While I’m very aware of the sustainability of wood and other hard surface materials, I’ve been unaware and slightly naive about textiles. But I’m getting better. In my effort to learn about the textile industry, which is obviously a huge part for interiors, I’m looking to Scandinavian companies that are making a positive difference with quality, production and sustainability. Over a year ago I discovered Aiayu, a company that makes timeless designs made to last (my kind of company). They work with sustainable production and a 100% business practice. By that I mean they make sure that everyone involved including the factories and farms for example are paid fairly and the conditions in which they work are safe and sustainable. Their focus materials are organic cotton, cashmere, Llama wool, Yak wool and linen. Other materials are also sustainably sourced but these are a main focus. The Llama wool is sourced from Bolivia, collected from the Llamas that roam freely in their natural habitat. The wool comes in natural colours of pure white, grey, browns and black. “We are very conscious about minimising the use of dyes or any other chemicals: dark fibres are used for dying dark yarns and light […]

Dreaming of long summer days? I am. Sit me on a lounger in the shade and I’ll be happy. This year Carl Hansen & Son have introduced an outdoor range and another for next year, exciting! As the company are primarily known for indoor furniture with the likes of CH24 Wishbone chair designed by Hans Wegner, it feels like an exciting to include patio and garden furniture to the product portfolio. The Architectural indoor/outdoor series designed by Bodil Kjær Famous for her architectural and product designs from the late 50’s to this day. Bodil Kjær has a way of designing that I love. She focuses on how to construct furniture from a technical perspective, from the inside out. With architectural training and having studied under masters of Danish design, Finn Juhl and Jørgen Ditzel, her work is impeccably designed. Functionality, modernism and technicality at the forefront. Yes, yes, yes. The indoor/outdoor series was designed in 1959, six decades on it’s found a home with Carl Hansen & Son. A stunningly high quality range inspired by Cubist forms and modern architecture. Made from solid teak making it durable for the outdoors. I’ve linked here to the full range, Bodil Kjær’s Indoor/Outdoor […]

&Tradition showroom – by appointment only& Tradition Courtyard café – open to publicKronprinsessegade 4,DK–1306 Copenhagen Last year Danish design brand &Tradition moved from their previous home on Papirøen (sadly knocked down now) to the ever impressive townhouse in central Copenhagen. What has been proposed for Papirøen is a new water park and culture centre (read more for info) Though &Tradition had to move location, this was a blessing in disguise as the townhouse is something pretty special. On entering the gates &Tradition have created a wonderfully inviting courtyard and café. On the day that I took these pictures it was quite moody weather. I’ll cover the courtyard design on a sunnier day. I did have a meeting inside the café which is stunning, this part is open to the public and I encourage everyone to visit. The food is wonderful and you have the chance to test out the furniture and see it all up close. Following on from the café area the townhouse is then used as office, studio, gallery and showroom space. The townhouse is massive! The space, like many other showrooms, changes from time to time. So visiting it again after 6 months was refreshing. The new […]

What if a chair could help the ocean? Sounds like an incredible idea right?! Get ready people because it’s true. We welcome the Ocean Collection. Danish design brand Mater are committed to developing design with sustainable solutions. A forward thinking company working with designers and material innovation. Well known for their stunning Spine collection, designed by Space Copenhagen. Here Mater have relaunched a design from the archives of Jørgen and Nanna Ditzel and developed the new Ocean collection. A reissued Danish design with sustainable material innovation. Sounds perfect to me. The original design (1955) was found in Nanna Ditzel’s archive after she passed away in 2005. It as only made once, for the Ditzel family. Original materials were steel tubing and wood veneer. Nanna Ditzel was famously known as a designer searching for new materials. Her designs are classic, modernist and have a push for new technologies of the time, such as the Trinidad chair in production with Fredericia. It seems perfectly fitting that her (and Jørgen’s) designs are now in the hands of a company that have a very similar mindset. the ocean collection material The frame work is steel tube and 5% scaled up from the original designs […]

*ad – this is a sponsored post in collaboration with Georg Jensen for the Kelly Wearstler Frequency collection. My job is to style products and write about design. I only ever work with brands that I recommend and trust. Kelly Wearstler is the latest to collaborate with Georg Jensen. Running a multifaceted design studio, Kelly is one of the biggest names on the West coat of America, well known for her modern and expressive designs. The Frequency collection evokes balance and motion. Inspired by nature which is a huge part of the LA lifestyle. In particular the waves of the Pacific ocean. Scandinavian design so often looks to nature for reference. With Kelly’s uniquely American style the Frequency collection translates the these two worlds in perfectly polished steel. “raw natural power and Nordic minimalism’ A ribbon of stainless steel runs through the collection, depicting the natural repetition of the water. Georg Jenson’s classical and impeccable craftsmanship is clear within these designs. Sculptural, timeless and well balanced. I really had fun with the pieces. Styling them with wild natural branches foraged from the field near my home. Rather than my initial worry that the collection would be ‘showy’, the opposite happened […]

