Weird designs and how to combine them
Lately, things are allowed to be a bit weird. At least, that’s what some Northern brands suggest, showcasing objects with a handmade feel. Of course, only in a figurative sense. Because the beautiful vases and trinkets would quickly break otherwise.
Ferm Living designs are a little wonky on purpose. Take a closer look and you’ll discover off-centre struts on the «Basket» or dents on the «Pond» mirror. And the angle of the vase «Water Swirl» makes me wonder if it’s about to fall over.
Bloomingville’s current collection has a similiar tendency. The «Helene» and «Harris» designs look like they’ve overflown. Almost like candle wax that’s poured over the edges. The design is emphasised by the muted colours and smooth surfaces of the materials used.
It’s precisely these random-looking silhouettes that make the trendy pieces so quirky. They stand out from the straight-sided uniformity. The model «Pawn» by Serax looks a lot more exciting next to the basic cylinder ceramic stool. At the same time, it’s as practical as an ordinary stool and serves as a side table.
You can let the quirky designs speak for themselves. But they have even more of an effect when combined. Try arranging some irregularly shaped and different sized decorative accessories in a group on the table or the window sill. If you add some simple geometric shapes, the asymmetrical stand out even more.
