Hygge: ‘A quality of cosiness, and comfortable conviviality, that engenders a feeling of contentment or well-being; regarded as a defining characteristic of Danish culture.’
Scandinavian design, an aesthetic marked by minimalism and functionality, has been hugely influential since its inception in the early 20th century, but ideas from the Nordic region still infiltrate mainstream design to this day. There is a certain sense of serenity in the simple lines and silhouettes and the furniture connects with nature through the craftsmanship of the natural wood and detailing. Buyers feel safe investing in furniture that will stand the test of time.
In continuation of our long-standing Nordic love affair, this June we host our second Selected Danish Collection, showcasing an eclectic mix of premium pieces from the 1950s through to the 1980s. Highlights include pieces by Arne Vodder, Mogens Hansen, Ingmar Relling and Børge Mogensen to name a few.
Adhering to the “less is more” philosophy, it is rare to see a Scandinavian home full of clutter or colour but a little bit of colour goes a long way. And, what better way to inject a splash than with the streamlined silhouette of a Louis Poulsen ceiling light in glossy red, purple or orange? The collection also boasts some wonderful Danish lighting and floor rugs to complement the restrained armchairs, sofas and sideboards.
Don’t miss the opportunity to splurge on a new winter piece for your home or office.
