Trend: Scandinese

A fusion of Scandinavian clean lines and Japanese artisanal minimalism sees East meets West in this striking Scandinese trend from Oak Furnitureland.

Japan and Scandinavia are superpowers when it comes to style and, while miles apart geographically, their aesthetics share a close connection that’s influenced by sleek silhouettes and authentic materials. Co-existing with a mutual respect, the Scandinese trend from Oak Furnitureland is a serene union that brings the best of both worlds to your home.

Scandinese Living Room

While monochrome is the key to this pared-back palette, the Coco accent chair is upholstered in a tactile teal velvet which brings a harmonious pop of peacock blue to the living room scheme. The high back, gentle curve on the arms, generous seat and deeply padded headrest feel substantial and inviting while the striking cross base suspends the chair to lend it lightness. 

The same dark metal accents on the chair are picked up by the Brooklyn bookcase and other accessories to promote a seamless sense of space which flows effortlessly around the furniture and through the room.

Scandinese Dining Room

Made to last using traditional carpentry techniques, the Brooklyn dining range introduces on-trend dark metal accents helping the feeling of space and elegance to flow seamlessly amongst furniture and accessories alike. If you don’t want to hide a beautiful tabletop with linens, place two or three fabric placemats side by side down its centre for a runner effect that creates a focal point without hiding too much wood.

Scandinese Bedroom

Zen and hygge live in perfect harmony in this bedroom. Classic Scandi shades in a grey palette calm and cocoon to set the mood. The minimalism that influences this trend is echoed in the furniture’s clean lines. 

Suspended on a sleek dark metal frame, the bed’s solid oak headboard and platform are finished in a wax which emphasises the unique grain pattern and brings a brightness to the room that contrasts beautifully with the midnight blue and slate coloured bedding. Further shafts of light shine from the Hove bedside table and Hove TV unit. The collection’s retro style feels fresh and its curved corners and recessed handles are in keeping with simple Scandinese design principles.
