Red Riding Hood...
My preference is for the time before 1950 and especially for objects that appear to have been used by many hands before they ended up here. The fact that an object is not perfect but has little flaking and wear, is in my eyes a beauty feature, which shows that it has been appreciated.
It can be very nostalgic to find something that evokes memories of a time lost. Maybe it's a special thing that you can remember seeing in your childhood or maybe you also want to create an exciting and personal home and style.
The old and unique gives a twist of depth, and it is often the small details that highlight a style that presents a mark on both yourself and your home.
Old adventures and a sense of something lurking, something dangerous, something beneath the surface - as in the story of Red Riding Hood and the big bad wolf. Sometimes this is the feeling I try to catch and pass.
I started andthebigbadwolf in autumn 2011. Since I was little, I have collected things with story and soul. I've always spent a lot of my time in the nature and felt the weight of the history in the landscape and I wanted to share this feeling with others. Through andthebigbadwolf this has become reality and I hope that this is reflected in the specially selected things that are in the store. Some things may become sucked into the past, but they will never be forgotten.
The shop contains old, beautifully worn and unique things. I love to imagine where their life began and how their journey has been, before they ended in the place where I picked them up. And how their onward journey and use will unfold ..
