Reflections from Formex 2018

A couple of days have passed since I started this year with its first Interior Fair in Sweden – Formex. In a couple of weeks the largest Furniture Fair takes place in Scandinavia and after that Iceland is calling in March… But Milano might have to wait. I am not sure if it will be possible this year puuh.

What did I take with me this first fair in Stockholm? Of course all meetings with people I really like. Like Agnetha Törnqvist who is a stylist, designer with green fingers. Here at the fair with the most beuatiful chandeliers she has designed both for outdoors and indoors. Handmade in Småland.

And a new young designer making wall art with ceramics and pots/vases to put on the wall.

And Regrow, two Young designers discovered this innovation to prevent vaste of vegetables. How cool and creative?

And the Swedish Interior chain Granit that are going from black and white interior to add some green color in their range of interior. Hopefully they start to design more of their own.

The ceramics company Paradisverkstaden based in the island of Öland continues to evolve (with the daughters) and are still making everything by hand. Bravo!

Danish Kay Bojesen reveales that this wood monkey – their bestseller – is actually handmade in Denmark. But only the ones made from this specific wood. The others are made in Thailand.

Danish brand Kähler produce their new pots in Portugal. A bit similar to the retro styled I have here at home but I like the green theme.

And a green theme is also seen at Eva Solo that is focusing on the outdoor life more and more with garden stuff and birdfeeding houses etc. And this interesting water can…

Well, these are my favorites for now. Take care and have a lovely new week!
