Danish company H. Skjalm P. started as a retail store in the centre of Copenhagen in 1953 by Hagbarth Skjalm Petersen and his wife Lisbeth Westergaard. Since then it has grown into reputable design brand with new collections twice a year, showcased at both local and international design fairs. The company's founding philosophy, which centres around innovative design, natural materials and a distinctive Scandinavian look, is very much evident today. Here is a peek at their latest collection for Autumn/Winter 16. Featuring beautiful textiles products and lighting through to plant accessories and tableware, I love the use of wood, marble and stone, ceramic, glass and metal.
NZ bedlinen and homeware company Thread Design have just launched a brand new website. Reflecting the brand's clean and stylish aesthetic, the site is easy to navigate, making shopping online a breeze. In addition to new products and imagery, you'll find some wonderful new features like the Instashop which allows you to easily 'shop the look' from the Thread Design Instagram page. Here are a few of my picks.
The new Vipp table has just been released and I love its clean, sleek look. Made with steel profiles and cast aluminium corners, the frame elegantly carries the tabletop, giving it a floating expression. Despite its delicate appearance, the six mm. thin ceramic tabletop is highly durable, resistant to liquids and hard objects. Available in two sizes, like all Vipp products it is made to withstand the test of time in both function and aesthetics.
