Sayonara Bitches!

Summer holidays are ON!

Pier by Mikael Axelsson


I‘m off on vacation, see you back here in a few weeks! In the meantime, get out there and enjoy the summer! Eat lots of ice cream, swim in a lake, work on your freckles, catch some Pokémon, pick blueberries, look at the clouds, have breakfast for dinner, dance until the sun comes up and discover new spots in your city. Or just do whatever you feel like. That’s what I’m gonna do. See you later!

Hope Goes Furniture

Swedish fashion brand Hope takes the step into furniture design with a chair for your clothes.

The crossovers and collabs between fashion and furniture design brands have been abundant in the recent years, yet they never cease to excite me. It’s often through collaboration and cross pollination that new and interesting expressions emerge, and the latest example of this is the chair Coat, made as a collaborative endeavor by Swedish fashion brand Hope’s founder Ann Ringstrand and carpentry studio Svenska Station.

As the name tells you, Coat isn’t just for sitting, but is also meant to store your clothes and accessories, a stylish and more practical alternative to the messy pile that many of us tend to make at the end of a long day. The chair comes with a shelf and two hooks, and an optional pocket made of leather or felt, and in three finishes, natural birch or black stained plywood and a 10 pieces splatter patterned limited edition hand painted by Ringstrand. Available in August.

Coat is Ringstrand’s first venture into furniture design, but hopefully not the last. I’d love to see a full home collection, just as Maria Soxbo at Husligheter where I first found these news. She made an interview with Ann (in Swedish), jump over there to read it!

Bedroom with Plywood Dividing Wall

Summer weekend ahead, and hopefully lots of sleeping will be done, preferably in a bedroom similar to this.

Yay! It’s Friday, and I’m looking forward to a sunny weekend spent mostly at the beach, but also a lot of sleep. Wouldn’t mind at all if my bedroom looked like this, because yes, I’m still loving the plywood trend.
