Tom Dixon creates Delaktig modular bed and sofa for IKEA

IKEA and Tom Dixon have revealed the results of their collaboration: a unique and versatile modular bed. Set to launch during Milan design week, Delaktig is a bed and sofa that can be modified into different styles of furniture throughout its lifetime.

For many, the living room is now a place to eat, drink, relax and socialise, therefore, adaptable furniture is key. Tom Dixon has created a concept that I’m sure will revolutionise how we use furniture.

IKEA and Tom Dixon have revealed the results of their collaboration: a unique and versatile modular bed. Set to launch during Milan design week, Delaktig is a bed and sofa that can be modified into different styles of furniture throughout its lifetime. For many, the living room is now a place to eat, drink, relax and socialise, therefore, adaptable furniture is key. Tom Dixon has created a concept that I'm sure will revolutionise how we use furniture.

DELAKTIG, the Swedish word for ”involvement”, is the perfect name for this collaborative take on modern living. In the spirit of updating design conventions, DELAKTIG invites anyone to add to it, or modify it to give it a different look and feel. You can add armrests and a lamp for a homely touch. Add a table and a new backrest cover. Swap the armrests around. Change the backrests. Change the entire cover completely, why don’t you? The options are endless!

Personally, I think the DELAKTIG is the perfect solution for a small flat. It fives you everything you need; a sofa, guest bed, reading nook, chaise lounge etc. So, why not try it out?

Think of DELAKTIG as a blank canvas. Once you decide the size of your base, let your needs and dreams determine the rest. Also, it’s never static, so, you are free to alter your space as often as you like.

‘We are in the midst of a huge revolution in how people create, manufacture and consume. The furniture business has been slow to respond to the opportunities, but now is an amazing time to experiment in new ways of working. In this case in a fresh collaboration directly with the consumer, industry and global experts’ – Tom Dixon

The DELAKTIG frame has an industrial feel, while still fitting with IKEA’s Scandi aesthetic. That is one of the reasons why IKEA and Tom chose to work with aluminum. It’s great for the industrial process, and its raw aesthetics makes for a durable, lightweight frame.


Do you have a small apartment that would benefit from practical furniture like this one?

I specialize in small spaces & storage solutions, plus I’m obsessed with colour psychology which helps me create super unique designs tailored to your personality.

Now, you can with me online! :)

Although Tom Dixon and IKEA have designed attachments for the DELAKTIG system, the Space10 innovation lab has teamed with open-source manufacturing platform Opendesk to create workspace attachments. Created by a team of seven designers, the attachments turn the sofa bed into work furniture, potentially extending its product cycle even further.

Xmas Table Setting Ideas

Hosting a get-together for family and friends this Christmas? You’ve come to the right place. A lot of people turn to Pinterest and other social media sites for inspiration and creative ideas. There are a number of ways to style your table for Christmas dinner, but, it can be hard to know where to start.

So, I’ve put together a set of inspirational pictures and product boards to show how you can create the look at home.

Be inspired By these 3 festive table ideas. Shop the look with the downloadable shopping lists. Enjoy!

1. Traditional Christmas

Think green and red hues, pretty napkins and festive candles. This look is probably the easiest to create as there are many suitable products available on the high street at the moment.

Use a combination of different patterns and textures to create a layered look. Christmas motifs, such as snowflakes, candy canes and christmas trees can be incorporated within the table cloth, napkins and ornaments. This trend can be very bold, but, to add a Scandi touch you can include rustic wooden objects and greenery.

2. Natural Scandi Christmas

Create the perfect ‘hygge’ festive home to dine in. Embrace Nordic neutrals, wood textures and faux fur layers to create a cosy dining space. A combination of crisp whites and natural elements make it all about you and your family, and nothing else.

A good tip to create a Scandi feel is to add natural objects, such as plants, pine cones or even cinnamon sticks.

3. Gold Christmas

Gold has always been a colour that symbolises Christmas, however, this year it is even more important. You’ll be seeing gold accents all over the high street on the run-up to the Christmas period.

As gold isn’t for everyone, you can have as much or little as you like. You can add gold elements in cutlery, crockery, candles, place settings and ornaments. Or, if you are very brave, you can combine them all to make a bold statement.

Warm your home with a dusting of sparkle to mark this special occasion.

Be inspired By these 3 festive table ideas. Shop the look with the downloadable shopping lists. Enjoy!

How To Style A Dressing Table

Dressing table??? – you say?! OMG – who has space for that? Well, just take a look at mine, it’s so skinny (and gorgeous) that it hardly takes up any space in the room. A tiny corner is perfect to fit it in, just make sure your face will get some natural light as well, otherwise, you might end up with those super cool makeup light bulbs around the mirror HAHA :)

How to style a dressing table? Click through to read my 4 tips to an always stylish must have bedroom piece.

