Your best buddy to soak in the sun
Atelier Sandemar's charming Oona deck chair is designed to make lounging under the sun's warmth even more enjoyable. Designed by David Ericsson, the Oona outdoor chair delights with its light-hearted, even playful look, consisting of the cheerful combination of an oak frame and colorful steel handles. The armchair radiates a carefree vibe whether you place it on a balcony, patio, garden, or even indoors.
Gorgeous garden party
Arabia's sweet Garden Party plate is part of the seasonal Moomin set for summer 2023. The plate captures quite a peculiar garden party hosted by none other than the beloved Moomin family: picture Moominmamma, Moominpappa, Snorkmaiden, Moomintroll, and Stinky, alongside some wild animals that have escaped from the nearby zoo. Based on Tove Jansson’s comic “Moominvalley Turns Jungle” from 1956, Garden Party is the sixth and last part in the seasonal series depicting the Moomins in their summer activities, available for a limited time only.
Rain or shine
With The Garden: Elements and Styles even rainy days won't dampen your gardening spirit! When the weather takes an unwanted turn, this book will bring vibrant green beauty straight indoors.
Published by Phaidon, The Garden: Elements and Styles is a reissue of Dr. Toby Musgrave's beloved gardening guide, which was first published in 2020. Illustrated with large photographs, the book provides useful information, insight, and visual joy for anyone with a green thumb.
A kaleidoscope of life's wonders
Saana ja Olli's spacious cosmetic bag, which can hold almost a whole life, is decorated with a charming Kaukana kotoa design that represents almost a whole life. The name Kaukana kotoa translates to “far from home”, and the pattern is formed like a patchwork, featuring a volcano, a heart, a rose, birds, fruit, and human figures, for example. What's the first thing that catches your eye?
The Double Bubble outdoor lamp, or Tupla Kupla as the luminaire is known in Finland, is a weather-proof version of Eero Aarnio's distinctive lighting design introduced originally in 2003. Like its indoor sibling, the Double Bubble outdoor luminaire is fitted with three light sources to ensure an even distribution of light: there's one in each bubble and one in the leg. Characterized by a playful, almost cheeky expression typical of Aarnio's creations, Double Bubble is celebrated as a masterpiece of modern Finnish design.
