Fanø House


Fanø House is a beautiful sea-side getaway designed by celebrated Danish architect and designer Knud Holscher. Now in his late eighties, Holscher studied and then worked under Arne Jacobson. He set up his synonymous practice in 1995 which continues today.

Fanø House is situated on an island off the southwest coast of Denmark. It is a highly-glazed, single story building nestled among the sand-dunes. The curved pitched roof appears to float, sweeping down from slim clerestory windows above the central blackened wooden wall to meet glazed walls on three sides of the expansive living room. On the far side of the high central wall are the bedrooms and bathrooms

The interiors at Fano House are by London based Swedish designer Staffan Tollgard and his team at Tollgard Design Group.

They are beautifully simple, comfortable and elegant - sitting so well against the architecture and the landscape beyond.

Natural materials are used throughout the project - dark grey stone floors, wood paneling and a stone pillar fireplace.

And we were thrilled to see our blankets and cushions dotted through the house, providing points of colour and pattern. The living room has a number of 405 Line and Quail’s Egg cushions, a Pumpernickel blanket and additional cushions made up in our Caldbeck and Petrol Green ground fabric. Northerly, Canasta, Sourdough and Signal blankets are used in the bedrooms, paired with cushions in our Aerial fabrics.

It feels like a real feather in our cap, to have been included in such a lovely project.
