textural and tactile variety. Create contrasts with a common denominator – preferably selecting materials with a slight vintage essence to them that converted old factory spaces often have to them.

The key, however, lies in the foundations- meaning the floor, the walls, the influx of natural light as well as the overall architecture and working around these to create an authentic loft feeling. Kährs Vedbo (pictured) has a natural oak colour with enhanced contrast and warmth; and golden tones from honey and ripe rye during harvest time.

We suggest combining the rustic Kährs Vedbo wood flooring with a White Brick wallpaper by Mr Perswall (D.Tales), a funky Molecular Pendant Lamp by House Doctor (The Bowery Company), and other neutral furniture and decor. Allow for pops of colour – in limited quantities – displayed in artwork, such as pop-artsy posters (Gallery One).

A great general tip for artwork is to invest in some nice frames with real glass. Light will beautifully reflect off the glass, increasing the sense of space and light while showcasing and enhancing the art displayed. You may also choose to leave your frames on the floor rather than hanging them on the walls- leaning them casually against a wall and stacked one in front of the other.

ECLECTIC HOME IN LYON

Sarah

This incredible apartment in Lyon, France features an earthy, neutral colour palette throughout the base as well as in the eclectic furnishings (well hello there gorgeous Eames armchair!) and art; and has three different patterns in the wood flooring – including a diamond, chevron and herringbone pattern – all in the same aged wood and colour. An incredibly interesting and beautiful combination that still manages to create a sense of harmony despite the many different elements.
