Lapuan Kankurit at Scandihome

I may be biased (in fact I know that I am), but there’s something about the quality of Finnish (and more broadly speaking Nordic/Scandinavian) products that is just extraordinary. One reason might be that many Nordic brands have a history going back decades, if not centuries. It takes time to fine tune a product and these companies have done just that. Take Lapuan Kankurit, for example; a Finnish textile company with roots going back 100 years. They are well-known for their amazing textiles, including sauna towels, bed linen, aprons and much more. From impeccable packaging to the best quality linen I’ve ever come across with, Lapuan Kankurit has every detail tuned to perfection.

This beautiful Maija blanket is designed by Lapuan Kankurit and made in Finland (!) It’s become an instant favourite of ours and one that we will treasure for years to come.  I couldn’t think of anything more comforting than a soft blanket and sunshine on a day that I’m recovering from a cold.

Lapuan Kankurit kindly gifted me this product along with a couple of others, so stay tuned for more posts soon!

New Office Space with BEdesign

I can’t think of anything more inspiring than a successful business run by young entrepreneurs. Having grown up in a family of businesses, I have the utmost respect for those who have the courage to believe in their dreams and make them a reality. Hence I was deeply impressed to discover a Finnish brand BEdesign. Run by sisters Bette and Cilla, BEdesign is all about high quality, functional design. The sisters started the company in 2012 and have expanded their product selection steadily ever since. Bette is responsibly for the product design, whilst Cilla looks after the business development.

These Lume trestle legs from BEdesign are possibly the most versatile piece of furniture in my entire home. I have had many makeshift offices in the past and often move my desk around our home depending on different projects. Nothing better than a desk you can pack up or move around as you please! As a big bonus, all BEdesign products are made in Finland!

I’m in love with my new desk and once we get the flooring sorted, the office space will be my favourite spot in the house. Stay tuned!

The trestle legs were kindly sent to me as gift by BEdesign. As always, all opinions are my own! Take a look at the rest of their beautiful product selection here.
