Copenhagen-based Ferm Living – established in 2005 by graphic designer Trine Andersen – designs many of its products in-house, but additions to the collection include a range of hand-printed textiles with graphic patterns by New York-based illustrator and designer Alyson Fox.

Irregularly shaped forms on blue, grey and brown backgrounds are hand-printed on organic cotton and used to cover a range of square and oblong pillows. Designs by Fox are also applied to a quilted bedspread and a fringed rug covered with chunky blue zig-zags and grey dashes.

Among Ferm Living's own designs are a range of concrete plant pots and pastel-coloured trellising. The rectangular and circular frames striped with diagonal lines can be used to support growing plants, or positioned against a wall as decoration. The Plant Wall comes in four powder-coated colours – pastel grey, rose, mint-green and an ochre tone named curry.

Collect Vases are a set of four vessels with brightly coloured rubberised paintwork. Three tall vases with grey, pink and blue exteriors stack inside a stout black container. The rubberised coating was applied to dampen the clinking noise when the glass pieces are collected together.

A small patch of gold or royal-blue machine embroidery adds texture to the two-dimensional print of the Fragment Cushion, which features a pattern of layered pastel and monochrome quadrilaterals.

An updated version of the brand's tapered Wire Basket has petrol-blue paintwork. A oiled pale oak top, which the studio say is indicative of Danish design, can be balanced on the rim to convert the basket into a table.

The Kelim Rug has a linear monochrome pattern featuring intersecting black lines and a chain of triangles on a white background. The fringed rugs are woven on a hand loom using hand-dyed wool.

Ferm Living has also expanded its duck-egg blue Neu dinner set, which is coated with a reactive glaze that produces minute variations in the colouring of each piece. The range, based on Bauhaus design, includes a jug with an angular pointed spout.
