Event Images from Arne Jacobsen: Celebrating an Icon

Inform Interiors had the recent pleasure of hosting the Fritz Hansen North America team as well as Master Upholsterer Hans Thure Mannerhagen from the factory in Denmark. Adrian Pollack presented a wonderful seminar about Arne Jacobsen's life and work for Fritz Hansen. This was followed by Hans finishing an Egg™ chair on site during the event. It was truly an eye opening experience to see the amount of craftsmanship that goes into each piece. Seeing the craft behind the design elevates the product and company. Inform has the new limited edition 60th Anniversary Series 7™ chair available to see and purchase in the showroom.

Also coming from Europe, by way of Belgium, we love the alternative- a more classic approach to outdoor furniture from Royal Botania. Using materials such as stainless steel and teak, one of our favorite collections from Royal Botania is the O-zon. The round version of this table in teak with integrated stainless steel lazy susan will have you daydreaming about balmy summer nights here in the Pacific Northwest. See it here in person and begin planning your alfresco dinners now.

Hee for HAY

One of our favorite new lines at Inform is HAY and Wrong for HAY out of Denmark. They do everything from chairs, tables, rugs, mirrors and accessories all with a fun edge. I love their outdoor pieces as well and really believe they compliment our simple, clean style of the NW. "The philosophy behind the Hee Chair was to take an archetypal chair and perfect it down to the last detail while cutting expression to the bone. Like a line drawing, it wraps metro after metro of metal wire into neat, straight lines in three versions: bar stool, lounge chair and dining chair." Available to see and sit at Inform now!
