As you might remember I have spent ten weeks in Michigan styling Herman Millers brand books last years, so I was thrilled to meet some of my HM colleagues in Milan last week and I loved the new collection by Michael Anastassiades that they launched.
Luxury fashion brand Loewe launched a furniture collection in Milan last week, as always I’m intrigued when fashion is doing interior but this is also exciting because it is so bold and brave along with an amazing handicraft and quality. See more here.
There are really no images that makes this justice. Fondazione Prada is one of the most amazing and inspiring places I have ever seen, the artmuseum by architecture firm OMA led by Rem Koolhaas is placed at a former industrial area just outside Milan..an absolute must visit whenever in town.
Dimore is always one of my favorite exhibitions at the furniture fair in Milan and their apartment like showroom was totally redesigned this year. Darker, shinier and with amazing color and material combinations.This years exhibition was more about the furniture and less styling then previous years but yet very inspiring.
Ok, here we go. I was just about to post a sweep of my own pictures but you can see pretty much all of them on my Instagram so instead of a summery I will dig in to of a few of my highlights from last weeks furniture fair in Milan. First out is De Padova, one of my all time favorite brands that have been bought by Boffi and moved in to a brand new amazing showroom designed by Piero Lissoni, Italian estethics at its best.
I am off to milan and the furniture fair so it might be a bit quiet here on the blog next week but please follow me on Instagram for updates @lottaagaton or tune in here again in a week for a full report.
After one year with lots of fun, late night meetings and crazy projects being the Creative Director of Residence Magazine I have realized that it is impossible to do everything I want to do with the magazine on the side of my ordinary work as a stylist, time is just not enough. So (as some of you have seen already) I have decided to no longer be the Creative Director but I will still be working closely with the magazine as a freelance stylist and it will always have a special place in my heart.
On saturday I am off for the annual furniture fair in Milan. One of the highlights for me is always Dimores Studio and I have seen on Instagram that they are preparing a major change this year, can’t wait to see it. Until then I’m staying inspired by their furniture collection.
Today I am by inspired by the french architect Charlotte Perriand who is not only an amazing designer but also a woman to admire for her believes and determination. She applied for a job at Le Corbusier‘s studio in 1927 (at the age of 24) and being famously rejected with the reply “We don’t embroider cushions here”. Perriand was determined to get the job so renovated her apartment into a room with a large bar made of aluminum glass and chrome for the Salon d’Automne and was after that receiving a notice from Le Corbusier offering her a job being in charge of their interiors and promoting their designs through a series of exhibitions.
Such a great role model..Show the world what you can, go get what you want and have a great sunday dear blog readers!
Etage Projects is a small gallery in Copenhagen that exhibits art, objects and furniture by upcoming artists, architects and designers. Their website is so inspiring and makes me crave for all they have..and there is a webshop!
This is the new images shot at OUUR (Kinfolks publish house) brand new amazing looking office in Copenhagen designed and photographed by Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen and styled by Sofie Brünner for Menu. I love all about this!
This is one of the most inspiring places I have ever been, on so many levels. For the first it is the home of my dear collegue that has also become one of my best friends, photographer Pia Ulin. And she did what all of us are just talking about, she went all in for it and sold her place in Stockholm, got an NY agent and moved to Brooklyn. I know it hasn’t been as easy as it sounds but to me it is so inspiring to have the strength to trust you dream and just do it. This Brooklyn loft is amazing and Pia has redone the whole place together with her architects Bangia Agostinho.
Photographed by Pia herself and styling by me for Residence magazine (the issue is out now and also features a NY guide made by us).
PS: To all our old and new clients. Pia can still work in Sweden and I really like NY..it is just a flight apart and we love to work together so please keep booking us as a team, wherever you are! DS.
