The Art of Danish "hygge"

A friend of mine introduced me to this word. Its hard to pronounce ( pronounced hooga ) and yet easy to explain. To me it means a place of cosines and your zen like space. So it got me thinking now that my little one is in school, how do I achieve this. I called up my friends to meet for a cuppa tea and a joe, took a few walks and finally got home and settled into my favorite comfy chair. My "hygge" was achieved! 

For those who haven't had the time, make the time. And while you are at it check out my favorite "hygge" pieces in our store. Tell me...whats your "hygge"?

We are now on Instagram

We just launched our instagram page yesterday and we are super excited to share pictures of the super cool MCM items we now sell in our store. This is a rare pair of lounge chairs model 290A highback with ottoman and model 290 lowback designed by Hans Wegner for GETAMA in 1953. The model 290 is one of Hans Wegner's most iconic and sought after designs with the solid oak frame, splayed legs and distinctive paddle armrests. Original leather versions of the 290 are not common and this pair in hunter green is simply stunning and is in excellent condition. Your friends will be envious! $7600 for the pair.
