The furnishing style of the Scandinavians is clearly influenced by the geographical location and its darkness in winter: In the northern parts of Norway, near the Arctic Circle, the sun no longer rises over the horizon from November and only reappears in January. During the “mørketid”, in other words the polar night or dark time, the Scandinavians like to illuminate their houses and let the lights burn through the night.
As soon as summer comes round, the rooms are flooded with light through large window surfaces. The colour White helps to reflect the sun’s rays and makes spaces appear bigger. Unnecessary objects or dominant pieces of furniture are deliberately removed from the living space to let the sun shine in every corner. In addition to this, the Scandinavians like to combine delicate pastel tones such as Pink, Light Blue, Mint, Grey and Blue. For this purpose, a wall, a piece of furniture or simply a few cushions can serve as an eye-catcher.
The Scandinavians are known to be down to earth.
To create the right foundation for the Light Living style it is best to choose flooring in a Light Grey, Beige or White colour tone regardless of whether its a wood or stone look. In the wide array of EGGER Flooring you will find many designs that give every room that Scandinavian flair.
