I’m always gushing about Swedish design
cuz it is MAJOR, but it’s time I bring balance
to the blog and give Norway some love.
My husband (and so the children) have a good
percentage of Norwegian in em.
So say hello to
J I P P I!
Created in Paris, Jippi’s aim is to promote Norwegian past
and present design, using skins from Norway,
wood, ceramics, and leather.
Isn’t Jippi all kindza wonderful?
The use of skins is an ancestral tradition
in Scandinavia, harking back to its first inhabitants.
Jippi skins can adorn an armchair or sofa,
be used as a carpet or bedspread,
or even decoration on a wall.
Jippi also offers blankets woven in Norway,
vintage and contemporary ceramics,
china, small furniture and lamps.
These images truly gave me pause
as I studied them and noted the
layers of age, history, and modernity
in the styling.

Hope this finds you well.
*Enter my giveaway which
runs through Christmas*
I am loving having my sons
home from college, baking our traditional
cookies, hosting family, and laughing
more than ever.
Peace to you right where you are.