So a have a couple of tips, that I believe always work when it comes to decorating girly spaces. I haven’t gone mad tho, as I live with a husband, who doesn’t appreciate too much faux fur, pink and velvet around himself :) you know what I mean.

1. Display the brushes

Brushes are sooooo pretty, and if you’re ready to spend a fortune on them then they are even prettier :) this is something that you use every day, so why not put them out on the spot? Get a pretty brush holder jar from Etsy, or make one for yourself and display your brushes on your dressing table. Make sure that the jar matches your brush’s style tho ;)

Would you like a personalized colour palette created for your home?

I mean, one that’s based on your unique personality type?

Cause now you can have it, for FREE. It will take 20 minutes of your time, on a call with me.

There’s no trick, I want to help 20 people experience the power of colour. Grab your spot today as seats are limited!

2. Gorgeous makeup can be left out!

There is always at least 2 or 3 things that have a special edition packaging or are just crazy pretty by default. I recently bought this YSL Xmas gift for myself (do you also find yourself buying stuff for yourself when looking for gifts??? or is it jut me?).  So, the bundle had 3 products in it. The mascara and the touch eclat are just so pretty that I never put them away from my dressing table, I like looking at them there.

3. Decorate with your accessories

Bracelets, rings and a watch can all look very stylish when displayed nicely and organised. I don’t wear too much jewellery, but I always wear a watch. My Jord watch is made of wood, so is its beautiful box, so it’s a great decorative item to display, and makes the morning easier, as everything is in one place.

If you fancy a watch that’s a bit more special, take a look at these Jord watches here or if you fancy my watch from the images, you can find that here. It’s a relatively big watch, however, as it’s made of wood it feels really light on the wrist (compared to other watches of the same size). I like wearing this with my knitted winter jumpers and knee-high boots :)

4. Show off your feminine fragrance

We buy the perfume because we like the scent & because the bottle looks lovely too, don’t we? Beautiful packaging sells the product and the best thing about it, is that you can display this on your dressing table. The fancier, the better :)

The Coolest Lighting Trends Spotted On The London Design Fair

When it comes to lighting products, I always desire for something cool, not just for myself, for my customers too. It can make such a difference! I seriously hate those boring lighting concepts in our heads, that we need a chandelier, a desk lamp, some spot lights, maybe classic (cheap) side lamps in the bedroom and we’re done, lighting design ready for the home. Pfffff! It’s even worse when lighting is forgotten, ’cause it’s the last thing you do anyway, and people run out of money (curtains and blinds suffer a lot from this too, especially after a big refurb).

So, I suggest you plan your lighting well ahead, and pick interesting, statement pieces for each of your rooms. Just like anywhere else in the home, you can combine designer pieces with high street brands or with special buys from the flea market. The important bit to keep in mind is, that the owner has to like the lamp – side note: you and your spouse CAN have different side lamps in your bedroom if you have different tastes, just make sure they match on some level, or the surroundings bring it all together in an eclectic way. Plus, don’t try to force your taste onto your children. If they want a blue or a pink desk lamp, let them have it, they will sit with more pleasure at their desks if they like how it looks and feel good in their rooms.

Now, here we go – the very best delivered to you straight from the London Design Fair – latest & greatest, a bit of innovation and all time classics, re-imagined.

The two lads from Well Lit Led are on a mission to deliver quality led lighting for a reasonable price. The result? A beautiful dimmable led filament, that comes in a bright orange colour and is flexible enough to fold into any shape.

Did I mention that they are BEAUTIFUL? My personal favourite is the huge globe shaped bulb with the smokey glass :) Which one do you like?

I love blackboards around the house, they help kickstart my creativity. I believe in using surfaces to write or draw on them, and personalize them this way. From wallpapers to stickers I am crazy about everything that can be used as a blackboard (or whiteboard, for that matter). I’m a visual person ;)

So it is no wonder that I fell immediately in love with the In-es artdesign pendant lamps.

My other favourite was the grater-lamp. It comes in multiple colours with different types of fabric cables. I quite love the idea and have seen so many DIY tutorials on how to create one of these, but it’s nice to know that you can buy these ready-made if you are short on time or just simply sooooooo not good at DIY (like me, hah!).

(I’d love to hear if you’d be interested to read about stuff like this!)

The beautiful Graypants lamps caught my attention on 100% design as they were hanged from the ceiling. They are made from 100% recycled cardboard, the shape and the craft is absolutely beautiful plus the lamps are super light!

The last brand I wanted to talk about is my very favourite. Of course, they are scandi and their lamps are absolutely gorgeous! I love that they use unusual materials to design their products and with every new family, they create statement lighting, that looks just stunning. Yeah, you can probably tell that I am massively in love with all things

The Secret Behind Handmade Products

It’s been ages since I could just sit down and write. There is so much going on in my life right now that it is really hard to find the time.

