The wondrous and wonderful Miranda July, a stunning new voice in, well, film, art, performance, literature…While she is finding it difficult or rather unnecessary to confine herself to a single genre, her work is instantly recognizable by an unmistakable charm and humor that can inject the everyday with a surprising magic.

Klippan Billgren Wool Blanket

Oh my, are you not completely smitten with these blankets? I sure am; the only difficulty is choosing between them.

Over the years, Klippan’s designers have created new patterns that have been well appreciated and this year is no exception. This year Klippan asked Ernst Billgren to design an anniversay blanket to celebrate Klippan’s 15th year since they launched their first wool blanket using almost fogotten production techniques. Ernst Billgren is regarded as one of Sweden’s most treasured artists. He is also a member o fthe Swedish Art Academy since 1997. Unique in his diversity, his designs often reflect nature, mythology and national romanticism. The Billgren blanket an incredible work of art in itself, is available in Brown/Beige and Black/Grey 100% Wool .

51.1″ (130 cm) x 70.7″ (180 cm)

Muse collection by Mae Engelgeer

I’m completely smitten with Mae Engelgeer’s Muse Collection, especially the white and black bow pillow (not shown) and throw (bottom left). If they didn’t cost slightly more than I am willing to pay, they’d both be shipping to my house right this very second.

The collection consist out of throws and cushions in different sizes. This series is a celebratory ode to her muse, the decorative symbol the bow.The fabrics are all double sides and made out of mohair, thick acrylic and lurex yarns. The fabrics she created are manufactured in the Textile Museum in Tilburg.The colours al mingles into a happy and colourful but still very stylish mix, and the plaids look like precious jewels in object of arts.

Virtue Blanket

As some of you might be aware, wedding season is fast approaching. If you’re looking for a gift for upcoming nuptials, you should (of course) get them something off their registry. However, if the couple has thumbed their noses at the tradition of registering (or if you’re a stickler for putting thought and effort into every gift), then maybe something like this would be a perfect thing to wish them well.

“The Virtue blanket (155 cm x 210 cm) is finely knitted using high quality, undyed Icelandic wool. It warms us, at the same time reminding us to be virtuous. The pattern is derived from the decorations on the virtue cloths reworked in a contemporary style, but with the historical background of the virtue cloths in mind. It is a symmetrical, abstract form that each individual can interpret in his or her own way.”
by Mary (Olof Maria Olafsdottir)

Size: 155 cm x 210 cm
Colors: grey, brown and black
