Ferm Living, a Danish interior design company, is riding high on the ever-surging trend towards Scandinavian sensibilities. They produce a line of well-crafted everyday objects with eye for color and pattern and a focus on highlighting natural materials. Retro, yes, but not kitsch. Their Autumn/Winter 2012 collection includes textiles with strong geometric prints in black and white and neon orange color combinations. The neon is something of an anomaly, however, as most of their products this year are more subdued – dark mustard, dusky mauve and rich, deep turquoise balanced by grey and wood tones. The images here are just a smattering of their hundred-page catalog. See all their products and continue on to their online shop or see if they’re stocked in your city.
