KLARA CROFT — FUNKY, TREND-AWARE RUGS FOR FLOORS AND WALLS

KLARA CROFT — FUNKY, TREND-AWARE RUGS FOR FLOORS AND WALLS

The hashtags #knit and #crochet currently have over 280 million views on TikTok as a new home decor trend sweeps the DIY world: rug art. At the center of it are colorful, fluffy and bespoke rugs made from acrylic. Klara Pichler – aka Klara Croft – stumbled across her tufting gun online during the 2020 lockdown. Ever since she has been creating one-of-a-kind rugs in bright colors and unusual shapes. Suitable for floors and walls, they not only glam up your mirror selfies, but are the perfect solution if you’re lacking floor space. The kaleidoscopic designs of the Berlin-based Tyrolean, some of which are rather reminiscent of an LSD trip, are designed intuitively on her iPad and embody the same sense of tongue-in-cheek fun and self-expression that can be found in the social media posts of her friends. The finished designs are projected onto the fabric, and then the tufting begins à la paint-by-numbers as the wool is shot into the canvas with the tufting gun and then fixed with natural latex (the latter doubles as a non-slip film). Voilà: your fluffy, mood-boosting eye-catcher is ready, and it’s anything but normcore.

STYLISH WINTER ACCESSORIES FOR HOME AND ON-THE-GO: ZELLWEGER WARMWEAR

STYLISH WINTER ACCESSORIES FOR HOME AND ON-THE-GO: ZELLWEGER WARMWEAR

If you’re not just craving warmth and comfort right now, but a fresh winter look too, Zellweger Warmwear has just what you’re looking for. Their latest collection uses 100 percent organic cotton and includes three products: The ScarfThe Blanket and The Mini. Founders Kiki Albrecht, Peter Klotz and Tim Tobias Zimmermann sought to create timeless pieces that last more than just one season. Made in Europe, the designs function as both fashion and home accessories. Tobias Zimmermann works as a stylist and creative consultant based in Berlin and Zurich and Peter Klotz is part of the Andy Wolf team, while Kiki Albrecht has made a name for herself as a creative communication consultant in Berlin and brings a keen sense of fashion and luxury.

The name “Zellweger” comes from the family name of one of the founders and promises comfort and the feeling of being at home. This explains why these extraordinary products feel like a loving embrace. Whether you’re at your desk or on the sofa, this “Warmwear” offers a stylish match for every need, and features eye-catching white stitching that prevents the natural fabric from bunching up. Our favorite has to be The Scarf, which is big enough to keep you warm in even the chilliest of rooms. We certainly know what we’ll be cozying up with this month.

YES STUDIO BERLIN: THE LOCAL CONCEPT STORE IN KREUZKÖLLN — RECOMMENDED BY KERSTIN FINGER

YES STUDIO BERLIN: THE LOCAL CONCEPT STORE IN KREUZKÖLLN — RECOMMENDED BY KERSTIN FINGER

If you find yourself in Kreuzkölln, walking to the market on Maybachufer or along the Landwehrkanal, be sure to stop by Nadia’s Yes Studio. In this concept store you’ll find a carefully curated assortment of jewelry, textiles, books, fragrances, stationery and beautiful things for the home. Among them are brands like New Tendency (one of my all-time faves), Atelier Haussmann, and Christian Metzner, as well as design pieces by llot llov. Nadia, who used to work as an online sales manager and has now fulfilled her dream of opening a brick-and-mortar store, attaches great importance to providing a platform for designers, artists and manufacturers from German-speaking countries.

On my first visit, the gorgeous paper flowers by Nana Neukölln immediately caught my eye. If it were not for the fact that she works with artificial colors, I could have sworn the flowers were real. I was also an instant fan of the colorful acrylic bangles by Berlin’s Zhuo Zhao, which catch the light brilliantly. So if you’re ever looking for a gift for yourself or a friend, you’re sure to find what you’re looking for in this fairyland of design. 

Graphic designer Kerstin Finger came to Berlin in 2007 and has been running the Italian shop Amore Store in Neukölln since 2015.

FROM AILEEN GREY TO HERMANN MILLER: VINTAGE TREASURES AND DESIGN CLASSICS AT PATINA BERLIN

FROM AILEEN GREY TO HERMANN MILLER: VINTAGE TREASURES AND DESIGN CLASSICS AT PATINA BERLIN

It can be so wonderful to (re)furnish an apartment. For me, planning alone is enough to bring me joy. But getting the furniture you want can sometimes prove a challenge. I’ve spent hours scouring online classifieds and made countless visits to flea markets only to be left empty-handed. Fortunately, there’s another place you can go: Patina Berlin. This online store with a showroom in Kreuzberg is guaranteed to make the hearts of interior and design lovers flutter. With designers including Thonet, Hermann Miller, Egon Eiermann, and Vitra, the selection of vintage pieces is an absolute treasure trove. To widen their inventory, founder Chris and his brothers Jonas and Quintus are always on the lookout for new items that they can refurbish in their workshop. To source their rugs they even fly to Morocco. In addition to vintage furniture, you can also find the Swiss classic USM Haller collection, which can be configured to your tastes. So drop by the showroom and let the Patina team take you to interior bliss.
