I was lucky to attend the opening party of Hotel Charlottenborg exhibition the day before the official doors opened for the public, which means I was also able to take a few photos of my own to show you some of my favorite pieces. Hotel Charlottenborg showcased 16 furniture brands in one of Copenhagen’s most beautiful buildings, Charlottenborg Festsal, and is curated by the team behind Ark Journal. The exhibition focused on the hospitality scene, in fresh settings that play up the zone between private and public, creating a home away from home.
Fritz Hansen, Kvist Industries, Skovby Møbelfabrik, Re Beds, Møbelsnedkeri Kjeldtoft, Magnus Olesen, Eilersen (more of their new sofa as shown in the exhibition and their history I wrote here) , Cane-line, Randers+Radius, Vahle, W.O. Interior, Overgaard & Dyrman, Søren Lund Møbler, Four Design, Brdr. Petersen and Form & Refine , are the exhibitors , a group composed of both large and small, young and more established companies. All the brands are showing a mixture of new pieces juxtaposed to some classics and elements that help elevate the Hotel Charlottenborg concept.
While perusing through all the exhibitors , we were also treated to drinks in Charlottenborg’s large inner courtyard that became a quaint cafe for the 3 Days of Design, where I must thank Lisa ( my wing woman extraordinaire liaison from Eilersen) for arranging so I never missed an opportunity to drink and have fun. What are good friends for 🙂

I promised I would share my new bedroom before November ended, and while it is not quite ready yet I am so happy with the result I am posting a sneak peak. I don’t want to reveal too much since a post with all the details (and before photos) will be up soon, but I will share some information and answer some questions I have been asked a lot.
We moved in yesterday night after letting the floors dry ( painted white) for a few days. So far the paint is holding on quite well although I did put protecting pads under every single furniture that I moved in, including the bed. The only problem is the floor will get dirtier faster, even after a few days and while it was empty, however it is nothing a simple quick swipe with a broom wont fix. I am proceeding with painting the rest of the floors downstairs starting from today so everything is going to be a mess at least until Christmas.
After we moved the bed in, the only furniture that made the cut were the bed (along with its linens), a marble side table, a table lamp, a pilea plant, a Bluetooth speaker and some hand care creams.
I returned from Bergen without the IVAR cabinets I wanted to place opposite the bed since they were completely out of stock, so I will have to wait for them or find another storage solution. I do not wish to overcrowd the bedroom, so other than a little bit of storage, a mirror (the Georg mirror from Skagerak is perfect) maybe a basket and am extra chair, I will not be adding too much.
For now, even as empty, I am very happy with the look, I am really looking forward to it finishing though, and hopefully the IVAR cabinets will restock quite soon!
