Scandinavian / Nordic Style – characteristic style of the region. Known for simplicity & functionalism. Furniture pieces – almost sculptural & exude understated elegance. Scandinavian designers & their works have become iconic. Color scheme- mostly light to keep room bright during long winters. Cozy, minimalistic, uncluttered. Emphasis on nature & natural materials. Their post WWII migration to US largely influenced US furniture makers, hence the similarities between SCANDI & MIDMOD furniture.
