Skagerak Furniture Nominated For 5 German Design Awards!

Do you know about Skagerak? If you live in Europe, I'm sure you've heard of them by now as they are making quite a big splash in the world of design over here. They're a family-owned Danish brand that designs and makes furniture for the home and patio along with beautiful interiors objects.

I have their DO Shelf System in my home and just love it - my guests always comment on how good looking my bookcase is. When I had my own decor8 booth earlier this year at the imm Cologne, I used their Vivlio Shelves in blue which my visitors loved along with many of their accessories that I styled into the rooms I'd created there. As a fan of this brand, I was excited to read this morning that they've been nominated for 5 German Design Awards! What a high honor this is.

Would you like to see some of my favorite pieces styled and arranged in beautiful spaces this morning? Then you can also dream alongside of me to own a cottage by the sea outfitted with these lovely things? I love their STORIES catalog, photographed on the island of Gotland in Sweden. I was in Gotland a year ago for midsommer and loved it (remember?) so this catalog really touched my heart since that was such a special place for me.

Honestly, their collection is tops in my book. One of my dearest friends Sania Pell, a Creative Director and Stylist based in London, frequently styles campaigns for companies (like Kvadrat) but also is a regular contributor to Elle Decoration UK and I'll never forget a term she coined called "Scandinese". It's Scandinavian meets Japanese style and when I see Skagerak, I see Scandinese so clearly. It really does feel like the perfect edit. East meets West.

In German-speaking Europe, please contact Morten and Tinna Pedersen from Agentur Pedersen for more information, or to shop online try my friends at LYS Vintage in Hamburg or Connox in Hannover.

Have a lovely day, I'll be back with a home tour in Paris!
