FIKA LIFESTYLE IS ALL ABOUT
Simple + Considered Living
Impeccable Quality + Style
Honest Practices + Sustainability
A lifelong obsession with interiors and styling, combined with the lure of a simpler, healthier and more considered way of living, has led to the creation of FIKA lifestyle.
I believe that happiness lies within the smallest moments. Moments we often take for granted as we rush through our busy lives. The Swedish concept of ‘FIKA’ is simply about slowing down to appreciate those moments. It is a ‘coffee break’ – a time to share with friends and family over a cup of coffee and something sweet. But its meaning runs far deeper than this. It is about getting back in touch with yourself and the people around you. Pausing from the chaos of life to nourish your body and soul.
It is an attitude that can be carried through every aspect of our lives. The events of this year (2020) and the prolonged time spent in our homes has highlighted to me just how important this is.
My goal is to bring a bit of FIKA into your home.
Our homes should be a thoughtful and genuine reflection of who we are – an extension of our personalities. They should feel calm, warm and welcoming. A space to relax when we’re alone and a beautiful setting in which to enjoy the company of others. The items we choose to place in our homes should add a touch of style and beauty. They should also bring us enjoyment, serve a true purpose or contribute to our wellbeing. It is this ethos that lies behind FIKA lifestyle.
The products you will find in the pages of our online store have been handpicked from around the world, each chosen for their unique quality and style. Fika Lifestlye brings you a lovingly curated collection of simple homeware + lifestyle products to add style and beauty to your home and to nourish your soul.
"My goal is to bring a bit of Fika into your home"
With a focus on honest practices and sustainability, we only work with brands who adhere to the same values, ensuring the products you buy from us are ethically produced with minimal environmental impact. We use recycled and/or recyclable products for our packaging wherever possible and will always try to re-use the packaging in which products arrive to us. This comes with challenges and we do not claim to be 100% eco-friendly at this time, but our aim is to continue to learn and find ways in which to lower our impact on the environment, whilst still maintaining high standards of quality in our products with robust and effective packaging.
Hugely influenced by my time spent travelling and living abroad, you will find a fusion of styles from Australia, Scandinavia, India, New England…to name a few! Our products are a healthy mix of contemporary and traditional and we also design and build our own unique, one off pieces.
INTERIOR STYLING & HOME STAGING
To bring a bit of added FIKA into your home, we also offer interior styling and home staging services. Perfect for those who have just moved house and would like to inject some FIKA style into their interior design, or for those wishing to stage their homes for sale, to showcase the potential of the home to prospective buyers.
EVENT STYLING & FURNITURE RENTALS
To hire some style, we have a sister wedding & event styling and furniture rental company, The W Studio. So if you are getting married or hosting an event (big or small) and would like it furnished and/or styled to reflect your personality and unique style, get in touch to find out how we can help, or head to www.thewstudio.co.uk
BESPOKE FITTED & FREE STANDING FURNITURE
With our very own in house carpenter with over 20 years experience, we are able to design and create stunning and unique fitted and free standing furniture to suit your requirements. We specialise in solving those problem spaces that cry out to be used for storage, but no ‘off the shelf’ piece will fit! Our wardrobes and larders can also come complete with internal lighting, and if you love a big TV but hate having it on show when it’s turned off – why not hide it away in a bespoke unit with a mechanical TV lift?
We love a challenge so if you have something in mind that you haven’t seen anywhere else, we’d love to create it for you.
I hope you love what you find but if you need any more information about our products or services, or help choosing (I struggle not to take it all home!), please do drop us an email. I’m always happy to take a FIKA moment to answer your questions!
