:: if you have read my profile you know why I chose the name red.house. In the past few days many people have asked me more about this special red paint. and the fact is, I didn't even know that much about the history of the red paint. so I decided to look it up.
if you are curious to learn more ...here isa link to wikipedia [in Swedish]on the history of Falu Rödfärg. Unfortunately, I couldn't find the exact same information in English but here is a link to a short paragraph in English falurodfarg.com.
: : I will always be devoted to Swedish China company Rörstrand and Finnish glasscompany Iittala , today all part of Hackman AB. Growing up, my dad[pappa] was working for Hackman. Learning about and living with beautiful glass and ceramic objects every day was wonderful, and I feel so connected to these brands and even more so to their products. Origo, by Alfredo Häberli [iittala], is an icon piece in my day. I wake up and have my first sip of water out of my Origo cup, and I keep one at my desk at the office for some added color.
: : Anna Kraitz, Swedish product and furniture designer based in Stockholm designed these colorful teacups. " The objects in this series have been compared to a family. Each with it's own personality yet sharing a relating resemblance " www.launchdesignpartner.com
The cups are called YOU, part of the same serie is cookie tray DESERVE and teapot LUST. Visit scandinavian design online to purchase [ another wonderful place to be].
