Now for something special - this 90 m2 flat located in Brno is full of Czech (Czecho-Slovakian respectively) mid century furniture and decorations.
There are wonderful Tubular Chairs & sofa, glass ceiling lamps, vintage parquet flooring and this extremely cool chest of drawers (which I already have at home) all together in combination with contemporary artwork hanging on walls forms very eclectic and interesting interior full of colours.
Shape comes from Chinese Quan Yi ceremonial seat that was simplified in the Danish modern style. When it was first introduced, however, its recognition was not overly positive and only a handful of retailers bought it for their showrooms. Now it is one of the most popular Hansen products which presents finest craftsmanship and comfort, aviable in wide selection of colors.
I sooo want one - perfect for my bedroom or dinning room.

This new stylish store was opened in spring 2010 in Prague, interior is by studio A1 Architects.
They are calling it "New Czech Paperstore" - and it deserves that name - it´s not just ordinry paper store but design store for hand made wrapping papers, pencil boxes, workbooks and much more.
Their products are made using environment friendly natural materials and are great alternative for common mass produced paper products.
