Charlotte Swiden is a Swedish born designer living in Melbourne, who launched her homewares label Swiden Designs just under a year ago. She is based in Collingwood, and evens shares a studio with some other designers I half know, so GOD KNOWS why I haven't come across her work until now. Doh. Sorry Charlotte! Better late than never!
Charlotte's latest collection TIVOLIVAT is pictured above - ain't it the cutest!? Inspired by funfair rides, fairy floss & ferris wheels, TIVOLIVAT is a play on words in Swedish. TIVOLI is another word for fun park, and LIVAT means exhilarating or lively. Aww. I guess you can take the Swede out of Scandinavia, but it seems you can't take the Scandi cuteness out of her work!
Beautiful smile-inducing stuff!
