Working from Home

A lot of us now work from home, even if it is only a few days a week, and it is not always possible to have a designated room for working so it is important that our work stations fit in with the rest of the décor. Broste Copenhagen have launched a couple of desk/tables, which look stylish anywhere and do not take up a lot of room.

                     

 

The Fredo table in Simply Black steel has a clever dropped shelf the whole length of the back, perfect for storing books, or concealing unwanted and unsightly wires. It is compact only 38 cm wide so easy to fit into a small space, and it looks stylish anywhere. Retails at £791.70

              

 

The Kamille table has a black glass top and a steel shelf below handy for papers and books. Again, it is compact, only 40 cm wide and will look smart in any room.

When you no longer want to use the tables as desks, they become decorative tables for your favourite vases and accessories. Retails at £791.70

Furniture Designed with the Environment in Mind

     

The Small Furniture range from LIND DNA is designed with minimalism, functionality and durable materials in mind. “When design our furniture, we cut out the “fuss” and keep it simple – because we wholeheartedly believe that simplicity is more,” says Preben Lind owner and designer. The LIND DNA furniture range is inspired by Nordic trends but is yet multicultural. The furniture is creative, yet classic, and fits into any setting in their own stylish way.

The BENCH from LIND DNA is inspired by minimalistic, Scandinavian interior design. Simple, intuitive and beautiful. The bench comes in two sizes, small enough to be placed anywhere in your home. In the entrance, at the end of your bed or simply as a statement piece to stand alone.

The reversible, hand-stitched cushion is made of recycled leather on one side, and European wool on the other side. So, you can easily change the expression of your bench to fit your mood and décor. The cushion is attached to the steel frame by two jewels made of aluminium or brass.

BENCH is available in two lengths, with cushions in two different colours and with jewels in either aluminium or brass. Small bench L 72cm Retails at £499. Large bench L112 cm retails at £649.00

Note to editors

Lind DNA is all about craftsmanship and the art of creation. Whenever possible, we insist on our own, local production in Denmark. First of all, local production gives us the opportunity to be hands-on throughout the entire process and to secure continuously high manufacturing standards. Secondly, we care deeply about sustainability and our own production enables us to limit our footprint on the environment. Our designs are developed in-house and all steps of the process are being followed very closely – from initial idea, to production and final shipment to our customers. We’re aiming to create subtle designs with zero waste, in a form that involves reusing resources to decrease the total environmental impact

From the very beginning in 2013, we have been environmentally responsible. Our materials are responsibly sourced, and we continuously refine our waste management at our production facilities in Aarhus, Denmark. Our zero-waste strategy is based on a waste prevention policy, proactive reuse and optimization of separate collection of waste to guarantee quality recycling. Our main production goal is to eliminate toxic waste that poses a threat to the environment.

RUG STARS

 

A rug has the power to add colour to your home and tie everything together. Rugs can serve a variety of purposes; delineating a space, manipulating the size of the room, accent the room’s existing colour scheme and add warmth.

                      

From utilising their primary attribute to adding warmth to the more creative usage when highlighting features or manipulating the size of a room, rugs from Broste Copenhagen are eye-catching and inviting. Whether you are after a minimalistic addition, an unusual shape or a rustic piece with a knotted fringe, you will find a wide variety of patterns, colours and textures.

Their rugs also come in a variety of fabrics from 100% wool, cotton, viscose/cotton, leather/cotton and other mixtures.

Their MIRA rugs are made from recycled plastic bottles, involving an innovative process that breaks down the bottles into fine fibres spun into yarn. These can be used outside.

Prices depend on size and material.

Rosamund Coady

Rosamund Coady
is showing at MADE LONDON – Marylebone The Design and Craft Fair
Stand 86 in the Soane Hall

 

At this year’s craft event, Made Marylebone, potter Rosamund Coady is exhibiting an installation of tea-cups inspired by Japanese craft, design and visual sensibilities. Rosamund says: “I create my work round a theme, researching a topic in depth, then using my sense of curiosity, I work with the clay to lead me towards a new story”.

