Hello furniture aficionados,
Summer is blazing away - the city is eerily quiet, except the Rhein, which is bursting with colourful swimbags and their owners (including me). Our shop is very close to the water (just up from Oetlingerstrasse buvette), so why not float all the way down and drop by? Just make sure you check our special summer hours >
Many of your are off in far-flung places on holiday (lucky you!), but we've been around most of the summer, and despite the lethargy-inducing heat, have been busy bees, connecting with old and new old friends around Basel.
One of these is Simone Aïda Baur, a talented Swiss interior designer, based in Basel & Zurich. We met her back in the early days of ecochair.ch at the Start-Up Academy, and this month we're excited to feature some of her insightful tips about moving home, on our blog >
We also had the pleasure of meeting Ken Bourson, who has designed very cool flower vases out of old wine barrels. We got chatting with him at a local flea market, and thought his upcycled product was really aligned with our ecochair.ch mission, so we've now got it in our webshop >
I've been planning a new look for the shop interior, and have been playing with some ideas for the website. But, it's too hot for me so I'm going to pour myself another G&T and wait for the cooler weather before I get to work ;)
Enjoy your summer, folks.
Kate and the ecochair.ch team
