Scandinavian Spacious Attic Apartment Sizzles with Pristine Charm

For big cities, space is definitely becoming a premium, but it seems that this trend is spreading to smaller centers and towns as well. That’s why designers and architects, and even clients, are quickly coming up with creative ideas and innovative design schemes which will turn even the dullest corner into a vibrant room.

An example is this 55 sqm Swedish apartment. While not exactly cramped on space, it is a great example of how one can maximize what is on offer by using smart ideas, a great color pallet (usually white for Scandinavian apartments) and appropriate décor.

Solid Wood Stools by Karim Rashid for Riva1920

Riva 1920 is passionate about working with solid wood – so it’s no wonder that the Fiore and Delta stools designed by Karim Rashid were quickly swept up by the brand. Both stools are fun and unconventional with loads of personality. Both are made from solid cedar wood. Fiore clearly resembles a flower, each outer unit reminding us of a petal. Delta can remind us of many things, one being change due to its random shape, another could it be its vague reference to triangles or maybe a split of some kind, if we’re considering its name, that is. Either way, these stools boast highly original designs. They make great accent pieces that are not only good for sitting on, but that could also warm a space and instill intrigue. Find out more at Riva1920.
