Design Museum Denmark

Danish Design - I Like it! exhibition at Design Museum Denmark.

This is one cool exhibition that I would love to check out - Jasper Morrison has curated and designed this 'Danish Design - I Like it!' exhibition for Design Museum Denmark in Copenhagen. This has been conceived to celebrate the name change of the museum (previously known as 'Kunstindustrimuseet' - that was a good move) as well as the cool design history that Denmark has. Love the use of textiles on the back panels as well as the colours. I'd also want to leave with most of furnishings too...

I Like...

Reclaimed wood bench and dining table from Canvas.

Reclaimed wood mirror. Cute dog.
I like...these cool recycled solid cedar furnishings from Canvas. The solid cedar wood is salvaged from New York City rooftop water tanks, which means they have a great natural aged patina finish. It's always great to see sustainability done so well and so stylishly. Photographs via Canvas.

More Designer Royal Wedding Tea Towels...

Kate 'n' Wills by Charlotte Farmer for New House Textiles.

Cath Kidston Royal Wedding tea towel.

Corgi Royal Wedding from To Dry For.

Right Royal Knees Up from Ted Baker.

Some more Royal Wedding commemorative tea towels from several designers - it's no surprise that most of these are now out of stock. Enjoy the Royal Wedding tomorrow - hope you're wearing your tiara and pearls.

Royal Wedding Tea Towels

C&W Royal Wedding tea towel

William & Catherine Royal Wedding tea towel
 Well, thank goodness the Royal Family belatedly approved to have tea towels allowed as souvenirs for the Royal Wedding - previously they were off the list of commemorative items as they were considered 'too disposable'. There have been many designs and it's great to see that not all of them are stuffy. I like these ones from John Lewis - classic and simple.
