Lab. is a lovely boutique from France (but shipping world wide!) selling an exclusive collection of household linen & furniture. All their items are made in France with the greatest care. This process allows Lab. to propose custom-made service with options on size or fabric combinations. Great attention is paid to the solidity and the softness of their designs.

The fabrics used are from high end labels such a Liberty from London, Kvadrat and A.P.C. Lab.: “Our collection is entirely made in France, not out of national pride but to achieve a good quality while limiting energy & material waste.
It enables us to make unique styles on demand.”

a danish family home

This the home of Betina Stampe, founder of Danish label Bloomingville. Betina share this beautiful house with her husband and their four daughter. The old building, constructed in 193,5 has white walls and large windows which create an abundance of light. Betina loves a mix of classic furniture combined with lots of goodies from Bloomingville. She often changes the look of her home with small articles like cushions, throws and so forth, depending her on mood and the time of year.

diy: making furniture from pallets

palletaarsland.jpg

Used shipping pallets are great to use for a design DIY project. They are inexpensive, rustic looking and using reclaimed wood/products is evironmental friendly. You can paint them (or not) and pile them up with some lovely cushions to create a sofa. But there is a lot more you can do. Here are some of the best pallet projects that I found online.
