Furnishing in Scandinavian style: cosiness and urban flair
Landsberg am Lech - Organic shapes, natural materials and friendly colours are the main features of the Scandinavian interior design style. To put it short, modern and flexible are the two best words to describe the linear, light ambience of this fashionable style. Like the Bauhaus principles, form follows function in Scandinavian design – the Scandinavians like practical things without frills.
Speaking of colours, pastel shades, white and strong contrasts are brought into focus. Wood is the predominant material. It is the preferred material for floors and furniture. Eye-catching patterns adorn soft furnishings and accessories. With their colourful playfulness, they provide interesting contrasts. As it is generally dark in the north, light also plays an important role.
The right wood art matching the style
Ash is the perfect material for chairs in Scandinavian style due to its light colour and its characteristic grain. Wood structure is similar to that of oak. The clearly demarcated annual rings of the ash provide a decorative, irregular grain. Ash is stable, hard and yet elastic and is, therefore, frequently used in furniture making.
The wood is yellow to reddish-white with an irregular brown core whose colours vary from light brown through to dark brown. The colours varying from light brown to dark brown and the characteristic marking turn ash furniture into decorative elements in any indoor ambience. Due to its high level of stability, it is perfect for furnishing busy areas such as restaurants or cafés. Restaurants create a fashionable and elegant yet simple ambience with carefully coordinated tables and accessories. Ash chairs also cut a good figure in waiting areas.
When combined with Scandinavian design, ash demonstrates its specific features. Its strongly grained surface emphasises the clear, simple and organic shapes. GO IN offers new chairs in Scandinavian style with three possibilities with regard to armrests and backrests. They are available in two colours – light and Merano brown ash – and intended to be equipped with seat cushions. The grain and structure of the ash are very attractive in both colours and make any chair an individual item. The three models, one of which has armrests, can also be combined with one another and provide a harmonious, but varied overall appearance.
The wide range of covers at GO IN makes a wide variety of combinations possible. Three imitation leather colours (anthracite, coffee brown and taupe) are in stock and can, therefore, be delivered particularly quickly.
