PIP Studio

October 1, 2008

Pip, pip, hurray! I briefly mentioned PIP Studio on Monday when I shared a fun folksy notebook I picked up from the local stationery shop. I’m so glad that I took the time to click around on the PIP website because I found a bunch of beautiful products — PIP Studio is more than paper goods that is for sure! Bold saturated patterned wallpaper in feminine florals (sold by Eijffinger), school supplies, bedding, porcelain, handbags, etc. YUM!

The lady behind PIP is Dutch product designer Catharina who has had the nickname PIP since childhood and who obviously loves red, blue, lace, and fun decorative interiors! If you live in Germany you can go to eBay.de and find tons of lovely PIP Studio things for your home (click here to see). I’m not sure where they are sold in America or elsewhere, but if you write to Catharina or sign up for her newsletter I’m sure you can find out. I’m sure it’s only a matter of time before Anthropologie picks up some PIP things…

These rooms are so playful and bright. Who wouldn’t be happy surrounded by all this pattern and color — this is definitely anti-depressive living!

    such funny timing on this post! I just bought my daughter a PIP studio backpack here in The Hague. I’d never heard of them before but was immediately drawn to their fun and fanciful designs. Thanks for the link.

    Wonderfully colourful but difficult for most master bedrooms I think although I adore the cups and saucers. I get around the pretty girly type thing with quilts and things by using them as tablecloths on the patio and in the garden for afternoon teas. Those above would work for that too.

    Hi I just checked the studio out and it was wonderfully inspiring, I adore the porcelain. At the bottom of the ebay page there were some shops and online shops that sell her stuff …one is here….


    although it is in German or some other language ….and I am not sure if that money sign was a pound or something else? Am so sheltered here in Australia…not fair!!!

    Love the Pip! I need a calendar by Pip, but don’t see any. If you know of a place to find one – please let me know!

    What a happy designer! I love the detailed artwork in every piece — you are totally right; it is inspired and anti-depressive living. Fun!

    This is so pretty! I am loving the picture of the living room… the blues are so soothing and are complemented beautifully with the pink accents; I want the throw pillows on the couch, they are awesome!

    Hey, Holly!
    Thanks for the pip-tip! I’ll have to check them out.
    These look like the perfect fit for my new shop on the Cape.
    Sugar Snap ships in a couple of weeks, yay!
    Thanks again for that bit you did about it a few months ago.

    Dear Petra,

    Here a small message from PIP; I am truely honhoured by your kind criticts. Anthropologie is my favourit store in NY and it would be superduper if they choose my products. Also the comments on your blog are so positive; my slogan is ‘happy products for happy people’ if one of my designs do not match up to this design principle I simply cancel it.
    Currently I am working on a table top concept with table linnen and porcelain, next to that we have a bags collection in the pip(e)line.
    For this Australian lady, we will lauch our bedding collection in Australia in your springtime in the Table and Thing stores. Once again all your sweet comments give me the inspiration to keep on creating beautifull things to make life a little bit more fun.

    Love and kisses

    You have to find these chairs and tell us more about them.
    (This is not about your particular post here.)

    I think they are fabulous, thought you might too.

    wow – lots of color – so pretty! I don’t know if I could do a whole room in it, but would like to get a few pieces to add a little color here and there.

    Oh YES this is lovely!!!
    I don’t know if you can’t get this anywhere in Denmark but then Quelle is not that far from here – relatively speaking. The language on the website is German and the currency is Euro.
    We have to redecorate our bedroom. Have an old iron bed (and a new one, the one I originally had is a single bed) which is painted black. Had thought about some serene and white decor. But not anymore I think. Don’t want all of it – probably wouldn’t be able to sleep then – but a few touches of it would be lovely, I’m sure. Time for a trip to Flensburg I recon. :-)
