What is important for you in your design and selection of products? It is important that the product match my personal style and the brand, and also that we can answer for the quality and functionality of the product.
Why have you started this blog? We would like to bring our readers inspiration on how to use our products, also in ways that might not be the obvious. We want to showcase how our products have been carefully selected so that they will fit into many different kinds of homes and lifestyles.
The name of the blog is ͚Nordal – The Daily Living Blog͛, where did the name come from? All our products are designed and developed to be useful in the daily life. That’s why we chose this name. We are also planning to post ideas on how to use the products for birthdays, parties, holidays and other special celebrations. It is important to us that our products are not becoming dust collectors, but are getting used; and that’s what this blog will help you with!
