Spotted: Nice lighting Mrs. Prime Minister

I’ve been in bed feeling a bit poorly, which wasn’t so bad because it let me watch season 2 of Borgen in one go! I don’t watch much TV but this series has me totally hooked, right down to the PM Birgitte Nyborg’s expertly tailored blazer in every hue of grey, navy and emerald. However, my favorite part about any Scandinavian TV series or movie is always that a) people drinks coffee all day long (very true) and you also notice how important design is to all the Scandi countries.

The main light in Nyborg’s office is the spendy, classic PH Artichoke Light which we would love to have haning over a dining room table thankyouverymuch. Image

The other piece that we’ve coveted for years is the Prince Chair by Louise Campbell, which came out some years ago but still looks really current. Personally, I don’t love it in the PM’s TV room because the other pieces seem more classic but, as a chair, that’s made of laser-cut steel and neoprene, it’s gorgeous.
