New Fall Arrivals from Iittala!

Iittala has released their new fall designs, and they are fresh off the boat here at Fjorn! Iittala brings organic shapes and natural inspirations with this autumn collection.

Iittala Essence glassware: the very best wine service with the fewest pieces.

Up first are two new additions to the Essence line of glassware -- the Iittala Essence decanter in pale pink and moss green. The Iittala Essence decanter is part of a uncomplicated and contemporary glassware collection designed by Alfredo Häberli for Iittala. The idea behind the Essence line was to create a set that would allow for drinking a full range of fine wines with as few glasses as possible. Highly functional, each Iittala Essence glass has the same size base and stem, creating a beautifully harmonized aesthetic. The new arrivals bring a splash of color to the entire set.

Ultima Thule collection.

 Also expanding a beautiful set, the Ultima Thule range as designed by Tapio Wirkkala (watch for a designer profile on the blog next week!) receives new pieces, including a gorgeous plate that artfully showcases the elegant “melting ice” technique that the entire collection celebrates. There are other new forms, including a set of Cordial Glasses that are just perfect for postprandial digestifs after a satisfying autumn meal, and a new glass color: Rain.


 The popular Finnish Moomin characters are featured on a series of bright coffee mugs, perfect as a stocking stuffer or to brighten up coffee breaks during the shorter days ahead.

Iittala Valkea Tealight Candleholder

 Brightening up the shortening evenings is made easier with candles! Iittala Valkea Tealight Candleholders come in six refined colors, perfect to add a sophisticated, warm accent of light to any room (or all of your rooms!)

The lovely organic forms of the Nappula Candleholder series.

 The Nappula candleholder series was born when designer Matti Klenell visited the Nuutajärvi glass museum and fell in love with an unusually shaped table. Sturdy and sympathetic, Nappula represents a strong Nordic design language -- soft forms conform to the gentle flame of the candle, while the solid base and delicate stem create contrast between firm and subtle. Icons in the making, this expanded series deserves a place in your home!

 And, of course, because we here at Fjorn have a soft spot for these birds, there are new additions to the Iittala Birds by Toikka line: the Reed Warbler and the Snow Finch.
