70's ♥♥♥


Shooting in LA is great... Shopping is ever greater! I ran into this gorgeous vintage 70's coat! 



Welcome to the wonderful world of Sukha Amsterdam… An amazing concept store!

The shop itself already has a wonderful interior with its high ceilings, white walls and beautiful grey painted concrete floor. The interior with it’s big shop window changes quite a lot and it is always a surprise to see what is next. I really love to come here and think the shop has a really good vibe.  At Sukha you will find fashion, books, accessories, presents and unique handmade products.

Sukha betekent ‘levensvreugde’ in het Sanskriet, de taal van de Boeddhistische monniken in India en Nepal. Bij Sukha vind je mode, interieur, accessoires, cadeautjes, boeken, workshops en reizen onder één dak.

De producten van Sukha komen onder andere uit India, Nepal, Marokko, Peru, Indonesië en Nederland. Ze zijn hergebruikt, van hout, vintage of worden op een verantwoorde manier geproduceerd met aandacht voor de arbeidsomstandigheden in de fabrieken en respect voor de mensen uit het land van herkomst. Naast producten onder het eigen label, verkoopt Sukha ook bekende en minder bekende merken met handgemaakte en unieke producten.

Sukha is naast een modern warenhuis ook een rustpunt in de drukke stad, want je kunt er even rustig zitten, een boek lezen en koffie of thee drinken.

To live is a verb


Not just an empty word, but a fact. Everyone in continuously focused on living.
Some want to live smart (with telephony and information technology); others want to live cosily (cocooned in the atmosphere at home).
Most women determine what the interior will look like, men only play a background role.
Living has added value, because of all the possibilities that interior can offer.
I consider colour as the makup that gives the interior taste.
Fortunately, more and more people are paying attention to colours  - you can even see green and yellow cars in the streets! 
Make sure you use your senses and taste the day. Smell, feel, hear and enjoy.
You will achieve emotional peace if you let colours, shapes and materials caress your senses.
You will feel at home.

Herringbone flooring

is gespecialiseerd in Visgraat vloeren. Natuurlijk verkopen wij ook andere patroon vloeren zoals hongaarse punt.

Onze visgraat van massief eiken of een gelaagde plank is, door de uitstraling en maatvoering, de moderne versie van de klassieke visgraat.

In onze showroom bieden wij je een breed overzicht van massieve houten vloeren, lamel parket en verouderde houten vloeren. Wij kunnen je de vele kleurafwerkingen en legmethodes laten zien aan de hand van de gepresenteerde vloeren. Zo kunt je optimaal ervaren hoe uw ‘toekomstige’ vloer eruit ziet.

Oak wood is very suitable in herringbone design. Herringbone a layered board, because of  the measurements, it’s the new version of the classic herringbone. The parts can be supplied in 14,16 or 18 cm wide, in lengths  about 70-90 cm, so the floor looks modern and robust, but with a wink to the classic parquet floor.

At Uipkes wood flooring we also design Hungarian point floors and Versaille pattern floors. If you have special requirements for a pattern floor we can advise you at any time. We can also deliver different patterns or help you design your own pattern. At Uipkes we design your wishes.
