Take a look at Sandbergs new trendrapport – great inspiration!
Breaking news! After the success with Ilse Crawfords limited collection for Ikea they now follow up with the Dutch designer Piet Hein Eek who´s known for his work with scrapwood. Hopefully we will see some clever pieces that takes care of some more wastematerial but we will have to wait for until 2017 to see the collection JASSA!

We are entering October this week and are perhaps spending more time inside than outside now so it might be time to get into autumn mood interior wise as well. These two photos from Bent Hansen and their new pillow collection got me kickstarted this week.

The beautiful Bai collection by Lyndon Neri and Rossana Hu is the result of a long collaboration with Parachilna. The communication started back in 2013, when Parachilna wanted an updated version of the classical Chinese lantern. Now, two years later, paper has become blown-glass, wires have become solid metal, finished in aged bronze. A perfect combination of craftsmanship and contemporary design.
A lot of people are afraid of using color in their bathrooms thinking they will grow tired of it after a few years. Right – I´m a strong believer in long lasting kitchens and bathrooms since it´s a big investment, but thinking color doesn´t have to mean yellow and red. Think soft hues like grey, aqua or sand and paint the walls where it´s not necessary to tile, that too softens the room. For example – keep the color scheme simple with different shades of grey (but not fifty! :-D) and add some wood with the crisp white and voilá – you have a bathroom that will last and that won´t feel sterile like the ones in all white!
The white tiling half way up the walls makes it possible to use a darker color
Here´s a softer grey where a white piece of wall make the room crisp
I was invited for a nice lunch at Senab today where the Swedish/Danish brand Friends & Founders told us about the journey and showed their collection. It´s really hard to pick a favourite but it might be the planter Castle that are uniquely (sand-)casted by hand. Comes in either raw or black aluminium.
For you who don´t follow me on Instagram and missed my report after midnight when the pressrelease came: Barber Osgerby who I am a huge fan of will be Guest of Honour at Stockholm Furniture Fair 2016! Hurra!
