    Stockholm Design Week 2013, Best New Furniture & Product Curated by Yellowtrace.

     

    The 62nd annual Stockholm Design Week 2013 and Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair took place between 4-10 February. Despite the fact that I observed the developments of this significant Scandinavian design event from the comfort of my own chair, I wanted to share with you the highlights, new product releases and emerging talent that caught my attention.

    Due to the enormity of this post, I’ve decided to split it in two parts. Today I will talk about some of my favourite new furniture and products. Next week I will bring you my top selections of new lighting and interesting installations that took place during the design week.

      I especially like the airberg couches and the homework table. I think both designs are creative and different from the common furniture range which we see around. The airberg couches do indeed look super comfy and look as though there is a storage compartment underneath them. The homework table looks like it evokes a sense of fun by using ice-cream sticks design for the table legs. I love viewing catalogs of such interesting furniture ideas.
