One of my favourite brands, for both clothes and interiors, is the Danish DAY Birger et Mikkelsen. The DAY HOME winter collection of 2009 is, as always, well-thought-through and absolutely stunning in its perfect colour mixes.
The atmosphere is cozy, intellectual – a little messy, inviting and warm. You want to stay at home with the fireplace on, read books, drink toddyÂ´s, maybe start knitting a sweater to a loved one. The colors of the season are WARM with red, pink and purple, COLD with blue and army and an ethnic GOLD to tie them all together.
This latest collection includes a piece of furniture I’ve fallen helplessly in love with – the Conversation Sofa. A velvet sofa with a warm purple-aubergine hue that is totally consistent with DAY’s inspirational thoughts: I want to stay home in that sofa, with the fireplace on, read a book, drink toddyÂ´s, and maybe start knitting a sweater to a loved one. All winter long…
The DAY sofa measures 200 X 80 X 100 cm and has a pricetag of approx Â£2500 (29 900 SEK).
