A few weeks back I embarked on a excellent excursion to Skåne, the southern idea of Sweden, pursuing an invitation from the neighborhood tourism board Stop by Skåne. I was psyched due to the fact the only point I knew about Skåne so much was its major metropolis: Malmö. I traveled a handful of many years ago to discover the city and its vibrant structure scene. This time my mission was identical, yet broader. I was likely to take a look at Malmö, Trelleborg and Helsingborg and go to the new design and style pageant, the Southern Sweden Design and style Days.
Minor did I know how stunning and picturesque Skåne is. My first times I expended in the vicinity of Trelleborg, in the southern idea of the location. It is there the place you can in fact stop by the southernmost issue of Sweden and acquire in the fresh sea breeze and the green landscape. Essentially in this time the landscape is all environmentally friendly and yellow with rapeseed fields all to the horizon.
What I loved about the Trelleborg spot was its near proximity to Malmö, and yet you felt like truly out at the countryside – even even though it was a mere 20 minutes drive by car or truck from the town. I have a few personalized highlights from that region: Slättarps Gård, a farm-turned-idea retail outlet in the midst of fertile fields with a good cafe the stylish and new Weinbergs Hotel with a wonderful cafe and Axatorpsgården, a dreamy Bed & Breakfast wherever I was keeping (but I will convey to you far more about this one is a separate web site submit).
Malmö was its brilliant self as usual – this metropolis form of mixes Swedish and Danish vibes, nonetheless it also feels pretty cosmopolitan. And sunny times are the most effective in town – it is as if every person is outside taking pleasure in the sunshine and delicate temperatures. My mission was to go and pay a visit to this year’s Southern Sweden Style and design Days, which are scattered close to the town in various destinations. In amongst I desired to prevent in one particular of my favored minor restaurants in city: Noir. And just immediately after a fantastic chunk & vino, I stopped at Olsson & Gerthel, a shop packed with Scandinavian layout that constantly will make my heart skip a conquer.
The rest of the working day I spent discovering the resourceful scene and designs from southern Sweden. I cherished the vibrant and playful models of Swedish Ninja as perfectly as the classy outside home furniture array of Nola. Speaking of out of doors (and indoor why not): the wooden bench by designer Marc Hoogendijk would be absolutely my alternative if I had room!
An additional fantastic discovery was the perform of youthful Swedish Artist Elsa Unnegård. She showcased a stool built of burnt wooden that seems to be like driftwood, but is in simple fact sculpted by her. I uncovered it very sculptural, incredibly artsy – nevertheless sensible, as you can genuinely use it as a stool. Also I cherished to see a combine of organic and natural designs, resources, hues as opposed to functional, classy household furniture that stems from what they call ‘technomimicry’, mimicking and seeking inspiration in complex models. I noticed some plant answers as very well – of class. Skandiform showcased the Allé Corner room dividers that are fundamentally sensible plant stands to structure areas with plant divisions.
Also for those people of you thinking of Malmö as a great journey location (and I stimulate you to insert it your travel bucket list): staying in the Duxiana Resort is a ideal resolution: you are super central and you will snooze like a child in their incredible beds!
The last component of my Skåne trip introduced me to Helsingborg, a 50 minutes generate north of Malmö. The town is vivid and has a superb coastline to appreciate (windy) walks, lovable espresso sites like the Bruket Kaffebar, incredible restaurants like the Sillen & Makrillen overlooking the Öresund, as effectively as a extremely funky hotel: the Vault Hotel!
But when in Helsingborg, I motivate you to drive out to the encompassing countryside, as the character is wonderful and the soil listed here has a whole lot of clay which resulted in 1 of Sweden’s oldest and most classic pottery factories: the Wallåkra Stoneware Factory. There I had the incredible chance to get back again to the potter’s wheel immediately after so numerous decades and throw my very own minimal piece of the very regular Skåne clay. I am curious to see the tiny bud vase the moment it is fired and arrives in this article in Berlin. Close by you can also halt at the ‘Tomatenshus’, a tomato expanding farm, that grows very tasty tomatoes. And certainly, I received hungry there much too – so just upcoming doorways is the restaurant Miss out on Alice Kroog & Delikatesser and their signature dish is: tomato pie! Of course, go for it! Oh certainly!!
From Helsingborg I stated goodbye to Skåne by taking the ferry and environment above to Helsingør in Denmark. But that is yet another tale to be advised. For now I hope you enjoyed the little tour of Skåne and its vibrant locations and layout scene. See you shortly at the Axatorpsgården Mattress & Breakfast below on the web site!
