You’ve seen them in countless home tours in the last couple of weeks, and you probably repined images of interiors where they can be spotted. Sometimes you don’t readily notice them because you are still gazing at the whole picture, but they are the details that create the look you’ve been loving lately.
We’re talking about a few hit pieces that have been increasingly popular in Scandinavian interiors. Some of them are classic mid-century designs making a comeback (but did they ever leave?), and others are by trendy or up-and-coming designers.
Here are 8 trendy furnishings that will update your home style to a magazine-worthy look that is oh so right now.
A silk rug
Solid-colored silk rugs are everywhere lately, and understandably so – The gentle sheen of these handmade rugs is a simplistic yet tasteful and elegant choice to elevate any room. A more affordable alternative is a viscose rug, but bear in mind it might not hold well to foot traffic as much as a silk rug.
A Taccia lamp
A modern design reminiscent of an upside-down hanging lamp. Created by Achile Castiglioni and Pier Giacocomo in 1962, the lamp manufactured by Flos can be spotted in several Scandinavian interiors lately. It is one of the most iconic and beautiful lamp in the history of Italian modern lighting design.
Plinth marble podium
Created by Norm Architects for Danish brand Menu, the Plinth marble podium is a stunning piece in itself, as well as a great podium for a statue or sculpture, stack of books or a lamp. It is available in black or white marble.
Aura table mirror
A beautiful, sculptural and reflecting object that picks up the surrounding light by young Oslo-based designer Bjørn van den Berg for New Works.
Platner coffee table from Knoll
Designed by Warren Platner in 1966, this table (and chairs from the same series) is making a huge comeback. It has a decorative and gentle shape welded of hundreds curved steel rods. It is a piece that transcends time and that works beautifully in different interior styles.
Pierre Jeanneret chair
This cane chair that was initially created for the Indian government is now one of the most popular chairs in the world. The iconic seating was designed by legendary architect Pierre Jeanneret, and it is a great example of mid-century minimalist design.
Henning Koppel pitcher
Manufacturer by Georg Jensen, the stainless steel pitcher by Henning Koppel was designed in 1952. With its striking, graceful and sensuous silhouette, it is such a classic piece. Several sizes are available.
STOFF candle holder
The elegant STOFF candleholders by architect Werner Staff for Hans Nagel in the 1960’s. Stackable, they can be combined into beautiful, sculptural constructions that will catch the eye with and without candles. It is also available in brass. Buy them new, or snag some vintage ones on 1st dibs, Lauritz or Chairish.
