Lagom Issue 7
|Publisher Names||by Margin Media LTD|
Issue #7 is something of a sensory issue: in it we explore taste, scent, tactile experiences, and atmosphere. We visit he homes and workspaces of creative people around the world, and discover new destinations and pastimes to help us escape our screens.
We like to think that in making Lagom magazine, we’re helping to connect a global community of like-minded creatives. If you can’t always travel to the many places that inspire this community, we aim to transport you to a few of these locations, metaphorically, and convey something of their atmosphere in the pages of this issue.
Visiting people and places in Iceland, Norway, Swedish Lapland, southern France, Vermont, Athens, Brooklyn, London, and Paris, we hope you can feel inspired, motivated, enjoy putting your feet up, experiment with a new method of making coffee, or try one of the three recipes you’ll find in this issue.
Lagom is perfect-bound and printed on uncoated stock (300gsm cover, 140gsm interior), with a foil-blocked cover.
Lagom is a lifestyle magazine connecting a global community of like-minded creatives who care about thoughtful design, independent travel, and a balanced approach to life.
Lagom was founded in 2014 by Bristol-based husband-and-wife team Elliot and Samantha Stocks, and the magazine is created by a team of contributors from around the world.

‘Lagom’ is a Swedish word with no direct English translation, but loosely describes the concept of having just the right amount of something: not too little, not too much. This general theme of leading a balanced life pervades every issue of Lagom and guides us to new stories.
The magazine is divided into three distinct sections: Visit, Create, and Unwind. Moving through each issue is a journey, looking behind the doors of inspirational workspaces, hotels, restaurants, and homes from around the world; meeting the entrepreneurs, makers, and craftspeople creating truly unique work; and winding down to learn about the pastimes and hobbies that help attain that all-important sense of balance in our busy, modern lives.
Unlike many lifestyle magazines, we eschew pomposity and keep our feet well and truly on the ground, celebrating people rather than image. We care about the personal stories behind the products and the motivations of the world’s creatives.
