One IKEA sofa - two looks!


It´s fun how easily you can change the look and style in a room just by changing the covers of your sofa! Bemz creates custom sewn design covers in hundreds of high-end fabrics so you can update your IKEA sofa, armchairs, chairs and more by changing the cover. This way you can make your furniture reflect your personal style better, but also find the perfect color for your home. A good idea if you want a little makeover in your living room for example. All Bemz products are btw machine washable and the covers are sewn in Europe. Big thumbs up for that!

As you might remember, I had a white Söderhamn sofa in our living room, but now I have ordered two different covers from Bemz for our sofa. The first one is a regular fit in the fabric: Linara Peach Skin – Spice. This is a luxe 100% linen and cotton blend with an ultra soft, brushed peach-skin finish. And the warm brown color is a perfect fit for our living room I think! The room suddenly became a lot more cosy and inviting. Do you like it too?

Linara Peach Skin - Spice.

The other cover is quite different in style because of it is loose fit. I´ve chosen the high quality 100% linen “Brera Lino” from Designers Guild in the color Natural because I´m thinking this cover will be perfect for spring and summer.

As you can see the two different covers change the look quite a lot! Do you have a favorite?

New Limited Edition PH 3/2 Table lamp_Louis Poulsen

The Louis Poulsen PH 3/2 table lamp designed by Poul Henningsen has always been special to me. But now with the limited edition of the PH 3/2 table lamp, it got beyond special. For this photoshoot, I got to borrow one of these lamps, and now that I have seen it in real life I know that this will be my very own Christmas gift.

The lamp can be described in one word –  classic. With its Italian mouth-blown amber colored glass and brushed brass frame, I just know that this is a lamp I will grow old with. And as time will pass, the brass frame will acquire a beautiful, unique patina.

But design aside, the lamp creates a magnificent light. When I have turned it on in the evening, the lamp gives the room a calming atmosphere with its softly diffused lightning.

Lastly, a nice little detail I have to add is the through-switch located on the stem of the base (see photo below). No cheap plastic to be found here *smile*.

So if this lamp appeals to you as well, you should be aware that it is a limited edition and will only be available from the 1st of October to 31rd of December 2018. You can shop it here.

Will it be on your Christmas wishlist?

Henningsen’s initials are beautifully engraved beneath the switch.

The lamp looks just as good when it is switched off as you can see below.

Autumn hues


Here is a little sneak peek of what I´ve been working on in my studio today… One out of many stylings I´ve been doing this week, actually! Some of them at home and some here in my studio.
I´m looking forward sharing some of them with you later here on my blog!

Notice the beautiful coffee pot and glass table in my studio. Both second-hand finds I got for a very good price! If you missed my other second-hand finds this Autumn, you can check them out here.

Second-hand treasures

I love second-hand stores and the search for cheap beautiful treasures for my home! And I´m lucky to have a great second-hand shop in my neighbourhood where I always find something nice, the prices there are also ridiculously low. What I ´m searching for these days are ceramics and pottery, and I´ve found a lot of beauties lately. Let me share a few of them with you and show you how nice it looks when you mix old treasures with new. I think it´s an great and afforable way to create a cool style + add more personality to the home. You also get unique items which is a good thing these days where everyone has the same products… : )

Photo 1:
– One of my favorite; The tea pot from the Norwegian A/S Egersunds Fayancefabriks Co. (made between 1963-69). What I paid: 25 NOK! ( I also bought a matching cream mug that´s not in the pictures 10 NOK)
– The white little vase (as I have used as a tea light holder) was only 10 NOK
– The tall “bottle” on the table was also only 15 NOK! Perfect as a vase or just a sculpure.

Photo 2/3: Another find are two of these brown cream jugs(?) as I here use as a vase and a sculpure (below). I love its shape and colors! I actually met an old lady in the second-hand store when I bought these, that told me that they are very old. Maybe you have more information about this mug? I would love to know! Price: 15 NOK pr. mug.

Great finds, right?

Do you like second-hand stores? What do you usually look for?

JW Table by Montana


Let me introduce you to the new JW Table by Montana – a beautiful, timeless and minimalistic table that is available in both round and square and in many sizes and finishes.

As you can see I´ve had the pleasure of taking some pictures of the round JW Table in black oak here in my home. Seeing the table in real life made me like it even more – what a beauty! The table top has the most beautiful finish and I love its light, delicate quality with the frame tucked under the tabletop. And with the slim triangular legs angled slightly outwards to allow good leg space. Despite the delicate, sharp look of the frame, the structure has a very a solid stability.

You can find more info about this elegant dining table designed by Jakob Wagner, and see all the finishes it´s available in over at Montana´s webside.
