When purchasing pieces of Scandinavian furniture you don’t have to stress, as it doesn’t require an endless budget. Affordable and expensive furniture are as equally beneficial for this style. The objective of the style is to provide an element of simplicity with maximum comfort. In terms of design, Scandi style is far more simple than the intensity of Loft and Traditional styles. Scandi vibe is easy to create by using simple blend furniture and décor ideas, colour palettes and accessories.



Because of light toned wood furniture, light colour palettes and simple décor solutions without extra accent furniture and loud accessories, Scandi style visually expands the space. Furthermore, it provides more air and light without losing comfort. It’s great for compact apartments and small spaces, where usable space is imperative to living standards.

Natural/Organic Material

Scandinavian interiors are characterised by furniture created with natural wood or unfinished textures. Wooden flooring is an awesome base for which you build inviting and comfy living spaces. As opposed to other styles like art deco, industrial and modern, Scandi styles uses a minimum of synthetic materials to provide a natural feel.


Creating the Perfect Atmosphere of Style

  • Give your room plenty of sunlight. Try not to use heavy/big curtains and extra accessories. Choose blinds or curtains produced with light linen or refrain from using curtains altogether.
  • To make your space bright and more comfortable, use light/white paint for the walls. To give the space a look of overall minimalism, use bright accents such as stripes of colourful wallpaper, prints, photos and vivid paintings/wall art.
  • Use wooden furniture. Scandi style is synonymous with all things organic and natural. Natural wood is perfect for all settings. It provides the perfect option for flooring, walls and furniture frames. Scandinavian furniture is typically produced with unfinished solid wood, such as beech, birch and oak.

Give the space some bright design elements. Give the natural look of wood flooring a colourful rug: this will add to the comfort as well as enliven the space. Provide extra comfort and complete your chair, loveseat or sofa with some throw pillows. Bright shaded table lamps add a playful feel to a sitting area. The main point to remember is not to add clutter to the minimalist element of the space.
