Introducing GEMSTONE home textiles in collaboration with Svanefors


Woho! I'm so happy to be able to celebrate and share this news with all of you:

It is with great honor I now can announce GEMSTONE home textiles and my collaboration with Svanefors Textil AB - one of Swedens largest wholesalers of home textiles, interior decor and fabric by the yard.

For their Fall/Winter-18 collection Svanefors chose one of my pattern designs called GEMSTONE, a geometrical design I originally made for my Colonial Inn pattern collection.


Gemstone will be available as curtains (gardinlängder), pelmets (gardinkappa), shams/pillowcases and fabric yardage. All products comes in three color ways; Rust, Mustard and Saphire blue.


The collection and products will be launched and displayed at Formex (an exhibition of interior design and products in Stockholm) August 21-24.

Get your Gemstones from me!

The Gemstone products will be available at Svanefors retailers sometime in September I think - in Sweden, Norway, Finland and Germany.

In case you missed my pre-order for an early delivery (ended August 10th) I will soon also sell a limited amount in my web shop :-)
