Keep it Simple with Scandinavian Furniture
The keys to a Scandinavian inspired design are simplicity, utility, and beauty. Be it a chair, table, sofa, or sideboard, Scandinavian furniture celebrates clean lines and flawless craftsmanship, and it’ll provide your home a purposeful design with understated luxury. Earthy tones, honest materials, and minimal decor—this light and bright, Danish-influenced look speaks for itself.
Scandinavian furniture is characterized by simple, minimal, and functional design and emerged in the 1950s from the five Nordic countries: Finland, Norway, Sweden, Iceland, and Denmark (although the Danish and Swedish influences became most important to the world of interiors). This look is all about chic simplicity and features pieces like a rectangular sofa with exposed teak wood legs, or a table or desk in natural finishes with beveled lines. And although this look is minimalist, don’t forget the details: contemporary lighting with clean, elegant lines, pouf ottomans, and metallic accents. Pro tip: Succulents are a structural, easy to maintain way to add texture and color to a calm, Scandinavian design.
