What is Scandinavian Furniture Design?

In the furniture industry, the term Scandinavian Contemporary (also called Danish Modern) is used to describe a utilitarian design style in natural wood that was popularized by Danish and Swedish designers in the 1960s. It is characterized by straight, clean lines, simple design and no ornamentation except the natural grain in the wood.

In contemporary Scandinavian furniture, the major driving force is “form and function”: an attempt to harmonize the aesthetic qualities of furniture with the obvious practical functions of sitting, eating, sleeping, etc. Visit the Danish furniture website for more information about this unique style.
