Almedahls 1950s Belle Amie fabric

Another great reissue from Almedahls, this time the 1950s Belle Amie fabric – a 1950s design by Marianne Westman. 

If the floral, white and blue pattern reminds you of something, it could be Westman's own Mon Amie tableware design designed at around the same period (and which we featured last year when they introduced it onto some new designs). A classic and pretty pattern, it's bound to add some Scandinavian style to your home. 

The fabric costs £19.95 a metre.

Marianne Westman 1950s My Garden tray

Westman tray

We've recently featured some new products based on Marianne Westman's Picknick. Another of her 1950s designs is reinterpreted here for a new market with this My Garden tray

The tray features a pattern that was originally used on the My Garden porcelain. It shows a platter worth of fish, itself reminiscent of the Jonathan Adler's Neptune design that we featured last week. If you like this design, it's also available on a tea towel and on a cutting board. 

This tray costs $28

1950s-designed Marianne Westman Picknick coasters

Picknick coaster
We covered the reissue of Marianne Westman's 1956 Picknick design last year, and in turn the chopping boards that also used the design. It gets a further lease of life with these new Picknick coasters

Each of the square coasters reproduces one of the foodie motifs from the design. Use them with the rest of the Picknick homeware range and you've got everything you need to set up your own indoor picnic. 

Simple and sweet, a set of the four coasters costs £11.40.

ISAK Harvest Wallpaper

Harvest wallpaper
This Harvest Wallpaper is another great design courtesy of ISAK.

With its depiction of fish, onions, peas and herbs, this design references Marianne Westman's classic 1956 Picknick design (which was reissued last year). The same basic ingredients have been given an update with ISAK's distinctive Scandinavian 70s style and have been made available for your wall, not just your dining table. Like all of ISAK's wallpapers, you send them the width and height of the area you want covering and they custom make the rolls for your wall. 

The paper costs £38 per square metre.

1950s Marianne Westman-designed Picknick chopping boards


Back in July, we featured the reissue of a classic – the Marianne Westman-designed Picknick homeware range. Originally designed in 1956, it's a Scandinavian mid-century classic that still looks shaper today. If you invested in that, you'll no doubt be keen on owning these newly-launched Picknick cutting boards.

Like the rest of the range, the design features food laid out for a picnic, this time on a wooden board that's been laminated and available in a choice of three designs and sizes.

Prices start at £20.47.

Körsbärsträdgården fabric by Marianne Westman reissued by Almedahls


This Körsbärsträdgården fabric is another Marianne Westman design dug out from the archives by Almedahls.

Although the name doesn't exactly trip off the tongue (unless you are fluent in Swedish), the name translates as cherry orchard, perhaps obvious from the charming cherries and cherry blossom visible in the design. 

It's been reissued alongside Picknick to coincide with Westman's 80th birthday and still looks pretty and fresh today. The design is printed onto a 50% linen and 50% cotton mix. 

The fabric costs £29 a metre.
