WHAT DID YOU HAVE FOR BREAKFAST?

R: I had cereal with my children before leaving for work.

H: I grabbed something on my way out the door before biking to work with my dog.

ARE YOU GOOD COOKS?

R: I am actually quite a good cook! I cook a lot for my family and guests stopping by.

H: I enjoy watching cooking shows, but I am a terrible cook. I can make some mean salads, but that is about it.

DO YOU DANCE AT HOME?

R: We dance if there is a party. And especially if they are playing pop music!

H: Yes, some modern pop music.

WHAT IS A GOOD TRACK/ALBUM/PLAYLIST TO HANG OUT?

R: We have a colleague here at Baum und Pferdgarten who somehow always manages to create the perfect playlists to fit a situation!

H: We are an extremely close team and we love to hang out across departments, and when we do; whether it is Friday drinks, coffee or just hanging, she manages to capture the mood.

ARE THERE ANY SPACES/HOMES THAT HAVE MADE AN IMPACT ON YOU?          

R: We travel to Salone del Mobile every year, which is a giant design fair in Milano. It is a very important trip for us.

H: It is where we can gather inspiration and just fill up. There are both exhibitions and amazing private homes that are made to be a showroom.

WHAT MAKES A HAPPY HOME?

R: Family.

H: Family. Family and friends make the home. No matter how empty it might otherwise be.

WHATS YOUR FAVORITE THING AT HOME?

R: I have some different designs from the designer Cathrine Raben Davidsen, both paintings and a beautiful lamp I really love.

H: I have a green version of the Snoopy lamp from Flos, which I adore. It is fun but still classic, and no matter where I put it, it lights up the place. Both literally and figuratively!

WHAT SHOULD A SOFA DO FOR YOU?

R&H: It should be the perfect surrounding for our families. Something that embraces life and the spilling that goes along with it. A sofa should – like the rest of your home – be a place for embracing calmness after a long day.

And if you ask us, a sofa should also be either leopard or floral printed. Just because it is comfortable, it does not mean it has to be boring.
