CHRISTMAS PARTY





Today we're having the annual ferm LIVING Christmas Party with hopefully lots of glögg, snacks and hygge.

FRIDAY SHOPPING

From today we will be introducing a brand new section called "Friday Shopping". The section will put a spot on a shop selling our products. This Friday our good friend Sonia from Gosto in The Netherlands sent us pictures and a little text about her shop.



1. Who are you?
My name is Sonia van der Zwaan-Barrigas. I'm a Portuguese married with a Dutch happily living in the Netherlands. I'm an urban designer but have this passion about interior design. Two months ago I decided to change the course of my professional life, I gave up my 9 to 5 job and started what I call 'my little dream', a shop in interior design and lifestyle with a Scandinavian touch! 'Gosto' is a Portuguese word with many meanings, itcan be used for 'taste', 'style' or 'I love'. Everything in my shop represents my 'Gosto'. All my favourite brands, among them ferm in particularly, and also some young independent designers are represented. I also have a 'taste' corner, where I share my favourite olive oils from Italy, chutneys and curds from England and off course wines from Portugal! I like this kind of mix, my style and my taste!

2. Where is your shop located?
My shop is located in a small village called Blaricum about 20 km outside Amsterdam. It was formerly the milkshop of my husband's grandfather. The building is more than 100 years old, a farmhouse, still with the thatching roof so typical for this region of the country. Blaricum is this sweet small village, where everybody knows everybody, known for its many monumental farm buildings, local cafes and restaurants and off course nature.

3. Which 5 words describe your shop?
Funny, unconventional, young, bright, Scandinavian with south European temperament.

4. What is the best with your local area/city?
The best of both worlds, the city and the countryside. Within 20 minutes we're in a busy city like Amsterdam or Utrecht, but with my bicycle I'm five minutes away from a big natural park. It's also a particularly region in the Netherlands, with great shops and restaurants.

5. Any good ideas for the weekend?
I love music concerts and in Amsterdam is always something up, look for more information at www.paradiso.nl or www.melkweg.nl. It's also going to start snowing this weekend and the first outdoors iceskating rings are opening, next Saturday I'll give a try with the kids at http://www.ijsopdebrink.nl/ in Laren. Then maybe I'm going to grab some great food at http://www.hoteldegoudfazant.nl/ in Amsterdam, they have the best dessert in town, “hemelse mudder”!

TUG YOURSELF IN



Our Gracewood and Vertigo bedding has landed in the webshop. Both are made of 100% cotton and comes in two sizes (140 x 200 cm and 140 x 220 cm) and has a piping and a cool leather label. The duvet cover has a zipper in the bottom, so you won't wake up in the middle of the night with the duvet falling out. The bedding comes in a matching tote bag.
