Delightful details for your summerhouse decor – introducing 7 products for the modern cottage

Make long weekends and holidays spent at the lodge feel extra cozy by updating your summerhouse with fresh details. We chose seven products to make days at the cabin even more memorable! 

Matri's Linnea linen duvet covers on a bed.
Matri's Linnea linen duvet covers are available in multiple shades. The beautiful Lempi headboard is also by Matri.

1. Matri: Linnea linen duvet cover

It just might be that Matri's Linnea linen duvet covers were specially designed for dusky summer nights: the high-quality linen feels cool and dry against the skin after days in the sun but keeps you cozy and warm as rainy afternoons turn into chilly nights. The long-lasting linen becomes even more luxuriously soft as it matures, with tiny little wrinkles adding character.

The Kink vase designed for Muuto by Earnest Studio combines the tactility of traditional ceramics with a fresh new form.

2. Muuto: Kink vase

Muuto's Kink vase features a quirky, modern form perfect for bouquets of wildflowers. Designed by Earnest studio, the one of a kind vase is also a fun stand-alone decor element and its beautiful sky blue hue brightens up even the cloudier days.

Menu's nude colored Bottle Grinder as a part of the table setting.
The powerful ceramic grinding mechanism of Menu's Bottle Grinders makes it possible to crush even nuts and dried berries.

3. Menu: Bottle Grinder set

The summer house dining room is never in one place: breakfast is casually enjoyed in bed, the lunch at the beach, dinner is prepared by the fire, and evening snacks are served by the table, gazing at the slowly setting sun. Designed by Norm Architects, Kasper Rønn and Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen, the Bottle Grinder spice mills are easy to carry from one delicious adventure to another and their sweet summer shade makes them even more enjoyable.

Ferm Living's Way cushion.
Ferm Living's Way cushion carries an easy-going and fresh look that fits the summer house mood effortlessly.

4. Ferm Living: Way cushion

Don't be fooled by the soft cotton-like feel of Ferm Living's Way cushion: it is in fact made from recycled plastic bottles! The crisp graphic print and the asymmetric fringes of the Way cushion lend the lodge a refreshing, relaxed feel but it is also suitable for the garden or terrace, or a quick nap on the beach.

The Organic Company's Big Waffle giant towel hung on a fence.
Big Waffle giant towel by The Organic Company is available in various summery sorbet shades.

5. The Organic Company: Big Waffle giant towel

Versatility truly is a virtue at the summer house. Wrapping yourself into The Organic Company's Big Waffle giant towel is the perfect finish for a dip in the lake or the sauna, but the lightweight towel can also be used as a fun throw. Or why not take it with you on a picnic!

Lastu baskets by Verso Design.
The beautiful Lastu baskets by Verso design are crafted by hand.

6. Verso Design: Lastu baskets

What is the one thing that connects berry picking at the forest, chopping wood for the sauna, and enjoying sandwiches wrapped in wax paper on a picnic? A traditional wicker basket of course! Verso Design's versatile Lastu collection gives the traditional wicker basket a modern, refined look and features a design for every need from picking mushrooms to storing household items.

Santa & Cole's Cestita Batería table lamp on a shelf.
A warm cherry wood frame and the opal glass shade make Santa & Cole's Cestita lamp an eye-catching decor element. The classic String Pocket shelves give the cabin a modern touch.

7. Santa & Cole: Cestita Batería table lamp

Fixed lighting might not be sufficient for the unique needs of life in the lodge: the late-night Uno tournaments on the terrace, midnight trips to the outhouse, and rainy days spent under the covers binging on books all require clever, transportable extra light. The flickering glow of a flashlight has character, but Santa & Cole's Cestita Batería lamp with a rechargeable battery is heaps more practical, not to mention beautiful.
