In the 1950s, a design style emphasizing craftsmanship, simplicity and functionality emerged in Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Finland. This style became known collectively as Scandinavian design. As much an ideological movement as a look, Scandinavian design espoused creating beautiful and useful pieces that are approachable and accessible to everyone.
At Lumens, designs from all Scandinavian countries are represented, as is a wide range of Scandinavian-based brands: Fritz Hansen, Lightyears, Eva Solo and Louis Poulsen in Denmark, Wastberg and Design House Stockholm in Sweden, and Artek and Secto Design in Finland.
Why We Love Scandinavian Designs
Knowing how important and enriching good design can be, we love the idea of modern design created for all. And we simply love the overall look. When gathered together as a group, a proliferation of white finishes, pale woods and formal yet delicate forms give Scandinavian interior design an overall light and cheerful quality. This distinctively blithe personality means that Scandinavian furniture and accessories are refreshingly natural and without pretentiousness, and are equally comfortable in contemporary and classic settings.
It truly is modern design that anyone can enjoy.
