It is nice to share where we collect our ideas. Of course travels and everyday life is a source of inspiration. As well as Pinterest and Instagram. We see new trends being born and when it feels right for the Hartendief collection we’ll take some of it on board. But don’t get me wrong. We don’t dance around the trends. We’d much rather be a part of creating them. In every item we create our main goal is to feed the imagination of the magical people we do it for, our customers and their children.
This bear cuteness helps when coming up with new ideas for wall stickers and lamps. Our Bear sticker and Little bear sticker were designed give the illusion that they turn the light on or off for you. Plus we use quite a few bear characters in our lamps. Bears will always be a huge part of kids life wether in their outfits, illustrations or room decor. Must be because they are so soft and so cuddly.
Another favourite of kids we cannot ignore is the native tribal vibe. Every little kid loves to play cowboy and Indian and recognises the tools and signs that come with it. It's the sense of freedom and outdoor adventure that appeals. For us this theme belonged in a setting full of mountains and a large fishing lake.
The native decorations trend has been a huge inspiration for our Star Fishers lamp and the wall sticker. We think the arrows and feathers are really cute for little boys rooms and we have send our animal friends on a little adventure fishing on a mountain lake. But what are they fishing for? Switch on the light in the dark and look closely... they are fishing for the stars!
Recently we have photographed the new collection that we'll launch this summer. Can't wait to share our inspirations for that collection. Follow us on Instagram where we'll soon start sharing some sneak previews.
