Artisanal Bathroom Accessories by Iris Hantverk The loo: not a place often thought of as having creative potential. Heritage label Iris Hantverk has turned that concept on its head with its stylishly sleek bathroom accessories and gentle hand soaps. Miles away from the cheap plastic that litters most bathrooms, the label’s creations use all-natural bristles and hardwoods in conjunction with concrete to add a contemporary touch to traditional objects. Produced by Iris Hantverk’s team of visually impaired artisans in Sweden and Estonia, the wide range of brushes and sets for personal hygiene and housework combine modern style and a hint of nostalgia to turn any activity into a beloved ritual.
Atlantis Yacht Cushion by bermuda Soft, welcoming, and bold—cushions are one home accessory it’s possible to have fun with while staying on the right side of stylish. Designer Meike Legler trained as a fashion designer and worked in New York and Berlin before her attention turned to textiles for the home. Formed in early 2014, Legler’s label bermuda creates vibrant cushions, hand-sewn in Berlin from Italian cotton, itself made of recycled yarns. Backed by a coconut-wood button and combining a veritable rainbow of playful but demure shades, bermuda’s cushions are a convivial accent for any chic space.
