  • Designer Profile : Out There Interiors talks to Achim Rehahn

    Achim Rehahn, Owner, 8 Seasons Designs Achim Rehahn, Owner, 8 Seasons Designs

     

    The team at Out There Interiors loves the quirky lighting designs that 8 Seasons Designs are renowned for, and which are suitable for indoor, and outdoor, use.   With Summer approaching rapidly and the chance to extend a glorious evening by installing beautiful outdoor lighting it seemed apt to talk to Achim Rehahn, Owner of 8 Seasons.

     

    8 Seasons Designs ethos is to combine fun with practicality in your light design. What prompted you to start the company and what were your initial designs?

    I saw an illuminated item made of polyethylene in Italy. I then thought why has no one so far designed Christmas items out of this great material? Following this thought I designed the Shining Star as our first, and still, most popular item. Unfortunately we first imported these products from Asia and the quality was very poor. We were very unhappy with the result and from that day on we decided to go a different way. Today all our products are made in Germany. High quality and competitive prices are our highest goals.

     

    Butterfly and Flower Lights

    What is your most popular design?  We are a German company. In our own country we sell Shining Stars the most. Abroad we sell much more shining globes and cubes. Furthermore our illuminated flowers and planters are very popular in countries like England where the garden culture is very strong.

    Munich in the Summer means…?  Actually for me Munich in the summer means beer garden. That has nothing to do with our lights but that's what Munich stands for in the summer for me. You should try them.

    What are you most proud of?

    We started this company in 2008 with nothing more than the idea of illuminated Christmas items. I maybe got 100 “no's” until the first customer said “yes we will buy this”. Today we are the leading company in this type of products in our country. That makes me happy but also keeps us pushing every day to enlarge this position.

     

    Rabbit Lights

    What is your favourite design from your current outdoors collection? I love our shining rabbits. At Easter time this year they were the top sellers

    What or who inspires you, on a day to day basis? I have 3 lovely children and a wonderful wife. They give me power and a reason to work for.

     

    What is a normal working day like for you and your team?

    Actually we have no normal working day. Every day brings its own advantages and tasks we have to manage. Every day we just try to be a little better than the day before. This is a quite easy goal every day which makes a big difference at the end of the year.

     

    Sandcastle

     

    What would be the ultimate fantasy light that you’d love to design? For instance: A giant dinosaur? A Castle? A Birthday Cake? And why? 

    I don't know. If you have an idea just let me know. If we like it we will produce it and name you as the designer. :)

    OTI Note : So tempting!  The child in us would love to see a sandcastle light - for a piece of British Seaside Fun all year long!

     

    What’s your favourite film?Rocky – Hope you did not expect something with more profoundness. :)

     

     

    If you could have personally designed one item in history what would it have been and why? 

    The IPAD. The combination of a total new product in a perfectly designed case with its intuitive way of functioning set a new class. Far beyond everything people ever thought of before.

    Can you give us a sneaky peak into what new designs you and your team are currently working on? What can we expect to see in 2015/2016?

    We will introduce some new designs all year round lights in late 2015 and some new Christmas lights in early 2016.

    What’s your favourite meal? A barbecue with family and friends. Surrounded by people I love all kinds of barbecue - it tastes good.

  • Designer Profile :  Out There Interiors talks to Betina Stampe

    Betina Stampe, Creative Director & Founder, Bloomingville Betina Stampe, Creative Director & Founder, Bloomingville

    Originally founded in Denmark in 2000, from its modest beginnings with only 2 employ­ees Bloomingville has continued to grow from strength to strength to the recognisable design house it is today. 

    Out There Interiors talks to Bloomingville's Founder and Creative Director Betina Stampe about family life, Nordic Cool and what inspires her and the brand.

    Bloomingville signature style is a mixture of raw products with a nostalgic Scandinavian twist. Which piece from the collection would you describe as being the most representative of this design heritage?

    In the past years we have become much more modern, but the Nordic emphasis will always be present here. For the spring season we have hit that note with our botanical tableware. The floral print is of wild field flowers – a very Nordic twist on a floral print.

    Why do you think ‘Nordic Cool’ continues to be as popular across the world?

    I think the simplicity appeals to many people. For most, the home is a heaven and place to detach from stress and hassle….Nordic Cool provides a very calm setting…

    Denmark in the Summer means…?

    Warmth, long evenings, koldskål ( a Danish dessert), new lanterns for the garden. 

     

    What are you most proud of?

    Other than my kids :) the fact that Bloomingville has become the brand it is today – and we give people the chance change their homes with each season.

     

    What is your favourite product from the SS/15 collection?

    I love our plant hangers – they are perfect for summer and both indoors and outside. We have many different ones and it is impossible for me to choose a favourite.

    What or who inspires you, on a day to day basis?

    Inspiration is found all over and it hits me at the strangest times – I even dream up style at might sometimes. We work with a young team of designers as well, and interns and they are also very inspiring to work with.

     

    What is a normal working day like for you and your team?

    Depends on where in the season we are. Right now we are designing S/S 16, so days are spent drawing, looking for inspiration and going over samples.

     

    How would you describe your own personal interior design style?  Are you influenced by the seasons?

    I am very influenced by the seasons and my home always changes with them. My style is reflection of the life my husband and I live with 4 teenagers in the house. I love to take classic Scandinavian design and mix with the seasonal styles from Bloomingville.

     

    Your family is obviously an integral part of your life. (Betina & Husband Simon have a family of four girls) What activity do you and your family like doing the most on a weekend together?

