Robert the Robot!

Since we open the shop Swedish KG Design has been a part of Spektakulär. I am pretty sure most of you do have the super silicone flower-, lace- or splat coasters as well as the happy Owl money banks.

However KG does so much more and we have had quite a lot of their designs in over the years which we all love and I have them everywhere in my own house. Happy colour bowls, doorstops, bottle stoppers, coasters, tea towels. But now they have introduced a new fellow and we are extremely happy with the response so far. Already had to reorder Robert and also took the opportunity to add a few new colours. Personally I love the yellow one but could not find a proper image, just have to pop in to the shop and have a look for your self :) All images are borrowed from KG Design!

Silicone money banks sure are a functional design, Stina is in to counting her money at the moment, just learned about it at nursery and she is saving up for something special. As all of you with kids know it is important to teach our children about money and she seem to enjoy the whole saving up idea. She earns a little money now and then and even if it is just pennies they mean the world to her and she like to recount all her money again (about 12.50 at the moment I believe) and this money bank is handy since the head comes off, easy to clean and also wont break if you drop it. I have a memory of my younger brother smashing all of ours. Walked downstairs to find all our beautiful (not really) big pigs in thousands of pieces. Most of these were christening gifts! Yay! Not really remember my mums reactions but since I kind of know my mum (and turned out to be just like her… arrgggghhhh), I assume she was not impressed!

Have a lovely day

Pappelina the perfect gift for Christmas…

Really a plastic rug for Christmas! Of course why not…it will last!

As you know Pappelina is a brand we love, and are so happy to stock in our little shop. It is one of the brands I am extremely passionate about and I am more than pleased to see how popular it has become during the years.

A plastic rug by Pappelina is a Scandi as it gets really. Plastic rugs were big in the 40’s and 50’s Sweden and re introduced in early 2000 by Lina Richardsson. Back in the days they were everywhere and when I visit my grandmothers and parents I see the classic rugs everywhere in their homes. Plastic rugs on wooden floors well it sure is Swedish. Plastic rugs and ragrugs, fabric rugs made by left over or old clothing. In my grandparents summer house (where I spent all my summers as a child) they were everywhere. Easy to clean and kept the floors warm. The patterns were classic subtle neutral tones and stripes.

Pappelina brought back the plastic rug and is using environmental friendly plastic made in Sweden. The rugs are made in Sweden and their designs are happy contemporary. The classic plastic rug but with cheerful patterns and of course our Scandi stripes.

The rugs are flying out to new homes, and already a few more on order. We have decided to place one last order this year and it will happen quite soon since we need to have this order delivered in before Christmas. Last day will be this Sunday 2nd and it is a perfect opportunity to place an order as a Christmas gift. Why not spoil a loved one with a lovely cheerful doormat or a large happy rug for the kitchen. Are you thinking that a plastic rug is a silly gift, well you could not be more wrong. They will last and be there for a long time and keep your home happy.

During the last few years Pappelina has introduced cushions and beautiful warm blankets as well. Why not browse their website and see what you could ask from Santa this year!

Pop in to the shop, have a feel or give us a ring on  0131 629 0941 or email hello@spektakular.co.uk for more information. Remember last date is Halloween! Order after that will take place in February March after we have seen their Spring 2015 news :)
