SFD Furniture Design Blog – Scandinavian Life & Design
Famous for their simplicity, utility, and beauty. Scandinavian homes have a pure, pared-backed style that is centred around warm functionality, clean lines, flawless craftsmanship, natural colours and materials. Everything we do, we do with great respect and love for nature. It makes the core and soul of every piece of furniture and accessory we produce. In our designs we strive for excellence, constantly seeking stunning new forms and unique materials, providing functionality and extraordinary character.
Scandinavian Life & Design
Scandinavian life and design are all about simplicity, functionality and a focus on natural materials. This aesthetic has its roots in the Nordic countries of Sweden, Norway and Denmark, but it has become popular all over the world.
Scandinavian design is often described as “less is more.” This philosophy is reflected in the clean lines and uncluttered look of Scandinavian interiors. Furniture is designed to be functional and comfortable, without being overly ornate.
Scandinavian living is all about enjoying the simple things in life. This might mean taking a walk in the forests or enjoying a cup of coffee with friends. Whatever it is, it should be enjoyed to the fullest!
What topics do we write about in our blog? Here you can read about Scandinavian style, design, our products, woodwork, wood maintenance, handcrafting by SFD Furniture Design and much more! Take your coffee cup and enjoy a few minutes of quality reading.
