When first introduced to ONE NORDIC FURNITURE COMPANY, it was the fabric on their KOTI modular sofa that initially caught my eye. The bold textural weave - a knitted 3D effect made entirely from natural components - creates what appears to be an incredibly tactile surface. The overall shape of the sofa, which is made using a combination of feathers and horsehair (which in my opinion is far more superior not be mention robust than foam) is clean and plump.  And then there's the sombre blackish grey, or is it greyish black?  Either way, it's perfect.

But it's not just the Koti sofa that has a story to tell.  One Nordic has embraced the essence of Nordic design - uncluttered functionality in everyday objects - to offer a compact range which incorporates pleasing shapes and a pared down colour palette.  There's no denying that some of their pieces borrow heavily from Aalto, and personally I'd much rather the real deal.  But like most of Artek's furniture, all of One Nordic's designs are sold unassembled.  We're talking flat pack - and that includes the Koti sofa.  Who'd have thought?
