What is Scandinavian style furniture?
Scandinavian style furniture refers to an iconic design movement that champions simplicity, functionality, and minimalism. This unique, aesthetic emerged in the early 20th century and gained traction in the 1950s in all five of the Nordic countries: Denmark, Iceland, Sweden, Norway, and Finland.
Today, Scandinavian furniture styles are loved in Australia and the world over.
What is Scandinavian home decor?
Scandinavian furniture and home décor are light, clean, and minimalist. It incorporates soft colours and natural materials, especially timber, and texture, such as wool and linen. Designs typically highlight natural light, which, unlike here in Australia, can be sparse.
Why is Scandinavian design so popular?

- Its versatility. Whether it’s a cosy armchair or sleek dining table, Scandinavian furniture works in just about every area of the home or office.
- Its calming presence. With a light, minimal aesthetic, Scandinavian furniture creates a calming atmosphere.
- Its philosophy is more relevant now than ever. The ideals behind Scandinavian design still ring true. In today’s chaotic, consumerist world, quality and longevity have never been more sought-after.
