Lisbet Friis

Long time collaborator and renowned Danish textile designer Lisbet Friis plays an important part in translating Fabula Living’s vision into the simple and striking Nordic style.  The award-wining designer has brought her extensive knowledge of patterns, colours and materials into the collaboration, and she shares the company’s attention to detail and passion for creating long lasting design.  Inspired by the ever changing Danish weather like the beauty of a thick greyish fog, she transforms nature’s colour scheme and her own state of mind into specific colours or patterns.  In the 2017 collection she has taken her deep appreciation of nature and created a unique palette of balmy and serene colours – from the pale blue and sandy colours on a Nordic beach to the earthy tones of bare fields. These feelings are effortlessly ingrained in the collection, which is created to bring natural comfort into the home in a time, when we all seem to be longing for peace and quiet. While each design is special in its own way, they are all a part of the same idea. The designer wanted to make a harmonic collection with a natural colour scheme complimenting different types of woods and styles in a home. The style is stripped back to basic, and the unique approach to colours, details and craftsmanship make each design stand out with subtle striking features like a dash of yellow and an extraordinary blend of linen and wool. A complicated technique which creates the stunning blue chequer pattern in the Lotus design showcases her skills and makes it the focal point of the new collection. Once again, her eye for noticing nature’s little details and her talent for translating feelings and ambience has resulted in new, fresh, contemporary and yet classic designs, something that is so unmistakably Fabula Living.
