Here at Sola Kitchens, we are having a bathroom and hallway cabinetry sale! You didn’t expect that from us now, did you? Even though we have done bathrooms in addition to kitchens for clients in the past, our focus has always been kitchens, kitchens and more kitchens. However, on a recent visit to our manufacturers in Sweden, we came across one of their bathroom ranges that was being discontinued, we were all over it! Beautiful, golden, solid oak, stainless steel knobs and glass doors – these furniture are beautiful!

The tall unit above is perfect for hallway storage as well as bathroom storage, holding anything from gloves, scarves, towels and bath salt!

The Scandinavian design team continues in London. At the weekend 8-9 October 2011, the yearly Scandinavian Show takes place at Earls Court. The show will offer a diverse programme with a range of exhibitors showing off Scandinavian design and food. There will also be live entertainment with music, dance and the chance to meet the stars Sofie Gråbøl and Søren Malling from the BBC4 crime hit ‘The Killing’! For more information, look at http://www.scandinaviashow.co.uk/index.html

The yearly London Design Festival is now in full speed. Between 17 and 25 September, London is bubbling of fantastic design events, and Scandinavian design is one of the main focus area. Scandinavian design has been popular in the UK for a long time and there is a constant stream of new Scandinavian products available. But what is the reason that the Brits are so in love with Scandinavian design? Apparently it is all down to the concept of Hygge.

Hygge is a Danish expression that translates roughly as “wellbeing” but in fact embraces all things simple, warm, cosy, calm and comforting. And it’s apparently the hygge-factor that may explain why we are so in love with Scandinavian design!
