Its emphasis on minimalism gives it a timeless appeal while its commitment to sustainability aligns with peoples’ mindfulness for the planet. If you are looking to add more Scandinavian design to your life, these are five Scandi-cool brands we think you should know.

Puik Design
This Danish brand offers a diverse collection of home furnishings and decor at a variety of price points, making it easy to add some contemporary Dutch design to your home. Stemming from the founders’ passion for art and design, Puik Design balances functionality with aesthetics using a clean and minimalist palette. Some of my personal favorite items are their glassware that look like gems, their Clork Clock for a pared down take on the everyday clock, and their BOKK line which uses steel to create graphic, statement-making bases for their stools.

Peek into any designer home and I can almost guarantee you that you’ll find Menu somewhere in the interiors. As a brand that incorporates both Nordic and Japanese styles into its designs, Menu brings an elevated touch that’s never ostentatious or overly precious. In my home, we use the Carrie Lamp as ambient lighting in our backyard but we’ve also used it in our kids’ room which we feel comfortable doing since the bulb doesn’t get hot. Of course, the Bottle Grinders are a must have in any modern home. Next on my list: the Gravel Rug, a bubbly-looking rug that’s inspired by stones on a pebbled beach, and a small Échasse vase, for a pretty way to hold our cut flowers from the garden.

This family-owned brand values sustainable sourcing and manufacturing to create their line of furniture and home accessories. Nearly every piece has an element of wood incorporated into the design, a design aesthetic that stems from Skagerak’s emphasis on the beauty of nature. We use our Reform table, bench, and Mira chairs daily to enjoy a meal outdoors or hang out in our backyard. While the outdoor wear and tear has been near nonexistent (a testament to the quality of wood and steel), we also aren’t afraid for the teak to develop its silvery patina. Simply put, Skagerak perfectly embodies Danish design that will stand the test of time.

Eva Solo
From kitchenwares to pots and planters, Eva Solo designs items to beautify your space and add ease of functionality to your daily routines. That’s partly the beauty of Nordic design, there is a careful consideration towards how things work. For example, our oil carafe never leaves drops because the double metal tip catches any residual spillovers, something you don’t appreciate until you’ve used dispensers that gradually leave behind trails of oil. If you want to make cooking or even just brewing up your next cup of coffee more enjoyable, Eva Solo has everything you could possibly need.
