Ariake’s Blest chair was designed with the thick and bulky seat as the starting point. The designers Anderssen & Voll wanted to combine the sturdy seat with a light, thin and gently curved backrest that also sparked inspiration for the chair’s name due to its shape that resembles a sail or a banner waving in the wind: ”blest” is Norwegian for wind.

”Amazing products, beautiful website, speedy and secure postage worldwide... what’s not to love? Nothing cheap here, that’s for sure, but this is perfect for special treats, and there’s IKEA for the rest! ;)”
”Both my purchases were excellent quality, priced at a very reasonable level and delivered in a matter of days despite me being the other side of the World. There is simply no way to describe that kind of a Company except amazingly good.”
”I’m crazy for the Finnish Design Shop, and all that I’ve bought from them. And when questions arose (regarding a bookshelf that needed clever assembly), their representatives in Finland were so helpful and thoughtful.”
”I ordered a HAY side table that was on back order everywhere else. It was a few hundred crowns more at Finnish Design Shop, but shipped the next day and was delivered to my door two days later, which I think was worth the extra cost. It came well-packaged, protected and the item is in perfect condition. I’m happy and would shop here again.”
”Finally a store with quality designed products available for shipment within days not weeks. Customer support is superb, great product portfolio, fast shipment.”
”I’ve bought at Finnish Design Shop many times over the years and I have always been extremely satisfied. Love their range of products (from classics to new awe-inspiring designs). Moreover they have very nice and helpful support team so I would always recommend!”

”Fast delivery. Ordered a hammock for my mothers birthday to be delivered at her adress. It’s in a somewhat rural area, but it was delivered at her door regardless. Great service.”
”Very good service. Unfortunately some plates were broken. Finnish design shop quickly responds and sends us new ones. That’s how service should be.”
”We purchased a Hay Snowden Kettle from the Finnish Design Shop - unfortunately there was a fault with the Kettle but this was professionally and quickly dealt with by the Olli on the After Sales team, so we can recommend them for their great customer service and after-sales experience.”
”I love this shop. All of my purchases have felt like a slice of Nordic happiness. Customer service is responsive and shipping is prompt. So nice to shop where I feel like a valued customer.”
