Lookalike shelves and tables


Shelf by byLassen. TWIN.

There are certain things that seem to pop up everywhere in more or less the same form looking very much alike. Shelves, like the one above from byLassen, is one of those forms. When I saw this, recently announced by byLassen, my first thought was that I had seen it before. But where? Also available as a table.

Was it the one at MIO? I have the above sideboard. Also available as a table and some other models.

We can also compare it to IKEAs series VITTSJÖ, which gives the same expression.

All come in either black or white and sometimes some other colors as well.

Is it only me that find them very similar? Except the price of course which varies wildly. I like the form of them, their expression. In the end what you choose depends on the measures and the price.

Stockholm Furniture and Light Fair 2014

So I spent about three hours a the Stockholm Furniture and Light Fair 2014 yesterday. That is about as long you can be at a fair in my experience. Then you get too tired to see anything more or take anything more in. I didn’t visit Hall C!  Suspected as much after having visited Hall A, Hall B and the Green House. But by then I wouldn’t have been able to see more. What did I miss in Hall C, I wonder? Always a nice experience though. It is SO nice to look at all the beautiful furniture and lights there.

How about trends then? This year, softer profiles, lots of pastels, lots of greys and greys and greys (which I love). And greens (which I do not particularly like unless we are talking about plants). Natural materials. No patterns, structure instead. Playful forms at times. Lots of new and nice lights. This is a personal report from the fair.
