This year is coming to an end and we would like to share some words of gratitude towards our dear customers and fans/followers, the amazing brands that we have the privilege to work with, to our dedicated team that never fails to make the most possible effort to get the job done and most of all we would like to show gratitude for the beauty that nature and foreign cultures offer us.
A few more days and this rather hectic year, full of changes and challenges, is coming to an end. We have seen many developments around us that should make our lives easier. We have seen online shopping develop into something that is focussed on a fast economy where the lowest price and mass production rules. At times we felt overwhelmed; where do we fit in? How can we keep up with all these fast movements, where there is no time to pay special attention or care? So we decided to go against the current and to go more SLOW than ever!
We focussed on staying on our original path and to not lose sight of our initial objective; to help our clients create a beautiful home, wherever they are, with respect for human and nature. Bring colour to your life, but in a sober and modest way. To offer products that last (sometimes a life time, or even generation to come) and that effortlessly bring charm to your home decor because of its simplicity and imperfection. To source for original pieces and brands, that share our passion and philosophy and to always find new ways to re-use or to mix the old with the new. To mix styles and to not be afraid to express personality and showcase your journey in a way that your home truly is a reflection of your soul (-Coco Chanel).
With these objectives in mind, we are grateful for our customers and our dedicated team that made it possible for us to continue our passion. We are grateful for (new) brands that design and source for the most beautiful products and materials. That help local cultures flourish and that embrace their traditions and ancient craftsmanship or that empower them to create new ones. Because of you and our brands, the SLOW movement within the Home Decor sector is on the rice! How grateful we are to have stayed on this path and how grateful we are to see the SLOW movement grow!
We are delighted to finish the year with the beautiful compliments about our webstore, expressed by the French blog zeros-sociaux.fr in their article '5 best Scandinavian shops':
''Behind this enchanting name hides a Scandinavian online store as effective as it is formidable. Intended for fans of ethnic universes, this virtual store mixes styles to offer a modern and fun Scandinavian design. Highlighted, their collection offers a multitude of choices to buyers, such as trendy living room furniture, rugs, wallpaper or original light fixtures. The secret of their success: a good dose of sobriety, and originality that stands out from the competition.''
To continue our path, we will soon present you the new SLOW collection of TinekHome, Ay Illuminate, Tell Me More, Snowdrops Copenhagen, Bloomingville, HK Living, House Doctor, Broste Copenhagen and Dareels. Also we are excited to introduce the new brands: Color & Co from Denmark, who offers a stuffing collection of bamboo blinds), The Dharma Door from Australia who offers an amazing bohemian style collection of wall decoration and Rock the Kasbah who's famous natural light fixtures from Tunisia require no introduction.
We hope to see you back in 2019 and that you will continue our journey together!
