Verso Design

19 Aug

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.

Finnish Lush Labels: Vallila Interior

28 Mar

I’m in Finland at the moment and of course I’m drinking Jaffa here. Jaffa is a legendary Finnish fizzy drink like Fanta, just that it is nicer and as the legend goes the yellow Jaffa cures upset stomachs and even nasty hangovers. That’s no news though, what is news is that Finnish Design company Vallila Interior‘s Jaffa fabrics seem to be now everywhere.

Therefore I had to take a closer look and I discovered more beautiful textiles and interiors materials from cushions to wall papers. And Vallila interiors doesn’t stop there, they also offer interior design services and have many famous Finnish spaces under their belt, such as the funky GLO Hotel in the middle of Helsinki. Vallila Interiors have been awarded the key flag symbol for its Finnish designs.

My favourites of their collections are obvioulsy the Jaffa fabrics but also the fabrics that feature beautiful Finnish nature and buildings from  my home town Helsinki!
