Throwback Thursdays!

#TBT Design Museum Danmark 2012. A glorious day, one I'll never ever ever forget! We started off with the Finn Juhl centennial exhibition (how lucky were we!) exhibiting some of his best furniture and original working drawings and then made our way through the contemporary 20th Century furniture designs. Seeing such an abundance of pieces by prolific Danish designers who's furniture we can mostly only dream of having in our shop or house was, well, a dream come true.#throwbackthursdays
