- Malibu console/ dressing table for it's elegant design and versatile use, could be used in the hallway or in your bedroom with an addition of a mirror.
- Vaquero Cowhide Rug 160x230cm - This patchwork cow skin rug is my favourite from our carpet selection for it's geometry and adding artisanal touch to the living room.
- Berlin Armchair - This bentwood armchair is a great example of traditional craftsmanship translated into the modern design.
- Nopp Dining Chair - I adore the tonal interiors and how versitile this armchair is. It could be used in the dining area, as a home office chair or in the hallway. Any other ideas for it's placement?
- Janson Sofa - Organic leg shape and soft corners for creating a cosy living room, just looking at it makes me want to sink into it's pillows with a blanket and a book. Or is it just February talking?

Katya has her eyes on:
- Hugo 3 seater Sofa-bed in Linen - This Mid-Century Modern sofa-bed is simply everyone's favourite, you can't blame me for jumping the band-wagon.
- Ulla Coffee Table Converting into Dining Table 120/140cm - Coffee table-turn-dining table for a smaller apartment. Need I say more?
- Armchair in Natural Linen - Just your classic French-style armchair that will make you feel like you are in Provence when you look at it. Just add a vase full of lavender and a glass of Chardonnay for the full effect.
- Array Highboard in Natural Wood - Clean lines and simplicity of this highboard calls for a Scandinavian interior, but also would work wonderfully with a more complex interior style.
- Foret Deux Floor Lamp / Room Divider - Is it a sculpture? Is it a room divider? It is a floor light that can do both: fill the room with the soft light and separate the spaces in a creative way.
- Conservatory Window-Pane Mirror - Anything that can visually expand the space is a winner in my eyes. This striking industrial style mirror set in a metal frame is a great accessory for classic interiors or lofty environment.
- Fabriano Rug 160x230cm Pearl - Abstract rug could save any space and give it the needed cosyness without distracting from the furniture.
