We thought minimalist, organized interiors meant sparse, empty spaces – until we discovered Scandinavian furniture. The region’s interior style is based on simple pieces with a clean aesthetic while embracing the Danish notion of hygge, which is to create comfortable and welcoming spaces of contentment. It also often incorporates Mid-Century style shapes, which is perhaps why we can’t stop pinning the style to all our in-house moodboards. Now you can turn your Scandi interior dreams into reality with these online furniture finds that don’t require a day of hiking at IKEA.
