Lisa Bengtsson is from Gnosjö in Southern Sweden. Illustrator/designer/graphic powerhouse — she rose to fame in Sweden and internationally with her whimsical line of wallpapers. Her most popular, Familjen (“The Family” — as seen below), features empty picture frames inviting people to fill them in with their own treasures.

I love this design. I can see using it across the whole back wall of the shop. Here’s a room with the same paper.

What REALLY got me going were some other designs I found on her Website. She has a line of kitchen towels with some of her wonderful illustrations. And being a dachshund owner and lover of all things dachshund, these had Vince and I laughing out loud. Love them!


Lempi is a new “universal drinking glass”, designed by the Swedish designer Matti Klenell for the Fiskars Group iitalia brand.

Meaning ‘favorite’ in Finnish, Lempi has been created for any occasion, informal or formal. Inspired by life in a typical Stockholm city apartment, the stackable stemware offers generous servings without taking up too much space.

The Lempi glass is strong enough to be used every day and elegant enough to be considered for that special occasion.

It comes in 4 soft colors which I think would look beautiful on any table, in any style of home.
