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.

We got new products from Molo Kids this week. See all items here!
Molos philosophy is: ”When children are free to express their creativity through their clothing, they gain self- esteem and confidence. We believe that the fit of the clothing should allow for freedom of movement while the rich details allow for freedom of expression. Our clothes should open a world of possibilities for the child, not limit the child.”
The latest addition to Huset is Swedish brand Mini Empire. It was founded by multidisciplinary artist Jenny von Döbeln in 2010.
The designer says “Mini Empire is all about odd animals and deep woods. The aim with Mini Empire is to create high quality products that can be appreciated by anyone, regardless of age and gender, and to bring a little fantasy and some fun into our homes.The products, mostly based on Jenny´s illustrations, is the significant style of Mini Empire.”
Mini Empire offers products for the home like trays, tea towels, cushions, wallpaper, prints and cutting boards. They are all a fun and interesting addition to your home. Some of the illustration are inspired from swedish summer, Syslöjd (sewing/crafts class in Swedish schools), old embroidery techniques and Swedish folklore.
