My friend Åse's house

These photos are from the latest issue of Nytt Rom (#19). They're taken at my good friend Åse's home in Oslo. It was built in the 1960s and I love the good atmosphere and layout of the place.

The kitchen has recently been redone and it looks stunning.

One end of the L-shaped living room. The long modular shelf is designed by Johan Ørbeck Aase. It consists of shelving boards and vertical dividers only which makes it very flexible - no screws or tools necessary to assemble it.

The TV-lounge which also function as the kid's play room. What kid wouldn't love to have this Eero Aarnio chair?

And talking about kids: Åse and her family throw the best birthday parties. (And no, this particular photo is not in the magazine... )

can you please ask your friend Åse where she bought her purple lamp in the kitchen? anyone? where is it from? I've seen it in multiple colours, but I can't seem to find out where to get one.
