Spring is here!

We’re well into the month of March, the first official month of Spring in the Northern hemisphere, and though the weather has not been quite worthy of Spring yet, we are starting to feel the air change, see the first flowers bloom and slowly but surely welcoming more colorful days outside. To us March is always a great month to get a little decorating done, and today we’re feeling inspired by fresh and vibrant color. Here are a few easy ways to celebrate spring and bring the springtime feel into your home.


Agnes Vases

Treat yourself to a nice bouquet of colorful seasonal flowers in a beautiful new vase.


Long Drink Glasses

Warm spring weekends call for a nice treat. Apple trifle is our desert of choice. Here served in a nice tall glass so there is lots of room for desert. Check out the recipe here.


Brilliant Boxes

For treats or trinkets the Brilliant Boxes will let you catch a glimpse of what’s inside through the glass lids. The clear, deep colors are inspired by gemstones and the lids catch the spring sunlight for a positively gleaming look in the windowsill.


Krenit Bowls

The Krenit Bowls come in a wide range of colors and sizes, making them great for mixing and matching. Use them for serving or as decoration anywhere in the home.


Block Table

Make your home minty fresh with a side table in a delicate and cool mint green. Style it with all your favorite collectibles or the things you need close at hand.


Tea Egg

Serving a nice cup of spring tea with these colorful tea infusers to keep warm until the weather heats up.


Mormor Blue Dinner Plate & Grass Vase

Whether you are opting for new tableware, a quirky vase, repainting your walls or planing on buying a new table in a fresh color, nothing says spring like a yellow, green and clear sky blue combo.

Happy spring to all!

Flagship Store Fashion Department Reborn

After a long, dark Winter, we thought it was about time to create a lighter and brighter look in our Flagship Store Fashion Department. So we grabbed the white paint, the paint brush and the roller and got to work. Check out the finished result here.

We’re in love with florals – one of the biggest trends of the season, so we decided to incorporate the floral feel in the interior design by adding a staircase podium covered with beautiful wallpaper from Tapet Café. The wallpaper is designed by Helene Blanche, and the lovely people from Tapet Café were kind enough to do the wallpapering. We couldn’t be more pleased with the result!

On our Toj Clothes Rack you will find the Carven SS14 collection. If you’re planning on expanding your wardrobe with some floral pieces, Carven is definitely one of the brands to look to.

Lots of lovely clothing in classic neutral tones, bright blues, bold reds, fresh pinks and a hint of luxurious metallic fill the clothes racks in the department. Here the clothes are accompanied by our new Slice Tabletop, Buk Table Legs and Onkel Sofa in leather.

If you are in Copenhagen and in need of an injection of flower power, drop by and check out our reborn fashion department!

A duck for life

Ducky is a wooden figure with a naive yet stylish and sophisticated look that makes it ideal for adults as well as children. Welcome Ducky into your home to add an element of humor and enjoyment.


Ducky’s minimalistic and classic look is full of nostalgia and character with its clear inspiration from traditional wooden toys. It comes in a refined grey color and in a light oak that lets you see the beautiful grains in the tree.

Place Ducky in a still life with plants, vases and candles to bring charisma to your living room, or use it as a toy in your child’s room. With its clean and simple silhouette, Ducky is an all-round item that changes character according to where it is placed in the home.

Ducky in the living room

The designer Dor Carmon created Ducky in the wake of his daughter’s birth. When we asked him about his inspiration for Ducky, he said:

“I love to design characters. To create something aesthetic that doesn’t necessarily need to be functional is a form of relaxation for me. It’s a nice break from my normal day where I work primarily with functional product design. Apart from that, I wanted to design a special item for my daughter. It had to be something timeless, emotive and irreplaceable that she could have with her throughout her adult life.”

My new Onkel

A new member has been added to the range of Onkel Sofas; a leather version available in black or cognac. Onkel has a recognizable, Scandinavian design and is available in a 2 and 3 seater version. The eminent soft leather gives the classy and refined Onkel Sofa a whole new dimension.

Onkel Sofa 2 seater in Cognac leather

This design, created by Simon Legald, is an homage to two disparate centuries in this unique classic yet contemporary design. Onkel combines the simplicity of modern design with the soft curves from the middle of the century.

The sofa’s outer shell has a minimalistic and streamlined look, whilst the back cushion has soft curves created by beautiful deep-stitching. The back cushion is elegantly encapsulated by the outer shell. Lacquered ash wood legs in a matching color completes the design and makes the sofa stand as a unified whole.

Onkel Leather in a livingroom

The designer Simon Legald says about his design: “The sofa has emerged out of a dialogue between craftsmanship and industry. With Onkel, I have utilized old craftsmanship techniques and used them in a new context. In this way, the details gives Onkel personality.”

Besides being beautiful to look at, we have selected the leather for its durability and to ensure a comfortable sitting experience. And because it is pleasurably easy to clean, your days of crying over spilled milk are over. Whether your style is minimalistic, colorful, classic or modern, there’s no reason not to invite this Onkel into your home.

Design Fairs in Paris & Stockholm

We’re running a tight schedule attending a total of four Spring fairs this time. We started out at imm in Cologne, where we showed our Spring novelties to the press and buyers for the very first time. Afterwards, we went to Paris for the Maison et Objet fair and right now, we are exhibiting all the new products at the Stockholm Furniture Fair.

We already showed you our imm stand, and true to tradition, we’d like to give you a little glimpse of our stands in Paris and Stockholm as well. Enjoy!

Exclusive look at our inspiration for the Season

Every season, we gather inspirational photos from all around and create moodboards that show the trends that we have selected and will set the tone for the season.

We use them as inspiration for graphic design, when designing our stand for the fairs, when styling for photoshoots and when decorating our Flagship Store, just to name a few examples. Here are the moodboards that we created for the Spring/Summer 2013 season.

Plants, pastels and pops of bright contrasting color minimally styled to create a warm a cosy atmosphere. This board captures the feel that we wanted to create at our stand in Milan.

Cool greys in combination with the warmth of wood, gem-like faceted egdes, texture and  patterns gave way to this both product images and a section in our February-March showroom at our Flagship Store.

Sometimes the moodboards evolve slowly from season to season, like this red board for example. Red has been an important color for us for a long time, but the color scheme has gradually evolved througout the years to also include muted burgundies and soft pinks, corals and nudes.

                                                                                     Red tones for our catalogue, press kit and invite for all the spring fairs.

Invite the Spring in!

March has arrived, and spring is now officially here and here at Normann Copenhagen we want to bring this season inside.

On the one hand, spring is associated with bright and upbeat colors, but on the other is it also a synonym for calm, dusty and friendly tones.

With the two collages below we bring you inspiration from our spring color palette.

In the green and blue collage above, the colors are light and fresh. A combination of dusty and the bright colors bring in calmness as well as the spring.

Where the blue and green colors are bright and fresh, this rosy combination has depth and intensity. To keep the theme in balance, a light, dusty mint has been added, and brings freshness back into this intense color palette.
