For my much needed dose of Scandinavian design I always visited the store Emma b in the heart of the city center of Utrecht, my hometown. I love to walk through the city, have a coffee stop and get inspired by local stores and designers. I’ve been going to the store for years, it’s located on the beautiful historical Oudegracht 218. To see the new collection of mostly Danish brands like Hay, Muuto, Ferm Living and Menu.
The funny part is that I now get my dose of Nordic design almost every day because I work there. It perfectly fits my freelance work as a photographer and interest in Scandinavian lifestyle, design and interior. The store is also part of another lovely store in Utrecht called KECK&LISA, Emma b continues as KECK&LISA Wonen. The Scandinavian atmosphere remains the same, and we added some new brands: Frama, NORR11 and String Furniture.
Since I have worked at the store I have got to know the Finnish brand Marimekko and its ollection much better. Of course, I knew the brand already.. anybody who has a link with Scandinavia has at least one Marimekko item at home. Besides that it’s good design it’s also part of a lifestyle. Their collection is versatile. From tableware, fabrics to clothes and accessories. We are happy to have a big part of the beautiful tableware in store, also the new Terra collection made of beautiful matte brown ceramic. A personal favorite.
On the occasion of the new store name I did a photoshoot with some favorite brands: Marimekko and Ferm Living. Both the Frama Adam Stool and String Pocket as perfect models. It shows how different brands easily can be combined to create a whole new atmosphere. That’s what I like so much about Scandinavian design and all the brands we have at KECK&LISA Wonen. We are not only specialized in accessories, furniture and lighting. We also advice on interior design and styling. Hope to see you there!
