Name the place

15 Aug

I’m really intrigued by these Places cushions by Swedish textile designers, How Are you. Each one shows a landscape photographed by Niklas Blom and is named after the longitude and latitude where it was taken. Paste the co-ordinates into Google Maps to see the exact spot the tripod was standing.

61.496164,8.808289

68.150634,14.201546

61.393267,8.798332

OK, so it’s a bit of a novelty, but I appreciate the thinking behind it and the cushions themselves are lovely. There are no UK stockists yet (they’re looking) but they sell online for ยฃ63 each and can be shipped over here.

If these float your boat, check out their fun Making Hard Things Soft range too – great for an industrial room.

    Look pretty cool but you would have to have the right type of apartment for it. I like the idea of photographs on scarves
