Umeå Pride & Charity Dinner 2010

Pride Umeå has come to an end, for me. At writing moment I’m sitting on the train home. My flight to Stockholm went well *I survived once again* Anyhow, The showing of Pride Collection and Charity Dinner went well. All my tray tables got sold! We even did better than we did in Stockholm, which is kind of weird but fun! So more money to RFSL this time.

I’ve met so many new, fun and interesting people during my visit in Umeå. So thank you Simon, Jörgen, Robin, Thim, Kerstin, Anna T, Sarah and everybody else I know …

Today the Pride Collection gang is going out to party, Personally I’m just looking forward to come home and snuggle up with my family, in front of the TV, and watch Mr Federlay shake his ass on Dansfeber.

I’m tired and beat. Maybe I should take the day off on monday …

Stockholm Furniture Fair 2010 [report]

On 14, Feb 2010 | 8 Comments | In Design Blog, Furniture, My Designs | By :Peter

Stockholm Furniture Fair 2010 was a great success. It’s hard to sum up the whole amazing week in short. It was so jam packed with exciting meetings, introductions and releases … But I can for sure say that the most fun of it all are all the new and interesting co-operations with aware and openminded producers. That believe in me and my far out ideas! So keep your eyes open soon you’ll see a number of my collections on the market. First out is CROP Carpets Collection for A-Carpet. After that Pride Collection for Design M. And more to come …

Things I will remember for a long time are; The CROP Carpet and green design chat with Maud OlofssonAndrea Ruggieros kind words. The walk about with deputy primeminister, Olle Melkerhed Not-loosing his camera. The release party of Design M’s showroom. And of course all the wonderful visitors and collegues.

Thank you all for your wonderfull support! See you next year.

The popular Crop Carpet stand Deputy primeminister Maud Olofsson stopped by and discussed green design. She loved the rug! The Design Team of Design M (Seller Stand) The wallpaper 'Coathangers' The Pride Romance pattern in the background Table designed by PM in High pressure laminate (hpl) La Table with the Pride Romance pattern The designer in front of his grand mouse; 'Ear Candy'

By the way …
Peter Mäkelä were also the graphic stylist of the ‘Seller – Learn & Earn Stand’ (in the entrance hall), together with Ola Rune (CKR), the artistic consultant.
