Seven from Stockholm Design Week
It's about mid-way through the 2012 Stockholm Design Week and I've been traveling to studios, showrooms, and the show floor of the Furniture and Light Fair to seek out what's new in Scandinavian Design. There were plenty of wonderful things out there—far too many to even begin to think about a comprehensive roundup—but in the following slideshow, I share seven of my favorites in lighting, furniture, textiles, and accessories.

- Furniture expo Stockholm Furniture Fair is the largest exhibition of Scandinavian design, with 80 percent of the 730 exhibitors being from the Nordic countries.
- We continue our coverage of the 2012 Stockholm Furniture and Light Fair with a selection of especially haute seats.
- After examining the wares of the younguns over at the Greenhouse, it was time to venture into the main portion of the Stockholm Furniture Fair.
- If there was one exhibition I longed to see last year, it was 17 Swedish Designers.
Considering they're so utilitarian—generally used to sop up spilled milk and dry dishes and hands—tea towels can really brighten up a pretty basic kitchen. We're so fond of the small cloths that we've managed to collect more than we can possibly use, and it's bold patterns like this Marianne Nilsson design for Swedish company Almedahls that keep us wanting to hang more more more over our oven door. Available in the US at Scandinavian Grace.
- In the middle of the cold and dark winter, the Swedes hold their annual Stockholm Design Week, drawing exhibitors and visitors from Europe and other parts of the world.
- One of our favorite finds from Stockholm Design Week was HAY's Kaleido tray.
- This week marks the return of the Stockholm Furniture Fair, the largest annual design event in the Nordic part of the world.
