Montana Collection IV

This season, Montana introduced their new Collection IV, which is a series of ready-made pieces that you can easily choose for specific solutions. This collection comes very handy for those who love Montana but are overwhelmed by the huge array of possibilities the Brand has to offer. The whole philosophy of Montana since it began in 1982, is to create possibilities, and this new way of presenting these, as they call them “ready-made solutions” , give a specific function to each one of them, so you only have to pick your solution and choose your favourite among 42 different colours.

All of these awesome images were created by Montana.

We have divided them into the separate areas of the home.

Our top pick from this year's VTWonen & Designbeurs

This year we totally missed the VTWonen & Designbeurs, but of everything we have seen online, this is definitely our top pick.

Amsterdam based Floor Knaapen, designed a “Home” for Eigen Huis & Interieur, a gorgeous minimal space in soft tones, and we spotted some pieces of our favourite brands.

eigenhuiseninterieur-aprilandmay (7).jpeg

Using beautiful objects from MENU and &Tradition, the magazine did an outstanding job.

eigenhuiseninterieur-aprilandmay.jpeg

We love the way Floor used an achromatic palette to create a contrasting backdrop for natural colours, like brass and wood. Love to see the FORMAKAMI pendants lamps from Jaime Hayon, I've had a crush with them for a long time, hope soon you can find them in our collection?

And what do you think about these mirrors? They are designed by April and May for Loof furniture I totally love the combination and balance between the oak and the mirror, and I find super handy the little shelf where you can keep your favourite things such as jewellery, make-up, keys …..

Baux acoustic panels and tiles

We love BAUX. It’s modular, comes in many colours, shapes and sizes, and its a not-so-expensive solution for acoustics if you are actually concerned with aesthetics.
We first found out about BAUX by following Form Us With Love, a Swedish design studio that we absolutely admire.

Ive gathered some images from their image bank, along with their own text, but I can tell you as an already active user of BAUX, they are as good (or even better) as what you see from their own communication.

They are super easy to install (meaning you just have to glue them to the wall) and since they are modular and there are so many possibilities, the end result really depends on your own (or the architect’s) creativity.

You can see a project we did with BAUX here.

Give us your comments or contact us if you want to know more.


Functional + beautiful

BAUX was founded on the belief that building materials should be surprisingly functional and remarkably beautiful. BAUX designs, produces and markets functional construction materials that meet the contemporary expectations of architects, engineers and builders – without compromising tomorrow’s safety and environmental standards.

BAUX Acoustic Panels

BAUX Acoustic Panels is an environment-friendly, recyclable material made from wood wool, cement and water. The natural components together provide many functional characteristics. BAUX Acoustic Panels is available in 7 patterns; Quilted, Check, Stripes, Lines, Diagonal, Arch and Curve. All designed to be combined into infinity.

They come in 2 sizes: H = 29 cm and H 59 cm.

The Danish Home

Recently, we found these incredible pictures via pinterest and totally fell in love with this apartment. The styling and concept by Pella Hedeby is gorgeous and the apartment is breathtaking; from the materials used to the colour schemes and OMG the huge windows giving the perfect light, and what can I say about the view of snowy Stockholm. I mean, who wouldn’t love living here?
