With a touch of Danish stye, the old-school clipboard gets a handsome (and gift-worthy!) upgrade. In black-stain or smoked-oak wood finish, it has a newly sleek look in this version from Copenhagen's Ferm Living. Use it to organize a welter of paperwork on the desk, leave a note in the hallway, hold a recipe in the kitchen or even as a dining room accessory to present the dinner menu to guests.

Graphic designer Trine Andersen got inspired one day when she was looking for wallpaper and the choices were dull and too expensive. Figuring other people probably felt the same way, she decided to create it herself. And Danish design company Ferm Living was the result, growing to include home accessories, linens, lighting and furniture for both grown-ups and little ones. “Our biggest ambition and desire is to inspire people to create the kind of space that makes them feel comfortable at home,” Trine says. A home is much more than just beautiful things. We believe it’s a place intimately tied to our emotions, values, and way of thinking.”
With a Nordic style that references the design heritage of the ’50s and ’60s, Ferm Living also offers bolder statement pieces—items that are more colorful and rich. “When you mix these styles, the bolder pieces give energy to the calmer ones,” Trine says. “I love to mix it up. It’s not about being just clean and Scandinavian. We love to add some sparkle!”
