I live in a house that has high ceilings, and because I tend to spend most of my time living below the 5’6″ mark, things can tend to look a little empty up high. Light fixtures help, sure, but I’d like to start adding some pretty mobiles to my home, too. These are some of my favorites.
Futura, Flowing Rhythm & Black Rhythm Mobiles / Ole & Aase Flensted
I’ve been wanting a Flensted mobile for a long time now (I love lines and dots!). The original, Futura, was designed in 1970 and is still handmade on the island of Funen in Denmark. You can get one from Design Public.
Themis Mobiles / Clara von Zweigbergk
SO fun. I love geometric shapes (and anything with facets), and these are my favorite palettes when it comes to bright colors. These Themis mobiles were created by Swedish graphic designer and illustrator Clara von Zweigbergk, and they are available from Poketo. (Be sure to watch the animated Themis video on Clara’s website!)
Flock Mobile / Bookhou
The maple veneer Flock mobile from Bookhou is really well suited for hanging over a crib or in a child’s room. I like that it evokes flying birds without being too literal or cutesy.
Himmeli Mobiles / AMradio
Aren’t these amazing?! Melissa at AMradio makes her intricate Himmeli mobiles out of plastic stirrer-straws (!) and string, and I can’t even imagine how much work must go into each piece. I love that they almost look like drawings that change from every angle.
YAY for mobiles! And thanks for having me over, Jen.
