Lotta Cole Design – Homewares Collection

I’m very lucky to have a bunch of creative friends. A few of them are giving up the daily grind and launching their own design businesses. One such friend, Lotta Cole, has produced a range of exquisite homewares. Originally from Sweden, Lotta came to London as a 17 year old and worked as an Interior Designer for many years. She decided to go back to her roots after having her son Casper and reassessing what is really important to her.  Lotta’s family comes from a place in Sweden where her great-great-grandfather set up a farm with a forest three hundred years ago. All the wood  used in creating her products is sourced from this sustainable woodland.

Lotta says “It has been incredibly rewarding to sketch something, draw it in detail, and then build it with my own hands using wood from our forest”

Below are just a few of my favourite designs from her collection.
