Launched in September last year, Hem which is Swedish for "Home" offers high-end furniture with a focus on easy assembly and elegant, affordable design. A collaborative project, you may recognise the designs of the Finnish design firm formerly known as One Nordic that I've featured on the blog before. Following Hem on Instagram since its launch, I've become a huge fan. Their belief that great design shouldn't cost a fortune rings true to their products in every sense, and my heart beats faster every time they post a new photo!
Expanding its offerings with the introduction of seven new collections debuting at the international interiors show in Cologne, the furniture includes new stools, tables, sofas and shelving systems. I'm positively giddy! All designed for easy assembly, many requiring no tools, Hem also offers digital customisation so you can add personal design touches to the furniture, whether it’s the dimensions, colour, or arrangement of shelves.
The Key Coffee Table by GamFratesi and Pal Bar Stools by Hallgeir Homstvedt are high on my wishlist!
Here are some of favourites from their initial debut collection, including the gorgeous Kuu Lamp by Kerstin Sylwan & Jenny Stefansdotter (formerly of One Nordic), and Bento tables and chairs by Form Us With Love. In addition to furniture and lighting, Hem also offer a range of homeware accessories including rugs, cushions, wall hooks and more.
Currently shipping to over 30 countries from their online store, Hem have a retail store in Hamburg and another opening soon in Berlin as well as retail stockists. Fingers crossed they make there way to our shores soon!
