Designing your first home is a pleasure to be remembered. It’s your first chance to really put your stamp on a space.

You probably know by now, but at OPUMO you’ll find a wealth of great design brands waiting to fill up your new home, but for today at least, we’re focussing on the best new furniture arrivals from Kristina Dam that are destined to enhance a new home.
Kristina Dam Studio was founded by architect Kristina Dam in 2012. The Danish design studio is known for its sculptural minimalism. By combining artistic, experimental shapes with superior craftsmanship and materials, Kristina Dam has produced an aesthetic that works in almost any interior, injecting life through its playful shapes and abstract concepts. You can read her entire story, from design inspirations and career aspirations, in our exclusive interview with Kristina on the OPUMO Magazine.

This is an all-time bestseller for a reason. Inspired by the stark geometrical shapes of the Bauhaus movement, this drinks trolley is extremely useful, providing a dynamic, stylish storage solution. Whether you’re looking for a drinks tray or a magazine holder, this trolley will fulfil the job while looking the part.
Another Bauhaus descendant, this painted steel candle holder is a great way to add a stylistic touch to a room. Small details go a long way, and something subtle and geometric like this candlestick is the perfect detail. Not only does it look great when not in use, but reaches a new level when the candle is lit, casting intriguing shadows.
When it comes to must-have furniture for new homeowners you ought to be looking for pieces that are multi-functional; pieces of furniture that can be used in any room and pieces that will be around for years, despite how many times you want to change the overall aesthetic. The Kristina Dam Mirror Table is one such item. You can use the small and sculpted mirror table as a unique design showpiece or as a regular coffee table. Plus, thanks to its mirrored sides and contrasting marble top, even when its not in use it will operate as a centrepiece of the room.
Opened in 1929, the Barcelona Pavilion is one of the most recognisable buildings in the world. The celebrated building was the German Pavilion for the 1929 International Exposition in Barcelona and is celebrated for its simple form and its extravagant materials; marble, red onyx and travertine. Unfortunately, we can’t all own the Barcelona chair, which was also made especially for the pavilion, so grab Kristina Dam’s monochrome blueprint of the building itself.
