In the world of interiors, the Scandinavian aesthetic has long been a favoured style to try in homes and gardens, largely due to its neutral, minimalist and contemporary qualities. It’s a style which suits most homes and gardens, whether you’re living in a flat or a five bedroom house. With many of us spending the summer at home this year, we wanted to show you some simple tricks on how you can create the perfect hygge (a Danish term meaning ‘a quality of cosiness and comfortable conviviality, that engenders a feeling of contentment or well-being’) space for you and your family.
Stockholm Corner Lounge Set
Our aptly named Stockholm Corner Lounge Set is the perfect combination of comfort and style. Featuring a corner sofa and dining table, the set offers you the chance to lounge and dine all in one spot. The set will take you from lazy afternoons spent lounging with a good book or a glass of Pimms, to evenings enjoying a 3 course alfresco dinner with guests, thanks to its generous 6 seater sofa.
The polyrattan, which authentically mimics the rustic appearance of rattan, is stylish and contemporary, whilst the light grey tone emphasises the minimalist and neutral Scandinavian tones even further.
Try decorating the area with cosy throws and cushions, wild flowers in vases and lanterns scattered around for a traditional Scandinavian midsummer vibe - we guarantee you won’t be disappointed!
Stockholm Chaise Lounge Set with Armchair
Another popular interior term is ‘Lagom’, meaning ‘just the right amount’ in Norwegian and Swedish, and that’s exactly what you’ll get with our Stockholm Chaise Lounge Set with Armchair. Exuding sophistication but in a simplistic way, the set is the perfect spot to spend an afternoon relaxing in the sun.
Made from polyrattan, the versatile set comfortably seats up to 5 people and is ideal for any garden space. It is made up of modular elements, which combine together to form the ultimate alfresco spot.
Offering the same level of comfort as your indoor sofa, you may opt to recline on the luxurious chaise or have a seat to yourself on the spacious armchair. The sofa is finished in a favoured Scandinavian colour palette of grey rattan and cream cushions.
The complementing wood-effect coffee table is the perfect surface to place your hot and cold drinks and nibbles, whilst the shelf underneath can be used to store books and sun cream.
With Scandinavian design, the phrase ‘less is more’ often comes to mind, so try to keep the decor scheme simple yet cosy by choosing only what you need to create maximum Scandi appeal.
Concrete Planters and Pots
We offer a range of suitable concrete planters and pots to complete your Scandinavian scheme. A popular collection in the USA and parts of Europe, we are pleased to be one of the first in the UK to offer these superb quality, concrete planters and plant pots.
There are a variety of shapes and styles to choose from, including a Wide Concrete Planter with Two Sections, which is available in three sizes - 47cm, 65cm and 85cm, as well as our Set of 2 Concrete Planters on a Wooden Stand, which is also available in three sizes. A particularly Scandinavian option is our Set of 3 Square Concrete Plant Shelf Units, which features a small, medium and large unit, offering a contemporary and staggered look. Wood elements and other textures are often featured in Scandinavian design, due to their warm and inviting nature.
With the COVID-19 pandemic continuing to cause problems for our travel plans, creating idyllic staycations have never been so crucial. It is hard not to fall in love with the Scandinavian aesthetic, due to its minimalist, contemporary and timeless style, which is why we feel this is one of the most effective and easiest interior trends you could adopt this summer.
