This beautiful tray is designed and made especially by Maria Dahlgren for our sponsor Huset, a great store for Scandinavian design, from clothing to tableware, kids stuff, and more.

The colorful, graphic contemporary tray is hand crafted from the highest quality Scandinavian birch from sustainable forests, and is produced by a family-run company situated on a small island off the southern Swedish mainland. The tray, which measures 12 3/4″ x 6″, is perfect for serving snacks, cheese, hors d’oeuvres, or how about breakfast in bed? It is also lovely to add a touch of color to any kitchen.

We also like the statement on the back of the tray: ”In Scandinavia , we have developed a habit of filling our homes with the same pure beauty that pervades the landscape around us. This love of natural materials and lines has always influenced Scandinavian design and filled it with a unique spirit that brings joy to everyday things, and makes loveable homes out of ordinary houses”.

Holly Hallberg, Founder and Manager of Huset, tells us more: “The collaboration between Maria and I started over two years ago. I had thought it would be fun to have her design some pieces for us specifically. She surprised me with the Huset tray last summer, and I think the final result is quite nice. And most of all, we love what she wrote about our store and the lovely line about me, it was really special.”

The collaboration between Huset and Maria Dahlgren has only begun. We can expect to see more beautiful products designed exclusively for the store.
