Menu was represented at Northmodern with this minimalistic grey and spacious room. 
The way Sören Rose´s Franklin chandeleir was mass hung here made an impact on me. Love good ideas!

N O R T H M O D E R N N°1

Between Malmö,Sweden and Copenhagen in Denmarkt you find Bella Center where I will check out Northmodern. Going over the bridge from Sweden on my way to Denmark I arrive at Bella Center before I reach the center of Copenhagen.    

Northmodern is a new trade fair described on their web page as: 

Inspired by the Danish Modern movement and Copenhagen’s unique positioning as a top cultural destination, northmodern showcases the most exciting international talents working today along with the best of Scandinavian design heritage.
Uniting culture with design brands, buyers, press, retail and technology, northmodern opens up new and exciting possibilities that venture beyond the boundaries of traditional trade fairs accompanied each season by a creative exhibition.

I will just look at what talks to me and tell you about it. What I fall for in Copenhagen trade show Northmodern this week before I go up to Sthlm and look at the Stockholm furniture fair next week. 

This is N°1 North Modern, Copenhagen, Denmark in my way of seeing it :

Really like the space at Bella Center it lends itself very well to this type of interior trade show. 
This is the very first view after the entrance. Paustian holds Vitra and Artek as well as their own collection and exist in Oslo, Copenhagen and Shanghai.

Vitra treasures around a Jean Prouve table at the Paustian exhibit at Northmodern, Copenhagen.

See you soon!

The press and VIP lounge at the #northmodern Interior Fair in Copenhagen last week was created by Malene Birger. With a true eclectic cosmopolitan style along with her own brand Birger1962 this lounge is what gave me so much inspiration. From only white walls and a cement flooring Malene Birger made an interior that makes you see so much of the world with every new angle. It takes an experienced eye and knowledge and style to make so much of so little. Thank you for the inspiration Malene Birger. 

Table lamp from Birger1962

Wine and food were offered on the large wooden table with a mix of Eames and Panton chairs.

Moroccan inspiration

Black&white scented candles on the shelf all from Birger1962

Table lamp Palm Springs from Birger1962

You see one end of the room along with the high ceilings of Bella Center.

Mixing patterns

Love the wooden sculpture on the table.

Seat fit the queen of interiors

Can not have enough of the simplistic over sized canvases.

Guitar case that I wanted to steal...



In conjunction with the Formex Fair in Stockholm Granit invited to a press event. News and coming attractions in a tiled photo studio at Södermalm in a building that used to be a factory on Åsögatan. 

Some things shown here will come in later this year and some already exist in all  stores.

Artist Liselotte Watkins Falk has designed  a graphic pattern for Granit that is used on boxes intended for making the walk-in-closet smart & stylish. Off course we all see clever use of these good looking storage boxes in many places. 

Happy to see the hanging pots are coming back in many shapes like these at Granit press show. The large glass vessels are wonderful that you see on the worktop containing plants.

Colorful and tasty - made  with love and only with the best ingredients and sooooo tasty was the raw food extravaganza from Leva Kungslador 


Favorites from Granit that I keep using for work, as a gift to young and old, and for myself to keep track of storage. 

Your own print station. No need to carv in stone. You got the Granit set!

Will be on the look out for homes that I work with that need these gymnastic fun and cool looking rings. I think I have a boys room coming up that I am doing the interiors for that it will fit perfectly.Really like them!!



Just came back to Sweden after having the afternoon at North Modern in Copenhagen, Denmark.  

Lots to tell! 

Don´t have the time tonight and tomorrow I´m shooting HR,TV3 close to my hometown, which means a couple of hours drive there and back from Lund. 

Will make time to tell all here, especially show you all the pic's from Malene Birgers design of the VIP lounge at Bella Center. 

It was in my view VERY inspiring interiors. Se the pic above for now. See you soon!
