Movements: Inside Scandinavian Design

Movements: Scandinavian Interior Design

On the shores of Northern Europe, tucked among fjords and immense blue skies where reindeer roam and coffee is virtually inhaled, lie a handful of Kingdoms and countries known as Scandinavia.

Scandinavian design, one of the most recognizable and resilient styles, stems from the political environment of a post-war Europe — when the Nordic Countries adopted Social Democracy and in doing so set the stage for lifestyles founded on functionality, comfort, availability and practicality. This philosophy merged with the Modernist aesthetic to form this effortless and lovely style.

Clean and sophisticated, there’s just so much to love about this minimalistic approach and it just so happens to be quite easy to adopt — especially for those of you who embraced the industrial or the “boho” look. Still, it’s organic, down to earth, functional and cozy. You could even say there’s something bucolic or farmhouse to the aesthetic.

So mix yourself a Swedish 60 (see recipe below) and check out some of the classiest damn “farmhouses” you’ve ever seen.

The Elements of Norwegian Design

  1. Functionality: First and foremost this is an approach to living within a practical environment. Simplicity and comfort are paramount.
  2. Organic Colors: Think light woods, blacks, browns, grays with a splash of color thrown in.
  3. Bold Colors: This can be a bit tricky. While the movement absolutely requires a more monochromatic, white-on-white-on-white look, there is something to be said for laying out a vivid Beni Ouarain rug or hanging some brilliantly colored tapestry.
  4. Natural Light: Now, this doesn’t mean demolishing an existing wall to achieve house-wide windows, it could be as simple as undressed windows and white walls.
  5. Textural Materials: Again with the woods, wools, natural fibers, glass.
  6. A Minimilists Sophistication: Clean lines, angles, open spaces. A less is more approach. This is a style that will allow you to dispose of that which you don’t truly love.

Moroccan Rugs on Walls

It was an eleven-day expedition across Morocco. In the high mountains, we discovered the silken, milky-white Beni Ouarain. In the south, the poppy-red flat weaves said to be hurling towards extinction. The central mountains introduced us to the colorful Azilal while the Sahara showed off her more understated carpets, like those of the nomadic Tuareg people. Over those two weeks, with our brows furrowed, we studied, haggled and made lifelong friends in the various market towns…

Cutting a Rug

unnamed (9)

Rug shopping can be difficult. Sometimes, you can’t find the right one… rather, it finds you. Coveted Home recently fell into a collection of vintage rugs and still can’t quite come to terms with our good luck. This might sound a bit nutty, but I believe that each rug has it’s own personality. If you saw them in the shop, I just know you’d agree! Until then, feel free to check them out on our Chairish storefront right here.

Currently, we have 4 small kilims. They’re beautiful and have that lovely wear that distinguishes them from Pottery Barn fare. Each measures roughly 2′ x 3′ and would make a wonderful entryway or kitchen rug. Additionally, wouldn’t they be smart wall hangings?


If you’re looking to add color to a room, this vintage wool Russian rug would be an excellent way to go. At 13′ x 10′, it’s ginormous! And absolutely stunning. We currently have it on display at the store and find it to be a glutton for compliments.


Finally, this wool rug from Afghanistan is softer than the rest and certainly more traditional. At 3’10” by 5’8″, it’s the perfect size for an entry way. We also think it would look lovely if layered over a sisal. The colors are shades of brick and cream, making it a neutral piece that could fit in almost any decor.

Check out these pieces and more on Chairish! We’re always adding new inventory. Not to mention, it’s a great way to “visit” the shop from afar : )

Look! What’s New.

Okay. So the stars haven’t necessarily aligned for us to enjoy an early spring, but I would go ahead and count them as lucky with our latest additions to the shop!  We have just received a shipment from MARGINS, a California-based print studio, whose works “draw on the natural world and numerous spiritual traditions”.  We are featuring their fascinating Moon Calendars in a variety of colors, all of which are custom framed.

