A little bit of history:
The Scandinavian style comes from the north of Europe and its source can be found in the characteristics of the Scandinavian environment. Apart from mountainous, densely wooded landscapes, these countries are famous for their short, cold days. Only during the summer months can you count on more sun and light.
No wonder that the local style is based primarily on bright colors, simple forms and organic, natural materials. The annual Lunning Price awards granted to designers in the 1950s and 1960s contributed to the popularization of Scandinavian style in Europe. Thanks to them, the trend was also heard in other countries.

Advantages of Scandinavian style
The Scandinavian style represents simple and uncomplicated aesthetics, which derives from a combination of basic design principles – purity of form, functionality and timeless solutions.
The ascetic style cuts itself off from the richness of decorations, details and directs us towards elegant minimalism wrapped in simple forms. In addition, elements of interior design in Scandinavian style are made of natural materials, which makes it associated with ecology and nature.
The color scheme allows to optically enlarge the space and create bright, warm rooms, where wooden furniture not only complements the room, but is above all practical. The selection of appropriate models will allow us to create timeless decoration.
Who will be most comfortable with such furniture?
The Scandinavian style will work well in many apartments. Depending on your preferences and tastes, you can create a space in this spirit without splendor and exaggeration. The style will be impressive both in a small studio and a spacious house. It will be especially suitable for interiors belonging to people who appreciate simplicity and minimalism, where simple Scandinavian furniture will provide the tenants with comfort and confidence that it will be an investment for years to come.