Rosamund studied at Camberwell Art School. Whilst her kids were growing up she did not work professionally, although she would show among friends After a gap of 35 years, she attended a class organised by potter Daphne Carnegie. “It felt so natural to be making pieces from clay again, and I overcame technical difficulties and learnt to mix up my own glazes. I was finally making pieces I was happy with. When I made the decision to set up my own studio, my confidence began to build, and I started showing and selling my work, developing a small and loyal clientele” Rosamund explains.

Rosamund now participates in local craft fairs and more recently set up her own solo shows in venues in London.

You can buy her lovely pottery from  www.giftedlocal.com  and, of course, at Made London.

MADE LONDON – Marylebone the Design and Craft Fair

is open 24 -27 October, 10.30 – 5 PM

You can’t go wrong with Stripes

It might be hard to decide kind of window dressing you want. There are various values of plains and patterns, but we can perhaps all agree on one thing; the power of stripes. They work across all periods and properties, and add instant depth and excitement to a scheme. The optical effects they bring can magically transform a room’s sense of proportion.

Luxaflex® has a superb range of blinds that will help you decide what is just right for your home.

These Luxaflex® Pirouette® Shades provides beautiful blinds for your windows, the construction with a single sheer and soft fabric vanes provides a clear view to the outside and the product design allows for unobstructed view- through, while maintaining a discreet level of privacy inside. Distinctive ambience and privacy control in one

Vertical stripes on blinds can enhance the height of your windows making the most of a design feature such as floor-to-ceiling windows and doors.  Mixing striped roller blinds with solid coloured blinds is a great way to break up very long expanses; three solid blinds here could feel too blocky, three striped blinds too busy. This combination is unexpected and confident whilst also solving a design conundrum.

These Luxaflex® Twist® blinds makes this bedroom a tranquil and peaceful place to retire to after a hectic day. Luxaflex® Twist® Shades are available in different vane widths and  in a wide range of colours and fabrics, from bold black to subtle neutrals and metallic; from sheer to opaque – a look for every décor. Twist® Shades also look stunning in rooms with extra-large windows creating a real style statement with stunning light control. Fully adjustable: the front and reverse sides of the fabric vanes can be moved into any position for perfect light control.

MOON TABLE

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For their latest addition to their furniture range, the Moon Table, Broste Copenhagen has teamed up with the acknowledged Danish designer Maria Berntsen. The Copenhagen-based designer has had her own practice focusing on architecture and design since 1992.

The exclusive collaboration between Maria Berntsen and Broste Copenhagen is all about individuality and challenging new, modern design in a Nordic context. Based on a shared philosophy, they have developed and designed these magnificent pieces that invite you to participate in the design process by giving you the opportunity to change certain parts of the furniture according to your functional or visual preference.

The Moon table is designed with focus on stability, functionality, and character, which are clearly expressed through timeless design and quality materials. There are four characterful pieces: two table top designs; a wooden and a laminate option, a static frame, and a set of trestles. The trestles are based on the frame’s construction, ensuring the same level of stability via a convenient three-piece solution.

Combine the static frame with your preferred table top design to create a minimalist, stationary dinner table solution, or utilize the mobility provided by the trestles to quickly and conveniently set up some extra dinner seats or additional office workspace.

Introducing a dinner table came as a natural extension of Broste Copenhagen’s existing collections, and the table was designed to match their aesthetics as well as the height of their chairs.

Recommended retail prices as follows:

Trestles £ 217.50

Base £712.00

Wood top £1267.00

Laminate top £752.00

CUT AND SERVE

This versatile collection of cutting boards from LIND DNA look like wood but are made from compact laminate, a very strong and durable material consisting of multiple kraft paper layers pressed together with resin from trees. They are extremely thin, lightweight, easy to clean and even dishwasher safe.

The boards are available in two colours Ash and Walnut and in four shapes square, rectangular, circle and curve. They are approved for food so ideal for serving tapas, and cold-cuts.

All boards are heat resistant up to 200 C so can also be used as trivets for hot pots and pans.

Price from £26.00
