A couple of weeks ago a talented friend of mine – Maria Gustavsson the founder of Swedish Ninja dropped by for a fika. Maria’s little boy and my daughter used to be in the same class at school before they moved to Denmark last Autumn (sniff sniff). Maria’s so much fun and when it comes to design, it doesn’t surprise me that the Swedish Ninja way is to ‘create gorgeous, kick-ass designs…with a whole lot of passion and a big sense of humour’ – love that! Swedish Ninja designs include the famous Little Darling table lamp (which made big waves when it launched last year), the new Big Darling floor lamp (doubling up as a dimmable light and clothes stand) and the Zick Zack table designed by Olga Bielawska – out at the end of the month. Here are a few of the designs in my own home – I love them soooo much – oh how great it is to have talented friends!

So pleased! Especially loving the Big Darling, how fab is that? – I might need one in my hall too?!

Thanks for dropping by Maria! 

Have a lovely day!
