Cooee Design

Just purchased the origami ornaments pictured above. Was intending to use it just for Christmas but the colorations make it applicable for any occasion.  We’re eyeing the stained oak birds for our next purchase.  They are from the Swedish brand, Cooee Design, established by Catrine Åberg in 2005.  They are known for their beautiful minimalistic vases and trays created in various sizes primarily in earthy tones.  The ‘ball vase’ was the first product in their ceramic series.  It was met with great success and assortments based on this item was developed with new colors and shapes.  The name Cooee means ”Hi, Hello” on the Aboriginal language. 

More of their products can be seen on their website,  Facebook and Instagram.
