Back in the day, you had to be resourceful to survive in the northern atmospheres. Craftsmanship has been passed down from generation to generation in Nordic countries. As a result, attention to detail and quality have become appreciated staples of Scandinavian style today. Scandinavian style has a design philosophy that favors classic elements over trends (which quickly go in and out of fashion), making timelessness an important trait. These go hand-in-hand with functionality, since, for a design to be truly functional, it has to be durable in terms of both quality and style. This doesn’t make Scandinavian design boring or plain, however. Nordic countries are known for offering some of the most innovative cutting-edge and finely crafted designs across creative industries.
