Folksy and fabulous

Traditional folk-style design is not what it once was. Instead it keeps reinventing itself – with one eye on the past and one on the future. Fancy adding a touch of Scandi folk-art anno 2019 to your own home? This is how.

Celebrate an embroidered hero

Cushions are the unsung heroes of interior design. If it’s bold enough, one swap is all it takes to change the expression of your sofa or your bed – or your plywood shelf. SKOGSKORN cushion is a tribute to traditional Scandinavian handicraft. The rich embroidery and the tassels (you really can’t have too many) bring the past right into the future. And it couldn’t look prettier.

“Blue, red and white. Dala horses and shower curtains. This autumn and winter it’s easier than ever to give your home a Scandinavian folk-art infusion.”
