Hello, here’s the second part of my Design Guide of Gothenburg. I shot so many photos that it took me a while to organise and edit all of them. (p.s. Have a look at my Flickr Album for more city and architectural photos …)
I really love when I go to a new city and find some time to browse Design Shops. I had a very nice trip to Gothenburg the last week, the weather was surprisingly very hot too!!
Here’s a little Shopping Design Guide of the city:
Choosing the perfect bedside table isn’t an easy task. Especially when there’s not much available space.
With only 34 cm to play with, this was my selection shortlist :
1. Backenzahn stool | e15 – £638
2. Fosta Stool | IKEA – £ 8
3. Hay Tray Square table – £ 119
4. VITTSJÖ | IKEA – £ 20
5. Butcher Table | Ethnicraft – £ 259
I decided to go for number 3, the Hay Tray square small table, white matte.
I can’t stress enough how minimal, pure, elegant and practical this table is!!! I also managed to get on the latest sales for a bit less than 100£ (yeahhh !!!)
It fits the space perfectly, the only problem I had was that it’s a bit too low for the height of the bed, which stop me from buying a matching one (I’ve never been a big fan of mirrored bedside tables anyway…).
I managed to solve the problem by placing a MUJI shelf raiser underneath, where I can also store some of my magazines and books.
WHAT I LIKE: Simple and elegant
WHAT I DON’T LIKE: The tray sits loose on the metal frame (even if sometimes it’s useful)
WHAT I’D CHANGE: Having a slightly taller option would be nice…
Hope you like it.