*this outdoor inspiration pot is NOT sponsored. Though I have worked with Skagerak in the past by styling products in my home. I recommend them 100% , they champion sustainability, quality, design and manufacturing. Nice people too. It’s official, spring is here. Though still a little cold in Denmark but it is getting lighter! AND the seagulls are piping up, that’s when I know the seasons are changing. I’m welcoming more days outside and now I’m searching for some much needed garden tips and inspo. It’s probably the most exciting time of year for me. I just love spring! Now let’s get some outdoor inspiration! You know Skagerak are my first point of call when it comes to most things. And this year they’ve done it again. Outdoor inspiration has hit me hard. From trips to the beach to relaxing in the garden, Skagerak sure know how to get my heart going. I’m loving the idea of spending more days at the beach. Bringing folding chairs and beach tennis kits is a sure way to live that relaxed Danish lifestyle we so often hear about. I actually think they’d be great in parks too. Speaking from experience this Mira chair […]

*featuring some gifted products. I have been testing out many conscious cleaning products, I have only mentioned the ones that I recommend. Some of which I have purchased myself, not everything is gifted. I originally intended in writing this conscious cleaning blog post to only style and recommend eco cleaning products. Which will be part of it but considering the subject matter is not furniture related, I felt like I owed more of an explanation to why I’m talking about conscious cleaning. Or maybe my house is just filthy and that’s why I’m trying to find kinder cleaning products…. As I am on social media a lot I have noticed there is a huge trend towards natural/non-toxic cleaning products and materials especially those with beautifully designed packaging (great!). They caught my eye, especially if the packaging was minimal. So I wanted to test some of them out. My usual over thinking got me to these thoughts. How the hell has cleaning products got onto my Instagram feed, why do I want them? are they actually eco? Where can I buy them? I need them… a stylish way to address an environmental crisis? Yes, most of us are aware that the […]

You may have noticed that my blog name has changed. I’ve said goodbye Hannah in the house and welcomed Hannah Trickett. As sometimes you just need a change. Why you ask? Well it has been some time coming. I started Hannah in the house 9 years ago. Originally a small tumblr account then onto WordPress. The name was a fun take on the fact I was spending all of my time in the house due to my health condition. Though I never intended it to become a business but it did however become just that. Plus I needed to work. The name stuck, the business grew and I was happy. Leading up to my 36th birthday, this year in February, I had been contemplating moving the direction of my business somehow. Not drastically but like any business, it should evolve. I’m still contemplating and working things out in my head. There were some clear signs that I needed to shift my priorities such as;– Affiliate companies emailing me to say were closing my account due to inactivity. I didn’t care at all. I was relived. Obviously was a sign that they were not the right fit for me. – Feeling […]

During Stockholm design week ’19 there were some show stopping exhibitions and installations. Trade shows are the usual platform for exhibiting new products but over the last few years there has been a growth in a gallery type exhibition. Though I do think that trade shows are essential and can be exciting at times, there’s something a little more creative and less sales led when it comes to an exhibition. Spatial sensibilities an exhibition by Andreas Martin-Löf Arkitekter & Frama Studio was certainly a showstopper. It was set within an apartment in Kungsholmen, Stockholm with views over the Riddarfjärden bay and Södermalm. A tranquil and a much needed exhibition during one quite hectic week. Frama’s Rivet range has expanded from the iconic round side table to now include box tables and shelves. This grey frame chair designed by Elding Oscarson for Frama was a great example of understated design. There’s something so simple and elegant about this chair. Another great chair is the new stackable Chair 01 by Frama Studio. Here they exhibited it in black and natural wood. The ceramic range Otto has so many beautiful new sizes in bowls, jugs, plates and bowls. The handmade qualities give a […]

AD – paid in collaboration with Georg Jensen You’ll probably be aware by know that my favourite city is Copenhagen. So much so that last year I packed my bags and said goodbye to smokey old  London, moving my life, my boyfriend and the cat to the Danish capital. Best decision ever! Copenhagen is a laid back city, filled with design, great architecture, culture (some of it quite odd), amazing food, harbours to swim in and lots of cycling, I could go on. It’s a city to be happy, inspired, considerate and creative. I simply love it! The Danes celebrate traditional craftsmanship alongside modern design and a healthy appreciation for nature and the environment. Georg Jensen holds those values close to the company’s heart. Celebrating true craftsmanship, honest materials, design history and collaborating with new designers. They are well rooted in Danish design history (more than 100 years) and recognised by all Danes. Even in my family too, my Mormor (Danish grandmother) had quite the collection. Which is why this competition is extra special for me to help promote. It warms my heart. Georg Jensen are giving away a trip for two people to my new city of Copenhagen! An […]
