What is Scandinavian Design?

What is Scandinavian Design?
Scandinavian design originated in the Nordic countries—Denmark, Norway,
Sweden, Finland, and Iceland—in the early 20th century. It emphasizes clean
lines, minimalism, and functionality without sacrificing beauty.
Key characteristics include:

- Simplicity: Less is more in Scandinavian design. Spaces are free from clutter,

focusing on essential elements.

- Natural Elements: There is a strong connection to nature, with a preference for

natural materials like wood, wool, and linen.

- Light and Airy: Scandinavian interiors are often bright and airy, maximizing

natural light with neutral colour palettes.

- Functionality: Every item in a Scandinavian home has a purpose, blending form

and function seamlessly.
