Our latest style obsession!!…Scandinavian or Nordic design. Both interior design and the furniture design itself. This style is generally characterized by white walls, wood floors, clean, minimal furnishings in natural materials accented by soft pastel hues and bold geometric prints. Due to the long winter and short summer days in Scandinavia, the use of light and open space is crucial in Nordic Design, this creates a contrast to the Nordic landscape and creates a warm, inviting interior. Whether you prefer the monochromatic palette, or the more feminine pastel variety, Nordic design has something for everyone. Here’s what we found inspirational, and some of ModShop’s own Nordic inspired collections. Enjoy!
