If you are in London for the Design Week, don’t miss out on Faye Toogoods exhibition The Trade Show in Brompton Design district. I won’t be able to make it to London this year but it sure looks amazing.
The ever so brilliant Paris based designer Pierre Yovanovitch curates the exhibition Oops opening today in N.Y. at R & co with 24 pieces of his own pieces mixed with art works from American and French artists.
Åkerlundska villan is one of my latest interior projects, it is a 1800th century beautiful castle like mansion by the waterfront just outside Stockholm that will be transformed into 9 apartments by BTH Bostad. I have had the privilege of developing the total interior concepts, kitchens and bathrooms with very free hands for all the apartments. Ruxandra Halleröd at Christian Halleröd Design and Helene Amundsen has done the architecture and I must say that this has been a dream project where we have all really been able to fulfill our visions and pay attention to details..and as for the result I totally want to move in in any of the apartments. You can read all about the project in the latest issue of Residence magazine, pictures by Pia Ulin and renderings by Pixelvalley.

This year I have been working a lot with interior concepts for new build property developments. Last out is two interior concepts for 90 new apartments to be built at Karlbergsvägen 77-79 in Stockholm by Patriam where I have chosen all the interiors – kitchen, bathrooms, wallcolours, floors, materials etc together with Semrén & Månsson architects, here are my mooboards for these projects photographed by Kristofer Johnsson. See the images (renderings) from the project in my portfolio.
Yesterday my dear friend Louise Liljencrantz and KFK Cabinet makers launched their new amazing project The Seed 0117.

I am very much into abstract sculptures at the moment and I love the work of Steven Clark, the sculpture maker of Den holm.
As I have mentioned briefly I am setting up Lotta Agaton Interiors later this fall. I will be working just like before with photoshoots and styling but I have also finally decided to take on some more interior projects.
I have been working quite a lot with selected Interior projects for both residential and commercial spaces over the years but now I am setting up a studio (in my new space at Kungsholmsstrand) with a new team of people to be able to take on more and larger projects. (I am overwhelmed by the response and have received so many job applications I can hardly handle them all, so if you have applied, please bare with me).
We will be doing both large and small scale interior projects and everything from private residences to public spaces and interior concepts for new build developments.
I can’t wait to get it all started with my new upcoming super-team so if you have an exciting interior project in the pipeline please don’t hesitate to contact us for an unconditionally meeting.
Today I am obsessing with Ann Janssons cylinder vessels. Love & want!

In Antwerp I had the privilege of visiting Belgian designer and antiquarian Axel Vervoordts studio and private exhibition. It is located in the surroundings of Kaanal just outside Antwerp where Vervoordt has transformed an old distillery and malting complex to the most amazing housing project and this is also the destination of his own studio and 4 floors high art and furniture collection that was overwhealmingly beautiful. Thank you so much team Vervoordt for your hospitality and for showing us around!
Some of my favorite Swedish furniture icons like this outdoor chair LIV by Jonas Bohlin has been set back in production by Art&fakt.
I kicked off my vacation this year with a Weekend in Antwerp and I must say that I don’t think I have ever gotten so much inspiration in such a short amount of time. One of my favourite places was Graanmarkt 13. I have written about several times before but it is worth a new post. Graanmarkt 13 is a lifestyle store with a very handpicked selection of fashion and interiors, a restaurant and an apartment designed by Vincent van Duysen that used to belong to the owners Tom and Ilse but is now a hotel room.
Oliver Gustav is just about to open their new space at Museumsbygningen in Copenhagen, here are some first glimpses and it all looks amazing,..I can’t wait to pay them a visit.
