“I have always liked timeless design classics, and particularly the Danish style. A couple of years ago, when we found the dream home for our family in a row home built in 1963, I began to dream about Louis Poulsen’s iconic PH 5 pendant light. This year's anniversary edition, the PH 5 with a copper shade, would be a perfect fit for our kitchen or living room, which are in their original state.

“Skagerak’s Jut cabinet is beautiful in its proportions and petite in size, so it suits many spaces. The brass details are delicate in just the right way. The cabinet was designed by Thomas Jenkins, and it is also available with a marble top.”
Kukka Eira, Project Sales
“The new Emperor pendant lights from Normann Copenhagen’s Tivoli series delight with their playful form. Brass is also wonderfully suited for the dark time of the year. Lighting is something that can be played with: you can modify the atmosphere of a space easily, but still in a visible way.”

“My favorite is Artek’s A810 floor lamp, which I already discovered in the 80s. It has been in my family for nearly 30 years, and still works flawlessly. Alvar Aalto’s lamp is timeless, stylish, and durable. The perfect reading lamp!”
Cindy Valo, Financial Management Assistant
“The Cone floor lamp from Warm Nordic exudes the 1950s and speaks to me strongly, as does the functionality of the lamp. In addition to serving as mood lighting and a reading light, the lamp functions as a convenient platform for a coffee or tea cup, as I curl up into an armchair to read a good book. That is to say, a perfect purchase for Santa’s gift bag.
