Lundby Dolls House

23 Aug

These are the dolls houses that I remember from the 80s! Dating back to the 40s in fact, Swedish Lundby dolls houses are still very hip and happening. They were the first dolls houses to come with lights and their range of accessories is endless and very modern these days to say the least. The most popular type of a house has been the Gothenburg that was discontinued in 2006 and its updated version is known as Smaland nowadays. The other models are called Stockholm and Gotland, Stockholm being very modern and Gotland the country cottage.

Lundby’s dolls houses are also ideal for some DIY action, especially if you have an old, a bit tired house, as the wallpapers are quickly updated with some cool wrapping paper or wall paper left overs – every room with a different type of course.

Lundby dolls houses and accessories can be found for example at Kidsen or on ebay!

There is also a downloadable Lundby lifestyle magazine for dolls house inspiration on Lundby’s home page.

Verso Design

One of the new brands (to me) I fell in love with on my recent trip to Finland was Verso Design. Established already in 1997 this Finnish Design company creates lovely interiors items made of felt. After quick search on the internet, Verso Design creations can be bought at Finnish Design Shop or Finnish Gifts. I got one of the ‘Marja’ trivets for my friend and the only problem was choosing the colour.
