What happens when two architects furnish the home that they live in? Both of them transformed their historic 150 square-meter apartment in Frederiksberg, Copenhagen into a beautiful and alluring home with a modern touch. The open spaces make the whole place feel airy and fresh.
They used an eclectic mixture of mid-century Scandinavian furniture, contemporary furniture, auction finds and pieces from the owner’s home in South Africa. On the other hand, the dining table is custom-made from steel. The master bedroom and kitchen have access to a balcony where herbs, strawberries and tomatoes are grown.
The bluish-grey walls give off a calming vibe and help the house occupants wind down after a long day outside. Coupled with plywood panelling, it gives a warm and homey touch. One wall is kept distressed as a nod to the place’s past.
If you paid attention, you’ll notice artworks adorn each room as well.
In the kitchen, it follows an industrial style with copper details. The end result is a modern kitchen which a very clean look.
Nordic Design spotted the following furniture and décor in the house:
- Formakami lamp by Jaime Hayon, &Tradition
- Mayor sofa by Arne Jacobsen/Flemming Lassen, &Tradition
- J39 dining chairs by Borge Mogensen, Fredericia
- Circle Shade pendant lamp by Frama
- Stainless steel pitcher by Henning Koppel, Georg Jensen
- Era armchair by Thonet
Overall, it’s a very nice home to live in and no wonder it appeared in several publications such as Elle Decoration Denmark. Fortunately, it’s available to rent through Airbnb* so there’s a chance to stay in it too!
