I’ve been reading and looking at pictures of the Woonbeurs (interior fair) for years now. And I always felt like I was missing out. So this year I decided to go. And man, I was not disappointed!
Especially the Eigen Huis & Interieur together with More Than Classic stand was so gorgeous I almost threw up.
Beautiful and Inspirational (yes, with a capital).
Also talented designer Lex Pott showed his awesome new products for Hay.
I was a fan of Lex Pott since I saw his work at the Dutch Design Week last year. And the combination of Lex and Hay is a match made in designer-heaven.
Lex Pott likes his designs to be reduced to their fundamentals. His designs show the essence of the object. So working together with Hay, a brand that wants to invoke the innovate design of the 50’s and 60’s, is just golden. I literally had to rip myself away form this stand (and from photographing myself in all the cool mirrors).
The stand of Eigen Huis & Interieur in collaboration with More Than Classic was just too good for words. Steven van Manen did a stand out job putting this stand together.
The thing I liked best about the stand: Objects were mixed together is a very forward way. This made the whole stand feel so new and fresh.
And to top it of Eigen Huis & Interieur presented their own furniture line. The whole stand looked like one big yummie pastel candy. And the pieces were really good.
And even though it is not a great picture, I just have to show you this blue sofa. It was the best sofa ever! The velvet and cushions were so soft, it felt like a cloud. Seriously, I’ve been dreaming about this sofa…
