STOCKHOLM TRENDS

February 15, 2018

This past week, the SUITE NY team attended the Stockholm Furniture Fair. Although there was a lot to see, there was a sense of seamlessness and continuity amongst most of the designs showcased. Some of the trends we picked up on included tubular frames, woven seats, dusty tones, spherical lighting and the combination of metal and leather. This week, we’ve chosen five pieces from our current collection that embody the trends we encountered.
Be sure to check out next Wednesday’s newsletter where we’ll be launching new product that was unveiled in Stockholm.
JULIUS
Fräg & Blanche, 2016
Julius is a generous and inviting lounge made using the revolutionary eco-friendly and waste-minimizing technique of “wood tailoring.” Färg and Blanche, the designers who we had the pleasure of meeting at the fair, described the concept they’d developed in which the wood, padding and upholstery are all sewn together. The result is a highly unique stitching pattern that decorates the outer wood shell with thread available in a variety of colors.
FK 6720
Fabricius & Kastholm, 1968
The comfortable and sophisticated FK 6720 Sofa is a prime example of minimalist Danish design. Designed by Jørgen Kastholm and Preben Fabricius, luxurious leather upholstered cushions rest on top of a beautifully structured angular stainless steel base. Leather rope wrapped around the arms of the sofa add to the retro yet sophisticated style of the seat.
COCO CHAIR
OeO Studio, 2016
The Coco Chair was designed with an eye to create a charismatic signature design that offers a high level of comfort. The chair borrows references from the industrial simplicity and style of the Bauhaus, but the inspiration of the design comes from a desire to create a simple yet elegant chair with a minimal use of materials and tools without compromising the design and character.
WOVEN LEATHER BENCH
Mel Smilow, 1956 | 2016
The Woven Leather Bench is an extension of the archive of designs by mid century American designer, Mel Smilow. This modern woven bench is available in two lengths and has a transitional quality making it suitable for a wide range of interior styles.
MASS PENDANT
NORM Architects, 2012
Inspired by European street lamps, NORM Architects Kasper Rønn and Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen transferred the shape and combination of materials in order to design this utilitarian indoor pendant. The unusual use of solid marble for this pendant gives it an exceptional sense of quality and durability.