    It is clear that when you work like we do, family time becomes intense and we make a great effort to have time together. We spend time at our summerhouse, go out to dinner and travel, so we share in some great experiences as well.

     

     What’s your favourite film?

    A French film; “The Intouchables”

    The Intouchables The Intouchables

     

    If you could have personally designed one item in history what would it have been and why?

    There is so many great designs throughout time…..I don’t know that I could say one, but it would have to be the perfect combination of an iconic shape, a perfect function and beauty.

     

    Can you give us a sneaky peak into what concepts you and your team are currently working on? What can we expect to see in 2015/2016?

    We have worked a lot with different materials and textures – some used in unexpected ways – there's a lot to look forward to….

     

    Are there any areas that you’d love for Bloomingville to branch into? And any brands in alternative fields that you’d love to collaborate with?

    We always stay on our toes to keep making wonderful collections – and lately we have added our Mini for kids and expanded our bath selection with a line of home and body care products. You never know what the future will bring – we will do ours to stay sharp.

    Of Courage & Dash's #PimpMyFrench entry, Sarah Stopforth (C&D Contributor) says:

    "The pimping involved sanding, wood-staining, re-spraying, and replacing the handles to create a soft and rosy look. We tried to create a sense of intrigue by using bright colours on the inside of the drawer to give a nice little nice surprise when it was opened!...

    IMG_20150319_170723 The deer get a golden makeover

    We had been looking for ideas on Pinterest and were instantly inspired by the gold dipped leg look. From this point we wanted a subtle but warm colour to complement the gold. Lastly the toy searching began and ended in our two deer being put through their transformation, a golden snow storm, finishing the coffee table off with an English but eccentric touch."

  • Behind The Scenes : Mollie Makes #PimpMyFrench Entry

     

    The Mollie Makes team have combined grey and neon with an added cross stitch detail The Mollie Makes team have combined grey and neon with an added cross stitch detail to fantastic effect

    Charlie Moorby, Deputy Editor at Mollie Makes says of Mollie Makes' team entry:

    "If there’s one thing we love at Mollie Makes, it’s a materials mash-up!

    We wanted to give the bench a makeover that represented the personalities of our team, whilst paying homage to the creative brand we work on, so we knew it had to include: neon pink (our favourite colour), chunky stitching (we’re all about the yarn) and pom poms (because we believe everything should have a pom on it).

    We used Annie Sloan’s Chalk Paint (www.anniesloan.com) for the grey base, Rustoleum spray paints (www.rustoleumspraypaint.com) for the neon pink accents and gold drawer interior. We wanted to make the inside of the drawer feel like a bit of a treasure trove – ready to be filled with yarn, of course.

    Our focus point, the cross stitched rose, is a design by Audrey Smit (www.thislittlestreet.com), which we stitched in bright tapestry yarns. We loved the idea of taking a technique traditionally reserved for fabrics and super-sizing it so it could be stitched directly onto wood.

     

    Finally, we sprayed the handles white, wrapped them with yarn and decorated with a few pom poms before hitting the studio with our infamous pineapple decoration.

    Ta-da!"

    Cross Stitch becomes fun, crafty & interactive in the hands of Pippa Blenkinsop Cross Stitch becomes fun, crafty & interactive in the hands of Pippa Blenkinsop

     

    Period Living's entry was conceived, made and styled by Pippa Blenkinsop, Period Living's Content Producer...

    Colour combination moodboard

    "The motivation behind my ‘Pimp my French’, upcycled bench was to create something crafty, fun and interactive. I love to juxtapose different styles and use mixed media, and, as the bench was French-inspired, I thought incorporating industrial-style pegboard – reminiscent of retro hardware and general stores – would present not only a interesting contrast to the elegant unit, but also provide a canvas for some crafty cross stitching. In order to do this I had to slightly alter the original design of the piece from a drawer unit to a cabinet with hinged door; this way the pegboard can be accessed from either side for easy stitching. Colour-wise, I am drawn to bright, jewel shades, like a moth to a flame, so there was no question that bright teal, hot pink and citron green would form the palette for my project."

We live our lives with the motto 'create something every day' and we work together on lots of things. My first book, 'Maker Spaces' has just been published. I was so inspired by all the amazing interior projects the makers in the book had created that we have both been planning and making things for our home ever since. This project with Out There Interiors was a great excuse to create another piece together.

  • Behind The Scenes: 2LovelyGays #PimpMyFrench entry

    Jordan and Russell say of their #PimpMyFrench entry...

    "As soon as we saw the piece of furniture we knew that we wanted to focus on its functionality. Not just giving it a makeover, but totally re-inventing it. Once we took the drawer out it totally changed the way we viewed the object and so we made it into two pieces, connected by their use.

    customised french coffee table

    Spray paint

    We then wanted to find that visual connection and for this we wanted an element that was a total juxtaposition to the original French roots and that's why we chose brass metal tubing. As if the original piece had not just been pimped, but taken over by the invading metal and new purpose.

    We are not metal workers, but we know a man who is amazing with metal, so we had a meeting with Primary Grey and a collaboration was born.

    We gave the bench new life as a hall set, with space for shoes inside, a seat to perch on to tie your shoes, a pot plant of your choice to make you happy and an umbrella stand.

    We united the elements with bold sapphire blue from Dulux and pieces of scrap brass tubing from Primary Grey's workshop. We kept the French handles and leg shape as a reminder of its past life and added a touch of terracotta to bring the piece right up to date."
