{ minuscule }

By Brit

Republic of Fritz Hansen launches minuscule; a formal chair and table designed for an informal setting by the award winning Danish designer Cecilie Manz. The name minuscule represents the informal and understated style that the Scandinavians are truly famous for; why spell it out in capitals when discrete simplicity makes a clear statement.

{ pop-up }

By Brit

Today was the opening of the pop-up store of La Maison d’Anna G. et Le REpèRe des BeletTes. This secret and ephemeral shop is hidden in the Marais and was a must see spot during my lunch break. A lot of wonderful things for your home are perfectly arranged in a nice setting: hard to resist against lovely porcelain phosphors, wooden bowls or one of the beautiful linen cushions and so much more. If you like the pure and simple Scandinavian design and are looking for Christmas gifts with that ‘special something’, this is for you ! So if you happen to be in Paris right now, this is a great opportunity to see the collections from both shops.
Pop-up store: 4 rue Pastourelle, Paris 3°.
The store will be open every day from 10am to 7pm, from Wednesday 21st to Sunday 25th of November.

{ bonjour friday }

By Brit

I came across this wonderful looking Swedish book Naturlig inredning by Anna Örnberg and already fell in love even if I only saw a few pages. I love all things made with natural materials. I cannot leave a beach without collecting driftwood and seashells and I am always gathering treasures like birchbark, acorns, leaves… in the woods. It’s so lovely to create great decoration objects with the beauty and bounty of Mother Nature. So I am sure this book is a great source of inspiration. I already checked if it’s available at Amazon or The Book Depository, but unfortunately without success. Does anybody know a website that ships internationally ?  Have a great weekend !

{ bonjour friday }

During my stay in Copenhagen, I bought one of the famous wooden ducklings of Hans Bølling. The Ducks are reminiscent of Danish spring, with mother ducks waltzing proudly around Copenhagen with their young ducklings. One particular spring in 1959 branded this image into the minds of the Danish population, as during the busy days in Frederiksberg a policeman found the time to stop the traffic in order to let a young Duck family pass. It was an extraordinary and meaningful event to the by passers to the point that all the newspapers published a famous photograph of the ducks. This captured moment encapsulates the Danish attention to nature and detail and the ability to appreciate small everyday miracles. Inspired by the charming Duck family, Hans Bølling hence designed a pair of small wooden Duck figures, whose souls carry the essence of peaceful and harmonious Danish spring.
