Nina's Apartment wins The Creative Award!



So, so chuffed to have won The Creative Award, one of the Life with Style Awards, given out to lifestyle businesses in the Aberdeen area. A fantastic evening at Aberdeen's Ardoe House Hotel, organised by Trend Magazine; lovely venue, beautiful decor, superb food and great entertainment. And to top it all off, I got an award to take home! I couldn't be happier. So many talented businesses in the room, I didn't think I would win, but I did. Needless to say the speech didn't go too smoothly...but I'm sure my beaming surprised face made up for that!

Just want to say thanks to everyone who has supported me and my business in the past three years, to the judges of the Life with Style Awards, and also a massive congratulations to all other finalists and winners on the night!

Niels Møller Danish mid-century modern dining set new in the shop


We acquired a beautiful original teak mid-century dining set by Danish designer Niels Otto Møller. Wonderful craftsmanship and quality, timeless design.

This is surely one of the most classic designs you'll ever see come out of Denmark. So much of this design sets it apart. From the perfectly executed joinery that connects the teak backrest to the rear legs to the unique arms of the #55 chair. It all creates an expressive, sculptural form. The curve in the backrest allows for comfort. The teak has attractive grain patterns throughout. The seats are made from woven paper cord which proved to be a worthy alternative to fabric. This set includes two more difficult to find #55 armchairs. This classic Danish design was one of the most popular chairs to come out of Denmark and for good reason. Although the design goes all the way back to 1951, they would make a great addition to any modern dining environment.

About the designer: "In 1944, Niels Otto Møller founded J.L. Møllers Møbelfabrik in Denmark, a company that has received many awards, including the Danish Furniture Prize in 1974 and 1981. “My father never compromised on anything,” says Jørgen Henrik Møller. “When he designed a chair, he would find the materials and then design the furniture. Each design took him five years to complete.” This work ethic is why the Møller collection is relatively small for a company that’s been around for more than 60 years, but that’s what makes Møller so special"(source)


The set includes six dining chairs (model #71), two arm chairs (model #55) and an extending dining table.

SET IS NOW SOLD
