Muuto - New Nordic a relatively young company of just over 5 years, is striving to expand Scandinavian design tradition with a new, creative perspective.

Inspired by the Finish word Muutos, meaning “new perspective.”

I feel with their constantly growing portfolio of beautiful design, they deserve some much earned credit.

With many new Muuto products coming to our showroom, I am excited to see what they have produced, having seen what we currently have in Mint. I’d love to get my hands on some of the new picks - great design can be affordable!

Muuto handpicks the youngest and brightest in Scandinavian design talent, giving them complete freedom to express their individuality by creating completely original, functional everyday objects. 

You can see in all Muuto products, that they indeed have “muutos” / new perspective.

Stay tuned for what’s to come from Muuto; In the meantime come take a look at what is currently in our showroom.


LOUISE CAMPBELL ON THE DESIGN ”A candlestick that is everything but streamlined. As the saying goes: the more elements you join together, the merrier the result. Can be constructed in infinite ways. The design is a blend of the formal and the informal. The crystal-inspired candleholders are made of the softest matt rubber; the garland-like arms are pressed in hardwearing steel and then coated. Assembly can be conducted with a sense of meticulous symmetry, or with complete chaos, as you wish. Using 4, 7, 14, 27, 77, 189… elements, according to desire.” Contains: 7 candleholders and 6 connectors

"STUDIO PENDANT" - Various Colours on Display at Mint!

THOMAS BERNSTRAND ON THE DESIGN ”Studio is a study in reducing the archetypical industry lamp to its essence. Thereby creating a lamp that works well in both private and commercial surroundings as a very functional lamp with a strong character.” Dimensions: Ø 39 cm, height 29 cm

"E27 SOCKET LAMP" - new colours arriving soon!

MATTIAS STÅHLBOM ON THE DESIGN ”E27 departs from the essence of a lamp - the socket – creating a simple yet strong object that celebrates the potential beauty in simplicity. The simplicity of the naked bulb is hard to compete with. It represents something that feels romantic and contemporary at the same time. ” Dimensions: bulb diameter 125 mm, cord length 4 m 

"PLUGGED PENDANT" - arriving soon!

BROBERG & RIDDERSTRÅLE ON THE DESIGN ”The Plugged pendant lamp plays with the elements most lighting armatures try to hide. It emphasizes how the lamp is “brought to life” thereby giving it character and difference. The space between the shade and the ceiling is highlighted by the pattern of the textile cord - and the placing of the plug on the side gives the lamp a dynamic appearance and brings life to an otherwise static typology. The concave diffuser adds to the freshness with the infinite sensation you get, when you look into the lamp.” Dimensions:Ø 430 mm, height 263 mm.

"UNDER THE BELL" - coming soon!

“Under The Bell is not just a lampshade. When hung over a table or in an open environment it creates its own space within the bigger space. That way, the lamp embraces and shelters the table and people beneath it – both physically and in a more abstract sense. The recycled plastic felt even absorbs sound and helps improve the acoustics of your room.” Dimensions: height 46 cm, Ø 82 cm

"MHY PENDANT" - coming soon in various colours!

NORWAY SAYS ON THE DESIGN ”Mhy has an elegant appearance and a strong personality. The playful shape of Mhy draws inspiration from illustrations and characters from our childhood’s literature. The neat size of Mhy allows the pendant to be mounted in clusters or rows over your kitchen table, dining table, in a hallway or somewhere else where you would like to add a design element with unique, but understated character.” Dimensions: Ø 20,3 cm, height 24,5 cm

"THE DOTS" - coming soon in oak black and yellow!

LARS TORNØE ON THE DESIGN ”This characterful little family of hooks is a friendly addition to any wall. The Dots are proud of their round edges and will treat your clothes with the greatest care. They will also let you arrange them on your wall in the pattern you like. Being a very social set of hooks, The Dots love to welcome other Dots to join them on the wall. The only thing The Dots demand from you is that you uncover them every now and then and admire their shape and material”  Dimensions: Large: Ø 170, Medium: Ø 130, Small: Ø 90 mm

"SURFACE EGG CUPS" - coming soon!

OLE JENSEN ON THE DESIGN ”A small hand-held and sculptural plateau with three small dents. One for the egg, one for the shells and one for salt - or whatever you might imagine! For breakfast - though maybe not everyday - for brunch and definitely for sunday mornings. To serve a boiled egg is almost a happening on its own. An eternal source of shared moments and discussion of whether it’s overcooked or not…”

I thought I might feature some inspiring photos featuring Jielde lamps, as we have just received our new shipment at Mint.  There are so many great colours and styles to choose from.

Jielde lamps last a lifetime. They have all been hand made in Lyon, France since 1950. If you are lucky it is possible to still find originals from the 50’s and 60’s. They are just timeless!

Baroque Chair by Acrila

Taking a chair from the 17th century and bringing it into the 21st.

Three Baroque chairs currently sit in the window of Mint and that’s not even counting the miniatures we have display on our polar bear bookshelf…yes, I did say a polar bear bookshelf.

Have one at your writing desk; focus on your work whilst listening to Bach, Vivaldi, and Handel.

These chairs, made in France, come in a variety of designs from the one of a kind company Acrila. Have a look at their impressive selections all ready to order from Mint.

Made of smart modern Acrylic with added colour, it forces the detail to stand out from everything else.

I love the way this deep blue pops against the black colour scheme.

The Baroque Chair in green featured with the Embassy Desk in high gloss white and the new Ibride Visconti Trays.

The great thing about the Baroque chair is that because it is inspired by traditional patterns and really can be used in any style of home, traditional, transitional and contemporary!

If you ever find your space empty, dull, and in need of a make-over, brighten it with some colour. (and light) Without having to even turn on a Jielde Lamp, they offer an impressive colour selection to brighten any room.

Jielde Lamps have been around since 1950, and you can still find the originals still in use. They are built to last, and are incredibly versatile in the sense that they can be used in any style of home. 

The brushed steel finish works great in any room from contemporary, to country, to industrial modern styles.

Pick your favourite colour, or come into Mint Interiors to have a look at one in 3d.

A beautiful use of colour in the kitchen.

The yellow Jielde wall sconce is a perfect accent for your retro theme appliances. 

Jielde Lamps can create such a different vibe with every colour or application. Take this shorter version in black for example:
