Porcelain cups with faces

A while ago I wrote about House of Rym‘s news for 2014. But I did not show you these which I’ve designed together with my colleague and friend Cecilia Pettersson. The cups are called Oh what a friendly face.

Snaps

Just a couple of snaps from this week. The porcelain is old and new from House of Rym. Some of them are still available in the shop. As well as the Drops- and Polka pillow cases.

It’s Thursday, cold outside and quite wintery.

News from House of Rym 2

I just love Anna Backlund‘s new pattern Heavenly honeycomb, in this post as a blanket. I love all of Anna’s textile patterns for House of Rym but this must be my favorite so far. It will be available in several color settings and also as Ottomans (must have!).

The big tea cup above and the dining plate below is two brand new models for House of Rym’s porcelain collection. The blue pattern Arbour Harbour (still available in yellow) will be my design.

Below, another new porcelain pattern by me named Spot me. Made this one about two years ago, had almost forgot about it. The wonderful names in House of Rym’s collections are named by the excellent copy Maria Melkersson.

Stay tuned for more!

News from House of Rym

Wanted to show you a first peep of House of Rym’s new spring/summer collection for 2014. As you might know Anna Backlund and I has been House of Rym’s main designers since the company started 2011. It has been a fun and giving journey which is still not finished. For the 2014 collection House of Rym has brought in an additional designer to the crew – my colleague and friend Cecilia Pettersson! Yes the same Cecilia who made Fine Little Day Shop‘s poster The forest (also available as wallpaper) and the candy colored Polka pillow cases and kitchen towels. Cecilia has made a bunch of things for the new collection, posters, porcelain and textile. See more at the House of Rym site.

Above, poster by Cecilia Pettersson Welcome to Shroomville. Below teaset by the same, Hypnotique wheat. And cup Shroomville + Anna Backlund’s Sprinkle Sprinkle saucer.

Anna Backlund lives here

I’ve been meaning to visit my friend and colleague Anna for months now. It is ridiculous that it should take so long time even though we live in the same city. Last time I visited, Anna had just moved in and things were not quite in place. I knew that they had done a lot with the house since last time. I did not know that it would look this striking though. I will share this amazing place in pictures with you the coming posts. Starting with the “attic”.

-

The attic was just an ordinary attic when Anna moved in. As you can see things are a bit different now. This floor has turned in to a mini (mini might not be the right word) apartment with a living room, bathroom, kitchen and two rooms for the children.

Built with different sorts of wood. Mostly Spurce and Plywood. The wood surfaces are patched and mixed all over.

The children’s rooms are small but clever planned so the spaces feel airier than they are. The big windows are helping as well. The eldest son has an always ready site-built bunk bed for friends. And just outside the door a generous sofa with Bògòlanfini throws.

.

The Mountain rug is called Flaky fields and is designed by Anna Backlund her self.

.

Always ready for friends, the bunk bed.

-

The other children’s room, for Isidor 11 years old has site-built shelfs, practical for storing and serves as a desk. Drawings above by Nils Kristofersson.

Even though the living takes up the biggest space in the attic nowdays there are still smart solutions for storage.

.

-

Practical sliding doors.

-

As you might know wintertime in Sweden means super few hours of daylight. Yesterday was unusually bright to be in November though, and Anna’s bedroom looked more dreamy than ever.

-

.

People with style has William Morris on the walls, a fact. Here as well.

-

Most of the furnitures in Anna’s home are vintage and inherited items, stylish items.

-

Bear illustration below by Camilla Engman.

-

Anna lives in a so-called “flerfamiljshus” in Swedish, don’t know what you say in English but the gist is that they are two families sharing a house.

-

A dining room corner with an old gate-legged table, brass details, House of Rym porcelain, the “No baby in a corner coffe pot” with Anna’s (she designed it) popular pattern “Tu es la vague”, Acne Paper, a picture wall, loads of patterns, details, textures and second hand finds.

Power flower.

-

The “Seriously cereally” bowls above (my design), out of stock at ours but you can still find them over at House of Rym. The bird pattern above (pillow) might be designed byGunilla Axén but I am not sure, they can be made by Carl Johan de Geer as well who made these birds. Anyone who knows?

UPDATE: The bird pattern on the pillow above is designed by Gunilla Axén and is called “Gåsmarsch”.

Yes of course this household has a great looking bathroom as well. Delicate I would say. I love that Anna’s foutas are laying around here and there, in that way I can mix pleasure with business and mention that you can buy these excellent textiles over at the shop.

Oh and yes, it’s Anna’s design – the foutas.

More of Anna Backlund’s home in coming posts!

The Anna-Backlund-lives-here series continues. Because this place is filled to the brim with excitement.

So, what to say about the kitchen? Well the chairs above are thrifted at Lauritz. Anna bought them recently and got them shipped from Stockholm to Gothenburg. Here similar ones currently for sale at Lauritz. And here some other nice chairs (Hans J. Wegner.) at the same auction site.

I was going to link to these yellow lamps before they sold, unfortunately I was too late.

Straight from the cleaners, ceramic Laundrymats

Lauren Rolwing is an illustrator that have just finished her first line of ceramics called Laundrymat. She created a series of plates inspired by prints, garments and her clumsiness that always leads to spilling things on her clothes, especially coffee. Each plate is created by hand, by imprinting the clay with a garment.

Anyway, glimpses of Anna Backlund’s living room coming up.

The multi-functional fouta

Are there any more practical and beautiful textile than the traditional Tunisian “Fouta”? Useful in so many ways, no matter which time of the year it is. We use them as towels, blankets, and sarongs (excellent to carry along on the trip). The bigger ones we use as bedspreads or cloths and when we went skiing up north at my mother’s place we even wore them as scarfs.

Our foutas in the shop is hand woven and designed by my friend Anna Backlund/House of Rym. I love them all, but maybe “Remebering the Tartans” (top and bottom in this post) is in the lead at the moment.

Above, the Sur la Plage fouta.
