Woollie Wanderings

Been away.....work meeting in Odense, Denmark. Cold and snowy......not the best light for photos, mostly taken walking to the meeting at 830am and home at 5pm, and not a lot of time for photos but I did manage to sneak in a few.






Managed in the spare hour or so to track down some design items.....unaffordable, but desirable.

Tom Dixon Lights

Arne Jacobsen Egg Chairs


A bit of an "eggomaniac"!


And a few little things that did come home with me:



And a couple of mugs from Marimekko's In Good Company Range.

Oops!

Sounds fun! And you are not the only eggomaniac in existence, believe me! ;)

Did you visit "Tante Grøn"? The yarn shop on the main street?

My father went to Odense once and he love it, I can see why! Thanks for passing by;)

I've been wishing I could visit Denmark lately and you were there! I think you should have bought an egg chair... it looks comfortable! Is their lifestyle any different from yours? I just wonder why they are considered the happiest people on earth.

Visited Odense a few years ago, in the summer. It was great. We go til Denmark every year cause my sister lives there, I love it.

It seems that you love scandinavia design! Me too:)
I love the photos you took, they are beautiful.

Do you reckon those bicycles are just parked there for show, or perhaps until spring time? Do Danes really ride their bicycles in the snow??
