And today (Happy Friday!) brings me to my final day of reflection on the Stockholm Design Fair. It was such an amazing experience to see so much talent in one place. I’ve spent most of this week focusing on student and indie design (Part 1, Part 2, Part 3), but the big kids were out in full force, too — everyone from Marimekko to Design House Stockholm — with their newest additions to their product lines. So many fun goodies — good thing I didn’t have any room in my suitcase; there were a few things that I just might have tried to smuggle out of there! — Amy A.

(Kartrin even created leather scarves for the staff — I was a little obsessed with them in a cowgirl fantasy kind of way — they’ll be for sale on her site soon.)
