This year the Stockholm Furniture Fair was just incredible. I’m still so inspired with all the wonderful designs I saw and am very excited to get some of these designs in the Huset Store.
One of my favorite product from the whole show was this Bake Me A Cake light by Morten and Jonas for Nothern Lighting, inspired by the classic cartoon ruse of baking a file into a cake to help prisoners escape. It is made by inmates of a Norwegian prison near Bergen, as part of a project which aims create a high quality products within Norwegian prisons while providing meaningful activities to build confidence and challenge the mindsets and behaviors of the inmates.
One of my favorite stands at the fair surely had to be the HAY …

The world-famous designer Jasper Morrison has always been fascinated by Danish design. His work has often been described as more Scandinavian than British in spirit, so its no surprise to hear that he has answered a call to curate and stage an exhibition on Danish design in Copenhagen’s Design Museum in Denmark. Danish Design – I like it! is an external and international look at Danish design and the exhibition marks the change of name from the Danish Museum of Art & Design to Design museum Denmark.
“Morrison’s viewpoint has culminated in a selection of pieces that work to embody the classic and humane qualities that make up Danish design – a process he reveals to be more complex than initially anticipated. ‘It is a very condensed selection – …

When it comes to home decorating, not everyone has either the time or money to do a whole makeover of their living room.
Here are some of my favorite ways to add color to your living room and liven up the décor of your home:
1. Paint One Wall
You will find that you can add a real punch of color by painting just one wall of your living room. This will really change the focal point of the living room without becoming a major decorating project. If your room has a niche, that’s the perfect choice for extra color. Also, you can add some wallstickers to add further life.
2. Throw a Few Pillows Around
Nothing adds color like pillows strategically placed on furniture. Whether you choose solids for …
Norwegian industrial designers Vibeke Skar and Ida Noemi Vidal created these wonderful ceramic pendants that not only provide light, but convey the story of Norwegian traditions, the contrast between the cold weather and the warm clothing and homes. Story draws inspirations from the fact of going backwards to go forwards.
The lamps are called Story, which have been decorated with Norwegian patterns sandblasted into their unglazed porcelain finish. It’s a modern look on a very traditional pattern. It sheds new light upon traditional Norwegian knitting patterns on woolen sweaters and gives a new and softer expression to the cold hard porcelain surface.
According to the designers, here is Storys, story: Once upon a time there was a porcelain lamp called Story. Born in Norway between high mountains and deep fjords, it dreamed of lighting …
