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

Note to editors

Craftmanship and the art of creation is the focal point of LIND DNA. 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.

 We design with respect for the materials we handpick. The bedrock of most of our designs is recycled leather, certified by OEKO-TEX®. Our leather is sourced from the surplus production of furniture, bags and shoes. It is core leather that is granulated and mixed with natural rubber from trees. The resulting quality consists of 80% real leather and 20% natural rubber from trees and is therefore durable and dirt resistant.

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.
