I wish I lived here: a Berlin apartment styled by New Tendency


Whenever I want a dose of smart, cool, Scandi-inspired interiors, I can always count on Fantastic Frank. This newly renovated home in Berlin is located in a building from the turn of the century, and although it may look like any other modern apartment, there are some surprisingly delightful details, such as the kitchenette made of old airplane storage. I can certainly say I have never seen an airplane kitchen before, but practically speaking it’s very clever, with small compartments all neatly lined up in a row.

The rooms of the apartment were styled by Sarah van Peteghem in collaboration with Berlin-based design studio New Tendency, who also designed the yellow, t-shaped ‘Meta’ side table shown. The table, made of powder-coated steel, has horizontal and vertical storage for books and magazines as well as a top that looks delicate and thin or substantial and full depending on the angle you’re looking at. The shelving in the last image is also by New Tendency. Called Shift, it consists of modular elements, which can be easily stacked vertically on top of each other and moved horizontally.
