Danish furniture – retro materials, contemporary style
Comfortable, simple and cutting-edge, just a few words to describe Danish furniture and why it’s so popular. Originating after the war, designers like Poul Henningsen and Ray and Charles Eames created delightful, original furniture and homewares that well ahead became broadly famous during the 1950’s. Danish designers saw an opportunity to develop contemporary pieces of furniture that were both beautiful and functional while maintaining the traditional craftsmanship the Danish are known for. The coziness and simplicity of Danish furniture is mostly due to the use of natural materials like teak, oak and quality fabrics. They are not only perfect in any room, but they will also last if maintained and cared for. Modern Danish style furniture combines exquisite attention to detail and a respect for the object’s function with a keen eye for contemporary trends, delivering an endlessly appealing aesthetic.
Crisp, streamlined with sharp geometric shapes epitomise the style of Scandinavian furniture. Smooth edges with no fuss designs, adornments and cuts are used in furniture styles to focus on style and comfort.
Pops of Brightness & Colour
Look for furniture with bursts of colours in red, yellow, blue and green to complement backdrops and interiors with black and white as a palette.
Fittings And Fixtures Bridging The Gap Between Vintage & Modern
Danish furnishings usually consist of neutrals like whites, creams and blacks. If this is what you had in mind for your space, then colours will usually come from furniture pieces, accents like cushions, paintings and light fixtures.
