5 swoon worthy things: Goods We Love: Camilla and Ricky

Goods We Love: Camilla and Ricky

By Natalie Goel

Supermodel Camilla Vest and advertising creative Ricky Nordson are the pair we have to thank for the inspiring Danish furniture and accessories found at some of our favorite stores. Having been friends for awhile, and both nurturing a love for Danish modern design, they decided to start their import company about a year ago. Their business, Goods We Love, couldn’t be more aptly named. Fine porcelain vases, copper bowls, the OGK Safari Daybed (an EyeSwoon favorite) and a handful of classic chairs are among their carefully-selected offerings. And uniting each and every piece is the philosophy, “good design should be as relevant today as it was 50 years ago and will be tomorrow.” Hear, hear! Below, the duo lets us in on their approach to design and shares five items that meet their swoony standards.
