news on the home front

SØSTRENE GRENE - SPRING 2016 - THE COLLECTION IS AVAILABLE FROM

10 MARCH


IMPRESSIONS OF A LIFE AT THE TOP THE ARTIST’S TOUCH Anna and Clara have spent many inspiring hours at the spacious, light-filled home of artist Ole, an old friend of the family. Late one evening in Ole’s studio, an idea surfaced for a new interior design collection based on Ole’s insight that life cannot be lived according to a formula. This season, Anna and Clara have furnished their mood board with ’60s and ’70s colour and patterns, soft Scandinavian bohemian styling and Ole’s originals. Art can stir up the mood in the home. Keywords for the spring interiors collection are creativity, colour, nature, wood, basketwork and soft textiles. And what is liberating is that these things do not have to match or be coordinated. A relaxed lifestyle is the order of the day. There is something extremely pleasant about spaces that exude personality and informality, and where furnishing and details reflect the comfort to be gained from good living. Welcome to a new season.

es, With waaramnedstCwlaisrha Ann The products shown will be available in all Søstrene Grene stores from 10 March 2016 and while stocks last.

A DANISH ICON OLE KNUDSEN - KNOWN FOR BEING UNKNOWN Ole Knudsen, also known as Unknown Knudsen, born 1939. Member of the Experimental Art School from 1961-65, which was founded as a kind of protest against the established art world. ”We wanted to create a whole new movement in art”, Ole Knudsen remembers. All of Ole Knudsen’s paintings have a story to tell, but their content is not always easily decoded. His artistic gift is in expressing his inner life and making each work an experience: let the colours talk and the content touch you.

What does it mean for you to live with art?

Can you describe your artistic taste?

How do you see your own artworks?

It means everything. Art sets the mood and affects me as a person.

I choose with my heart, and I also lean towards older styles more than the new. My own art harks back to the 1960s and ’70s.

I see an expression of my inner self.

BRAND STORY ANNA AND CLARA INVITE YOU TO ENTER A SENSUOUS WORLD OF CLASSICAL TONES, AESTHETICS AND COSINESS. In 1973, the wonderful tale of Søstrene Grene ( Danish for the Grene sisters ) began in Aarhus, Denmark. It is the story of the two elderly Grene sisters, Anna and Clara, who diligently work to create little, bright differences in the everyday. With great passion, the sisters develop new designs within their product categories, e.g. interior design, stationery, gift wrapping, crafts, kitchen goods and toys for children. The stores receive a wealth of new products every week, and many of these items are only sold for short periods of time. “Variety is the spice of life,” as Clara says, although some items are included in the permanent product range. Common to all products is an elegant and feminine expression that brings beauty to the everyday life, with prices that will surprise and delight you

Welcome to the wonderful world of Anna and Clara. But remember – only buy what you need!
