You have probably heard more than once about Scandinavia as a whole or have an idea of the individual countries that make up this region of northern Europe? Recently we have been curious whether our friends think the same thing about this region as we do. We played a game of association with them. They had to answer what they associated with a particular Scandinavian country. Here are the answers we obtained:
Sweden – Winter, Snow, Volvo, Pipi Langstrumpf, The Queen, IKEA, Abba
Norway – Vikings! Great nature, Eco, Red Houses,
Denmark – The Little Mermaid, Copenhagen, Lots of bikes
Finland – Nokia (Connecting People), Moomins, Sauna
Do you have similar feelings? We do too, if you look at these countries stereotypically.
But we have been tempted to explore the subject and find something really special and inspiring in Scandinavia. One such element is beautiful, immaculate nature. Swedish forests or Norwegian mountains are for us an everyday dose of new ideas. We must not forget about the culture – Hygge philosophy, Lagom or lesser known Norwegian KOS help us to find our individual style and inner peace, which we try to share with you. We also draw our inspirations from old cultures and habits. The so-called Sami People, who have lived in this region for over 3500 years, are an excellent example. Isn’t it wonderful that their descendants are still continuing their traditions today? We can still learn so much from them, especially in the field of crafts.
Scandinavia is much more for us – a place full of inspiration and new challenges. We try to put this into every piece of furniture that we create in order to give you a bit of this extraordinary place.
We leave the answer to you.
