Lately I’ve seen this trend popping up in my Instagram feed, on Pinterest and most everywhere. It’s totally trending! Beautiful glass furniture lightly colored in new and innovative ways. It’s a great way to integrate bright colors in an otherwise sober interior. And many sporting lush, round shapes, naturally I’m a big fan of those! Have a look below and see if you feel the same?

I’ve been thinking about doing a carpet design for a long time. But I haven’t know exactly what I wanted to do.

Yesterday was the last day of the Formex fair here in Stockholm. As they say themselves, Formex is the largest meeting place for Nordic interior design.

It is mostly interior accessories, not excluding furniture but it is not the main focus, and lifestyle brands, where you can find everything from chocolate covered licorice and table ware to fashion and personal accessories. There is also a kids section, body & bath and floral & garden. Although I walked through most of the fair, I kept mostly to the interior accessories area. Read More
As promised, I wanted to show you the behind the scenes of the design process. This is step one for my design process, drawing new designs and products. I usually watch TV when I sketch. What’s important is to just let the pen do it’s work and to keep my mind occupied. This might sound a bit eccentric, but I have to keep myself from overthinking it and I find that this is a good way to do it. Do you have any tips like this that work for your creative process?

If you knew me about ten years ago, you’d probably find me going through the very darkest corners of every second hand store in Stockholm in search for that perfect String. The String shelf, that is*. Everything mid century modern was on the rise and I was looking for my holy grail: black panels with three shelves in deep, dark read teak. But as always with the holy grail there is a catch. Read More
I recently quit my job, put my home in storage and packed my bags. All for the purpose of moving to Russia. Correction, all for the purpose to move with the man I love around the planet, wherever his job may take us. And for the moment that means Russia. Read More

Inspired by Sherlock Holmes out-of-the-box-thinking and his unorthodox methods. Holmes, the coat rack, embodies the spirit of Arthur Conan Doyle´s world famous detective, with its sleek frame and quirky functions. Part of the Great detectives collection I exhibited at the Stockholm furniture fair. The hat stand doubles as a lamp that you can rotate around its own axis to direct the light where you most need it. Read More
A few years back, when I was still at school, I had been approached by a few businesses about my designs, mainly one that had been published in the pamphlet for a aluminum design competition. This was long before I had my own company. The design they were interested in was a good looking power strip in aluminum with a innovative on/off-function. The ones who contacted me wondered if I could produce it, and they would buy it and sell it. Read More
