We were captivated at first glance by the gorgeous products on the be&liv website. Established in Helsinki in 2012 the company's objective was to bring the poetry back to everyday life with beautifully designed objects.
The organic signature style at be&liv is created by using the most precise manufacturing techniques and modern, high quality materials. Stainless steel and sheets of brass are plied, etched, and plated in copper, black, white or even 24k gold to create stunning and unusual objects that are not only beautiful but useful too.
The Lily cake stand adds elegance to any party. Fill it with treats and use it as a centrepiece. Better still it's perfect for displaying cupcakes in the kitchen, or (as we much prefer) jewellery in the bedroom.
Designed by Ilkka Suppanen, the beautiful One Flower Vase is made from laser-cut steel and is designed to complement the beauty of a single flower. Suppanen says, "sometimes a single flower says so much more than a big bouquet."
The Halo is a three-dimensional shelf just made for displaying small items. Designer Janne Uusi-Autti:“Driving force was to create an item with unique delicate structure and yet with minimal waste. Parts are packed inside one another and assembled only with light bending.”
Each item is beautifully flat-packed, arriving as several parts in order to be environmentally friendly as flat packages take less room to store and transport. We're told the items are extremely easy to assemble yourself at home.
All be&liv products are available from their website, beandliv.com and can be shipped to anywhere in the UK.
