How to Create the Scandinavian Look with Your Sofa

 

Scandinavian design has been around since the 1950s, where its popularity shows no sign of slowing down with this design movement growing in strength year upon year. With a focus on simplicity, minimalism, and functionality, Scandi design incorporates natural materials, use of natural textures and elements and also manages to create a real sense of cosiness.

If a Scandi style appeals to you, here’s a guide on how you can create the Scandinavian look with your sofa.

It’s All in the Colour

Your interior colour palette has a large part to play in helping to create a Scandi living room. The colour palette mostly focuses on neutral and natural colours - think hues of whites, greys, browns, and blacks, with small splashes of brighter colour, perhaps through artwork or accessories.

These neutral colours align with that essence of minimalism and simplicity, and with a sofa like the Kelston Range, this provides the perfect complement to your Scandi interiors.

Think Texture

The texture is equally important when it comes to Scandi design. Heavily influenced by a connection to nature, natural materials are key, with a leather sofa like the Kingly a popular choice. With leather available in numerous colours including white, black and tan, it also aligns with the Scandi colour palette.

Form and Function

You won’t find clutter in a Scandinavian living room – everything has its place and purpose; it is functional yet stylish and comfortable. Think about natural shapes and clean lines with a sofa like the Sandhurst also available as a sofa bed, doubling up on its functionality while offering clean lines and a modern, stylish design.

Comfort is Key

While there is a real focus on simplicity and minimalism, that doesn’t mean that Scandi design is stark or uncomfortable, it’s quite the contrary. Utilising layers and contrasting textures, such as faux fur or woollen throws, cushions on a leather sofa, and rugs on a wooden floor, immediately create a sense of warmth, inviting you to sit down and relax.

Take a corner sofa like the Feather Extra Deep Sofa - it is both a corner and deep sofa. Layer it with textured throws and cushions, and it won’t be long before your family is fighting over who gets to sit, lie, or relax on it!

Before You Go…

While creating a Scandi look with your sofa will help create the effect you’re looking for, it makes sense to expand your design concept across your living space so it all ties together.

Light is important to Scandi design, with countries like Finland and Sweden having a lot less light in the winter months, they need to create light interiors to counter the dark outside. Light can come from your walls, with white walls helping create a blank canvas along with light, bare floors, which can be warmed up with a rug, all help to complement your sofa.
