By now you probably know my family and I spent the summer in Amsterdam… we were fortunate enough to stay two weeks in our own apartment as the tenant had moved out early… I have never been so happy to see a tenant move out as this was a great opportunity to do (yes, you have guessed it right…) just a bit of interior decorating… every year we try to add something new to our place and slowly but surely we are creating our own amazing little nest, trial and error, but ultimately exactly the way we like it.
Last year we had a big makeover done by our friends XandL, perhaps you remember that post? And this year we bought a new much smaller couch at Loods5, I think it fits perfectly in our living room and the best part is that you can use it as a super comfortable sofa bed too.
Very happy I am with our new design piece … the carbon sideboard 'Fien' (funny coincidence, Fien is my favorite girl name…if we were to have a girl that is, no plans at present…:)) by Dutch designer Frank Winburst. We also bought the bookshelf ‘Stan’ but haven’t had time yet to put it up … next time when we are there! Christmas maybe…?
The Carbon series is a range of products constructed with carbon threads. The system is made by hand spinning a black carbon tread around MDF shelves and fixate them with epoxy resin, creating a lightweight but strong and stable construction.
The felt pillows are by Tas-ka and now also available in the Bloesem shop in Singapore.
More pictures after the break.
