Finding it hard to unwind after a busy day? Then you’ll be interested to hear that the people behind Flensted Mobiles believe the humble nursery mobile has the same relaxing effect as watching a sunset or listening to birds outside your window. They think mobiles have a place in any room of your house and, judging by this image from their Facebook page, I think I’m inclined to agree!
Mobiles are a traditional craft in Denmark so it was fitting to discover that Flensted mobiles are handcrafted by home workers on a little Danish Island called Funen. The owners like to think their relaxed approach – along with the beautiful ambience of Funen – follows the mobiles around the world to their new home.
We’re particularly fond of the monochrome whales and penguins here at Babyology today but if you prefer the more traditional and colourful mobiles, there is a vaster-than-vast range to choose from.
Chief designer Ole Flensted has perfected the mobiles to a point where they naturally pick up the lightest sway of breeze in a room. He often works with artists to come up with striking designs and this harlequin shows just how unique a Flensted mobile can be.
They arrive at your door ready to hang and can be bought locally from Fishpond. The Penguin Parade and Happy Whales mobiles are $53 and the Harlequin is $62. Visit Flensted to see the entire mobile range.
We’ve previously covered the more traditional mobile designs from Flensted so take a look. Meanwhile, I feel like I’ve unwound a little just thinking about them.
