Last week, as part of a three-part mini series about Scandinavian design and the different takes on it, I posted pictures of one of my favourite brands, Day Birger et Mikkelsen, here. Strictly speaking, they're not an interiors brand, but their line of home accessories is beautiful and very much me. Anyway, today I've chosen Bloomingville, another company that exhibited at TopDrawer and whose designs I very much like even if it is for completely different reasons.
Most of you will of course be familiar with Bloomingville and their products. Their look is far lighter and more what we would expect of typical Scandinavian design. There's always a touch of natural materials, organic shapes and patterns in their wares and the inspiration for these comes, amongst other things, from nostalgic Scandinavian design as well as French brocantes. Bloomingville's style is pretty much what I generally perceive Scandinavian design to be: Light, natural, organic, with a nod to mid-century, and playful without being too frilly. A mix that makes it perfect and easy to have around, these designs can light up dark, nordic winter days without feeling out of place on a sunny spring day.
