Thomas Bernstrand är så otroligt begåvad och visar i år upp många fina nyheter på möbelmässan. Väldigt välförtjänt avslöjades det nyss att han vinner Forms +1 award för sin fina hylla "Ivy" för Swedese. Grattis!
Thomas Bernstrand is so amazingly talented and shows many good news at the furniture fair this year. Very well deserved it was just revealed just that he wins Forms +1 award for his fine bookshelf "Ivy" for Swedese. Congratulations!
Last week at Stockholm Fashion Week, I went on quite a few shows and was inspired by the fabrics and materials on the catwalk. Therefore, I was happy when I saw Anya Sebtons classic chair Millibar from Lammhults in new "clothes", I really like the fashionfeel with the rough yet soft cushion against the tight seat.

HAY visade som vanligt väldigt fina nya möbler och textilier på mässan, några av mina favoriter var bara prototyper som det inte finns pressbilder på ännu men på min facebooksida visar jag mina snapshots.
HAY showed very nice furniture and textiles at the fair, some of my favorites were just prototypes that there is no press pictures of yet, but on my facebook page I will show my snapshots.
Blombord verkar vara grejen i år. Hos många tillverkare såg man olika varianter, Offecct hade gjort flera olika fina möbler för växter bl.a. de här av Front och Claesson Koivisto Rune.
Flower Tables seems to be the thing this year. Many manufacturers had different variations and Offecct has several new nice furnitures for plants including these designed by Front and Claesson Koivisto Rune.
I went to the press preview at NK Interior this morning and I must say that Kadi Harjak is doing a fantastic job for the design Stockholm. Right now the store filled to the brim with unique designer furniture from Established & Sons, Sé, Moroso, Molteni & C, BD Barcelona and others. A lot of the furnitures are specially borrowed just for this week and both this morning and tonight Arik Levy , Sebastian Wrong and Jaime Hayon will attend. This is not an easy thing to arrange in Stockholm. Do not miss to go up to NK Interior this week, the exhibition is open to the public.
The question everyone asks each other this week is "what do you think was the best at the fair "? I think that very much was really nice, it's a fun fair. A lot of new furniture and many parties every night testify that the boom is back in the furniture business. If I only get to choose one favourite from the fair, I say Mats Broberg and Johan Ridderstråhles very nice series of tables "Tati" (and Eva Lilja Löwenhielms glass cubes) for Asplund. Stay tuned for more news during the week..

I could not go to Swedish Elle Decorations pressevent this morning, but I just bought lunch and the latest issue of the magazine at Ica. There they reveal all the winners. My favorite winners are: "This year's Swedish design" to talented Claesson Koivisto Rune. "This year's rising stars" to my favorites, Form Us With Love. "This year's textile", stylish Karl, Coco and Paco by Pia Wallén, and both "Best outdoor furniture" and "Best lamp" to the supertalanted TAF. Congratulations, you all deserved it!
