Birkelunden Flea Market

Every sunday there is a big flea market at Birkelunden park on Grünerløkka in Oslo. Here you’ll find antique furnitures, ceramics, glassware, vintage clothes, toys and more.  I bought these dining chairs in teak and vinyl there last weekend:

Restored & Modernised Furnitures

Here are some of the furnitures I have worked on and modernised lately. Last week’s treasure hunt resulted in a series of furnitures from the 1920s. I love the fine artwork on old furnitures. All about the details, and high quality materials. I am still working on the dining table that seats up to 16 persons.

French Art Deco – Charlotte Perriand

Every monday there is a big flea and antiques market on the Cours Selaya in Nice.
I bought this french art deco lamp there, designed by Charlotte Perriand for Jumo in the 1930s.
Charlotte Perriand (1903-1999) was one of the most innovative and influential furniture designers of the 20th century and is perhaps most known for her collaboration with Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeanneret.

Here are some of her furniture designs:
