Fun Spring Finds: Going Dutch in Eclectic Style
Clocks are forward, snow is a distant memory and warmer days are making an appearance: spring has finally sprung.
And in celebration of the newfound energy that spring brings us, we’re welcoming the arrival of Dutch brand, Pols Potten to the Pad Lifestyle spring/summer collection.
Pols Potten is Dutch design that’s reached an eclectic epiphany. Their quirky interior and home accessories are rooted in traditional Dutch design interior, but emphasise unconventionality with an eclecticism that speaks for itself. This collection brings Pantone Colour of the Year, coral, into focus on select products, with everything from candle stands to tulip coloured rugs to brighten up your home.
We’re putting the spotlight on our top spring picks from the Pols Potten collection:
This banded tulip, gold and burgundy carpet is suggestive of the world-famous tulip fields that The Netherlands is synonymous with. Each carpet is hand-woven from wool and hemp by individual artists so you’ll truly be getting one of a kind.
There’s nothing quite like a looming candle stand to get the conversation flowing over dinner...and this one will certainly have all eyes turned on it. Featuring the unexpected combination of a deer head, an armadillo and a wine goblet, it’s fair to say that tongues will be trying to work out if there’s a connection between those.
Mirror mirror, on the wall, who’s the fairest of them all? Go bold with this gold prickle mirror, a glamourous feature for any interior. Reminiscent of a shining sun, it’ll be a surefire way to perk up your mood when you do a quick face ‘onceover’ as you leave the house.
Sitting on a pint of lager isn’t something we’d usually advise...except in this case. This lager ceramic stool has an amber coloured base and a creamy white ‘head’, to remind the world that Dutch beer is top of the drink chain.
Handmade, it’s the perfect addition as an extra pull-up chair, or even to use as a side table with a real pint sitting on it!
While the grey is disappearing outside, this beautiful two-seater sofa is bringing it inside. Soothing on the eye, it’s lush velvet grey makes a great base shade for a colourful room.The sleek Dutch design is prominent here, oozing sophisticated simplicity and ‘sink into’ comfort.
Have your guests seeing stars as they enter your house...literally. This ceramic stars lamp casts beautiful starry patterns on the wall, for an unexpected and unusual effect. Made from unglazed bisque porcelain, it’s an ideal addition to any living space.
We know that fruit is one of the best foods for keeping us healthy, but with this fruit plate, it can put a smile on your face too. The glazed silver and gold apple and banana ornaments make the perfect home for your fruit to live, or you can simply leave the plate as purely decorative.
Although these are our top picks, we’re over the moon about the whole eclectic Pols Potten collection.
