Every region in the world has its own distinct feel. In America alone, there are so many cities and towns with certain flavors. You could tell someone (or something) is from New York. You can do the same for Chicago, Los Angeles, Portland, Minnesota, Buffalo, etc. The list can go on and on. All of these places have their own furniture or home interior aesthetic. If that’s the case for America, imagine all the different flavors in the world – some of which you’re probably familiar with, others not so much. Have you ever heard of Nordic furniture? With the help of the Irish Times, we’ll explain it to you.
Alanna Gallagher writes, “It is cool, clean, and collectible, which is covered in a new book that celebrates the lesser-known ‘Scandi chic’ designers who have some of the world’s most exciting ideas and styles for modern home design. Since the 1950s Scandinavian design has been to the forefront of the international modern movement.”
Although you might not have heard of Nordic furniture, you’re definitely familiar with what it looks like. You also might be familiar with some of the designers, people like Arne Jacobsen, Finn Juhl, and Hans J Wegner. All you really need to know is that Nordic furniture seems to be breaking into the public consciousness, as its pieces aren’t simply relegated to the homes of the rich, famous, and posh. Before long, you might see more types of Nordic furniture at your local stores.
