Often, in addition to clean and simple lines, Scandinavian pieces are characterized by their geometry. Often these are rectangular shelves, artistic triangular pieces of metal and round patterns on lamps and tables. These elements are very present on the products of Ikea, for example. One way to make the strictly modern sofa softer is by incorporating tufting.

A lot of Scandinavian furniture is inspired by mid-century design. You are going to find a lot of flared and tapered wooden legs, for example. When choosing Scandinavian furniture for your living room, go for pieces that you really like. If you are a fan of the 50s and 60s, then furnish your living room with pieces inspired by this era.

Which is also very important for the Scandinavian living room decor these are the wooden elements. It could be a wooden floor or just wooden details, but wood, in general, occupies an important place in the interior. Wooden beams and wooden furniture lend a golden glow to modern interiors.

Do not be afraid of color if you want to create a Scandinavian interior. Bright interiors and warm wood accents are important components of Scandinavian design, but so too is the use of bright colors. A great way to add a splash of color to your decor is by opting for colorful accessories like cushions, vases and furniture. Another tip that will help you brighten up the living room is to hang a colorful piece of art on one of the walls. Choose shades that follow with the rest of your decor and the chosen decorative theme. Do not hesitate to incorporate several bright colors with interesting patterns and prints.

Another Scandinavian company that often works with interesting prints is Marimekko. To make your living room even more original, opt for decorative cushions in interesting shapes and colors. And don’t forget the sofas, chairs and armchairs. It is true that for some a sofa with printed patterns may be too garish. If you don’t like this style of sofas either, then go for a chair with printed patterns instead. But let’s not forget classic Scandinavian patterns like checks and stripes. Red and blue are colors often used in Scandinavian decor and they are also perfect for living room decor especially in winter.
