Brands Scandinavia Fall/Winter 2011

Brands Scandinavia is proud to present the luscious colors and great new ideas of the Fall/Winter 2011 collection. Their new products invite you to change the mood at home or perk up the office space.

Each Brands Scandinavia item is a story about its designer. The talent behind the Fall/Winter 2011 collection includes Erik Bruun, Teemu Järvi, Eero Aarnio, Ristomatti Ratia, Päivi Jokelainen and Anne Vasko.

Robust, relaxed

Brands Scandinavia products are designed for everyday living. Think of them as your favorite pair of jeans that you like more and more each passing day, month and year. Brands Scandinavia’s home textiles and furnishings, accessories, bags and stationery help you make every day an enjoyable experience. Brands Scandinavia brings fun, uncomplicated moments to your life.

Soothing Presence

The Brands Scandinavia collection is built around two themes: Presence and Urban Mood. Presence is inspired by Northern nature: sand, water, earth, ice, snow. With summer turning to fall, the collection is punctuated and enhanced by the beautiful shades of October leaves. Presence is about clean form and natural materials.

A masterful graphic designer Erik Bruun lives on the Suomenlinna fortress island off Helsinki’s coastline. With its beautiful nature and wildlife, Suomenlinna has been an inspiration for Bruun’s Feather bedding. The printed down pattern evokes restful dreams while the crisp cotton is durable and comfortable.

Teemu Järvi’s Pumpkin oil lamp has a timeless, fluid shape. The transparent glass sphere forms an elegant home for the flame and creates a quiet calm around itself.




Vivid and colorful Urban Mood

Urban Mood contrasts and complements Presence, bringing bold colors and new materials into the mix. The Fall 2011 Urban Mood collection features full, delicious shades of blue, aqua, burnt sienna, deep red, and dark chocolate.

Eero Aarnio, internationally famous since the 1960’s, is recognized for his use of modern materials and playful designs. The humorous creatures of Zoo appear in felt wall decorations, notebooks, laptop bags and bedding.

Ristomatti Ratia’s Stuff storage containers make clutter management a breeze. Storage cases zip close and they are perfect anywhere where chaos is trying to take over. Stuff is extra durable and will also be a great help when moving. When the cases are not in use, they fold flat.

Bold colors and carefree canvas define Cargo, a new line of bags and cushion covers by Päivi Jokelainen. An enzyme wash treatment makes the material soft and pliable, yet retains durability. Cargo is equally beautiful both home and away.

Anne Vasko’s jotters and sketchbooks are illustrated with her signature combination of sharp lines and watercolor-like color hues. The naturalistic themes, such as Northern Lights, Little Garden and Spirit of the Forest inspire thoughts of happy memories, of friends and laughter.
