When you go shopping do you find you have a handful of ‘go to’ brands / shops which you can almost guarantee will have something you’ll love? One of mine is Danish brand By Malene Birger. Founder, Malene Birger sold her share in 2010, and left By Malene Birger in 2014. And now the designer and artist is relaunching her Interior and Design brand BIRGER1962 in January at Maison et Objet in Paris – oh yassss! To celebrate, Malene opened the doors of her flat in South Kensington, London to Danish photographer Birgitta Wolfgang and stylist Pernilla Vest. And what a treat! The space is decorated with finds from all over the world and expresses her unique and eclectic style beside her own art work. I remember reading once that Malene loves to move home often – and yet seeing this space tells me that she truly goes all out to make each house a home. Here’s a peek inside her office and sitting room!
Such a striking apartment! I love that it has an entirely unique look and feel. It’s the kind of place you could potter around for hours, studying all the objects. It makes me so excited to see what’s in store for BIRGER 1962 – how about you?
Word on the street is that she’s also opening a showroom in Copenhagen in April 2018 which will feature both her interior and design brand as well as her small clothing brand A JOURNEY London (designed, created and based on the idea of packing a suitcase and presenting two small collection per year just before the holiday season begins). A trip over the Öresund bridge is so on the cards for me April ’18!!
