Prepare for New Year


Scandinavian "Kransekage"


In a traditional Scandinavian New Year we serve the classic "Kransekage". 
This cake is all marzipan goodness but not the easiest cake to make.
Maja Chocolat has put a modern spin on this cake with an "easy" recipe for New Years. 
Behind the berry and gold glitter exterior you will find delicious liquorice, soft nougat and marzipan with a hint of orange.

RECIPE (15 pcs.):

Ingredients

Cakes:
200 g marzipan
60 g of Powdered Icing sugar
20 g of egg white

Flavours:
Soft nougat
Orange or lemon zest
Raw Liquorice powder
Chopped chocolate

Garnish:
Butter
Sugar
Freeze-dried raspberry powder
Freeze-dried blackcurrant powder
Edible gold dust

Method:
Put marzipan, powdered sugar and egg white in a bowl and whisk together well.
Add the flavor(s). Divide the mixed dough into small silicone molds and bake for 10-15 at 175 degrees until golden and fine.
Let the cakes cool completely before decorating.

Garnish:
Melt the butter. Mix sugar and freeze-dried berries or gold dust.
Dip the cookies in melted butter and roll them in the fine decorating powders.
Let them dry and store them in an airtight container until the clock strikes 00:00 
and it's time to pop the Champagne.

FOUR DECORATIONS - CANDLE HOLDER CIRCLE

FOUR DECORATIONS
- CANDLE HOLDER CIRCLE 


We have asked four of the leading danish florists to make their interpretation of
the perfect Christmas decoration using our Candle Holder Circle. 
Here are the final results and some thoughts behind:

ISBLOMSTEN: 
Camilla has used the unique and distinctive flower 
Scabiosa Stellata to compliment the simple yet minimalistic look in the Candle Holder Circle. 
If dried the Scabiosa Stellata flower gets a beautiful brass coloured nuance, looking like small Christmas ornaments with stars in the middle. 

BLOMSTERSKURET: 
The styling is Nordic - warm colours from the Malus Floribunda matches with the brass circle and leather harness. A hint of white from the soft cotton buds gives it a "snowy" look which works as a fine contrast to the larch branches. 

LOUISE MOESTRUP: 
The idea was to make a decoration that was refined in an unpretentious way with materials solely from Denmark. By doing that, Louise hopes to modernize the concept of "advent" a bit. 

KAKTUS KØBENHAVN:
For Kaktus København, it was important that the decoration had a timeless look and could be used not only for Christmas but all year around. They used the cactus as "Green Sculptures" to create a wow-effect. This decoration is not only modern, but creates a botanical universe which gives an esthetic and exotic look to any interior.

ferm LIVING summerparty x BLAD Magazine


ferm LIVING summerparty x BLAD Magazine

Some weeks back we launched our new AW15 collection at the Northmodern fair in Copenhagen.
To celebrate this as well as the beautiful Danish summer nights we decided to throw a party for friends of the house in our HQ courtyard. In order to get the mood and setting right, we teamed up with the two talented girls behind local BLAD magazine and let them get creative with our Hexagon vases, Geometry vases and outdoor pots. After many hours of love and ‘plant magic’ from Liv and Louise, our otherwise minimalistic concrete backyard was turned into a green and cosy oasis – a welcoming hide-away right in the middle of our urban neighbourhood. 

Thanks to everyone who joined and made it an amazing evening!

A Merry Mishab x ferm LIVING










Once our designs have left the hands of our creative team and have been put into production, we sort of ‘say goodbye’ to them, as they will now move on to live their own lives in homes all over the world. Maybe that’s why we find it so much fun and inspiring to see how our items look in real settings of actual households: how are they styled, in which context are they being used etc.

We teamed up with talented US blogger and photographer Jennifer from AMM Blog to let her fit some of the ferm LIVING spring news in to her beautiful home, and here’s the result of Jennifer giving her personal spin on some of our favorites such as the Neu Pitcher. One of her aims was to show the products in a personal environment where they’d actually be used.

The design is used on our hand printed tea towels and paper napkins. Both the tea towels and paper napkins come in three color ways. Blue, black and bordeaux.
