An idea of design linked to history, tradition, necessity and elegance. Let’s discover it together on ProduceBlog!
The famous Scandinavian or Nordic Design chair is a product that has been popular in every home and office for almost 70 years. One small clue though: it’s not exclusive to Ikea!
When a product, a brand, a style are irrevocably linked, it is difficult to get them out of the common imagination; this is why so many brands are successful: they tie themselves to a precise style or product, often ignoring how much the market can actually range. If we take the classic Nordic chair as an example, but all Scandinavian design products in general, most people immediately think about Ikea.
However, not many people know it and that is why we are telling you, other suppliers and eCommerce also offer Nordic design products; not just copies, but high-quality original products, often at very attractive prices.
, for example, has a whole range of Scandinavian and Nordic design chairs.
In today’s article we show you the best; without bothering Ikea or other industrial giants.
A little story: what is the Nordic (or Scandinavian) style?
Although the two terms often seem to be interchangeable in the field of furniture and design, there is actually a small difference; by Nordic style we mean the type of design that emerged immediately after the Second World War in the countries of Northern Europe. Attention to shapes, the nature of materials and an eye for functionality are the main guidelines.
The Scandinavian style is nothing more than an evolution of it, which saw the light around the 1950s. More towards modern, it has several currents, some of which break away from the rules of this design (vintage lines or use of metal, even if raw); fundamental characteristics are the predominance of white – in countries where the sun is rare and as much light as possible is needed – harmony of forms, even if apparently chaotic, wise use of wood and its enhancement with other materials.
Although some brands, including Ikea, have embraced this style over the years, there are many designers and marketplaces offering Scandinavian design products. Some of these, focusing more on the quality of the materials and manufacture than on the brand, such as ProduceShop, offer them in their catalogue at extremely attractive prices; without winking at customers’ habits.
