Scandinavian / Nordic Style in black and white palette.. Known for simplicity & functionalism. Cozy, minimalistic, uncluttered. Furniture pieces – almost sculptural, art-like; exude understated elegance. Scandinavian designers & their works – furniture and lighting pieces – have become iconic. Emphasis on nature & natural materials. The Scandinavian peoples’ post WWII migration to US largely influenced US furniture makers, hence the similarities between SCANDI & MIDMOD furniture.
