Scandinavian style has long been celebrated for its bright patterns, fresh look and ability to be minimal and welcoming at the same time. We look at some of the best designs for your home.
Patterns to dye for
Do you ever get that feeling that a pattern is so good, you just want to dive into it? It’s something about the saturation of colour, wavy lines and cute curves – certain fabrics make you go weak at the knees. The patterns over at Finnish label Marimekko always make us feel this way. See if you can resist these patterns, we dare you!
Online store Hus & Hem always has something to tempt the eye – whether it’s lighting, home furnishings or just some knock-out crockery you’re after. The gorgeous simplicity of Scandianian style is clear to see. For example, this Vita Conia lamp, inspired by a pine cone, is plain but impressive and would suit almost any home.
Quality materials, built to last
The great thing about Scandinavian products is that they tend to be built from quality materials to give them durability. Wood, wool, ceramic and glass make for really great investment pieces that are environmentally friendly as well as beautiful. Take these colourful wool rugs from Gudrun Sjoden, for example. They are hand woven and embroidered and would make great heirloom pieces.
