Livrest is a new interior brand in Stockholm founded by Claes Dalén, a blogger at Residence. Combining Scandinavian heritage and international aesthetics Livrest’s focus is on excellent craftsmanship and sustainability. Inspired by a deep appreciation of art and books, Livrest has launched with a collection of beautifully understated, functional bookstands. Handcrafted in Sweden and made out of solid wood, the bookstands are available in walnut, cherry and black stained ash.
As you may have noticed from my styling I really treasure my books and love to keep them on display around home. In fact, buying books is my weakness – I always bring home books when I travel and I can spend hours in gallery and museum bookshops looking through the shelves. I also love showcasing the inspiring pages inside the books and this is why the Livrest bookstand has really struck a chord with me. Of course there’s always plenty of interior, art, cooking and design books on my wishlist, so I thought I’d compile some current loves. If you follow me on Instagram you’ll have seen that I already have the This Is Home book by Natalie Walton. A recent addition to my collection, I realised that I haven’t yet featured it on the blog and it’s a must-have for interior-lovers.
