A fusion between near and far, local and global.
mydeco.com in conversation with DAY Birger and Mikkelsen Home.
What's the ethos behind your brand?
As founder, Keld Mikkelsen describes it, “DAY BIRGER ET MIKKELSEN is a fusion between near and far. Local and global. The sophistication of a jet setter mixed with the free spirit of a modern gypsy.” I think these words just sum it up perfectly!
Who is your favourite designer and why?
My favourite designer is DAY HOME designer Marianne Brandi. She is so energetic, inspiring and makes the most amazing products. I love to hear stories about her travels throughout the world. She finds her inspiration in the most unexpected places and combines design and materials from different origins in totally new ways.
Whose home would you most like to look inside?
I would like to see the home from Marianne and Keld. I have only seen a few pictures in magazines. I know that Marianne is changing the look every season, by adding new colours and styles to all-time favourites. I like the idea that your home is changing according to the seasons like fashion does, so it never gets boring.
What do you like most about mydeco and which product from the site would you most like to have in your home?
Mydeco is very forward thinking. It brings new trends, classics and exciting products under one umbrella. Simplicity is the key and a real pleasure for shoppers! My favourite is the Victorian Glass Dome Lamp. The vintage Dome looks stunning and great idea to give the vintage dome a new purpose as a lamp.
