Yesterday was auction day for a sofa that I fell head over heels in love with a week ago. I decided to buy it no matter what, even if we have absolutely no space to put an extra sofa in the house. I would just have had to find a way to work it out. But in the end, just minutes away from closing time, someone raised the bid so much so that I had to give up. I guess you can’t pay whatever amount for passion when you have nowhere to put it….but today I can´t stop thinking about it. A dark grey wall behind it….Am I exaggerating or is it not absolutely wonderful?
Completely obsessed with rugs like these at the moment. It seems like there is a wind blowing of hemp rugs, straw hats, baskets and bags and I love it. The mood board of hats is borrowed from Frida of Trendenser and as it was so well put together it seemed useless to make one of my own.

Unfortunately there will be no Milan for me but the reports are flying in and I´m really looking forward to seeing all the news. One love already found is the Coat Rack Bench for Gebreuder Thonet Vienna, designed by talented trio Front. As I´m crazy about benches of all sorts and especially ones in bent wood style – this is definitely something to put on the wishlist. The question is now, what will the price tag say?
You can find them here.
The Bow Chair by Lisa Hilland for Gemla was one of last year´s favorites at Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair so I was not at all disappointed when seeing another family member in the bentwood Bow Sofa presented this year. I absolutely love it (please ignore the yellow tone of my instagram & see ash and organically tanned leather with bronze detailing). What do you think, do you like it?
