The new addition to Broste Copenhagen’s collection of upholstered furniture is called Ocean.

Ocean is a flexible sofa based on a simple design defined by clean lines and a classic expression, yet full of character. It is inspired by the fascinating ocean and its unpredictability.

Moreover, this fabric is water repellent, has a high durability with 100.000 Martindale. Combining these strong and contrasting fabrics creates a unique and interesting expression without compromising comfort

The Classic Turntable is Inspiration for Pick-Up Table

The inspiration for the new table from Lind DNA is obvious. Hence the name Pick-Up. The table is designed by Preben Lind with multifunctionality and sustainability in mind.

Recycled leather is a key element in Lind DNA’s design and there is a reversible, recycled leather on the Pick-Up table top. “The leather on the table has different colors on each side, so you can change the table’s expression just by turning the top sheet,” Preben Lind explains. “It is available in several color combinations: black / red, black / brown or anthracite / light grey and the jewel in the middle is available in aluminum or brass. So, there is ample opportunity to customize the table to fit your interior”.

The process from idea to development of finished product takes place in-house at Lind DNA in Aarhus, in close consultation with several parts of the organization from sketches, prototype production with own blacksmiths to final product. Preben Lind as central idea man.

“The production of the finished product is optimized from an environmental and sustainable perspective. The leather is Oeko-Tex certified, not only the material itself but also on the coloring, and the frame on the table is powder coated”, Preben Lind explains. ” Powder coating is an environmentally friendly and sustainable solution because the powder that does not adhere to the table frame can be reused, and the process of surface treatment takes place completely without solvents. In addition, powder coating gives a less hazardous working environment, since no dangerous substances are discharged or leave environmentally hazardous waste”, Preben Lind concludes.

Pick Up Jewel is available in two sizes RRP. £238 small and £305 large.

Height of both tables, floor to tabletop (not handle): 50 cm.

Aluminium top plate: 4 mm thick, D 38 cm or D 48 cm, powder coated, black

Frame and foot are powder coated steel. Colour: Black

The jewel is Ø 4 cm aluminum or brass.

The reversible top is Oeko-Tex certified recycled leather, consisting of 80% vegetable tanned core leather and 20% natural rubber from trees.

Shutters can have a Dramatic Effect on your Interior

Shutters bring something to a room that other window treatments can’t. Sleek and solid, they can turn any window into an architectural feature. With some careful planning, a white wooden shutter can transform even the plainest room into an elegant, resolved grown-up space.

 

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

Shutters are the perfect solution for a bath or shower room. The neat profile can sit into a window frame leaving more space in these often-small rooms. Luxaflex Faux Wood shutters are made from moisture resistant material so cantolerate the damp environment and will stay looking fresh and new for longer. The same goes for kitchens which often gets steamed up.

If you work from home as many of us do these days using wooden shutters as dividers to shut off your working space can help achieve calm in a studious office space and hide any clutter from un expected guests.

Made to measure shutters can be used for awkward shaped windows or make plain boring windows more exciting.

Luxaflex Shutters are sold by the meter starting from £268 per square metre for Faux Wood (fitting is not included).
