Orient pendants, and a change of rules

A few weeks ago, I posted a question on facebook, asking what you wanted to see more of, and what you liked best about the blog. I got many great answers, and one recurring wish was more products. I’ve been thinking about that, and since my ”no products” rule has sometimes been holding me back from posting great images, I decided to let go of it.


From now on I will occasionally post about products. But only if the photos are really nice and I like the product, and not because some company tells me to blog their things. I hope you all are ok with this decision!

Tonight I’d like to present these exclusive new pictures from Lightyears, a Danish lighting brand that always have excellent photos and hire only the best stylists for their product shots. I think this is really important if you want to be seen in the blogosphere, where images are the only thing that counts.
Below the pictures of the new Orient pendants, designed in 1963 by Jo Hammerborg and relaunched exactly 50 years after its creation, is a little collage I made of older pictures from Lightyears, just to give you a feel for what they do.

Ems Designblogg is all about Scandinavian style, soft minimalism and beautiful functionalism. The blog is Sweden's oldest interior design blog and has been up and running since 2005. I strive to fill it with a mix of inspirational and aspirational images from all over the world, while keeping true to my own voice and style, where transparency is key and creative criticism is highly valued. When I'm not blogging, I bake chocolate cakes for my kids, hang around Stockholm's cafés and drink way too many cappuccinos, do some occasional styling work, and try to fit in some inspiring travel adventures in between.
