From the growing “Hygge” (pronounced hoo-guh, meaning “to hug” or “console”) movement, to the clean, European styling the Danish are known for, Nordic design looks fresh and instantly light this year.
It starts with simplicity. Think pieces made with Scandinavian-inspired minimalism in mind. It’s all about clean lines and light tones, such as BDI’s Radius console. But simple doesn’t mean staid. With the proper staples in place, it’s time to layer on the textures as well: sheepskin rugs, chunky hand-knit throws, beaded and tasseled pillows, and heavily embroidered poufs. The new Nordic also means cozier spaces throughout.
