  • The new minimalism in home living
    Tue 29, 2017
  • What is it that makes Scandinavian interior design today so unbelievably attractive for many people? Are the furniture brands from Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Finland that regularly gather in Cologne simply so irresistible? Or is it that “Scandi style” exudes optimism with its laid-back feel and fresh colours, and evokes images of a simple life surrounded by birch trees in the land of Pippi Longstocking? We are gladly exchanging our high-gloss ambiance – the product of hard-fought negotiations about our work/life balance –and replacing it with solid-wood furniture and felt slippers. Digitally controlled lighting is making way for simple candle holders. Our windows now double as vertical gardens, and the designer couch is topped with an unassuming woollen throw. Now the moment for relaxation has come.
