You’ve heard of Hygge, yes? Said Hooga, apparently – is the Danish art of getting cosy and happy with candles and blankets and good food and good friends. Log fires and hot chocolate and twinkly lights and long chats – no wonder it’s all the rage right now, it sounds awesome. Here in Blighty, September’s always a busy time – after the slow, summer pace of August, life suddenly hits you in the face with back to school, back to work, back to alarm clocks and routines – which, sometimes, is a good thing. But people do start to think about Autumn, about cosying up and feathering their nests for winter, getting some Hygge going in our own way…and with that in mind we’ve started bringing a few extra little somethin’ somethin’s to our markets -woolly blankets and squishy cushions, to be precise!
We tried it out at Bethnal Green at the beginning of the month:
Can you see those orange, pink and brown cushions on the blue Ercol Tall Backs? Made from fantastic vintage fabric with brand new plumptious (hey, it’s Roald Dahl’s fault) feather pads, they flew out of our hands so quickly I didn’t get a proper photo of them!
So this weekend, when we visit The Paintworks in Bristol with The Vintage Home Show, we’ll be bringing more –
Along, of course, with a fab selection of furniture to put them on:
So we hope to see you there, 11am-4pm 🙂
