It's almost Christmas, which means that my mind tends to drift to Copenhagen ... a lot. I've said it before that December in Copenhagen is a wonderful time of the year; everything looks so festive. If I were in Copenhagen today I'd head straight to Illums Bolighus on Strøget (the main shopping street) to view – and hopefully to buy – Scandinavian design. It's definitely my favourite shop in the city. Afterwards I'd sit down at a nice café or restaurant, continuing to dream about the beautiful design.
So, today I'm doing a bit of imaginary shopping. With plenty of cash in my wallet this is just a small portion of what I would buy:
- Cocoon bowls and vases in black glass with white glass inside from Holmegaard. Design: Peter Svarrer - maybe I would choose another colour but the black ones have that perfect classic look
- Etagere 3 layer from Royal Copenhagen
- Dania teak boxes from TripTrap
- Tivoli Audio Music System - we have a radio from them and we love it
- Cocoon tealight holders in various colours from Holmegaard. Design: Peter Svarrer
- Miniature versions in pink of Arne Jacobsen's the Ant and the Number Seven chairs from 1:6 DESIGN - I would buy a miniature of the Egg chair too
- Uten Silo storage system in ABS plastic from Vitra Design Museum. Design: Dorothee Becker – a white one for me, please
- Leather baskets with white stiches from Ørskov. Design: Jørgen Møller – I would choose a brown one
Is there a city in the world, which you especially connect with this time of the year?
Yesterday I took an unplanned break from blogosphere. I had to run some errands and when I got home I simply decided to keep the day blog free. I didn't view one single blog and that hasn't happened since I started blogging. As I was busy on Monday I'm afraid to open my Bloglovin' right now; I think the number of unread posts will bring on a panic attack!
Have a wonderful Wednesday!
