AU Edit | The Danish Home

An interior that includes Danish design is one that puts function on a par with form whilst appreciating the beauty and skill of true craftsmanship.

Mid-Century Modern Danish design included principles seeking to bring harmony to artistic expression and industrial advances.  Discreet and unpretentious, each object or piece of furniture was designed not simply for design’s sake, but also to have a purpose and a usefulness which would match its aesthetic.  Its pioneers were true craftsmen, many having first been master carpenters and cabinetry makers, but all committed to bringing outstanding functional design to a populist consumer base in a non-elitist manner.

Clean lines, streamlined shapes and simple silhouettes continue to lend modern Danish interiors a level of minimalism where comfort remains uncompromised and the classic and traditional can sit unobtrusively alongside the contemporary.  Danish design is still known for its use of wood and natural materials as well as its sleek lines and sophistication; incredibly structured, it is clear to see the architectural influence in Danish pieces.  There too, is the application of anatomical knowledge in the curves and planes of its furniture.

A Danish home draws from its rich, principled heritage to combine organic shapes and colours with ageless design pieces.  Perfectly balanced and discreet, it harmonises artistry and function with the technological demands of the modern world.
