Ingela city prints from Lagom

Ingela Paris

Ingela Arrhenius has been a frequent visitor on this site recently, from her alphabet print to her dish cloths design. However, how can we resist showing you more when she keeps coming up with designs as attractive as these city prints, available from Lagom?

She's produced prints, illustrating the delights of three of our favourite European cities. Each shows some of the city's landmarks and unique charms, as seen through the eyes of a Swedish illustrator and executed in her retro style. The baguettes, macaroons and Mona Lisa of Paris is shown in the print above, while you can check out London's pubs, punks and city gents over the page. The third city? Some Swedish style courtesy of Stockholm. 

Each print is limited to 200 and cost £45.

A-Z poster by Ingela Arrhenius

Ingela atoz

Ingela Arrhenius has been busy. It was only earlier in the week that we featured her retro dish cloth designs. This A-Z Poster offers a more conventional way to showcase her art. 

It uses the traditional A-Z format, running from Apple to Zebra, all executed in her distinctive retro style. The vignettes are charming in themselves (I'm especially fond of the 'M' which looks like a 'Moon landing') but also look great together as an overall piece of art. Perfect for a very stylish kids room. 

The poster is sold unframed and costs 23 euros.

Retro dish cloths by Ingela Arrhenius

Arrhenius dishcloths
Ingela Arrhenius is becoming a regular on this site, and now her 50s and 60s influenced designs are more accessible than ever with these retro dish cloths.

We've featured quite a few of these Scandinavian designer dish cloths before – a far cry from the usual soggy washing-up implements. There are three different designs to choose from here, each with its own cute creature. Take your pick from an owl, a cat or a hen, all depicted in her distinctive style. 

The cloths cost £3.75 each.

Ingela Arrhenius Tivoli Poster

Ingela Arrhenius is fast becoming a favourite with her latest offering, the Tivoli Poster being up her usual high standard.

Ingela is based in Stockholm, and Scandinavian design influences her style along with other 1950s and 1960s designs. Like many of her other designs, Tivoli is probably intended for children, but has a charm that appeals to adults too. The poster measures 50cm by 70cm and is sold unframed, so you can mount it in a frame of your choice.

It costs £18.95 from Hus and Hem.
