Scandinavian interior design is known for its elegance, cleanness and functionality. A mixture of styles from Denmark, Norway, Finland and Sweden are used as inspiration for the design elements, making for simple yet stunning interiors. These Nordic styles have been popular in the UK for quite some time now, and there is no better way to incorporate this aesthetic into your home than a good Scandi style rug.
Scandi style rugs come in a wide range of sizes, patterns, colours and shapes. Because the Nordic interior style is largely influenced by the climate in which it evolved, with long Winters and limited sunlight, white and neutral colour palettes are the most common. This helps to brighten up Scandinavian homes that are enshrouded in darkness for much of the year. The colours are not just neutral and pale, and darker colours are also used to create contrast to the pale shades, and many designs feature a splash of colour. As such, there are a variety of bold, stylish Scandi rugs to choose from.
Natural materials are used in a lot of Scandi style furniture, including rugs. The rugs are regularly adorned with unique, textured patterns that are both interesting and simplistic. As Scandi interiors use a lot of wood, including wooden floors, Scandi rugs are a very popular addition as an item that is not only functional, but can bring the entire aesthetic of the room together. Whether you are thinking about getting a Scandi rug to complete your Nordic inspired interior, or just to increase the elegance and visual appeal of your home, they are an attractive and trendy item of paraphernalia.
The above image shows one of the Scandi rugs in our range, which is a stunning Skald rug decorated with simple and modern geometric patterns. It works perfectly to compliment the Nordic style room in the image, and this is a great example of how a Scandinavian style rug can complete the aesthetic of an interior. The very large windows to allow optimal natural light in is a key feature of Scandi design. Since the daylight they get in Nordic countries is so limited, they want to make the most of it. The colour palette of this room involves neutral and subdued tones, which when paired with the minimalist decoration, gives off an extremely elegant visual.
