Scandinavian Design Movement
The modern Scandinavian design movement first started in the 1950s alongside the modernist movement in Europe and America. Although even before this era, designers from the Scandinavian region have already incorporated elements from this theme into their designs.
This theme is characterised by hues of black, white, grey and even blue, alongside sleek furnishing. Wooden elements such as hardwood floors, or furnishings made from woods such as oak or walnut are also distinctive components in Scandinavian-styled homes. These types of woods blend seamlessly with the neutral colours characterised by this theme. Rugs are generally not favoured, which also makes it easier to showcase the natural, aesthetic appeal of the hardwood floors.
