A Bourgeois Trend with Some Redeeming Qualities

Posted by on

You may have started hearing a peculiar sounding word in the press lately. The term hygge (pronounced hoo-guh) is a Danish term referring to surrounding yourself with quality, comfort, relaxation and in doing so creating cozy inviting atmospheres. For those who haven't heard of it before, it's best described as "the art of being consciously cozy". 

Hygge has been a way of life in Danish culture for many years, manifesting itself in various aspects of daily life. It's presence adding to the joyful and easy-going nature of its residents. The Nordic countries consistently have us beat in the happiness quotient...by far. It's this overwhelming happiness that has prompted many to be curious how they do it and hygge seems to be at the root of it all.

Here in California our philosophy on life isn't far off from the Danish hygge. We enjoy surrounding ourselves with quality, comfort and relaxation. Much like the Danes, we enjoy creating inviting atmospheres, indulging in fine wines and spending time with our loved ones. Even so there's always room to have a little morehygge in your life.

The best way to experience hygge is in your own home. By creating an environment that helps you to unwind, you'll be able to experience a little bit of hygge everyday. To help bring hygge into your home, we've collected some of our favorite designs for you below. 

Fittingly, the first piece in our collection pays homage to the Nordic conquerors that once inhabited Denmark and its surrounding region. Our Viking Lounge come in both solid ash (shown below) and solid walnut. It's the perfect place to unwind after a long days plundering.
