Original Oak Bench by Hubsch

When I saw the image in the catalogue I thought "This bench it's perfect"!
With the simplicity and functionality that characterise the Scandinavian design, this natural oak bench from the Danish brand Hubschhave a really smart design.

The soft cushions at the back and side of the bench are attached to the wooden slats with leather belts, that provides a beautiful contrast to the grey fabric and the natural wood. The cushions turned the bench not only beautiful but also comfortable.

The small shelf that can be used as side table it's that final touch that makes the Hubsch bench a really different furniture piece.

You can find it at Lagoon.

Teaky, the perfect minimalist scandinavian design side table

I'm in love with the new small Teaky table from Lagoon! Teakyis a stunning and versatil round side table made of recycled teak wood and acacia wood.  Small tables as Teaky add decorative touches to the home, and they are extremely functional, you can move them around the house easily, and put them where you need it. 
Teaky can be used it in a corner as a decorative piece, with a vase with your favorite plant, as a bedside table in your bedroom or as a side table in your living room, it's a beautiful support table to put that special book that you're reading. House Doctor Side Table, Teaky, Nature
Definitely this minimalist scandinavian design table will go to my wish list!

A day spent with family appreciating the beauty of the Bacalh√īa Buddha Eden Garden. The visit was not scheduled, I decided to do it when I woke up, and all went well. I took my mother and my daughter, got in the car and in less than a hour we were in a very beautiful and iconic garden in Bombarral.

Mosquito Chair one of the most important pieces of design, a true Icon.

Born in 1920 in Slovenia, Niko Kralj, as become one of the most renown legends of timeless and minimalistic design. His passion for design, the great interest in acquiring new knowledge, his forward-thinking inventions and an eye for useful, but stylish solutions put him on a pedestal on the list of the great furniture designers. He becames without doubt one of the most important designers of the last century.

1953 is the year of the first Rex designs were brought to public light. On top of Kralj projects, is the Mosquito Chair, which got its name because of thin tapering legs and mosquito wings shaped seating surface. The seating surface is cut in the middle and obliquely raised outwards. Due to its technological complexity, but definitely not because of the lack of elegance and comfort, the production of Mosquito started only in 2012. Its unique construction of mounting the chair legs to the seat is patent protected.

Furniture pieces that enhance the space

Today my inspiration comes from Garden Trading brand

When I saw the Hampstead Bench in Natural PE Bamboo with its relaxed elegance that makes us want to bring it right away into our home, I wanted to see the whole Garden Trading Hampstead Bamboo collection.
The collection is Inspired by the clean lines of Scandinavian styling, creating areas which encourage the cultivation of a comfortable lifestyle, and it really inspires you to re-think your selections in your own home. 
The generous curved seat features All-weather Bamboo wrapped onto a Powder Coated Steel frame. This creates a sturdy yet open style weave that is lighter and more eye-catching in appearance than traditional metal or wooden benches. The Hampstead collection have a soft and inviting profile, that creates a calming look and brings elegance to your patio, decking or in the conservatory.
After I explored the collection I also found the Set of 2 Hampstead Chairs. The chairs take inspiration from Danish bucket seats.
