Hello my lovely readers! I just wanted to take a minute to say what a pleasure it has been writing this design column over the past year.
I have been able to really reach out to the design community all over the world and bring to you what I believe to be the very latest, hottest design trends and products for children.
As a local Utahn in town for the summer, I have been extremely impressed with the local talent I have found thus far. From exclusive boutiques to the great company that I will be featuring today, Utah does not slack on style.
While perusing Salt Lake's premier Interiors magazine, I stumbled uponOilo, a company run by a mother and daughter team who produces a modern collection of bedding, furniture, lighting and accessories for baby. I had a wonderful opportunity to meet the fabulous women behind the brand.
As Annalisa, mother of two, Graphic Designer and daughter of Dorte, an established Interior Designer, was expecting her first baby, she had trouble finding quality made, contemporary bedding that suited her modern taste. Scandinavian roots run deep for Annalisa and Dorte, and both designers have always been drawn to clean lines and bold geometrics.
The two decided to combine forces and create a fresh new approach to style-setting nursery decor, chic baby bedding, and designer home furnishings.
And so,Oilowas born.
The collection began with baby bedding in 4 modern fabric lines, but has since expanded to lighting, pillows, wall art and even adult bedding! I got a sneak peak at some of the products they are launching soon, and trust me, it's all fabulous.
My absolute favorite piece would have to be theirglider. I got to feel the faux leather fabric they use to upholster their pieces. Just imagine the most supple, aged piece of leather you can imagine and then times it by two. Easily cared for, with customizable color schemes, Oilo's faux leather gliders are the perfect addition to any nursery.
Right up there with my favorites is of course their baby bedding. Tall, thick cotton bumpers are filled with foam to prevent the “smushing” effect that will undoubtedly happen with a lower quality bumper. Oilo's bumpers provide a polished, 'put together' look that when paired with their lighting and accessories, finish off your dream nursery!
