From Denmark to Norway, the cool winds of the Baltic blow down grand ideas in home decor. Import some of that charm the easy way with this delightful selection of Scandi furniture and see how snug your flat can feel.
If you think of squabbles with your partner and flimsy materials when you think of “Scandinavian furniture”, this section is going to be a lovely change of pace. With all the best of what Scandi design has to offer—its stunning good looks, its cozy and comfy layout—and none of the stress, we’re absolutely head over heels for these pieces. Don’t worry, you won’t need to learn Norwegian or be able to explain the concept of hygge to pick something out fantastic here, we’ve got plenty of smart guidance for you!
Maybe it’s because it can be a bit on the dimmer side of things weather-wise all the way up North, its designers tend to go for lustrous light wood stains, bright primary colours, and plush, cozy fabrics for their furniture. That means this section is just the thing if your home is feeling a bit glum—a visual pick-me-up! For instance, we love antique furniture, especially pieces with dark lacquer and tarnished brass, but it does take the vibe of a room back to the era of candlelight. To electrify the space try a low sideboard in blonde wood with whitewashed cabinets and a few woven baskets, which will help keep your home tidy too. It’s amazing how just a few small things can really liven things up, but if you still feel a bit gloomy try a Persian rug in scarlett or honey; it’s sure to look the business with the rest of your vintage decor, while its bright colour complements the Scandi vibe perfectly.
