Miss My at Habitare 2013

Last Saturday Miss Mo and I visited the Helsinki Exhibition and Convention Centre where Habitare 2013 was taking place 18-22 September. Habitare is a furniture, design- and interior decoration fair where beautiful things are displayed. We saw all kinds of things from all kinds of countries. From lamps from Copenhagen to beautifully intricate Moroccan inspired lamps.

We first had a look at the bigger things such as sofas, beds, kitchens, kitchen tables and chairs. Some were very contemporary and some antique looking. Here are some of my favourites from that section.







Hästens.

'Her chair' by Casamania fit me like a glove.


Out of the dark




Some treasures from the Antiques-section:





Intricate oriental jewelry box.


Love the lovely old suitcases.


And last but certainly not least: the interior decoration accessories. It was my favourite section. We oohed and aahed as we saw so many beautiful things there. 

One of the displays we loved was by Dokkän. According to their website "Dokkän offers unique, stylish, oriental and authentic home decor items." and was founded by two female friends. Mymoon always supports businesses founded by friends! It's amazing how much oriental-ness they managed to fit into a few square meters. I just love their lamps and am definitely planning on visiting their shop in Helsinki. Visit their website for inspiration and have a look at their other beautiful products.











Another display we loved with similar oriental style items was by Zocohome. Again, I love the intricate lamps and they offer more white and silver items. I had a look at their website and saw that you can order online. Uh oh, I (or rather my bank account) is in trouble as I fell in love with the silver serving trays which are absolutely stunning. I also love their Moroccan shoe selection. Visit their website for inspiration and try not to empty your bank account when ordering online!

Organic things are trendy right now and one of the stands featured organic soaps and candles from Aamumaa. Aamumaa means land of eternal dawn. I visited their website and I love their philosophy "Going Green For Good". Aamumaa's products are hand-made in Finland using naturally organic products. Aamumaa donates 50 cents from every product sold to WWF (World Wide Found for Nature) to protect animal species that are dependent on ice and snow, such as ice bears and the Saimaa ringed seal (Phoca hispida saimensis). Mymoon loves companies who produce organic products and donate to charity!We got some products, which by the way came in recycled packaging, which you can win by participating in our raffle. More about the raffle later.
