..WITH LOVE FROM THE NORDICS

Danish Divine Design...!

The ANGEL stool

 

Always had a thing for beautiful, sculptural yet simple design. Earlier this year, when I was looking for that kind of (Nordic!) design to add to my shop, I came across this absolute eye catcher: the ANGEL stool by Addinterior, Denmark. Love at first sight! And, when it came to my shop, it was pretty exciting to find out...how does it 'sit'???

My purchase had been pretty impulsive, all based on the amazing design. Well, that moment of sitting down came...and it was surprisingly soooo comfortable. More excitement rushed out: whoohoo! How do the Danes do this! Admiration and respect for their ability to shape steel so sculptural, yet simple and make the product a fully practical and useful addition to your home. Unique, minimalistic and...divine design!

The ANGEL stool is designed by the Danish designer Gry Holmskov. Let me add a short video of Gry explaining her inspiration to design the ANGEL STOOL Was it the angel shadow that she wanted to create? Was it a form in nature that she wanted to use?

The ANGEL stool is available @ northbound webshop! Priced at €240,- Click here to view!

The ANGEL stool is designed and produced in Denmark. True craftsmanship! 

   

It's ALL about...the weather

A Swedish friend is visiting this weekend. Been years since we saw each other! 

A message from her on FB: "I thought you said you would have nicer weather at the end of May. Just checked the forecast before starting to pack and saw that we'll be having shittier weather in NL than here in Sweden?! Rain and 10-14 degrees?! WTF?" (...I've been trying to figure out what these last letters mean...my guess: WeaTher Forecast?...:)

I don't know why, but I feel terribly guilty and almost responsible...that the weather is so...Nordic!

Since I started my nordic adventure with northbound...I've noticed that the weather has not been very Spring/Summery sunny hot... I sometimes use it to promote my shop, my nordic concept...posting things like 'cold weather coming #withlovefromthenordics' or 'nordic weather outside northbound's Pop-Up store'. See here, last Friday...hailing outside the store...

 

Well, OK, not very funny to keep joking about. But it's just not fair! It's not the Spring we've been hoping for. And, to make it worse...I just read a weather forecast blog...where they say that this Summer is going to be the worse Summer since...a long, looooong time. 

To ease the pain...and get the smile back upon our faces: just keep looking out for northbound's great products from...the Nordics. I don't dare say, but...it can take all weather types!!!
