More Finnish Design – Lisää Suomi-designia

I love Nordic design and particularly Finnish design. I have mentioned that hundereds of times in my blog. I pretty much decorate my house with Nordic pieces as it gives me the feeling of being at home plus it makes it a bit unusual too. I love of course Marimekko and Vallila that are  distributed to elsewhere in Europe. Another favourite of mine is Pentik. They produce classic a bit country style interior design pieces with modern Nordic twist. Their glassware is particularly lovely. Soft colours and round shapes.

I have Pentik Saaga set for dining and coffee. This time I bought couple of more pieces for that collection.

I bought serviets too to go with my Saaga set.


I also bought a woolen throw. I have struggled to find a soft woolen throw in Enland. The kind of that would be soft not itchy and also good quality. The challenge with woolen throws is that you want to have 100% wool, but the wool fibre needs to be soft not coarse. In addition to this challenge in many countries they tend to mix wool with acrylic or polyester, this has been the case with most of the lovely woolen throws I have found in London. I have dreamed of this grey and white one since I saw it online so I headed to the Pentik store yesterday and bought one for our master bedroom. It is so beautiful. The birds on the throw give that kind of rural but soft vibe. The grey and white will go nicely with my grey, white and black Marimekko ”Satula” curtains.


I am still dreaming of their Saga throw too…
