Larchmont, New York, November 18, 2014 /PressReleasePing/ – Copenhagen native and marketing expert Louise Fischer of Larchmont has launched Kontrast, an online boutique offering Danish home accessories and special-order furniture by classic and up-and-coming designers. Fischer, a former Madison Avenue marketing executive, was born in Denmark and moved to the U.S. 20 years ago. She returns to her hometown each year to see family and friends and, on a recent visit, was inspired to create Kontrast.

“Danish design is known around the world for its simplicity, style and function,” said Fischer. “I was excited about the challenge of creating something I was really passionate about, something that was my own. Bringing unique Danish design that I love, here to the U.S., became the obvious choice.”

And offering the products online — at www.shopkontrast.com — makes the shopping experience simple and convenient. “I want to make it easy for people in the U.S. to buy these unique, beautifully designed products — at price points that work for them.”

While Danish design is considered by many to be modern, the accessories and furniture offered by Kontrast suit all types of interiors and can add beautiful contrast to a home. The products also are ideal as wedding presents, housewarming and hostess gifts, as well as special birthday and anniversary gifts. “I think Europeans and Americans alike will appreciate the products since they fit in with most interior styles,” said Fischer. “Kontrast is for the design-conscious individual who seeks something unique that can’t be found at the usual U.S. retailers.”

Kontrast will have a launch and shopping event Nov. 20 at the founder’s home in Larchmont, NY, 22 Country Club Drive. Please contact [email protected] for details. To preview and shop, visit www.shopkontrast.com.
