This week has been bonkers! We’ve (my textile class. I’ve dubbed us the Textile Ten because yes, there are ten of us. I know, clever) been preparing for our final exhibition in a week by putting the finishing touches onto our digital prints and our research papers. In the middle of this madness I met with the delightful Trine Weng of Casalinga here in Copenhagen. Her main staple is ceramics like knobs, dishes, birds, and candleholders but she also has a stellar jewelry line and children’s clothing. Exploring her quaint apartment and showroom was an absolute joy. She’s a big collector of all things funky and modern from vintage shops to hand-me-downs to throw aways in the courtyard. I’d say it works quite nicely indeed.

Her child-friendly living room displays elements of clean-lined Danish modernism with traces of pure comfort like two owl-shaped bean bags and of course a stellar ceramic collection featuring one of her favorites, Bjørn Wiinblad who was popular in the 60s and 70s (and who I’m pretty sure might become a favorite of mine too.)
Trine’s showroom is just a quick walk around the corner. She’s busy preparing for a fair right now so she’s been painting shelves and tables but I found it a wonderful creative mess. I wish I had more than 2 suitcases so I could buy her gold knobs and butter dishes. until next week! -b
