Here at Fat Shack Vintage, you’ll find our extensive range of Scandi-inspired lighting.
Denmark is at the forefront of Scandi design, with furniture, décor, homewares, textiles, ceramics, lighting, and more being manufactured en masse during the 20th and 21st centuries. Iconic designers from this style include Alvar Aalto, Hans J. Wegner, Poul Henningsen, Arne Jacobsen, and Borge Mogensen.
Scandinavian design is characterised by a strong focus on clean lines, minimalism, and an emphasis on functionality that doesn’t compromise on beauty or superior craftsmanship. Scandi style loves to use untreated light woods such as beech, pine, oak, and ash, as well as materials such as metal, glass, leather, linen, wool, cotton, etc. Contrasting materials such as metal (often black or copper) are popular, however this is always softened with natural textiles such as rugs, blankets, wood, and sheer curtains.
Above all, Scandinavian design is all about creating ‘hygge’, which is an untranslatable Danish word that evokes images of cosiness – think cedar scented candles, a fireplace, hot cups of tea, and family and friends by your side.
