Subtle Show Stoppers

Ok, confession time.  When I first worked for Charlotte, my taste in interiors was quite far removed from anything you would find in Spektakular. I am so glad that the interview process didn’t involve her coming to my house to check me out (it was actually just a case of smiling a lot and offering her sweets but that’s another story…) However, just as my dad’s love of swing music eventually seeped into my soul against my will, Spektakular’s stock quickly did the same. Here we have a perfect example…

Lindform is a Swedish family business started in 2007. They have since then grown to be a brand that is synonymous with Scandinavian design and quality. Their products can be found in design boutiques, hotels and restaurants around Scandinavia and Europe. The inspiration for the company comes from Scandinavian nature with its organic tones and simple shapes.  The collection also contains influences from Japan, whose minimalist style matches well with the Nordic design

These individually handmade ceramics are small in stature (most stand at around 10cm high) but big in style. Each piece can take up to 8 processes to get the design to the right standard and because they are hand decorated, no two pieces are identical (although you sometimes have to look very hard such is the skill of the artists!) Beautifully minimalist as single pieces, they also look lovely in small groups (I’d always go for an odd number a bit like planting a garden!) The slim neck detail of  many of the vases makes them most suited to displaying a single stem. For real impact, group them together with similar single flowers or herbs – lavender is a favourite of ours in Spektakulär, even one stem packs a fragrant punch!

The range is mainly vases but also includes candle holders and plates, all in the signature organic style.
