In our blog we will write about hotels and restaurants around the world whose interiors stand out the little extra. A few months ago we visited a furniture fair in Warsaw and stayed at the newly opened Hotel Raffles. Their decor is completely in Ruth & Joanna’s taste with a lot of velvet, lovely colors, brass and mirror glass.
Below is a nice slideshow of pictures from the rooms, lobby, bar, restaurant and spa.
Sanne Alexandra´s inspiring home
Our friends Louise W Hjort (Stylebylojs) has helped the designer and influencer Sanne Alexandra with the renovation and styling of her and her husbands apartment in Stockholm. The result is amazing! We are happy to see that they have used some of our products in the apartment, like our Becca Lamp, 130 cm wall mirror, Fiona bench and Fleur Side Tables.
Here are some pics from Sannes home and the pictures are taken by Skandiamäklarna:

Round wall mirrors
Wall mirrors are not only stylish and pretty but also gives deep to a room. Round mirrors give a soft and welcoming impression and therefore we think that every home should have at least one round mirror. We are particularly fond of discrete mirrors without too much details, we think only a thin metal frame is enough. If you want to make an extra statement, choose a mirror that is generous in its diameter, at least 120 cm. But if you want a mirror above, for example, a console table, you can choose a mirror that is about 100 cm in diameter. Below you will find some inspiring pictures of interior with round beautiful mirrors.
In our collection we have mirrors in various sizes and shapes and when it comes to round mirrors you can choose between size 60 cm, 100 cm and 130 cm in diameter. The frame is available in polished brass, chrome and black chrome.
A material that really got a boost within interior design in recent years is the beautiful velvet, and it looks like it is a material that is here to stay! We love to work with velvet and therefore we sell everything from velvet sofas and velvet armchairs to velvet poufs and velvet benches. The history of velvet dates back hundreds of years in time, some claiming that the velvet developed already 2000 years ago. With its beautiful and soft appearance and high production cost, the velvet was associated with royalty, but today it is widely used in both interior and fashion. Velvet can be made from natural materials such as cotton but also from synthetic materials such as polyester or viscose. We sell furniture made of both cotton and polyester velvet.
If you don’t want a whole sofa in velvet, every home should at least have a smaller piece of velvet furniture like a bench, pouf or armchair and we can almost guarantee that it will enhance the experience of any room!
Below is a small selection of our velvet products:
Since Ruth & Joanna designs and sells marble tables in the form of coffee tables, console tables and side tables, we think it is fun to tell a little about this unique material that has been popular for several years when it comes to interior. Not so strange though because who can resist this beautiful and exclusive material?
Marble is formed by subjecting limestone to high pressure and temperature, which leads to changes in the original chemical composition of the rock. Did you know that pure marble is completely white but has different colors and patterns due to pollution?
Perhaps the most famous kind of marble is the white-gray Carrara marble, which comes from the city of Carrara in northern Italy, and the oldest mines were opened in 200 years BC. Another well-known and popular marble that we work with is the black Marquina marble that comes from northern Spain. It is recognized by its deep black color and white grain. A third marble variety we work with is the incredibly beautiful green marble that gets any room to stand out.
Below we present the marble products we are providing:
