Nothing’s more cosy than sleeping in new fresh bedding. So we were very trilled to see the new equestrian inspired collection by Swedish designer Sofia Öberg: EquiHomeSweden.
EquihomeSweden is a swedish home interior brand that designs and develops high-quality home textiles, inspired by the equestrian sport. The company was founded back in 2015 by Sofia Öberg. The equestrian sport has always been a big part of her life together with her interest of home interiors and textiles. As since a few years the equestrian industry has transformed a lot and focusses more on fashion. Sofie thought this change is something that she really welcomed and her new collection was a step in this market transformation, to combine the equestrian industry with the interior design.
Fine equestrian textiles like saddle pads and blankets combined with the typical Scandinavian interior style inspired her to create this new bedding collection. The colors and materials are carefully picked and all the products are made from premium quality cotton. With the unique corner design the bedspreads cover the bed nicely, so say bye bye to fabric all over the floor.
“I have really put my heart and soul in this collection and there is a reason why it took me two years to develop it. For me quality is important, that is why the fabric is made from only the best cotton. My earlier career as a quality engineer have really helped me in my search for finding the best materials available. The supplier is carefully picked and I have a close relation with the workforce that I also frequently visit” said Sofie.
EquiHomeSweden recently launched a webshop and founder Sofie is really excited about extending the brand in the future.
When you buy a bedspread or a bedspread set, a nice navy bag is included where you can store things or why not use it to pack things in for the upcoming competition?

I’m very much into designer furniture, although it sometimes misses a little coziness. While I was on the hunt for the perfect pouf, my designer furniture wishlist became even more longer than it already was. The perfect equestrian inspired pouf is off course designed by my alltime favorite brand “Hermès“. The website describes the Ottoman pouf as “les nécessaires d’Hermès“. And indeed, this musthave recalls the shape of a saddle, it offers small occasional seating and practical occasional storage. This piece is crafted in the style of fine leather goods and requires intricate craftsmanship. Available in different fabrics.What is your favorite? The ones with the horse print or the leather ones?Price of the Hermès Ottoman +- 10.000€. On to some alternatives that don’t break the bank. The “equestrian saddle Ottoman” (under- right) is a golden oldie that you often see in equestrian advertising and commercials. The pouf is informed by a traditional riding saddle, transformed into a luxurious retreat. Amply padded and swathed in panels of hand-finished leather, it features quilted stitching and piped trim. It retails at +-600€ and is available at www.restorationhardware.com.
The left pouf (above) is a high quality luxury pouf Ottoman in subtle pattern and layered texture that will add chic sophistication to any living space. Available at www.scenariohome.com for 720$. I was inspired to start writing this article by these 2 pictures on pinterest. Unfortunately I don’t know the name of the brands. If you do, let me know!
