Last week I styled this beautiful turn of the century apartment for Fantastic Frank in Berlin. The place was very light and the original ceiling ornaments were all preserved. The walls had this very light grey color that reflected the light coming from the big old windows and the living room had this darker grey module which could be used as a built in closet.
I had the opportunity to work together with Berlin based design company New Tendency for this project. There designs have a very clear aesthetic and functional form, which contrasted very nicely with the delicate ornaments and the white waxed floors of the flat. In both the kitchen and the living room you can see their iconic Meta side table, which with it’s versatile design can be used in the living or bedroom (or in this case also in a niche in the wall where normally a fridge should go).
The sleek silhouette of the Black Masa table in the kitchen went very nicely with the &Tradition chairs and in the both rooms you can see a Shift shelving system which consist out of modular elements. They can be stacked on top of each other without screws and moved horizontally. On the shift shelf in the kitchen you can see the Plug Lamp by Atelje Lyktan and above that the Paris elevations print by Studio Esinam. Staying in the french theme, in the living room I hung up a vintage map of France and used the Meta side table as a bar. On the chair you can see a Mountain pillow, made by Berlin based Icelandic design couple Markrun, who are by the way giving away a set of mountain pillows on their Facebook page if you are interested.
The Teesta rug in the living room and the blanket on the sofa are from Urbanara and are now making my living room cozy and ready for winter. On the ceiling you can see the Bergmann light fixture, which I also used in this bedroom styling and the desk is made from the beautiful Normann Copenhagen buk legs. I love the way they look in combination with the vintage chair and the white floor.
