As we speak Dutch furniture company Gelderland presents its collection at the IMM Cologne. This year in a warm and inviting atmosphere. A place where every visitor of Design Post will feel at home. A blend of warm colors combined with soft materials provide a relaxed and comfortable feeling. Gelderland stimulates the creation of a personal and modern style of living. Which is reflected in the many opportunities. With a flexible modular sofa, lounge chairs, dinning chairs and a pouf. In addition there is a wide choice of colors, fabrics and materials. Paying close attention to detail, comfort and quality.
During the fair successful existing models will be presented. Such as the 6905 modular sofa by Scholten & Baijings. A young and talented design duo that created a powerful concept with attention to craftsmanship and functionality. And a characteristic interior can’t do without a real design classic. Designed by Jan des Bouvrie during the seventies, lounge chair Meneer Oberman: a real eye catcher!
Greens should not be missed in a cozy interior. I’m pleased the botanic trend is back and still relevant. Plants provide a healthy environment and a beautiful contrast in a modern interior. Since a couple of years I’m the happy owner of a Gelderland 6905 sofa in chocolate brown. Which fits well with the succulents and cactuses in my home and provide a comfy and more personal look in a mainly white interior. You can make a statement with one big plant or create a collection of small greens.
Latest models at the IMM Cologne
During this edition of the IMM Cologne there’s special attention to the latest models and the extension of the successful 4800 series. Designer Henk Vos stands for minimalism. Simple, clean and timeless. Reflected in a new model the 4800 Cl XL, an extension of the famous and popular 4800 series. Only two modular elements are needed to arrange a beautiful corner sofa. The slim and graceful legs were already available in aluminum. New is the ability to perform the legs in black.
The new 7805 series by Jan des Bouvrie is inviting and comfortable. He has been working for Gelderland for 35 years now. This designer is responsible for several well-known designs. New Illusion is equipped with the familiar solid foundation but comes with a surprising new look. The large flexible cushions are casual yet stylish.
Besides straight lines there’s a focus on organic forms as well. The new collection 7830 is reminiscent of the Scandinavian trend, which is still in progress. Simplicity, shape and finish are decisive. Dick Spierenburg designed a collection with a modern and friendly appearance. The wooden legs are mounted directly to the metal frame. A construction which ensures strength and durability. This series includes a sofa, armchair and pouf available in both fabric and leather.
Stool Particle is now available in two new variants. Previously there was the 7660 model, striking because of the use of a special folding technique. A particular lifestyle object emerged from a creative collaboration between designers Ferry Meewisse en Tom Dissel. This time Tom Dissel is solely responsible for the design of the 7665 and 7666. Attention to shape, material and detail characterize the products of this young designer. The stools invite to experiment and give the interior a quirky and playful character.

Stylish Coisa Shawl
By far my favourite way to stay warm this winter: hidden in a soft Coisa shawl in dark grey. Made of 100% wool, big enough to wear it both as a shawl and wrap. Actually, there are many ways to wear it. Sometimes I even use it as a small blanket. It’s not an extreme cold winter in The Netherlands so far, I miss the snow.. On rainy days, it’s a bit chilly though. Previous winters I wore heavy woolen vests, now I prefer layers. Dutch brand Coisa designs unique scarves in limited editions. Made of exclusive yarns from Italy. All shawls and cols are manufactured fair trade in small studios in Portugal, Turkey, Belgium and the Netherlands. A Coisa shawl is stylish, timeless and very comfortable.
Free Coisa Col or Men
If you could use some extra warmth this is your chance. If you place an order in the online shop within the next two weeks you will receive a Coisa Col or Men for free. For yourself or to make someone else happy. Coisa always delivers the products beautifully packaged in a cardboard giftbox.

Bright Kitchen Inspiration
Guess these long and grey winter days made me long for some bright interior inspiration. This kitchen got my eye because of the light and open atmosphere. It’s part of a total transformation of a Victorian home in Melbourne, Australia. Designed by Annabelle Berryman and Sarah Henry of Studio Four. I find the neutral colour palette of white and grey in combination with a touch of nature in the pale timber very beautiful.
“We chose American oak because of its soft colour and uniform grain, and also because it was suitable for the combined kitchen island and dining bench” (architect Sarah Henry).
The wall of open steel shelving along the length of the kitchen is visually appealing. A great way to display and storage beautiful kitchen accessories and tableware. The designers of Studio Four used the materials and space available in a creative and practical way. The kitchen island extends into a dining table (surrounded by the Elbow dinning chairs by Hans J. Wegner for Carl Hansen & Sons). The storage cabinets at bench level also makes the space look bigger. The floors, kitchen island and stools were custom made. I love the well thought out use of materials and the attention to details in this aesthetic yet very inviting interior.
The kitchen view from outside, accessible via sliding doors. The outdoor dining area is provided with sturdy concrete pavers, a wooden garden table including a bench and a white painted brick exterior wall. Seems perfect for long and cozy days.

Giveaway I Share What I See print
Let’s start January with a little present from me to you. Just because I feel like it.. More than a year after I started blogging in 2010 I created a blog slogan. This was the beginning of the quote as it is today. For me it represents the essence of blogging. Photography is part of my daily life now, for both fun and work. Capturing special and everyday moments to develop an eye for beautiful details, light and shapes. And, of course, share it with you on this blog and via Instagram. Last year I decided to make a analog version of these words. The print is 42 centimeters high and 29,5 centimeters wide. Made of 300 mg recycled paper.
How to win?
All you have to do is leave a comment in the section below. Within one week I will randomly choose 3 winners for the ‘I Share What I See’ print (without a frame). The winners will be contacted via email. Good luck!

Architecture Vipp Shelter
In one word.. wow. Regular readers know that I love architecture and design, especially when it’s Scandinavian made. This 55 square meter shelter made of galvanized steel designed by the Danish brand Vipp stole my heart. Don’t we all dream of a place like this? To escape from everyday life now and then, far hidden in the Nordic woods. Back to (design) basics with sliding glass doors and skylight windows to enjoy the view both day and night. The shelter consists of a large kitchen with a dining and living area, separate bathroom and a loft area. Fully equipped with – naturally – a Vipp kitchen, bathroom and home accessories. Inside the wall and ceilings are fitted with wool felt covered plywood panels to stay warm on winter days.
“There is plenty of amazing architecture out there, but we wanted to conceive something different rooted in who we are. So we used our 75 years of experience with steel processing to craft an escape in the form of a prefabricated object designed down to the last detail, where the only choice left to the customer, is where to put it”. (Morten Bo Jensen, chief designer)
The first prefabricated shelter is located somewhere on a still secret location in the nature of Sweden. The Vipp shelter is however intended for locations anywhere in the world. No need to worry about colours, materials or kitchen modules. Everything is chosen on beforehand, leave that up to Vipp!
