The Scandinavian Modern design has been a very strong influence in our homes since the 1930s.
Scandinavian design is characterized by simplicity, minimalism and warm functionality, with clean lines, flawless craftsmanship and understated elegance, using solid colour patterns , stripes, checks and other geometric designs. The Scandinavian design is in its simplicity.
The use of colour and pattern bring the neutral background to life. The colour and patterns do not dominate the interior but introduce a splash of colour. Adding colour on the soft furnishings, lampshades and accessories.
In the pictures opposite I have chosen a grey and taupe triangular geometric pattern on a drum lampshade and a simple folksy style lampshade in a blue colour on soft white base.
