Black Hyacinth by Percy

A long time favourite of mine is the teacup Black Hyacinth by Arthur Percy for Gefle. Percy (1886–1976) presented this pattern in 1956, and it is one of the finest early screen prints on porcelain in Sweden. The cup feels good to handle and is perfect for tea. And… it is a lovley sight with the beautiful grown flowers on the cup, and the sweet bud pattern on the saucer.
Best tea cup ever? If only there´d been a pot too…!

Since the launch in 2011 of the Tati series for Asplund Collection, Mats Broberg and Johan Ridderstråle have worked with a wide range of producers, from mentioned Asplund to Klong, Muuto, Röshults and Swedese. Tati has been a tremendeous success, and the Tati Coat Rack has become sort of a trademark for the duo. Hence they were happy to use it for the interior of classic menswearstore Gabucci in Stockholm.

Let’s daydream!

A daybed is the perfect piece of furniture when your´re in for a little daydreaming. It has been popular for decades and rightly so. Sometimes it comes in the shape of a Safari bed – that’s the kind of bed you can fold and carry with you on your safari through life. At other times it looks more like an exclusive divan…(surely an hour on William will make every freudian slip slip away!). And once in a while the graceful combo of bed and sofa presents itself as a comfortable and handsome luxoury. Let’s daydream!

From late Fall until Christmas we Stockholmers can enjoy the Åkerö apple. Growing as it is at the small island Åkerö in the Sörmland area, it graces a few shops with its cool beauty. It is also known as ”the glass apple”, and that is an appropriate description when it comes to the look. The taste is fresh with a hint of  sweetness reminding us of Summer.
