What is the definition of ‘Scandi Style’?

Historically, Nordic Countries used to experience a climate which included very little day light and this, accompanied by the fact that they usually had small houses, meant that residents craved a bright and airy home.

The Scandi aesthetic has been popular since the early 20th century and many people hope to recreate the feel in their own homes today. Essentially, Scandinavian style is a balance of functionality and aesthetics – Nordic people want the very best quality pieces but want them to look as good as they perform.

“Scandinavian style is characterised by three key components – functionality, simplicity and beauty. Although simple in design, clean lines are often incorporated with understated elegance and warm functionality, which creates a very homely feel.” – Craig Ritche, Ikea’s Communication and Interior Design Manager

In order to create this bright open space, many people look to windows and light in order to achieve this. Due to the traditional long Nordic days, making the most out of natural daylight is essential in achieving the real Scandinavian atmosphere in your home.
