Scandinavian-style living room designs and ideas for a luxury, modern home
Invest in sleek, streamlined Scandi-style furniture
Nordic interiors are globally renowned for their furniture that has paved the way for clean, swooping lines and experimental shapes to become a Scandinavian style mainstay.
Invest in functional, simplistic items which exude innovative craftsmanship and true comfort for a space that appears welcoming and radiant. Sculptural tables, chairs, sofas and sideboards that utilise natural materials such as wood, leather and wool are what makes this stand-out theme so appealing.
This stunning Scandi living room in Asta House spotlights tapered-legged furniture and sleek shapes for design that blurs the boundaries between Scandinavian minimalism and mid-century modern.
Natural-looking lighting to brighten spaces
An abundance of bright lighting is another commonplace feature of this popular design movement, and have originated from the long, dark winters that have become so routine for Scandinavia’s inhabitants.
Highlight windows with lightweight coverings such as blinds over dense curtains to maximise natural daylight; pair with white walls and large mirrors like in this opulent Pink Mews apartment to transform a smaller space into a reflective oasis.
When natural lighting is minimal, experiment with an eclectic mix of artificial styles to mimic the same brightening effect. Spotlights and angled lamps offer direct light, perfect for relaxing evening pastimes such as reading. For a softer glow, clusters of candles and flowing pendant lights contribute to a warming, hygge (pronounced hue-guh) ambience.
