Outi Kempas, Product Owner at Finnish Design Shop, chose five products to help bring a spring atmosphere to your home. In this column, the Finnish Design Shop employees tell their favorites from the online store's selection.
1. Tekla: Bed linen
“Changing textiles is the easiest way to try new colors at home. I am especially fascinated by the olive green shade of Tekla’s quality bedding, which I combine with lighter colors.”
2. Sera Helsinki: Laine rug
“I prefer natural materials when it comes to decorating my home. Designed in Finland and hand-woven in Ethiopia, the Laine wool rug by Sera Helsinki feels soft underfoot and lasts both time and use.”
3. Marimekko: Oiva teapot
“I love the round form of the Oiva tableware designed by Sami Ruotsalainen! The Oiva teapot's new dark green shade and classic Tiiliskivi pattern are likely to brighten up an otherwise neutral table setting.”
Artek: 153A bench
“Alvar Aalto's clear-lined 153A bench delights with its versatility. The airy classic is often used in the hallway, but it also serves as a beautiful side table in the living area and as a place for plants and books.”
Muuto: Kink vase
“I like the minimalist design and beautiful sandy color of the Kink vase by the Danish brand Muuto. A bouquet of Baby's breath looks lovely in this handmade porcelain vase.”
