I have a spacious kitchen, but unfortunately, the sink area is in the "dungeon", facing away from the windows into a dark counter/corner area and next to a tall light-sapping fridge. (horrible space planning/design)
Even though the mirror would take a lot of cleaning maintenance, it would help reflect the light from the windows behind the sink user and brighten up that area during the day. In short, this idea really intrigues me.

But will they ever open a store in the U.S.??? Preferably in the SF Bay Area.

Agree w irritablevowel (haha).

This is a rare instance where I like the art tons more than the furniture and rest of interior design (which are middle-brow and fine, but kinda blah). It's often the other way around...

Thanks, Qzie! I had the exact same question.
Majorly lusting after this lamp. Unfortunately, I'm in SF.

I just want to know where I could get a yellow metal pendant lamp like her kitchen pendant lamp. I would like one exactly like that. I've seen them in hardware supply stores but not in that color.

Thanks!

OK, where's the yellow pendant light from? I'm looking for something like that for my kitchen.

Nice on the office/studio and nice on the music play list!!! Beautiful wall shelving and brackets. Would love to know the source of the brackets, if possible. An AREAWARE item?

I understand it's maybe not too late for some folks, but ideally, one would throw out the summer solstice party idea maybe a week or 2 weeks before the actual date. In cities like SF and NY and LA, you need to give friends (if not yourself, the host) some advance notice, before they make other plans.

Lovely. I just wish they had softer fabrics and textiles.

This is a fine example of great texture in a space, without adding too much clutter.

Oh, what a lovely apartment for a single, or even a couple. And in Copenhagen too.
I love white-washed brick. You have fantastic taste in lamps and lighting.

Can I move in?
Are there other vacant units like yours?

That's a beautiful little space you have. It's small, but balanced. The kitchen is awesome. I love the yellow front door. Your furniture only complements the space and details.

It reminds me of growing up in Denmark during the 80s. I think 70s stuff, when treated right, can look just as vibrant and up-to-date as other vintage.

What do you use to play this "colored noise" then? Your smartphone or other mobile device?

I was interested in how exactly the Ikea shelving is custom... is it in how you've attached 3 different types of shelves together into one connected set?
I understand the feelings re: a lack of floor plan and pics of how the space flows, but I can still see it's a very nice space. And I do like that they have lots of stuff, but they've been tidy and neat about their collection and it doesn't overwhelm the space. I like the use of the Ikea shelving.
And I don't think the kitchen is any embarassment. It is neat, but nicely used and lived in.

Thank you so much for posting this interview. I love both Julia Rothman's and Caroline Hwang's work! I had no idea they shared a studio.

Yes, sounds like C&B want to compete with West Elm's Market line. And now we also have Target's Threshold line.
