    4 Finnish & Swedish Brands Every Scandinavian Design Lover Should Know

     

    You’ve no doubt heard of hygge, the Danish concept that denotes comfortable living and cozy quarters. Its associated design sensibility has permeated modern decor, and with good reason; interior designers and design aficionados alike appreciate the clean minimalism and natural materials that the aesthetic promises. But don't mistake simplicity for lack of imagination. Scandinavian design, since its emergence in the early 20th century, has long married form and function.

  3. Our ICFF 2022 Roundup

    Our ICFF 2022 Roundup

    It's been a few years since we've walked the rows of the Javits Center, croissant in hand, taking in all of the booths, walking 19,000 steps, and jaunting around SoHo on the hunt for showrooms and brands that excite us. But just last week, a select crew took to the infamous International Contemporary Furniture Fair (or ICFF for short) to scout all things new.

    And now we're back and here on the journal to share our favorite installations, experiences, and pieces. We hope you get a dose of creative inspiration from NYC design week, just like we did.

    After these two-plus years, with Mother’s Day in less than a month, the constant shape-shifting work of parenting, motherhood, and beyond is on our minds.

  6. An Urban Wellness Hotel in London Gets A Scandinavian Remodel

    An Urban Wellness Hotel in London Gets A Scandinavian Remodel

    The always-on-the-forefront-of-cool London is known to innovate at every turn – we get a lot of inspiration from The Modern House, which shows off so much next-level design work coming out of the UK (it's the perfect site to lose yourself in on a rainy day, we're warning you).

    A project that we recently fell in love with is a hotel remodel by East London based architecture + design studio Holland Harvey. We were familiar with Holland Harvey's work after seeing this old supermarket they transformed into a homeless shelter in an attempt to destigmatize homelessness and restore dignity to those who are struggling. This new hotel is called Inhabit and Holland Harvey took a sustainable approach in the buildout by

    The New Fritz Hansen Gallery designed by Jaime Hayon is Open, and it's Breathtaking

    Just this week we got to witness a vintage Egg Chair and vintage upholstered Series 7 grace our showroom floor for our Boston Design Week event, Then & Now (head to our FB for some of our favorite shots) so we couldn't be more excited to see some more Fritz Hansen artistry with the opening of their new showroom in China.

    Located in Xi'an, it's the biggest store the brand has ever had – taking up 1,000 square-meters (around 10,800 sq ft for those meter-averse). We wanted to
