Design Week in review

Time flies and it's now just over two weeks since the Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair and Stockholm Design Week closed their doors for this year. This year, almost 40,000 people visited the fair and international interest is growing year on year. More than 10,000 international visitors from some 60 countries visited the fair over the course of the week. The fair is increasingly important as a meeting place for Scandinavian design and the number of international brands keen to exhibit is increasing year by year. This is great for all those involved in the industry.

Soft pastels and dramatic blacks

I love colour and what it can do for a product, environment or interior. Many people put more thought into how they use colour at the moment. We can see in recent years how colours have become more feminine, even when it comes to colour schemes for public spaces. Where many believed pastels are too cute and should only used be for children, the sombre pastel colours are now being used in all types of environments. They feel soft, calming and make us quite simply more relaxed.

Where does it come from?

Nature attracts attention and plants and greenery have taken and take up even more space in our homes and public areas. We are also becoming more interested in the materials we find around us.
