What is a Scandinavian traditional living style?

Scandinavian style is often seen as a light and spacious interior with clean lines and natural elements, but it doesn't always have to be that way. Scandinavian traditional is about the Swedish roots. It’s archetypal of Swedish furniture and home furnishings from the late 18th to early 19th century. In this time, people were inseparable from nature and this is also reflected in the houses of the time: furniture of natural materials with graceful lines and accessories handmade by craftsmen.

    Scandinavian furniture

    The furniture in a Scandinavian, traditional interior is simple, light, functional and of good quality. They are made of wood and metal and combined with linen and yarn. Besides the simple look, you often find traditional details on the furniture, such as cornices and turned legs.

    Scandinavian colours 

    The long, dark winters in Scandinavia call for more light in the home. The Scandinavian home style is therefore characterised by a unique mix of colours, materials, finishes and patterns. This combination provides the authentic look. Choose Scandinavian colours for your furniture and home accessories. For example, white and earth tones, but also grey, dark blue and black.
