Ferm Living founder's fun interiors
Bold patterns and colours infuse the stylish retro-meets-modern family home of Ferm Living founder Trine Andersen
August’s bed is a design familiar to generations of Danish children. Originally created by Danish architect Viggo Einfeldt in the Forties, the classic piece handily converts from a crib to a toddler bed. “I like the details and the quality of the craftsmanship,” says Trine. August’s little table is inherited from Trine’s nephew, brightened up with a lick of mint-green paint. On the top is a collection of toys: a soldier from a flea market, a leather hippo and a Rasmus Klump – a popular Danish cartoon character who sports red spotted dungarees. Tucked under the table is a well-loved and slightly shabby yellow chair, a find from a second-hand shop.
The family has certainly put their stamp on the place. So are there any more changes afoot? “I’d like to develop our outside spaces,” says Trine. “We have two big terraces and it would be nice to plant some flowers for summer.” Her other plans are of a more practical variety. “With the office just across the hall, it can be tempting to pop over in the evening and do a bit more work,” she says. “We need to learn to set the alarm, lock the door and not go back until the next morning.” After all, it’s only fitting they should be enjoying some ferm living of their own.
