The Danish, purveyors of all things stylish, have done it again with &Tradition, an interior design brand with a collection that is a veritable cornucopia of the best of Nordic design. With form meeting function and craft meeting art, &Tradition has taken its Scandic heritage and redefined it in a collection of seriously stylish contemporary designer lighting and furniture.
Scandinavian interior style is classic yet sometimes quirky, always simple, timeless and extremely relaxed. Drawing from sharp contemporary design pieces, perfectly married with softer elements of nature, Houseology’s &Tradition collection includes stunning designer furniture pieces that are set to become future design classics. Our designers have curated this gallery for your inspiration, to help take the hard work out of achieving this look effortlessly.
Scandinavian interiors feature natural materials of wood and stone in a cool palette to reflect the natural elements of the Northern Hemisphere. The colour palette can range from dark timbers to whitewash wood, which can be used individually or blended together to create contrast. To get the look, try the &Tradition In Between Chair SK1, crafted from solid wood and pressed veneer, the chair, designed by Sami Kallio, echoes the style of Hans Wegner, a Danish designer whose work Kallio cites as an inspiration. In Between gives a respectful nod to the past while still looking forward.
Typically designed with white wall finishes and wooden flooring, the Scandic look stays warm with an injection of earthy toned accessories. Timber accents like the &Tradition Raft Stool and Milk Table Lamp, inject some warmth into this cool palette. The dimmable white opal glass of the designer table lamp, by NORM Architects, brings a soft, subtle glow to create a zen like harmony in your home.
Monochromatic colour schemes are a key look in Scandic interiors and are a classic combination that stands the test of time. Monochromatic does not only have to be represented by a black and white palette, all the shades in between are part of this look too. Try the &Tradition Topan VP6 Black and Gold Pendant Light for a Luxe take on the traditional pared back scheme.
Although black and white schemes are dominant in Nordic schemes, the mood doesn’t always have to be sombre with Sandic design. Colour also has a role to play and bold graphic colours are perfect for adding an extra dimension. Inject a splash of life into your design with the fabulous &Tradition Flowerpot Table Lamp V3. Its quirky design lines are playful and the colours are fabulously refreshing, making this the perfect piece for an instant interior pick-me-up.
