Just Scandinavian

Disclaimer: This post has nothing to do with Boston, a little to do with New York, and everything to do with Scandinavian design.

I spent a few days in New York last week for work. During one the evenings I was off I took the subway from my hotel near JFK into Manhattan. I got off in Soho and walked south, into Tribeca. I wasn't looking for anything in particular, just kind of seeing what was going on on a Wednesday night. I happened upon this charming little store called Just Scandinavian.

As you can guess by the name, they sell a wide variety of Scandinavian design items. They are the exclusive US distributor of Josef Frank textiles (photo above). A set of Frank's brightly colored lamp shades would at a touch of color to any boring beige decor.

I fell in love with the Corona Chair, designed by Poul M. Vother in 1961. In it's description on the website, it says "This design is inspired by time-lapsed photographs of solar eclipses." It's available in a variety of colors and fabrics, but I think that orange would great with my dark blue sofas.

Love the chair and the idea behind it. Definitely orange with the dark blue sofas. Unless, of course, they have a fuzzy pink one...

That corona chair is so lovely. I would like it in green. It reminds me of a fern leaf.

PS I from Boston, too (Wellesley really) but living in Marrakesh now.

I fell in love with it when I saw a red leather version of it in a shop some years ago. I couldn´t affordit, but my mother saw that I was drooling over it. :-) On my 40th birthday they delivered it, together with the footstool, as a gift from my mother. I couldn´t believe my eyes! It is soooo beautiful. I´m still in love with it. :-)Great blog of yours. First time I am here today. I have a design blog as well, in Swedish, most of the times. But the links and the pictures are in a universal language.
