My Deer Art Shop, was founded by Dutch art director/interior designer Maaike Koster. Maaike has brought a sublime limited collection of typographic prints and art together for My Deer’s online Art Shop. Most prints consist of hand drawn letters and personal quotes and words. The attention paid to detail resonates through the whole collection. My Deer Art Shop only uses the finest papers and high quality materials. All the prints are limited edition, signed with handwritten numbering and printed on 250 g. fine art photo paper.
Casalinga was launched by ceramicist and industrial designer Trine Weng in 2008 and has since become an established brand in modern Danish design. The collection is driven and characterised by equal parts of functionalism, storytelling and quality. The apparent clash of contrasts, where nostalgia meets a modern Scandinavian design approach, is not an obstacle but a path to innovation that benefits the consumer in the form of new exciting and functional products. The Casalinga collection consists of harmonious hand-made porcelain vases, bowls, candlesticks, coat hooks, tableware for children, and jewellery.
It’s a grey Fall day in this part of the world which inspired me to do today’s post entirely in beautiful grey. At the end of the post you can find links to the various products and source. Have a wonderful weekend!
I am currently in the process of redecorating my home office. I have designed a large floor-to-ceiling book case which will be custom build and I also found the desk that I wanted (the Balls table in white by BertJan Pot). Now I have to get some beautiful prints to dress up the walls. These beautiful leaf prints from Danish designer Pernille Folcarelli are high on my list. Would’t it be great to combine different prints, colors and sizes?!
Finnish design company Iittala has added some beautiful new designs to their collection. The Kerros (layer or storey in Finnish) shelf by Matti Klenell is a clever member of the Iittala home range. It is designed to create extra levels of small display storage for anywhere in the home. You can use it as side table made of plywood but it can also function as a tray. Kerros is designed to move around the home and be versatile in any room. One of my favorite new products is the Nappula candelabra which works as a beautiful center piece at any table setting. It creates relaxing ambiance with either antique or tealight candles. At last I would like to highlight Leimu, a beautiful lighting piece designed by Norwegian-born Magnus Pettersen. In Leimu two completely different materials meet in a fascinating way. The strong concrete base and the the impressive glass lamp portion, inspired by traditional lampshades, make Leimu a brand new lighting fixture where sensitivity encounters strength.
Taking inspiration from shaping techniques of the acclaimed sculptor Isamu Noguchi, Swedish designer Monica Förster has created a series of pendant lights in sustainable materials that exude opalescence and lightness. The Lullaby pendants are made from stone paper with ash lamellae. The stone paper is fashioned into pentagonal, yet slightly organic-looking shapes using five slender ash lamellae. Stone paper is made from crushed limestone, which is robust and water-repellent, yet soft and sensory. In addition, stone paper has outstanding luminous qualities, which enable the Lullaby to emit a soft, muted light that communicates a cosy, natural atmosphere to the room.