I visited multiple events during the London Design Fair – you will see couple of posts coming out on the treasures I found, during the next couple of weeks. We found a new house that we will rent long term – unfurnished – YEAH! that’s right, I am furbishing our own home this time FROM SCRATCH. This is the best (and scariest) thing that can happen with an interior designer – trust me, we really really really wanna get this right :) Of course, it will be Scandinavian, but with a statement to reflect my style, maybe a bit eclectic here and there. You will get a sneak peek very soon – just follow me on Instagram.

And here we come – the real reason for this blog post is to share what I’ve been up to last weekend, when I was invited to Handmade at Kew by The Window to their #LiveTheStory event.

The secret behind handmade products - click through to discover

I love handmade things, because they are unique and special. There is so much thought and passion behind these products, but we hardly have the opportunity or the patience to research the story behind a product that we love. It makes such a difference when you can meet the designer and maker, talk to them and experience the process of making. Suddenly, a cushion may become more precious and the price of a hand-printed wallpaper starts to make sense.

The window is bringing us (bloggers) closer to the process, so we can meet the person behind the design and hear their stories. So, here we go, this is what I learnt on the day.

The secret revealed behind the uniqueness of handmade products
The secret behind handmade products - click through to discover

I’ve never seen screen printing before and hardly ever seen hand-printed wallpaper in real-life (pretty bad for an interior designer, isn’t it?). So I was very happy when I was invited to see Daniel Heath’s silk-screen printed wallpaper in the making. You would not imagine how time consuming this is. Each design is printed in multiple layers precise and with care. There is absolutely no room for mistakes, as then you can start it all over again. You have to be very careful on how much paint you apply – it’s tricky, as you have to put on just the right amount, otherwise you either don’t get the design you wanted or it’s overdone. Difficult and very humble process, where your creation is the focus of your attention; this is what makes a truly unique product.

Daniel let me try to screen-print the base of this gorgeous green wallpaper design. What do you think? :)

Hand printed wallpaper is a real piece of art work and can be a great lifetime investment if you’re looking for something outstanding, to make that personal statement for you. As Daniel’s wallpapers are made to order, you can choose from a variety of colors and designs to make it your own.

This is obviously not something you would put on all your walls, as it is quite expensive – but, think about it this way – would you invest in a fine piece of art to decorate your walls? Yes? Well, then this is for you as it is no different in it’s nature. Hand made art, made specifically for you to decorate one of your walls in your home :)

So I was walking around the stands on this year’s designjunction and I saw these chairs with gorgeous pattern in fabulous colors and I was thinking: “OMG, I’m not even familiar with this brand!” so, I went there and spoke to Corinne, founder of Frame & Cover.

I found out that the brand is new, Corinne took all her experience and created her own label to be able to produce high quality furniture from sustainable resources – something I care about a LOT! Some of you may know that I watched this space through my blogging journey and, trust me there are fascinating things out there to save our planet. If you guys show interest in hearing more about this, I will pick up the topic and blog more about sustainable design in the future – let me know in the comments section below.

Frame & Cover provided the lounge furniture at the Handmade at Kew show, so I could meet Corinne again and hear more about her story and what inspires her to create these beautiful patterns and colors on her fabrics.

The secret behind handmade products - click through to discover

I found out that she’s old school in her design process and uses paper first (so do I, hah!) and it was very interesting to hear how difficult it is to get the colors right, when you are trying to print a pattern onto fabric. It takes a lot of trying and you got to be patient.

I mean, even when you’re printing a photo, how different can that look like from what you’ve seen on your screen? I cannot even imagine, how that changes when you print on a piece of fabric…

It took Corinne about 3 years to get to where she is now, but we’re so happy she’s made it as the result is gorgeous, stylish, unique furniture – something we all desire and appreciate.

You can buy chairs, cushions and fabric/meter – get in touch, as everything is made to order, in England, by a unique selection of craftsman.

If you are hunting cool linen cushions to finish off your hunting lodge decor – here you go! I found the perfect match for you at Peaceable Kingdom Cushions. Handcrafted for you, in multiple colors and unique designs.

The secret behind handmade products - click through to discover

You would think it’s easy to make cushions, right? Well, let me tell you, that it’s not. You have to be careful with how much paint to apply (so easy to overdo it), then you have pretty much just one chance to place the linen on the wooden board with the pattern and paint on it ( can’t move it AT ALL after the linen touched the paint), and then it takes up to 4 days for the oil paint to dry completely.

The cushions are very good quality, and so comfy, about £70 each. If you’d like one get in touch and order yours soon. My favorite is the one with the sleeping cat. Which one would you prefer?

After the bloggers event I went for a walk in Kew gardens and I had some time to absorb it all. And I think I have the answer to this questions:

What is the secret behind a handmade product? What makes it so special?

I believe, the one thing is:

Passion.

There’s this thing that all these brands have in common, and that’s passion. They are passionate about creating these products the way they think & feel it’s the best. And the beauty of ‘hand made’ is that they are part of every item they create.
