Scandinavian design grew to popularity in the 1950s, and it’s inspired by Danish, Norwegian, and Swedish life philosophy and design. Hygge is both a philosophy and a state of mind that is central to Scandinavian design, and it refers to how coziness and comfort in your own home are directly tied to the owner’s well-being.
Scandinavian design is also minimalist at heart. Simplicity, functionality, and beauty along with maximizing lighting are central in this design. Nordic countries get, at best, seven hours of daylight during wintertime, so the color palette, carpeting, and flooring are crafted and installed to maximize this resource and irradiate brightness for its users in all of its living spaces.
