Eszter Radnóczy, interior designer in Budapest talks about Stockholm Furniture Fair: “Finely tuned, carefully selected – that’s why we come back.”
The Stockholm Furniture Fair, celebrating its 70th anniversary this year, was held in February 2020. The team of este’r partners are regular guests at the fair. “Finely tuned, careful selection presented at a people-centred and human-scale event, we are excited to travel to Stockholm every year,” says Eszter Radnóczy, chief designer and founder of este’r partners.
The Scandinavian furniture fair is a kind of counterpoint to Milan: while there are spectacular new trends, Stockholm is balanced, restrained and human. The overall view of the fair is marked by many pastel shades, emphasis on wood and close-to-nature lifestyle which is typical of Scandinavian countries. We asked the team of este’r partners to tell us which brands and why they were their favorites this year.

In addition to acoustic plants made from recycled materials, the wood veneer pendant skirt lamps with their folding structure are playful and cozy solutions for modern urban spaces
The Cocoon Lounge Chair is a good example of how to transform a traditional form into a modern, usable design object. Beautiful curvy wood frames the special rattan sides and the upholstery.
For me, one of the nicest stands was the Baux company’s, which deals with acoustic panels – the simple yet special pavilion really caught my eye.
The stand of one of our business partners, Forestier Partners, was also interesting, and its simplicity was beautiful, the lamps of all the large collections were on display.
The Zilenzio stand captivated me with its clarity and pastel colors.
I also found impressive the Modulyss stand, where their materials created color harmonies.
A combination of technical and decorative lamps in pastel colors with inspiring geometric shapes.
