Why do we love Scandinavian design? It’s something to do with the calm, clean lines and the confident use of pattern and colour. There’s something uncluttered, modern (without being too minimal) and relaxing about scandi design. Time always seems in short supply and stress levels potentially high, so anything that helps create a sense of calm and order has to be a good thing, right? Check out some of our favourite home accessories beautifully made in Britain and inspired by Nordic and Scandinavian design.

Above: John Green’s award-winning Embrace table, handmade in England from bent plywood is a modern take on the iconic Isokon Penguin Donkey. This stunning piece of furniture naturally forms two low modern tables that are then ‘embraced’ together in order to form a storage unit / magazine rack / occasional table. Whilst apart the small tables also function well as a laptop table, a bench and desk for kids or even as serving tray for breakfast in bed. Each unit is signed, stamped and numbered upon completion. £275 Buy now >>
