Scandinavian design emerged in the 1950s in the Nordic countries Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Finland—a movement characterized by simplicity, minimalism and functionality.
The idea that beautiful and everyday objects should be affordable to all is behind the development of modernism and functionalism. This came about with the emergence of social democracy in the 1950s, and the increased availability of new low-cost materials and methods for mass production.
Scandinavian design makes use of form-pressed wood, plastics, anodized or enameled aluminum or pressed steel.
The Modern Nordic collection in Our Home showcases Scandinavian design in contemporary wooden furniture—sleek, minimalist, ergonomic, light and compact, yet elegant.
Wood is prominently used in the Springfield Sofa, Churchill L-Shaped Sofa and Salid loveseat. The Conley Dining Set is simple yet sophisticated.
There are also the Red Stanton Ottoman with wooden legs, wood-top Echo side table and Maretta Nesting Table.
The Modern Nordic collection is available at the newly renovated Our Home at SM Megamall branch and in other Our Home branches.
