Erik Hjärfors is a lumberjack.
For real. He takes care of timber from the growing trees in his own forest to making timber houses like the one behind him in the picture.
The very small chainsaw that he holds in his hand I will come back to soon. Very handy as you can see.
Erik and his wife Johanna run the Lövsjö Loghouse store in the midst of Småland, Sweden. Erik&I have worked on many interior projects together and he has custom made wonderful pieces of furniture for my clients.
We have also exhibited together at fairs such as Formex in Stockholm.
In the tv show Husräddarna that starts on TV3 the 22nd of May we have worked together successfully once again. I will tell you more about that as soon as we get going to the premiere of the awaited tv show. Right now I can show you my favorites from the Lövsjö Loghouse store.
This log in an angle to sit in, is in my world of aesthetics so beautiful and perfectly shaped and natural it makes me happy just to see it. Yes ... I know... I get this exaggerated, but I mean it.
It is sooooooo wabi sabi
Wood can be art.
The perfect shape to sit in. The black wooden floors are handmade by axe. Thats why the surface is so unevenly wonderful.
The table is a plant and a table at the same time. Are you with me ?
Stools in storage.
Hand made, rustic, durable tables that lasts for a lifetime is one of the types of furniture that you can expect to find at Lövsjö Loghouse.
A Teepee lamp.
The Lövsjö Loghouse store is set in a old factory setting.
My favorite Jessika Jarl photo is here a textile hanging on the wall. The pendant lamp is my Soomkai that you find through Watt&Veke retailers in Sweden, Norway, Finland and Germany.
