After visiting design fairs I’m always back with many news to share. However, this time back from Stockholm Design Week I really don’t know from where to start!
Stockholm Furniture fair is the largest furniture fair of Scandinavia, so it’s really a good source for inspiration and for news. In addition to this, Scandinavian design is still the reference point for interiors and design lovers, as well as the starting point for all trends on interior and design.
Indeed, my feeling is that Scandinavian design is still far from being outdated. Even if I must admit I’m partial on this, as you already know, I’ve been loving Scandinavian design since ages.
This post features some interesting design news from the Stockholm Furniture Fair 2018, with some new products by outstanding Scandinavian design brands and something outside Scandinavia as well.
Stay tuned as many other posts on what I’ve spotted in Stockholm will come soon!

The Enclose chair by Norm Architects well represent two of the latest sofa trends spotted at the fair, the highback design and the research for silence and privacy.
2 | Apollo lamp by Pholc
Apollo is a lamp with very clean Scandinavian design matched with beautiful pastel colors. Color is perfectly matched with geometry and material, as the conical shapes are created by a solid piece of brass.
3 | Society Table by Arne Jacobsen, Carl Hansen & Son
The Society table was designed by in 1952 Arne Jacobsen as a gift for the American-Scandinavian Foundation in New York. Now it is first produced again by Carl Hansen & Son. It is an unique classic yet contemporary piece, in line with today’s interior design trends but with a timeless design. The table combines wood, steel and a beautiful leather top.
4 | Rejkjavik Daybed, Skagerak
Reykjavik Daybed is inspired by Iceland architecture. Its beautiful clean design imitates the reflections of the characteristic wooden constructions and the corrugated steel roofs of city. The daybed frame is made from solid wooden planks, while the colour balance can be changed by flipping over the mattress.
