What is Scandinavian Design?
Arisen in the 1950’s, in the five Nordic countries of Finland, Norway, Sweden, Iceland and Denmark, Scandinavian design has become a household name in everyday living. While the term Scandinavia only refers to the three kingdoms of Denmark, Sweden, and Norway, the term is often used colloquially to refer to all five of these countries. After the 1947 edition of the Triennale de Milano design exhibition in the city of Milan, Scandinavian home décor had the world captivated.
“Clean lines, token ornamentation and flawless craftsmanship was the essence of its aesthetic.”
This movement towards minimalism transformed the modern design industry. Elaborate, ornate furniture was replaced with natural qualities, warm tones and honest materials. The idea that beautiful everyday furniture and decor should not merely serve the elites is what led Scandi style to be loved across the globe.
