SCANDIVINTAGE

January 31, 2013

We obsess slightly over interiors with a white base and patterns/colour that give it a pop, but this home made us a little extra excited. High gloss white floors, pops of electric blue, iconic furniture and funky retro fabrics create a modern take on Scandinavian vintage. This lovely apartment is designed by Helsinki and Paris-based […]

THE BRONZE AGE

January 13, 2013

This central Stockholm apartment has a beautiful golden-brown oak floor that balances out the high ceilings and white base; and lets each piece of furniture stand out individually, while unifying to a whole interior design scheme.

FINDING BALANCE

November 4, 2012

Natural wood elements add warmth and interest to a cool graphic or neutral colour palette. Don’t be afraid to combine different wood species for added depth. A rustic natural wood floor, combined with a contemporary and monochrome kitchen for balance – as seen in this Index Tower apartment in DIFC with Kährs Oak Oyster. Images […]

STUDIO LIVING

November 1, 2012

This lovely studio apartment in Gothenburg, Sweden shows how easily you can create a lovely and functional space even in a small place.

WASHED OUT

October 30, 2012

Light oak floors, multiple layers, white walls, splashes of earth tones, iconic Fritz Hansen furniture and an overdose of light through surrounding glass. This architectural dream represents all that is contemporary Scandinavian minimalism. To get the look, opt for Oak Tide by Kährs Lodge Collection. Oak Tide has a white pigmented, matt lacquered or nature oil surface […]

GLOWING EMBER

SCANDIMERICAN

September 9, 2012

Walnut flooring is often associated with New York’s Upper East Side classic style of interior setting which is very beautiful in itself, but after seeing these incredibly inspirational images by Hitta Hem, we are shown how to “untraditionally” combine Scandinavian urban minimalism with the ultimate American wood floor classic in a revolutionary new style, which […]

ASH, NOT SO ASHEN

August 26, 2012

Ash is a strong, hard wood species, even harder than Oak. This wood species is pale in a typical Scandinavian way with fine, brown streaks and few discreet knots. It has a relatively long grain and ambers over the years. Ash is used to make tools, wood flooring and furniture. According to Norse mythology, Odin – […]

BOLD AND BEAUTIFUL

August 15, 2012

I was just flipping through the latest issue of InsideOut magazine, when I came across Natuzzi‘s advertisement with the slogan “Benvenuti a casa/Welcome home.” Naturally, as we are in the wood flooring business, my eyes shot straight down to the black floor in the picture (and then to the furniture, of course). So I decided […]
