the Apartment in Copenhagen

This weekend I visited the amazingly beautiful showroom the Apartment. It is, as the name suggests, located in an apartment in the area called Christianshavn, just next to the canal. It’s my favourite area in Copenhagen, and not far from where I used to live! The area was originally built by dutch immigrants and you can clearly see the dutch influences in the architecture.

I have visited the Apartment a few times over the years and it is always really inspiring! This time they had an exhibition called Mingei with Japanese craft objects, curated by Terry Ellis.

The Japanese ceramics and textiles are displayed in a lovely mix with vintage Scandinavian and contemporary pieces.

I really love the mix of colors, patterns and textures.

And the mix of different ethnical patterns from different times. Here a vintage Swedish rug from the early 1920’s together with a chair with African textile! Wonderful!

Sorry for the poor quality of the photos… they are taken with my phone.

My dog Kakan was not too happy about the exhibition…