We have also been graced with the presence of Jules, a gorgeous polished brass and glass dining table from the Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams spring collection. She is part of a vast collection of similar occasional pieces, all of which are available to order through Coveted Home. Lastly, we are restocked on our ever-popular Dash & Albert rugs in both woven cotton and indoor/outdoor polypropylene. We have a difficult time keeping these guys in, so stop by the shop today to snag a coveted 2×3 that have arrived in springlike shades of coral and blue.

Lumberjack Fantasies

Baby, it’s cold outside. This single digit temperature streak we are experiencing right now in the Midwest has caused all of us to daydream in flannel and fur. To be clear, I am not complaining one bit. In fact, I am fully embracing the “Brawny Man” mentality. My home currently smells of evergreen and is thick with layers of plaid and woodland inspired holiday decor. If you are searching for the perfect stocking stuffer for him or you desire to add some “Lumberjack Chic” to your home and wardrobe, our featured picks will be sure to please.

VintagePendletonAdLove this vintage Pendleton ad. “His & Hers” matching plaid robes for Christmas morning? Yes, please! Image via Pinterest.

FallonPlaidInspirationThis may be the epitome of “Lumberjack Chic” and all of which is on Fallon’s wishlist right now.

JCrewScarfThe go-to accessory this season! Vintage or new, a plaid wool scarf (this one from J. Crew) will transform an ordinary ensemble into a rugged one.

FilsonShirtFilson’s Alaskan Guide Shirt is best worn for hunting, shooting, or sipping hot cocoa while gazing at Christmas lights on The Plaza. Made of 100% cotton with a stylish, flattering fit.

JcrewIPhoneCaseWhat better way to showcase your smartphone than in wood grain? Don’t worry. This iPhone case from J. Crew is made of rubber so splinters will not be an issue.

PendletonThrowPendleton’s Yakima Camp Blanket was designed to meet the rigorous demands of the wilderness. I like to think it was designed to keep my toes warm as I watch White Christmas with the family.

StanleyOne of my favorite collections to gift during the holidays. I grew up watching my dad tote around his Stanley thermos in the classic green, but the company has since expanded their color options.

LumberjackSoapThe cedar wood oil in this soap is extracted from actual tree bark and makes a fantastic stocking stuffer for the bearded, axe-wielding men in your life.

Plaid Deer AntlersSarah Ives, the owner of Upscale Downhome, dresses up vintage deer antler mounts with a touch of plaid to each. She is a part-time teacher with a passion for design and a downright winner in my mind.

wood_knivesI imagine that our boxed set of Stag Horn Steak Knives would make a meat-eating man, or woman, very happy this Christmas.

TattersallRugThe Tattersall Collection from Dash & Albert available at the shop would be the ultimate woodsy addition to an entryway or kitchen floor.

silver_candlestickWe can’t get enough of our Polished Antler Candlesticks that are currently featured in the shop. If this isn’t “Lumberjack Chic”, then what is?


Interior designer, Scot Meacham Wood has an area of his home designed entirely for entertaining. What does he use most? Tartan and tons of texture.

Happy Holidays!

Making a Wishlist a Reality

When it comes to moving, most people would say it is the worst. I beg to differ. Although packing does feel like a chore (we move in a week and I have barely filled up a shoe box), I feel like this has given me the opportunity to start fresh with design (just one inspiring space shown above). I have been dreaming of our new home for weeks. I have completely envisioned the layout of first floor, down to the oddities displayed above the fireplace mantel. Although I come prepared in most areas of home furnishings, I have made a list of items that I would love to acquire in order to complete our future abode.

1. Area Rug for dining room (underneath our “found” brass and octagon shaped glass top dining table)

Dash & Albert Diamond Indoor/Outdoor Rug (available at Coveted Home)



2. Pull up side table for living room (next to a rattan loveseat with upholstered chambray cushion)

Donm Palm Kenyan Baskets (available at Coveted Home)



3. A collected assortment of throw pillows

5. Decorative lamp finial (for existing natural rattan table lamp in the dining room)
