Scandinavian Design - Sustainable Style

23rd November 2018

Scandinavian design has been a significant trend throughout 2018 and it doesn’t look like it’s going anywhere. It is about creating a sustainable look with timeless pieces that won’t age quickly.

With minimalist, muted background colours such as white, pale greys, blues and greens it is easy to lay the foundations of this style. Then you just need to bring in the influences that make this look so special. And the Swedes do this with statement furniture, lighting and textiles. The key to this look is for it to look simple, understated and effortless.


One of the best ways to recreate this style is with great lighting. Simple, elegant lighting in ceramics, often with a matte finish works well. The style is quite utilitarian but with a soft focus. To shop for Scandinavian lighting go to Ferm Living website.

Statement Furniture

Another key part of Scandinavian design is taking usual household objects and turning them into something beautiful. To make a focal point of something that is often overlooked in your home.
