édition PAUMES is a small and dynamic family run firm of Japanese publishers, that work closely with artists and designers in Europe to produce beautiful interior design books. With a poetic and original approach, édition PAUMES explores the environments of those who stimulate the creative industries, and in doing has produced an impressive set of style bibles that overflow with inspiration.
Luckily for all of us in Scandinavia, after a debut tour in Paris, édition PAUMES went on to discover Stockholm, then London and most recently Copenhagen. Even better news is that the publishers promise that the creative link, which they’ve forged between Tokyo and Europe, is only just beginning.
Distribution is still relatively limited but the publishers suggest that ordering books by email via their website is possible. Alternatively, if you happen to find yourself in Scandinavia, the édition PAUMES covering Scandinavian cities are available at Design Torget stores. Not that the pictures here can do justice to the beauty of these books, but take a look below at images from various editions covering Scandinavian interiors:
What does a studio represent to an artist? Everything! An artist's relationship to his or hers studio is so very special - it's their creative comfort zone, a place to hide away from the world, to get lost in thoughts and let their creative imagination run wide. In Artist's Studios Stockholm édition PAUMES take a look at Stockholm finest studios. Large, small, minimal, colorful, neat, tidy and bursting to the brim. Anything goes. The only similarity to be seen is the image that these studios give of the artist's inspirations, aspirations and creativity.
Kid’s Bedrooms in Stockholm
Primary colors, geometry, traditional style, rational and well-organized spaces: these are the main characteristics of a child’s bedroom in Sweden. With a distinct note common to all homes: a harmonious yet dynamic link between tradition and modernity.
Design is Sweden's daily way of life. Vibrating fabrics, dancing colors, pure geometry, vintage crockery; all are in harmony. The kitchen, the house’s heart, is like a refuge where true well-being is accomplished. A thorough blend of old family traditions and the modern world.
Stockholm is renowned for the purity and rigor of its design. However, the polished image this conjures up is slowing fading away. Innovative and creative Swedes, full of the color of life, prefer to explore flea markets or customize objects in their home, rather than hit the shops on a Saturday. ‘Recycling’ and ‘second-hand’ are the words that define this generation. Charm and poetry replace the geometric lines of modern design.
Stockholm’s Love Apartments
Young creative couples in Stockholm are busy building cosy nests of love. In the north, where the summer is short and, during the winter, natural light is rare, creativity is called upon to help make homes glow. Creative, young designers with lots of advice and tips for turning homes into creative love nests: DIY, customizing vintage pieces, searching for that special treasure at a flea market, at your parents or even at your grandparents home in the country. Full of imagination and ideas, this book invites you on a journey through the lives of young couples living in the Swedish capital.
