Scandi Meets Rustic

European Design, Western Sensibility

Nordic design and Scandinavian minimalism use soft hues and textures to maximize light, emphasizing clean lines, utility, and simple, cozy furnishings.

Alternatively, uniquely American rustic interiors embody an adventurous spirit, incorporating elements from nature in their raw and imperfect state.

When Scandi meets Rustic, nature-inspired, sophisticated, and functional spaces emerge. It is no secret why these design approaches work well together for Western lifestyles; casual, no-fuss, sophisticated, and fresh.

Furniture purveyor Scandinavian Designs first opened as a small storefront in San Rafael, California in 1963 by native Norwegian Erling Eide. 2023 marks its 60th year bringing Nordic design into Western homes. Using an array of materials to create a minimalist, but warm and welcoming furnishings, sleek linear shapes combine with richly textured wood grains, leather, and textiles to create complexity, warmth, and comfort. 

The key to this style is visual variety, mixing the organic feel of traditional rustic design with streamlined modern style by pairing classic comfort with modern aesthetics to create a space that exudes polished, rugged elegance.
